How to Choose the Perfect Personal Trainer

A personal trainer is like a personal health leader, guide, partner, and cheerleader, all wrapped in one. A GOOD personal trainer trains you. An AMAZING personal trainer not only trains you. But also helps you understand why you’re doing what you’re doing and how it translates into better functionality in the real world. And then of course a personal trainer is aware of the body composition changes you want and moves you in that direction – while always training functionality and capabilities.


Start with Looking at Ratings and Reviews.

Look for social proof! If others have had a great experience, chances are you will too. Look for good ratings (4.0 and higher), and look for detailed reviews that give a glimpse into what it is like to work with this person. Check out my success stories here.


Next, Ask Some Questions.


Does this person look the part?

This is a question you are asking yourself. But it’s extremely important. You want a nutritionist to look healthy, you want a mechanic to look dirty with big hands, and you want your trainer to look healthy and fit.


Is this your only job?

You want a personal trainer and health coach that is committed to the lifestyle – it’s all they freakin’ do. That means they are passionate about it. That also means they probably train all the time – training themselves and training clients. If they are part-time, they may be part-time with you! IFY (Information For You) – Health Coaching and Personal Training is ALL I do.


How are you going to train me? What are you going to do to me and for me?

If a trainer goes right into everything he or she is going to do to you, like a sales pitch, move on. The FIRST response from a good trainer and health coach is a question right back at you, getting to know you better. A question such as “What are your goals? What do you want to see change? How do you think a personal trainer can help?”


Is this workout / movement something you actually do?

If your trainer or potential trainer comes back with anything but yes, you may want to dig a little deeper.


You’ve come to the right place!

I’ve been a health coach for over 10 years now. I’ve worked with hundreds of clients, taught thousands of people, and I have an amazing track record.

you’re looking to feel better for the rest of your life!

you’ve tried “all the things” and nothing seems to work. OR you’ve tried things that worked, but they just weren’t sustainable.

what you need is a guide to give you confidence in what you are doing, with something that is sustainable for a lifetime.

frequently asked questions

what’s the difference between the membership and health coaching?

both the membership and health coaching will bring you clarity and confidence with nutrition and health, and will simplify your nutrition and health.

the membership is monthly subscription to an online community.

health coaching is regular 1-on-1 time, just you and me together.

the membership you can think of as being a part of a social network that has courses, recipes, meal plans, and all kinds of other exclusive content that you can take advantage of at your own pace. the best part is – OTHER PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU. you get to interact with these people in all kinds of different ways. having the support of others going through a similar process is critical for long-term success.

health coaching is 1-on-1 attention, with someone there to hold your hand and personally guide you through simplifying your nutrition and health. health coaching is the most POWERFUL way to implement change because the process is driven by YOU and customized to YOUR goals, your challenges, and your life. if you apply for health coaching and  you’re accepted, you get the membership for free for the time that we are working together, and you can continue it afterwards if you’d like.

what is health coaching?

health coaching is 1-on-1 attention, with someone there to hold your hand and personally guide you through simplifying your nutrition and health. health coaching is a dynamic, creative, and exciting process! it is you and me getting together 1-on-1 to learn, implement, and support whatever changes you want. it’s completely driven by you and customized to you. health coaching is NOT me telling you what to do. health coaching IS YOU in the drivers seat, and me helping with navigation using my training, expertise, and wisdom from working with hundreds of other private clients.

we will be meeting once every 2 weeks (again with flexibility depending on what’s going in your life), on the phone or through Zoom.

each meeting will consist of:

  • checkin and reflection on previous days / weeks of work.
  • acknowledgement of what could be just a little better.
  • what we need to do, address, or change to support previous efforts.
  • a review of your values, vision, and goals.
  • education with new information.
  • co-create goals moving forward.
  • co-create accountability.


contact between sessions:

  • you can text or call anytime! I am usually very responsive.
  • I will check in with you on weekends to encourage you to make it a great week,
    and one other day during the week.


other support in between sessions:

  • we will use the membership (online community) for support and resources while working together.



  • I cannot hold you accountable. but I can help you hold yourself accountable. you are not committing to me – you are committing to yourself! and that’s a beautiful powerful thing! that being said, we have plenty of tools to help with accountability.
  • we will come up with goals together, agree to them, and put them in writing. we will also figure out what the best way is to hold yourself accountable for these actions and goals. and we will review your efforts together!


what you can expect from ME :)

my goal is to make you self-reliant when it comes to health. to never question what or how you are supposed to be healthy.

  • education with the correct information, with as much references and resources as you want to back it up.
  • facilitated experience by helping you come up with your own “experiments” to put what we learn into practice.
  • as much support as you need to move you along your path.
  • complete confidentiality – I will not share anything about our work together with anyone unless you give me permission (for example in the form of a testimonial or sharing an experience we have).
  • I will help you identify and fully engage your strengths on the path to a better future.
  • I will ask thought provoking questions and encourage you to arrive at your own answers whenever possible and co-create answers otherwise.
  • I will encourage realistic expectations and goals.
  • I will be direct and firm with constructive reflections when needed.
  • I will support you in brainstorming creative possibilities for moving forward and navigating roadblocks.
  • when appropriate, with permission, and within my scope of practice, I will offer advice, instruction, and resources for improving health, well-being, and performance.
  • I will recognize early whether the chemistry with us is good or not optimal. if not optimal, for any reason, we’ll chat about it and do something about it :)
  • I will acknowledge when you have an issue that is outside my scope of knowledge and skills and recommend other resources.
  • I will send a summary of each coaching session, including vision and plan for you to edit.


what I expect from YOU.

  • this is a relationship. if you are having an issue or need help, I cannot read minds (although I am close ;). reach out. I’m here to help.
  • come to meetings ready to learn! we will probably get you to question what you think you know about health – and that’s a good thing. because if you knew 100% what to do, you’d be doing it.
  • give your full effort with our simple goals! strive for perfection while being easy on yourself. there is no failure, there is only feedback.
  • you are responsible for following through on behavioral changes. I cannot do it to you. but I can do it with you.
  • setbacks are normal on the path of change and necessary in order to establish new mindset and behaviors.
  • I need you to be punctual and responsive. again, this is a relationship ;)

the membership is ideal for everyone which is why it’s included in the 1-on-1 health coaching. it’s cost-effective (less than $1 per day), and it’s the best way to stay up-to-date, and informed on the latest and greatest in health. I do the research and bring it to you in the membership. the membership is especially ideal for you if you like to do self study at your own pace.

why the heck don’t you have any before and after pictures?

if you have body fat to lose, and you put what you learn into practice, you will lose body fat. BUT! I pride myself and the SHT methodology in NOT being like other programs that show superficial aesthetic results to try to bait customers into their program. the goal of working wiht me in any capacity is to simplify your nutrition and your health, to get lasting results, and to make nutrition and health work for a lifetime.
