Dylan is very personable, well educated about the topic of overall diet, health and personal training. I look forward to working with him many months to come.Mar 31, 2017Verified
Mr. Kittrell not only has a solid understanding of workout regime and diet, but also provides ways to do it so it's not overwhelming. I've been to so many "trainers" who tend to just spit facts at you and expect you to do the rest, but Mr. Kittrell was able to actually help me implement it in my daily routines. I'm actually finally feeling like my training is effective. Would recommend 10/10 especially for beginnersFeb 9, 2017
Dylan helped me out with starting to, and committing to a weight loss regiment. I was fairly lost when starting out, and he was able to assess my situation and help me work out exactly what I would need to do. Since then, he's been doing check ups on me and making sure that I'm sticking with my plan, and he continues to offer me advice and wisdom.Feb 10, 2017
Hey, my name is Logan D. Lewis. Proud to say I was Dylan's first client! He help me out amazingly! He's easy to understand and you can tell he have passion in this field, his knowledge is outstanding and he's always looking into more and actual effective ways to help. You won't be disappointed! He also kept a note book out of his own pocket to keep track of my progress!Mar 15, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is contingent and open to change based on your needs, capabilities, and availabilities but here are some general remarks. One time consultations in which I write you a program and that's all: 50$ for training program, 50$ for dietary program, 75$ for both. In-person training ranges from 50$/month (one session a week, 4 a month) to 200$/month (5 sessions a week). (This is ~10$ per hour-long session). Hiring me full-time includes both the dietary and training protocols, of course (you don't have to buy those individually). This does not include the price of any gym that you might be training in.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First I will need to get to know you and your goals. Are you trying to lose fat? Are you trying to gain muscle? Are you trying to do both? Are you trying to gain purely strength and nothing else? Are you trying to increase cardiovascular health? Are you trying to just increase general well-being and health? Are you trying to cut for a photo shoot? Are you training for a sports event? These are all things that will help me design an effective workout program for you. Second I will need to get to know your availability. How frequently are you able or willing to train? What is your level of motivation for meeting your goal or goals? Do you have access to a gym or do I need to provide you with such resources? Lastly, and this will be mostly determined by your answers given to the questions in the second paragraph, we will need to establish price. This will be determined by how frequently you plan to exercise, how in-depth you want my services to be (in-person guidance, online guidance, mere program prescription, etc.)
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Many will be puzzled by my college education, which is primarily in philosophy (though I was only a couple hours from having a psychology minor). Philosophy doesn't directly relate to much of anything. But that's the beauty of it. It's a very broad discipline. It's a disciple which teaches you skills more so than content. It teaches you how to analyze material, form arguments for and against position effectively, open-mindedness, skepticism and self-education. These skills are invaluable for damn near everything you could go into, aside from pure manual labor. I'm actually very glad that my education didn't focus on exercise science. Because it didn't, I can look at exercise science with a fresh and nuanced perspective. There is so much dogma within exercise academia, it's not even funny. Having a background in a discipline that allows me to spot dogma quickly, criticize it and come up with a more effective alternative has been indispensable to my success as a personal trainer. In order to work at most gyms today, one has to have some sort of certification, however Therefore, I had no choice but to become certified. This was mere self-preservation, not hypocrisy. My certification is with NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine).
