Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I like to have an initial phone call or Zoom Fitness/ Nutritional consultation and get to know each other a little bit better see what the client is looking for in a trainer? What they expect to get out of the Personal Training sessions and why they need a Personal Trainer? Most imortantly that I'm a good fit for their needs. We all have our specific niche we're really good at!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I've been in the health and fitness industry for over 20 years. Went to school for a BSN in Nursing and minored in Nutrition. I originally started in nursing working with quadriplegics, in home health care, psychiatric hospital, and lastly Scripps Encinitas in rehabilitation. That's when I had my aha moment! A nursing colleague of mine said " Natalie you always have all your little snacks packed in your scrubs, eat healthy, and always talking about working out! Why don't you become a Personal Trainer as well!" The rest is history I got my first Personal Training job at Frogs Club One in Encinitas California. I have been involved with Personal Training ever since. I was a Master Trainer and Fitness Director over all trainers at 24 Hour Fitness from Feb 2010- Nov. 2014. I've managed boutique fitness studios such as Anytime Fitness, and Club Pilates. I'm the owner of Frontdoor Fitness Elements since April of 2004 here in AZ serving Phoenix and all surrounding suburbs.
