Why is Online Training Right for You?
Being in the industry collectively for almost 30 years, my wife and I have heard pretty much every excuse that exists.
Yes, even that one that you’re making up in your head right now! The bottom line is that no matter what, something is bound to get in your way. Your training is going to take a backseat to something. There’s going to be times when it isn’t top priorty. That’s reality.
The NUMBER ONE REASON we have for not training is lack of time. We all have the same amount, so how is it that some people always find the time to fit it in? Trust me, we know how it feels to struggle to ‘find the time to fit it in’. We also know how important it is. The bottom line is that all of us need a coach. Even the best trainers hire trainers to help them. It’s just easier to have another set of eyes and an expert to help you take the guess work out of it, even if you know exactly what you’re doing.
Online training is the easiest way to work with us from anywhere in the world. Literally. We have worked with clients as far away as China!
Accountability is the number one reason people hire personal trainers. We will help you stay on track. We will assess your posture and movement to make sure there aren’t any issues keeping you from making progress. You will have access to us to help you achieve the results you want, based on your specific goals. Sound like a good place to start? Then let’s start by taking that first step.
Step 1- Submit Your Online Training Application
Step 2 – Our Consultation
After we’ve reviewed your application, we will schedule a brief consultation via e-mail, Skype or phone to discuss your background, needs and goals, both short term and long term.
During this time, it’s our job to make sure that we’re a good fit for you as a coach. While we work with clients with widely different goals and specific needs, our job is to make sure you that you find the best possible coach, whether it’s us or someone else. Remember,we want what is best for you. That’s why we guarantee results when you work with us.
Step 3 – Getting Started
If we make the decision to work together, the final step will be getting you all set up. This will include:
- Goal setting for the time we work together
- Posture pictures
- Movement videos
- Nutrition profile*
- Agreeing upon a timeline to work together. We will take clients for as little as 3 months at a time, but we really prefer 6-month and annual clients as the results are far superior.
*If we determine that it would benefit you, we can discuss the option of private nutrition coaching as well.
Think of what it would cost you in terms of your body image, your confidence, etc., if you continue to train without seeing results?
Quite simply, investing in online coaching is an investment in yourself.
Once we’re up and running, the last piece is our ongoing communication.
Step 4 – Weekly Check-ins
Once we’re up and running, the final piece of the puzzle is communicating on a weekly basis.
What we’ve found over the years of doing this is that a weekly check-in process works best.
If you check-in more frequently, eventually it becomes burdensome and you’re less likely to stick with the program.
On the flip side, if you check in less often you’re more likely to fall off the wagon, or not get the kind of results you’d expect. Therefore, every week we’ll check in to review form, see how the program is going, and make sure things are on the right track.
Here’s a couple stories from our online training clients…
Before I found Keri, I had a membership to the local gym for over a year. I went twice. I just couldn’t get myself to go. So, I hired Keri to develop a virtual training plan for me, since I live in Maine and she’s in Ohio. She’s a true professional – she sent me all the information I needed to get started. She took down all of my current measurements, asked for my goal and used it to create a customized exercise program that I actually got excited about. It was SO easy! The eating plan was a spreadsheet that had drop down tabs that helped me plan out my day. And her rotating workouts were challenging, but doable – and believe it or not, fun.I’m not a lover of exercise- and before I knew it, I was knocking out Keri’s workouts like a pro. She was always there with help and encouragement and when I plateaued and just couldn’t budge another pound no matter what we tried, she went back to the drawing board and reworked some things. She didn’t give up on me and she got me through the rough spots. I dropped 18 pounds on Keri’s program, without a gym and without buying any additional workout equipment. Any time I had any questions, Keri had answers. I stayed motivated because I had a virtual “safe place” where I had support, encouragement, knowledge and resources when I needed them. I highly recommend her services, she’s amazing!” -Nikki Littlefield Fenderson, Wells, Maine
“Over the last 2 years I have done online training with Keri and I can’t say enough about it, it has been a life changer and saver! I went from working out 2 hours/6 days a week to 30min/3 days a week. Not only am I seeing better results…but I have 10.5 hrs back to my life to enjoy more precious time with my kiddos, yes! We even went overseas to China for part of this time and online training allowed me to stay fit in my apartment. You see, Keri personalizes all training not only to what your capabilities are but also to what you have to utilize at your fingertips. Trust me…one can get a killer workout using only their own body weight if that is all they have to use. Worth the investment…life changing!” -Lisa Gardner, Perrysburg, OH
“This past winter when I was away from the Pure Fitness Studio for a month, I enrolled in the on-line training with Keri. Just as if I was right there in the studio, I was given a set of exercises specifically selected for me by Keri. I was able to go to a local fitness center where I had the free weights, TRX, kettle bells, and stability ball practically all to myself, to do the prescribed exercises. The exercises all had links to You Tube videos so that I would do the exercises correctly, just as if Keri were right there watching me. Personal training is most effective when it’s done in the studio, but when I couldn’t do that, this was an excellent alternative. I did not lose any of the strength that I had built up with Keri.” -Bev Woodard, Brighton, MI
