FAQs


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

1. Priot to their consultation, all new clients will complete a health intake form.

2. Consultation will include the following tests prior to entering into a training program: Body Mass Index, Stability, Flexibility, Physical Strength, Musculoskeletal Screening and Cardiovascular Endurance.

3. The client and specialist will dialog on any goals and/or concerns.

4. The specialist will prescribe an exericse regime. 


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

Most personal trainers are required to complete a total of 10 hours of study every 2 years to maintain their status as a certified fitness professional. Personally we don’t believe that 10 hours is enough to keep up with the health/personal fitness industry. Our trainers receive a minimum of 10 hours per year of continuing education credits that keeps them well versed in current nutrition guidelines, exercise plans, and contraindicated exercises, as well as any revised industry standards. We love connecting and learning from others in the health and personal fitness industry!


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

Our initial consultation fee is $100-$125, small group training is $20-$40, and each one-on-one training session ranges from $75-$100.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.
Every person is unique and as such, has different health and fitness goals. What I love about being a personal trainer is to be able to discern my client's unspoken needs as well as the ones they vocalize. For example, I had a client who had complained of lower back pain. After a few simple tests we discovered the client had major tightness in his hamstrings. Even though he wanted to loose weight, he first needed to incorporate flexibility exercises to decrease the tension before we could focus on his other fitness goals. I will not in good conscience ignore flexibility problems that could compromise your overall fitness problems.

 


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

1. Make sure your trainer has an ACTIVE and Accredited license. There are just too many trainers out here that train people with out having the proper credentials. Ask your trainer about their certification program, how many hours they need to maintain their certification, and their specialization.

2. Ask if they have a current AED/CPR Unfortunately there are some risks when engaging in a fitness activity. You want to make sure that your trainer is appropriately trained to respond to health emergencies. As a certified trainer, I am required to maintain my CPR/AED license.

3. Cheaper is not always better This market is completely saturated with personal trainers in the DC area. You may be able to find a trainer who charges $35 per hour but I guarantee you that one of the scenarios below may apply a: S/he may not be certified and licensed b: Can not afford to reinvest into the business to provide you the most relevant and effective fitness program c: Has a weak client base or has little to no experience d: Is not able to provide a competitive service


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

How much time can I devote per week? Most results are seen when clients come for at least twice a week for a minumum of 1 month.
