What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
All pricing is for monthly service (1,2, or 3 hours/week) rather than session packages and it includes all gym fees at the locations I currently contract with as a trainer. 1 price for everything paid at the first of the month to keep it simple for my clients. There are no cancellation fees, though service does not roll over to the next month if not used. I do discount for 3 and 6 month contracts.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I read research papers daily on all aspects of health, fitness, nutrition, supplementation, medications, and medical practices.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have been taking care of other people's health needs since I was 14 as a student athletic trainer. By the time I was 18 I was doing full scale rehab programs and training other trainers on how to assess people and write training programs. I have never done anything else.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Most of my clients come to me with physical issues that no doctor or therapist has been able to address or correct. They are mostly puzzles or they are alphas that just need some direction and a plan.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I developed a full scale training program for a basketball academy for grade 6-12 and into college along with a basic dietary plan for the week and during the game day. I also designed and installed the training facility with several pieces of equipment of my own design made specifically for the program.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure you are ready to change your life because you will not be the same person tomorrow. The only thing that will change your body and your health is your mind and your willingness to live a different life.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
There is more to it than counting reps....the only problem is that many trainers just count reps...
