About this pro

We are an actual company with many trainers on staff not just one trainer.  We make sure that you are matched up with the perfect trainer for your needs, goals and personality.  We also know what to look for in hiring a trainer... do you?

We love that fact that we get to wake up each day and help others accomplish their goals.  We help clients get off medications, lose weight, get in shape, feel great and feel great about themselves.  There is no better job!

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

The first thing we do with a new client is a full intake questionnaire and assessment.  The questionnaire lets the trainer know about motivations, challenges, injuries (past and current), medical conditions,struggles and challenges, medications and more.  The assessment allows us to collect quantifiable (measurable) data that we then use as a benchmark for progress, weight loss, balance, flexibility and any other goal that we are working on.  We thrive on getting our clients results!

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

All of our trainers possess at least one major nationally recognized personal training certification.  Many have multiple certification and we even have trainers with Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Exercise Physiology, Kinesiology or Sports Medicine.  We also only hire experienced trainers.  Most of our trainers have spent years working in "big box" commercial gyms, physical therapy clinics or other environments that yield a lot of real world experience with multiple client types.  We also nationally registered dietitians.

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

Our pricing is set on a per session basis for half hour or hour sessions.  We typically have clients invest in a month worth of sessions at a time although there is nothing written in stone and we will make any arrangements needed to make this work for the client and the company.  Ask us about our starter package!

How did you get started teaching?

We had become middle aged and de-conditioned and went about losing the weight and getting in shape the hard way.  Once we really started studying the industry we discovered a huge need for a company to provide trainers to people's homes.  Gyms are fine if you are willing to go but most Americans don't like the experience.

What types of students have you worked with?

Doctor's Choice Fitness and Send A Trainer has developed a reputation for helping clients lose weight and gain strength, flexibility, endurance, balance and confidence while exercising in the privacy of their own home, at a local park or at the beach.  We work with couples, seniors, kids and teens, folks in midlife, and even women that are Pre/Post Natal.

80% of American's don't enjoy going to the gym so trying to lose weight there has doomed them to fail. This system works because our highly skilled Certified Personal Trainers come to you. 

We  make it fun, enjoyable, and educational while still giving our clients the best and most scientifically supported workouts and counseling possible.

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

This is a service business that is as much an art form as a science.  Much like hiring a doctor or surgeon, you hire the best you can afford. You wouldn't hire the cheapest doctor or plastic surgeon. This is the only body you get.  Make sure that you hire an experienced trainer with multiple years of experience and has worked with hundreds of clients.  We strive to only hire top shelf trainers that will yield our clients that results that they are looking for.

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

Think about your "why."  Why are you motivated to take on this fitness or weight loss journey.  There will be times when you will need to come full circle and really concentrate on why you started...
