I hired Steve as my personal trainer two years ago to help me take off 110 lbs. He was training me three times a week and coaching me on how to eat. We were showing some progress but I was still having problems with self control in regards to my eating. Since Steve is also a nationally certified Hypnotherapist he did hypnotherapy for weight loss and that finally did the trick. I finally took off the weight, increased my energy and lowered my blood pressure ! Besides this I hired Steve around the same time to train my 87 year old dad who has age related issues. Steve met with my dad once a week for a year before he moved down to Florida, my dad always enjoyed the sessions while Steve always played some great music during those sessions. Now that my dad moved down to Florida he misses those sessions with Steve. The improvements to my day to day living was life changing, having Steve as my personal trainer was like having the key to the door that shut me out of so many things. Steve's knowledge and variability to meet my needs was amazing. Steve and his training gave me confidence to meet my goals. My life outside of training is greatly improved. I highly recommend him as he knows what he is doing ,very professional and cares He is also training people at any age. Sherri C.Feb 22, 2017Verified
When I was in High School Steve's personal training sessions helped me get in great condition for wrestling, football and baseball in ways that my coaches and the trainers did not. I packed on 20 lbs. of muscle while increasing my speed, agility flexibility and stamina. He introduced me to a wide range of modalities from metabolic conditioning ,TRX, visual training techniques and taught me how to eat better also. Now a few years out of college at my desk job I recently hired Steve to get back to training me and look forward to my monthly Thai Massage from him . He's a rock star !! Tim D.

Steve is an excellent personal trainer and massage therapist. Anytime he comes for a session, we get to decide if we would like a massage, Qui Gong session, Thai massage, or Yoga stretches. He seems to find every knot that needs work on my body. He has coached me to increase my cardio and eventually achieve my weight loss goal. He knows his stuff! I'd recommend him highly!Dec 11, 2016
Steve has an extensive skill set and experience that he draws upon. I came to Steve with an injury. He was able to tailor an exercise regiment that effectively overcame the physical limitations that I had. Through mobility and strength conditioning I now have no back pain, feel great, and more energized. Now I am working with him to maintain what we have worked towards and beyond. Furthermore, Steve develops a comprehensive regiment tailored to my goals. He incorporates his knowledge of nutrition, massage, and psychology into the training experience. Steve is extremely flexible with scheduling.Feb 9, 2019Verified
Steve has been great trainer combining Yoga, Qi Gong and modern weight training so it has been the perfect combination for me. Super motivational, real professional, and great friend. I highly recommend him. FitzMar 8, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have many payment options for each of my professional services, depending on which service it is and also depending on your situation. My rates are all set but I automatically discount my rates for military, police and teachers as well. Besides this I might adjust my rate for seniors and college students. With that said, I normally charge $ 80 for each training session ,$ 100 for each massage/energy therapy session. I tend to adjust my rate as well for potential clients through Thumbtack as I am trying to build new clientele though it. I also might adjust my rate depending on either me going to them or them coming to me.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?If the potential client's focus is on fitness we discuss what their fitness/wellness goals are to start. I attempt to find out more about them by highly recommending my very extensive fitness evaluation that incorporates an11 page wellness inventory questionnaire ,health history questionnaire;along with various physical tests to measure my clients level of fitness and potential for injury using a core functional movement screening. Among other things filled out when I start with a client is a sheet asking which types of exercise is desired. If a client has some medical concerns, being treated by a medical professional I will always want to have an open communication with that professional as I find it's very important to be on the same page with them. If my client main desire is on setting up for massage or energy therapy appointment we will discuss that as well, as some clients only want that or along with physical training. Just mentioning that as a massage, energy therapist I have been doing this for thirty four years, trained in many styles. I have some cross over clients who hire me fore both personal training and massage therapy I have different payment plans for the clients convenience and stress free.
