FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The 1st meeting will entail asking you about your fitness goals, limitations, and lifestyle.  I will do a quick strength, balance, and flexibility assessment so I know where to start with you.

I always meet you where you are fitness-wise.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

IFPA Certified since 2013.  Worked in a gym setting, which inspired my to open my own studio.

Also teach swimming in the summer months.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Your 1st 1/2 hour with me is always free.  You get to see me, the studio, and how I work with you.

Sessions are usually 1/2 hour.  They are as intense as you can stand them and no one has ever asked for an hour session with me.

I generally charge $25 per 1/2 hour session or 5 sessions for $100.  I sometimes run specials and offer special pricing for working with 2 people in a session.


How did you get started teaching?

I started running to quit smoking when I was 19.  As time went on I became interested in cross-training and joined a gym.  One day at the gym, a woman came up to me and asked if I was a trainer.  That started me thinking about the benefits I'd gotten for consistently working out and eating right.  I feel I owe it to others to pass on what I've learned and help them attain their fitness goals.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with men and women, teenagers to 60 year olds, and various limitations.  The most common limitations are back and shoulder, followed closely by knee problems. 

One of the most gratifying things I do is help people who feel they can't have a quality workout because of a physical problem.  We figure out a way to adapt, have fun, and get stronger.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

My advice when looking for a personal trainer is to:

1) See if she fits the part.  If your trainer is overweight or unable to do the things she expects of you, move on. 

2) Feel comfortable with your trainer-is he safety conscious, respectful, a good listener?  If you don't feel safe or that you're getting 100% of his attention, that's a big problem.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Please feel free to ask any and all questions.  If you are experiencing pain, let me know.  If you don't feel challenged enough, let me know (but that's never happened).
