FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Where are you located?
A: I serve the greater Washington DC Metropolitan area. I often work out of people's homes, their community's exercise facility, public parks, and gyms that allow independent contractors. Training location is determined by availability and the needs of the client. Distance coaching services are also a potential option. Please contact me so we can find the best way for us to work together.
Q: How much do sessions cost?
A: Rates vary depending on several variables. To give you some expectations, one on one training rates have ranged from $125 to $200 per session. Again, please contact me and we'll find the best way for us to work together.
Q: How long are sessions?
A: The initial evaluation ranges from 60 to 90 minutes in length. Subsequent training sessions are typically 60 minutes.
Q: How long will it take to get results?
A: It's tough to say. Everyone's ability and capacity to improve varies and is dependent on multiple factors. What also varies are people's definition of results. Someone who wants to feel and move better can get results after one or two sessions. Someone with significant body composition and general fitness goals can get results in several weeks. For someone with a lofty athletic performance goal, the commitment may require several months. I should be able to give you a rough estimate at the end of your initial evaluation.
Q: How many sessions per week should I meet with you?
A: It depends on your availability, ability, goals, and preferences. The ultimate goal is to get you to adopt consistent behaviors that will allow you to become a stronger determinant of your long term health, fitness, and performance. How soon someone starts to "get it" depends on many variables.
Most people need much initial instruction on how to safely resistance train. According to a substantial amount of data, the minimum amount of resistance training needed to receive benefits are two full body sessions per week. Hence, two days per weeks is a common frequency for those who are beginning to exercise for general health and fitness. An athlete, who has much more demanding goals than a general fitness client, will typically require at least three or four sessions per week.
