Is Nutrition Coaching Included in your rates?

Yes. We do a fair bit of nutrition coaching in-session for free. During the first training session, we provide most clients with a personalized nutrition guide based on their goals, weight, age, gender, and activity level. From there, we will discuss your nutrition and lifestyle habits during the slower portions of your workouts to help you make sustainable lifestyle changes that support your efforts in the gym.

We also offer nutrition-only appointments via phone or video call.  This is an add-on service for active training clients that want more support and guidance with food. Training clients can sign up for a 3-months of nutrition coaching at a time. Our program includes 6 sessions with your coach (every other week) via phone or video call with ongoing education and support. 

Do you provide me with extra workouts to do on my own?

Depending on what I feel is appropriate for you, I may:

  • Give you previous workouts we have done together, but modify them for you to do by yourself using the equipment you have at home.

  • Forward you free content created by other coaches that I respect such as yoga videos, mobility videos, or cardio-circuits on YouTube or Vimeo.

  • Encourage you to commit to and track your cardiovascular activities in a way that works for you. We love free apps like Strava for example, but we have clients that use google spreadsheets, shared notes, or a simple paper notebook and verbal check-ins as accountability tools.

A note for those looking specifically for programming:

We can provide you an incredible program to do on your own - but it takes time to get to know you, understand your preferences and abilities, and then determine exactly what equipment and space you will have access to so we can build you a high quality home program you can do safely on your own.  If you are looking specifically for an individualized program to do on your own, we do that - but we call that a 'program design' rather than personal training. We have to charge a bit more for program design appointments than we charge for our typical training sessions because those appointments and follow ups require 3-4 times more admin time on average.

What are your rates?

We really suggest you book an assessment and talk to us first, because you don't know what you are getting until you get here! That being said, we understand that price may be non-negotiable for some people, so we like to outline our general fees in advance to avoid making people feel uncomfortable.

Our personal training rate is $60/session, but the sessions are discounted based on commitment.

  • Our Most Common Monthly Memberships is $440 per month for 2 sessions each week. ($55)

  • Our Most Common (and most discounted) Package is 60 sessions. ($45)

  • Our Lowest Cost Membership is $240 per month for 1 session per week. ($60)

Do you require a contract? 

  • Yes - but our membership agreement are simple 1-page month-to-month agreements. You have the right to discontinue your training with us any time, we just ask for 30 days notice so we can onboard a new person to fill your time-slot when you go.  

  • We would love to have you as a member at our gym, but you won't be pressured to join or to stay on board if it isn't a good fit. It's not fun for us to train people that don't trust the process and love it here, so if you decide that you would be happier elsewhere then we support that!
