What are your qualifications?
I am an American Council of Exercise certified Personal Trainer. I also hold an Advanced Personal Fitness Training Certificate from North Seattle Community College. My Health Coaching Certificate is from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Furthermore, I am a lifelong athlete and fitness enthusiast. I participated in college athletics and have been passionate about healthy movement, eating, and lifestyle for over a decade.
What form of payment do you accept?
I accept credit cards, cash, personal check, and PayPal.
What is your cancellation policy?
I have a 24 hour cancellation policy. If cancelling within 24 hours of your session, it will be charged/debited as normal. I am loath to invoke this policy, but I ask that clients respect both my time and their commitment to themselves by attending all scheduled sessions.
What shoud I wear and bring to my session?
I ask that you wear comfortable fitness garb that allows for maximum mobility, paired with comfortable sneakers. Please also bring a water bottle with you.
Do you provide nutritional education and planning?
I do indeed. As part of your training session we will discuss general nutrition. However, for more detailed nutritional and lifestyle counseling, I advise clients to take advantage of my health coaching services. I offer packages that combine both personal training and health coaching.
Are you accessible outside of our training sessions for advice and questions?
I make myself as available to my clients as possible within in the constraints of my family and personal commitments. You are welcome to email me with questions, but I ask that you are concise and include multiple queries in a single email instead of several separate communications. My typical response time is 24-36 hours.
What is a health coach?
A Health Coach is a guide, a mentor, and a partner who supports and empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health and the achievement of their personal wellness goals. Health Coaches assist clients with many areas of their lives including, but not limited to, weight management, digestion, cravings, sleep, energy, relationships, and stress management. A Health Coach does NOT take the place of a medical practitioner. A Coach does NOT diagnose, prescribe or treat conditions. Instead a Health Coach encourages positive changes within client-driven wellness goals, complimenting the roles of health professionals and working harmoniously to develop strategies that enact real, sustainable, lasting lifestyle changes.
