What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I do continuing education all the time. I am ALWAYS looking for innovative functional ways to train clients. The more I know the better I am too, and able to transfer that to my clients.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
My pricing system depends on the client, where they want to train, and how long, and how many sessions they require.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have always been into fitness and after getting laid off from 3 civil service jobs in a horrible economy I decided to put what I love to do to work for others.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I help them focus on THEIR individual goals and create fun and functional exercises for them to alleviate boredom and resistance to exercise. I always change it up so they are never redundant and get bored.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
The Air Force client was definitely the best as he was a very difficult client to train and VERY resistant to training and change. His success proved to HIMSELF that he could succeed and has continued his training on his own!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I would advise them to research any and all certifications and make sure they are current. If they claim to be an "expert" at anything make them back that up. Expertise requires training and YEARS of practice of that expertise. Someone with ONE year of training and just acquired their PT certification is NOT an expert on anything. I never use the word "expert" I am not an expert at anything. However, I AM a specialist in Senior Fitness and I can back it by my training AND experience.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That we don't workout 8 hours a day. Our job is focused on YOU, the client not on our workout, and we don't workout with you.
