Your questions answered:
Why should I train with you?
I invest much more time and interest into each one of my clients than many traditional trainers that just want to 'get the job done'. I provide a nutrition plan for every single client. All of my plans are individualized, I do not have a 'standard' workout for every client. I realize everyone is different, has different needs, goals and preferences. I love seeing clients achieve their goals and ultimately become happier, healthier, more fulfilled people.
If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
The secret is.... There is no secret! You can only achieve the results you want with hard work and dedication. Although, I would say, one of the most overlooked pieces of a healthy lifestyle is nutrition. Nutrition is something I think everyone struggles with, but you usually cannot lose that last little bit of weight, gain lean muscle, lose fat or even keep your energy up throughout the day without a clean, healthy diet.
Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
Typically I help people lose excess weight, firm and tone. I have also worked with a couple of athletes, helping them prepare for competitions and games in the gym, using specific exercises to advance them in their sport.
What do you like most about your job?
I really love seeing people get excited when their bodies start to change. When I have been working with a client for a couple months I get to see the change and progress, not just in their body but also their confidence and demeanor. I think it's really cool to see someone's hard work pay off and get that satisfaction that they always dreamed of.
