Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
The first session is used as an evaluation session. I walk the client through some basic fundamental exercises to see what their strengths and weaknesses are. From there I like to find out their goals and begin formulating a plan to help them achieve these goals of theirs.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
After graduating from UTSA with a B.S. in Exercise Science, I shadowed a professional sports performance trainer for three years. I am certified in Exercise Nutrition through IFPA. I also hold specialized certifications:Foundations, Kettlebell, Steel Clus, and Animal Flow from the ONNIT Academy.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Yes, for one on one session it's $50.00
For a group consisting of two or more its $40.00 per person
How did you get started teaching?
Before playing both football and baseball at the collegiate level, I trained in preparation for these sports. It was during the training process that I realized I had a real niche for this whole strength and conditioning field. From the very first session with my very first official client I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with students at every level, from elementary, all the way up to the professional level. Therefore, I have a vast knowlegde and experince for any and every level, age, sport, etc.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
Just last year my first group of high school athletes graduated and went on to play at the collegiate level. This was a very special time for me beacuse I had trained them all since they were just freshmen in high shcool, so I was able to see them grow and develop on off the field/court.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
1st: Make sure they have an open mind when it comes to training. There is no one size fits all plan here. Every athlete who walks through our doors is going to be completely different from the next. Every single athelte has differnet goals, strengths, and weaknesses they will need to work on. Therefore, look for an individual willing to be flexible with their training program.
2nd: You get what you pay for. Don't focus on finding the cheapest trainer out there, focus on finding someone who is truly passionate about what they do and you'll be in good hands.
