About this pro

You & Me Fitness is a place of inspiration and empowerment for women to finally say "yes" to loving themselves! We accomplish this through love-based coaching and working from the inside out. The magic of our programs happens at our women-only holistic training center!

We specialize in helping women just like you, regain their self-confidence; increase their energy levels; and simply feel amazing!

We love the work we do, because we've been in your shoes before. We know what it's like to dislike what you see in the mirror. We understand the hurt you feel when your favorite clothes no longer fit. And we know that you're longing for something deeper than simply "getting your smokin' hot bikini bod in 6 weeks!". 

Our experiences help shape yours when you choose to work with us. We take that personally; we won't let you down.

FAQs


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

We take our new clients through a month-long indoctrination into the You & Me Fitness community. This happens via e-mails, face-to-face conversations, our private Facebook group, etc. Our aim is to create a space "where everybody knows your name." (Bonus points if you know where that comes from!)


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

Our coaches are all nationally-certfied Personal Trainers, and usually have college-level education to support their expertise. Additionally, we have coaches that have taken their education a step-further to receive in-depth nutrition coaching certifications from industry leaders like Precision Nutrition and the C.H.E.K Institute.

Formal education is great, but life experience is where it all comes together. Guess what? We have that, too. Each one of our coaches has a story to tell, which will round out your experience with us.


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

We offer a variety of pricing options, which all depend on your budget, availability and level of commitment. We are happy to discuss this with you on the phone or in-person.


What types of students have you worked with?

We typically work with women over 45, who have spent their adult lives taking care of everyone else except themselves. They've reached a point where they begin seeing the women in their lives dealing with health issues they want to avoid (not turning into your mother becomes a very real issue when you get older - ha!). Our best clients are the ones who are in the right mindset that nothing happens overnight, and are willing to show up and follow the dang instructions! :)


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We believe in supporting our community in as many ways possible. Recently, we raised over $2200 for a local gal who became paralyzed after a gymnastics accident. Even though we don't have big name yet, we were still able to leverage our community to come together for this family. Feeling the warm fuzzies yet? ;)


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

There are few things you should when looking to hire a personal trainer:

1. Are they educated? At the very least, they should hold a certification from well-known certifying body (ACSM, NASM, and ACE are some of the most popular). If they have supporting education, even better.

2. Do they understand and relate to your story? Too often (especially at big-box gyms), clients are just assigned trainers without ever meeting them, and the relationship is hindered because no rapport has been established. Regardless, you want to work with someone who has an understanding of your frustrations and goals.

3. Do they listen to your needs? The other thing I see a lot is trainers putting their clients through cookie-cutter workouts, without considering the individual. That's not to say you can't use the same workout as a blueprint, but any trainer worth their salt can (and should!) personalize the workout to fit the client - not the other way around.


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

"Do I even know what I need?" - And sometimes you don't/won't; that's ok. It's our job to listen and help you identify your needs, so we can make a plan to meet them.

"Do I feel at ease in this space?" - When you walk into a new place, and are potentially going to give them your hard-earned money, you want to feel like you belong. If you don't, trust your gut and find someplace that clicks for you.

"Do their values align with mine?" - Just like any relationship, it feels good when your values match up with someone else's. But more importantly, the follow-up question should be, "Do they act in accordance with their values?"
