Personal Training

One-on-one Sessions

All one-on-one sessions are individualized and based upon your personal goals. My philosophy is to meet you where are, and to discuss realistic goal-setting for developing a positive and consistent relationship to exercise and movement. Each session is 60 minutes in duration where I will guide you through a warm-up, a skills and strength section, and a shorter, but effective, conditioning section. I will always assign homework that might include some of the movements you learned in the session, a specific stretch, or a personal wellness challenge (ie. sleep 8 hours a night for on week, drink a certain number of ounces of water per day, etc).

Buddy Sessions

A buddy session is also a 60 minute session that is planned according to your goals, but this time for you and a friend or partner! Many studies have shown that people are more likely to stick with an exercise routine if they have a buddy to do it with. You can provide each other with mutual support, encouragement, accountability, and having a buddy can make the sessions more lively and fun! You and your buddy do not have to be the same size, nor do you have to be at the same level of strength or experience to train together.  However, I do ask that you have the same general goals (eg: “I want to learn how to lift weights,” “I want to run a marathon,” “I want to help strengthen my heart and lungs,” etc.) to make the best use of your time.

Distance Coaching and Self-Guided Programming

Distance coaching is a great option for people who are experienced with lifting weights (barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, bodyweight, resistance bands, etc) and structured exercise and are looking for more variety and structure in their workouts. Additionally, this option is great if you have a competitive goal (weightlifting meet, ragnar course, boxing/martial arts match, etc.) and need help breaking through a plateau. In order to get the most out of this kind of program, however, you must be self-motivated, have access to a gym or weightlifting equipment, and have an understanding that you only get out of this what you are able to put into it. You will be required to commit to 6 months of programming (to be paid once per month), to send me videos of certain movements/lifts for feedback, as well as sign up for regular weekly check-ins.
