Thrive Personal Training & Fitness
Thumbtack CustomerDec 26, 2017
I hired John as a personal trainer because I needed someone to help me stay on track with diet and exercise. I did a session with him, and I knew he was the one for me. He was professional and always pushed me to make that extra effort. Even if I couldn't do it, he was supportive and optimistic about me getting it next time. John will help you achieve your goals by giving you a detailed plan about what he expects from you. He helped me get to my goals, and if I was still living in the Twin Cities area, I would hire him again.Jul 19, 2017Verified

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?All programs are customized to the individual, so the overall price varies. Individual training starts at $45/session. My goal is to never let price limit you from working with me. I have clients who I train 3 times per week, and I clients I only see a couple of times a month. Obviously, the more often that we meet, the better. However, regardless of our training frequency, I will make sure that you know what to do between our sessions to make solid progress towards your goals!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The first thing we do is schedule a complimentary initial visit. This gives you a chance to check out the training facility and for us to get to get to know each other. Then we perform an assessment, which consists of: - Goal setting - Review of Exercise History (including any injuries or limitations) - Fitness Tests (typically body composition and a movement screen) - Discussion of Training Options We then determine what the best overall program will be for you - not just how often we're going to train together (typically 1, 2, or 3 times per week), but also what you'll need to do outside of our sessions to be successful.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I earned my Coaching Certification from the University of Minnesota-Morris in 2001. I've been a Certified Personal Trainer since 2003, both with ACE (American Council on Exercise) and NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine). I'm certified in MAT (Muscle Activation Techniques) and I'm a NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist. These accreditations allow me work with clients who are recovering from injuries, surgery, or transitioning from physical therapy to a more normal exercise regimen. I'm also a Certified Kettlebell Instructor. Lastly, as an athlete myself, I'm competed in football, track and field, and boxing. Recently I started competing in mud runs. I've also coached Track and Field.
