What does personal training cost, or what is the rate?
-Our training programs are designed personally and individually for each client. Each client we have is on a program that is unique to them, based on their needs and objectives.
-Until we have completed your assessment session, we would not know your needs, condition, flexibility, ranges of motion, balance, endurance, special concerns, health conditions/limitations, etc., as well as the frequency, intensity, duration and specialization of training needed, specifically for you. Sessions with Jim and Marian start at $100 for 1/2 hour, $250 for one hour, and are only available in packages, usually for an initial four week duration to begin.. Few, if any clients need one hour sessions. Other costs may also be involved, depending on your individual needs. Our rates are more expensive than most, but our results, references, reviews, client feedback, training, experience and passion make us a wise investment in your fitness. Hiring a trainer or pursuing a training program using cost as the number one criteria is often a recipe for failure. Ask yourself this question. What is a better value, paying more but getting the results you desire, versus paying less and not? If price will determine your decision, and not experience, education, track record, reputation, client reviews, and professionalism, then we are likely not your best option.
-Once we complete the assessment and know what program will help you reach your goals, if both parties agree we are compatible for a training relationship, then we will provide you with a detailed outline of the plan we recommend to help you reach your goals as quickly and safely as possible.
What is different with the Max Results package than with traditional training relationships?
– In most gyms, for example, trainers work on commission. In other words, you pay the gym $X per session, and the trainer in turn gets 20-25% of that amount. So you are receiving a trainer whose rate is 1/5 to 1/4 of the amount you are paying, which means you are likely getting an training experience with a novice or less experienced trainer, and getting less value than you are paying for.
-Before you consider any trainer, check them out on the US REPS national registry, which lists only trainers with credentials from the most credible organizations. Look for this logo.
-Most gyms have a standard training package, X number of sessions at X duration, typically one hour sessions. Many times, that may not be ideal for you and your needs. Our packages are customized to the specific needs of each individual client. If your facility only offers one hour training sessions, but you are only at a current level of fitness to sustain an effective training session of 30 minutes, then you are paying for something you don’t need. Many gyms or studios may try and get you on a more frequent schedule than you actually need, so that you use up your package faster and need to renew, which is more money for them. We train in the shortest sessions and least frequency necessary to accomplish your goals. Our objective is to help you adopt the health habits you need, learn to be self sufficient with your fitness plan and teach you how to maintain the fit lifestyle habits you have installed. Even after you become self sufficient in your fitness program, we’re still here for you with any help you need along the way!
-Our training takes place in our studio, not on an open floor in a crowded gym. Many folks feel self conscious in a public environment, which can keep you from getting the most our of your sessions. You will never waste valuable session time waiting for the equipment you need to free up, either.
-We are certified in nutrition, sports nutrition, lifestyle and weight management. These are vital components in your fitness journey. Having your nutrition properly coordinated with your exercise plan is key to success.
Why do clients get results with Max Results when they didn’t with other trainers?
Many training programs consist of a number of training sessions, in person, each week, but may not offer direction on the other days. Our clients are in touch with us each day, and are held accountable for their nutrition, a their non-session day exercise, and can contact us at any time with questions, challenges or for any needed information. Our program is much more like having a partner in making the positive changes you need as opposed to a traditional training relationship, Our clients tell us that the relationship is as vital a part of their success as the training itself.
Why do I have to pay for an assessment session to apply for training?
For us to perform an assessment, we block out all training times for existing clients, so that your session can take place in a private setting. This means taking away up to six training sessions from existing clients. For us to be able to do this, we need to be sure of your commitment and readiness.
