I begin with a free assessment to learn the clients motivation and goals, upper body and lower body strength, core strength, and cardiovascular capabilities. I also have the client score certain exercises so I can learn what type of work out the client is most likely to enjoy. Then I put together a comprehensive program using my background in exercise science that us very unique, effective, SAFE, and enjoyable! I use personal bests to mark improvement rather than just the scale.

You can find pricing on my webite On Location Trainers. It depends on how many sessions you purchase, frequency of sessions, and county where you will be training.
I had a high paying, high stress, dissatisfying job that I lost to the poor economy in January 2009. I needed to do what I loved, what I was passionate about. I knew it would be fitness. I started out as a class instructor at a boxing gym and began training clients 1 on 1 with the guidance of former professional boxer, Paul Rubio. I fell in love with educating people in how to live longer and better. I fell in love with helping people fall in love with themselves.
I have worked with all types of students. Some clients are moms who wish to get back into their pre-pregnancy clothes, even after years. I've helped people who start out 400+ pounds get under 350 and go on to lose on their own. Some clients work in the tech industry with sedentary jobs and understand the need for and benefits of exercise. I've helped busy CEOs and busy stay at home parents! I've also helped people who are looking for reduced aches and pains and more energy and new parents trying to get their routine back.
I helped a client go from a size 12 to a size 4 in 6 months. I helped a client who began at 420 pounds get down to 340 and he continues now to lose weight on his own.
Only hire a personal trainer who has both a certification (NASM, ACE, ACSM) AND a 4 year degree. A personal trainer must understand how to read a scientific study and interpret it's results to stay current. They must also understand physics, biomechanics, and physiology in order to design workouts that keep the client safe! Did you know crunches can cause a herniated disc? Did you know that clients with high blood pressure should not do isometric (holding like a plank) exercises? Education is key!!
Most people have goals in mind, but why? Why those fitness goals? What would it mean to you to if you could meet those goals? Why is that important to you? What do you believe your hurdles are in meeting those goals currently?
