Forget about The Biggest Loser-style mega workouts, intimidating bootcamp drill sergeants and being too wobbly to walk the next day.
Instead, let's go for a challenging workout with a friendly-but-firm trainer who teaches top-notch technique and pushes you to give your all. Throw in a few laughs, lots of exercise variety, a simple tracking system that keeps you moving toward your goals...
...and that gives you me!
Sound interesting? I'd love to show you how an exercise program customized to your abilities, busy schedule and unique personality can boost your fitness level and change your life.
My formula for success
- Start with clear, simple and measurable goals.
- Practice an enjoyable exercise program that’s challenging without being overwhelming.
- Modify the program gradually. Too many changes create confusion while too few risk boredom.
- Document everything. It’s easy to forget your starting point and motivating to re-live the journey.
- Be sure the workout is both productive and fun!
How we’ll get started
Typically, I coach clients in their homes or condo exercise rooms once or several times a week, or sometimes as little as once a month. They do the workout independently one to three additional times per week.
But before this...
New clients complete my client information form (that tells me about their health, fitness history and goals) and a PAR-Q (physical activity readiness questionnaire) that tells me whether they should have a medical check-up before we start.
We discuss goals, and I do some physical assessments to confirm which areas need attention.
The program design
I believe the following components should be included in most exercise programs:
- Overall strength: Strength improves your posture, creates an attractive physique and helps you avoid injuries.
- Core strength: A strong mid-section helps decrease back pain, improves sports performance and creates a trim torso.
- Flexibility: Flexible muscles help prevent injuries and improve your posture.
- Cardiovascular endurance: Activities like running, power walking, urban poling and cycling burn calories, strengthen your cardio-respiratory system and boost your energy.
- Balance and coordination: Good balance and coordination help you throughout your day. For example, they help you catch yourself if you slip on ice or trip going up stairs.
- 60 minutes (one person) = $75 (plus HST)
- 60 minutes (two people) = $125 (plus HST)
- 60 minutes (two+ people) = to be negotiated
I look forward to speaking with you!
