What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I stay up to date on the latest developments by reading medical journals, magazines, and researching the latest "craziness" or "fad" I hear about. Half of what they say will change and they'll prove themselves wrong before long so I use them to make sure that my simple points and objectives are still on point and in line with the basis of how the human body and the world work.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Our pricing system I'm hoping is pretty simple.
Each Package Includes UNLIMITED Boot Camp times and locations.
Firm Body Program for 3 Months is only $197/month.
Complete Body-Transformation 6 Month Program is only $179/month.
Both of these are a savings of between $100 and $300.
If you are not sure that you want to have a "Firm-body" or "Complete body Transformation" then a month to month plan looks like this:
On a month to month basis (without the packages), for $325 for the first month of Boot Camp that covers your own body-hardening and fat-blasting kettlebell. Literally the last peace of training equipment you'll EVER need. That's the only thing that I have and use so I stand by that. The following months are then $247/month.
A speciality Camp we have is call "Boot Camp Boutique" and those details you can find on our website. It's an elite resort package with a getaway, yoga, bootcamp, and dance exercises with spa treatment and luxurious dining. It's our dream program that we put together if we could do what we dreamed about doing for someone from when you leave your home to come to when you get back. No detail is overlooked. If you have any questions or can not find it simply email me and I'll help you find it.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I decided to get into my line of work when I was 17 because I had been an athlete all of my life and was fascinated with the body since I was 8. In helping other people to get fit it helped me to stay in shape and also seemed to match that I can help others while I'm helping myself.
I then decided to stay with it because there is so much healing through movement and exercise and I feel that my contribution to the world was to provide this healing in this way. I wanted to go to medical school and my degree is premedical but I Hate medicine and pharmaceutical influence so this is the most natural way to keep people healthy, heal what's currently ailing them, and even aid in depression which is a huge plague in this country and the world.
Exercise is the most non-invasive form of healing there is and I'm literally shocked and fascinated at how that works and that keeps me motivated and excited daily.
What types of customers have you worked with?
My most common types of jobs right now are Boot Camps for middle-aged women who used to be in shape and are now out of shape for one reason or another.
I love to train men there too but men typically take more to get out and train in a group even if we're doing awesome warrior moves. They also DO NOT tell their friends that much at all and that makes it hard to get a good going. When we do get a group it's really fun =)
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I just trained a woman that limped to our location in the park yesterday and 45 minutes later she sounded like she had gone to church and got healed because she couldn't believe how much she could move and how much better she felt!!
You can't beat that sort of tesimony and feel good accomplishment with a stick.
The next thing that'll be awesome is if she doesn't need a hip replacement next year because of our sessions!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
The BEST advice I have for a customer looking to hire a provider like me is to know that when you enter our community that you have to keep in mind what you can and can't do and that's ok.
If we're doing something that is too tough for you at this point to have or ask for a modification of it so that you don't hurt yourself or feel inadequate. Everyone starts off where you do and you'll be shocked where you come in a short amount of time.
My other advice is to understand that the amount of money that you pay on food that kills you, prescriptions that are keeping you sick, and other activities that are not helping you live longer, happier, and healthier are WAY more expense that any personal training or Boot Camps Ever cost and almost any program that we have is going to save you a lot of money right now, in the long run, and help you to be happier, healthier, and live longer and save on insurance in the most cost-effective way that there is out there. Literally.
My father-in-law had a stroke directly related to diet. My clients have diabetes that wanes with exercising after one month. Blood pressure goes down. All of those visits to the doctor cost you WAY more than a year's worth of training in Any of our programs. A few hours in the emergency room cost one client as much as a month of personal training which in some cases will keep you out of there. The Boot Camp is not only funner, more enjoyable and pleasurable, but it also doesn't hurt as much physically and emotionally as having to go through the pain and frustration as some of those injuries.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What I wish that my customers knew about my profession is how much time it really takes to create and design a workout that will get them the results they're looking for. Even if the work out is predesigned, how much thought goes into tweaking it to make sure that it matches everyone that showed up that day.
I wish they knew that when they don't show up how much it affects the other people around them and how much of an impact that can have on the workout design.
Another thing that I wish they knew is how important it is to us that you actually lose weight. We honestly don't just want your money and that's not just because we're all great people. If we don't give you what you're paying for, which is a changed body and a fun experience doing it, then we're not doing our job and you're not as likely to come back which costs us more money, makes us look bad to the next person who wants to come, and makes us feel like we've failed.
If you lose weight, we make more money, you're happier, you tell someone something positive, we gain another customer, and we stay in good morale because we're delivering what we promised. It's a win-win-win situation.
We're good people but it's also business and we just want to do our job. The tough part is that so much of our job is dependent on what you do and eat the 23.5hours you're not with us. That's one of the toughest things to overcome in the world!
