NEED TO KNOW
How are you different from a regular gym trainer?
I have the same qualifications as a gym trainer; ISSA Personal Trainer Certification. However, I also have Precision Nutrition Certification, which many trainers do not have. My knowledge base comes from my educational background as well as my own experience in how difficult it can be to be consistent, especially with day to day constraints. Gym trainers work solely in and out of a gym. You see them at the gym, schedule a time to meet with them once or twice a month, and you only have access to the trainer while at the gym. I am different. You have 24/7 access to me (within specific perimeters). You can reach out at any time and ask questions. The workouts we develop can be done at home or at the gym. My guidance is specific to your individual needs and is based on what you currently are able and willing to do/commit to.
Do you charge extra for nutritional guidance?
I have multiple plans for specific individual needs. Nutritional guidance is my specialty. I believe that without proper nutrition and a significant change in mindset, physical results will only be short term and temporary. I practice within my scope of practice and will provide you with specific recommendations that are specific to your needs. If needed, I will work with your general practitioner or refer out if your needs are more than I can offer.
What types of home fitness equipment do you recommend?
This really depends on what you are ready, willing and able to commit to. I do recommend having at least one set of dumbbells, foam roller and a yoga mat. Many of the workouts can be done without equipment. However, a yoga mat and foam roller are essential home gym equipment and imperative to self-care.
