Coaching

Do you want to get leaner, stronger, or more muscular? Are you working hard in the gym, but not seeing the results you want? Do you struggle with your nutrition? Are you overwhelmed with the abundance of fitness information that's out there? Have you tried different diets and training programs, only to eventually lose motivation and give up? If so, I can help.


Why hire me?

The principles that you need to follow to transform your physique are simple, but they are not easy. In fact, the process is downright difficult. Motivation can only take you so far. What you really need is accountability and support as you forge the habits that will get you to your goals--and that's exactly what I provide. I also offer objective feedback and perspective. I'll be in your court, monitor your progress, adjust your plan as needed and help you plan your next steps.

Not only will l help you set up a plan that gets you results but, more importantly, it will fit your life. Because the best diet or exercise plan in the world doesn't mean much if you're not able to stick with it. So I make the process fit you, not the other way around.


What's my coaching like?

I don't do cookie cutter programs or fad diets. Your training program and nutrition plan will be 100% customized to you. 

Most of my clients find success with a progressive strength training program combined with tracking their food intake to ensure they are eating the right number of calories and macronutrients for their goal. For more advanced physique goals, this is my recommended approach.

But if tracking isn't needed for your goal, or simply isn't a good fit for you, I'll work with you on a habit-based approach. With this approach, you'll work on step-by-step behavior changes that will get you to your goal. You'll receive a lesson for each habit, daily accountability, habit tracking, and regular phone calls.


What do I need from you?

To provide the best service possible, I have some requirements regarding the type of client that I take on. Please read the requirements below to determine whether we might be a good fit for one another.

1. You are not looking for a quick fix.

What I have to offer is neither a crash diet nor a quick transformation program. I don't guarantee that you will lose a certain amount of weight within a certain period of time. Rather, I offer sustainable changes at a realistic pace, coupled with continual coaching and support.

2. You are independently motivated.

In order to achieve great results with distance coaching, you'll need to be willing to actively participate in the process, and ready to do the work. This will involve: independently following your training program, working on your eating habits, filling out your tracking sheet(s), and completing a check-in at the interval that we agree upon.

3. You are willing to communicate.

This is a partnership. The more forthcoming you are with me, the more I can help. So I ask that potential clients be willing to: communicate openly and honestly with me (whether it's about happy stuff or about the really hard stuff), check in with me at your designated time, take advantage of regular Skype calls and reach out when you have questions or concerns.

4. You have some experience in the gym.

Since I won't be there with you in-person for your workouts, it's best that you have some prior experience performing compound lifts such as squats, deadlifts, rows and presses. We can improve your technique as we work together, but it's important that you can perform these safely on your own.

5. You're not injured or seriously ill.

While I have some personal experience with training-related injuries, I don't have the qualifications to diagnose or treat injuries. It's also outside of my scope to use exercise or nutritional interventions to treat medical conditions. Accordingly, please consult the appropriate practitioner for treating these issues.

6. You're not looking for a licensed practitioner.

I am a personal trainer and fitness coach. I am not a medical doctor, licensed dietitian, licensed nutritionist, or any other licensed health professional. As a result, I am not qualified to diagnose, prescribe meal plans, or treat eating disorders. Should you need assistance with any of these, please consult the appropriate medical professional.


How much does it cost?

I offer three main categories of coaching: one-time consultations, part-time coaching and full-time coaching. Consultations are great if you just want to talk to me once to figure out a plan and get yourself off to a good start. Part-time coaching is great if you'd like to keep in touch periodically, but you aren't looking for too much of a hands-on experience. Full-time coaching is great if you thrive with a lot of support and accountability, and you'd like to keep in touch frequently. Please see below for more details.
