Click Contact to send a brief message with your name, number, and your goals. We’ll message you back within 24 hours to book your first free Start-Up Session.
This free Start-Up Session will serve to help you decide if the personal trainer is a good fit for you, what will be expected from you by the trainer, and help identify some clearly defined goals.
Before connecting, please think about your goals and how much you wish to invest in a personal trainer each week. Depending on your budget, you should decide between Personal Training (60 Mins) or Condensed Coaching (40 Mins).
Will I Learn How To Lift Weights Alone?
Yes. We want you to get the most out of your experience by learning. Our in-person sessions (personal and condensed) are expertly guided to ensure easy understanding and adherence.
It would be a disservice for us not to teach you how to plan your workouts accordingly or lift objects correctly. Our goal is to ensure you’re confident and independent when exercising at your own gym. We want to make sure you know exactly what to do — crushing every aspect of the workout from warm-up to cardio to lifting weights.
Making an investment in fitness is a big financial decision. But your investment isn’t for the trainer to stand there and dictate what to do or merely count reps for you. Your investment is made towards education: Education in competency of your body in making better long-term decisions. Competency that can transfer to other aspects of life, relationship, & in educating those around you. Please read The Manifesto statement here.
How Many Sessions Per Week?
We recommend lifting weights 2-4 times per week. But you need to understand a few things:
First — In general, frequency is better than volume (Frequency > Volume) for most. This is especially true for beginners who need frequent repetition to become acclimated. Second, your brain is wired to learn efficiently at shorter periods. Exercise research has shown that for beginners, shorter bouts of exercise 40-60 min. with more frequency is more superior than one longer bout of exercise (60-90 minutes) with less frequency.
Training once weekly is never ideal. Training everyday isn’t either (for most, not all). Based on these principles, your personal goals, injury history, and lifestyle, we recommend lifting between 2-4 weight training sessions per week. There are obvious exceptions to certain athletes or individuals, but the 2-4 range is the sweet spot for most.
How Long Are Training Sessions?
Personal Training plans are 60 minutes. Condensed Partnered Coaching are 40-45 minutes.
Exercise duration is dependent on age, goals, gym experience, stress level, and injury history. Generally, most workouts are successfully completed in just under.
Our plans are structured to give you several options for your needs. A standard 60 minute workout for private traininees and a slightly shorter 40-45 minute condensed workout for those seeking a more budget-friendly option with partners. The shotened coaching plans involve less-rest and often slightly higher intensity (if applicable).
Are Workouts Paired With Others?
Personal training plans (60 min) are private one-on-one (10 pack, 20 pack, or 30 pack) sessions. You may add a friend or family member to your sessions for an additional cost. See Plans page for pricing.
Condensed coaching plans (40 min) are in a semi-private partnered structure. A partner will be provided for you, or you may enroll a friend or family member. See Plans page for pricing.
