What to Expect

Client's can expect a thorough initial assessment, nutrition plan if required, and regular feedback and communication in the style and frequency the client prefers. Training philosophy: Get to know the client and the factors they affect their ability to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Use that information along with the client's input to develop a winning plan.
