How often do we work together?
Working together can take many forms. Initially I would ask that you commit yourself to coming to 3 sessions at minimum (1 ninety minute evaluation and 2 sixty minute regular appointments) before deciding if our work together is right for you. Frequency of training really depends on several factors, your needs and goals, previous training experience, how long have you had certain physical limitations/pains, compliance with home work and exercise routines, budget and availability. I work with people anywhere from 3x/week to every other week.
I've worked with other trainers before, How are you different?
I approach your sessions and programming from the perspective of how it affects your brain and central nervous system. Very few professionals in this field use a neurological perspective applied to health, fitness, rehab, and performance. Longevity in fitness, health and high performance is rooted in good movement and that's where your program will begin. Moving well is paramount to how much weight you can lift or how long you can last on a treadmill. Those things come second. Additionally I train your sensory skills (vision, vestibular, proprioceptive) and your brain's ability to integrate them together to move, perform, and live the way you are meant to. Visual skills and balance skills (vestibular) are very important elements to your goals, whether they be pain reduction, weight loss, improved sports performance, or general fitness, because of there powerful influence on reflexive muscle tone (aka unconscious stability of your muscular system).
How long do sessions last?
Regular session are 60 minutes. Initial evaluation appointments are 90 minutes.
I've heard people MENTION you do REHABILITATION AND ARE great at PAIN REDUCTION. ARE YOU A PHYSICAL THERAPIST?
No. I am not a physical therapist. I have a variety of neurologically based training techniques to reduce and eliminate the pain's or limitations that are holding you back from your potential. After removing those, your brain and physical training program will focus on teaching you to move your body with greater ease, efficiency, accuracy, agility, strength, and speed.
Do you take insurance?
Do you make house calls?
If your specific situation requires it and we can coordinate our schedules. Travel time is billed at my normal hourly rate.
