About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Clients choose personal fitness trainers for a wide variety of reasons. The reasons that they look for a personal trainer are as varied as their needs, then what can make a personal trainer standout for all of them? It isn’t the latest equipment or the elite clientele or the posh studios that make a personal trainer a standout among personal trainers. It’s attention to detail, consistency, the right attitude and a view of each client that is based on knowing them and their needs individually. Behavior Modification, Weight Management, Cardio Endurance, Muscular Strength & Endurance, Stress Management, Lifetime Fitness & Wellness. If you need the motivation to kick start a healthier lifestyle hire me. I'm all you need to take control of your lifestyle habits, stay active and fit, and achieve your highest potential for well-being. I will help you change unhealthy behaviors with my over 30 years of experience. My service stands out with the results my clients achieve from the years of experience I have.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The main positive about my job is that it is something I love doing. It is very social so you have the chance to interact with a lot of interesting people. Every client is different so there is never a boring moment being a personal trainer. I have recently welcomed a new client who has Muscular Dystrophy. It just shows that as humans we should never give up on anything and working with her brings me huge pleasure and job satisfaction. Never Say Your Too Old!

    Dan, is an amazing trainer. He definitely knows what he is doing. He is on time for every session, he prints out the workouts (with pictures) and encourages me on the days he is there. He is available if I'm struggling and always has great wisdom to keep me motivated. He is compassionate, strong, kind and definitely the best trainer I've ever met. If you are young or young at heart - if you want to lose just a little weight or struggle with your weight and also have medical problems - Dan is the trainer for you. He will give you 100% and if you do the same I promise you will see amazing results even if you never have before - as he will work with you to build the perfect workout.

    I contacted Dan for a family member, so cannot rate his actual training skills, but he was incredibly responsive, seemed to understand from our phone conversations what the issues were, and we are looking forward to working with him!

    I have a lot of good things to say about Dan, when we first met I was 6 months postpartum, and I was uncomfortable in my own body. I had a trainer before him and didn't see the results I wanted, so I lost faith. However, Dan was able to restore it. Just like everyone said, Dan tailors the program to your specific needs and goals. Then, he modifies it according to the areas that need more attention. Yet, what I think Dan has that the other trainers I have worked with lacked is his ability to connect with you. He really tries his best to build a relationship with his clients. If you are looking for a trainer who: 1- Tailors your workouts to your specific needs 2- Motivates you 3- Cares about achieving your goals as much as you do 4- Builds a relationship with you Then Dan is your guy!

    Dan has been the personal trainer for my husband and I for about three years. We are in our mid 70's. He has built our strength and flexibility through a double knee replacement and a shoulder replacement. By providing exercises that strengthen my core my cronic back pain is gone. We are stronger, have better balance, are more fit and feel great. He keeps encouraging us to lose weight even though we have not worked at it hard enough to meet our goals.

    Can't say enough positive things about Dan and his training methods. He builds the program around your goals and needs. I have been with two trainers before Dan, and there is no substituting the decades of experience and knowledge that he has. The program he wrote for me was so simply laid out that if it didn't work, it was because I didn't have the discipline, not because the plan wasn't good- so, accepting that a lifetime of good health will come from a 3-4 hour a week dedication is a prerequisite!

    I have been involved in sports and fitness for most of my life. My journey has not always traveled a straight and narrow path. A few bumps and detours have resulted in unfortunate distress that led me into a lifestyle of unhealthy eating and poor exercise habits. As a former fitness instructor, I knew I could be better. Dan Kritsonis is one the Pacific Northwest’s premiere fitness consultants. Passionate about health and wellness, and equipped with the appropriate credentials, Dan has been helping others pursue and achieve their goals for balanced and healthy living for over 30 years. Dedicated to continuous learning and innovation, he is focused on my unique requirements and fine tuning my exercise regimen to achieve better results faster while targeting goals that are safe and effective in meeting my needs. Feeling good is about more than physical outcomes. It's about emotional victories. After losing 100 pounds, I am on a healthy path to losing the remaining 30 pounds, renewing core strength, and continuing my journey toward emotional and physical balance. We all need someone to push, motivate, and guide us, as well as understand our strengths and weaknesses. Dan is helping me get maximum results by personally tailoring my training sessions while coaching and motivating me to do my best. With a master’s touch, Dan commits himself to a love of fitness and health. And because he is genuinely passionate about helping me reach my goals, I know I am in good hands!

    My husband and I were looking for a trainer who could work with people in their late 50's, and we were delighted to find Dan Kritsonis almost 3 years ago. Speaking just for myself, I was recovering from cancer treatment when I met Dan. I hadn't done weight training for more than 5 years and was concerned about being at high risk for lymphedema. While getting us going on a routine, Dan studied the facts about lymphedema and designed a routine for me that helped me strengthen my upper body while not overdoing the weight and the number of repetitions. Dan is the wisest trainer I've ever met. I recommend him whole-heartedly.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First is a complimentary interview. Going over goals and present health and any physical or mental obstacles that the prospective client needs to overcome. Once I have been hired then an assessment is given with a few simple fitness tests then a workout plan will be designed to the clients specific needs.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Even with the 30 years of experience I continue to learn more and more through seminars, clinics, and through the National Strength Coaches Association. There is no substitute for learning more.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
My most popular: Two sessions per week is my most popular, It offers two great workouts per week so you can be assured you will see results even quicker and stay on track towards success while building momentum each week to maintain motivation. My rates vary from $35 to $55 per session depending on travel time, or if involves rehab.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
After working in a health club atmosphere for quite a few years I wanted the one on one private approach to personal fitness training. In this type of atmosphere it is much more on a personal level.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with the average working person who just wants to look and feel better to clients who are athletes, those with type 2 diabetes , hip replacements, shoulder replacements, knee replacement. Also those who need to lose anywhere from 10 to 100lbs.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I had the opportunity to be hired by the world famous author JA Jance. Her physician had recommended me. In the beginning she could not do a single get up out of a chir without using the arms or in the restroom. After working with her and her husband they have both lost over 60 pounds in 8 months, and they both can perform over 20 sit to stands without using their arms. There balance has also improved over 60%.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure the trainer has at least 5 years experience and has worked with a wide range of age groups. Explains to you what expectations are needed to reach your goals.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How long has he/she been a personal trainer? Can they provide references? Does the trainer provide a free interview?
