- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
The prices you see on Thumbtack are monthly charges. Nutrition Coaching packages have a six month minimum commitment. To train with me in person, we do have to work out a membership fee with the Northampton Athletic club, my clients are entitled to a discount on this, otherwise there are no additional fees or charges for any of my services.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
With nutrition coaching, I'll send you a quick application form that asks a few basic questions about you and what you are looking for. The purpose is just to make sure that my services are a good fit. We'll set up an initial call just to chat, and give you a chance to ask any questions. The idea here is to see if we are a good match. At this point if you enroll and pay for the service. I will send you a welcome email with some info to get started, one thing being scheduling our first session. The first few sessions I am getting your "story", and we are collaborating on a plan for success. Eventually we'll be meeting remotely 2-3 times per month to set and adjust goals, discuss strategies for overcoming barriers, determine action items for the ensuing two weeks, celebrating success, and tweaking, adjusting the plan as needed. You can expect regular follow up and check in emails from me between our calls. For traditional personal training we'll meet, typically at the club (Northampton Athletic Club). We'll talk in more detail about your specific goals and expectations, as well as some background info that I'll need to know, such as health history, diet/exercise training history, age, and other lifestyle components. We may do some basic assessments to give me a better idea of where the customer is starting from (mobility wise, strength wise, etc) From there I'll make a recommendation that will best help you attain your goals. I offer a remote option for Personal Training as well, it is similar to the above. The main difference is I'll be corresponding virtually, putting together a customized workout routine for you that will specifically address your goals. I'll tailor it to your lifestyle, so you can perform it at home, at the gym, at the park, wherever your preference. We'll speak via phone monthly as well as through email/text. I'll update the program as you progress through it.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am certified as an exercise physiologist, as we as a strength and conditioning coach. I recently completed the Precision Nutrition Level 1 certification. I also have a Ph.D. in Kinesiology which included advanced study in nutrition.
