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

A student needs to understand that the most import word in the phrase "PERSONAL TRAINER" is the word "PERSONAL".  Beyond fitness coaching and nutritional advice, you want someone who connects with from the heart and not just from the head.  Someone who understands that while you as client may or may not love working out nevertheless your trainer is someone you want to love having at your side on your journey to achieving your goals.


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

Am I READY to invest time, effort and money to improve my health and wellbeing?

What is the BENEFIT to me if I were to invest time, effort and money to improve my health and wellbeing?

What is the COST am I paying for NOT investing my time, effort and money to improve my health and wellbeing?
