Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you train?
We train in two state-of-the art facilities - one in St. Louis Park and the other in Eden Prairie. We also have a small, private space above the main gym in Eden Prairie where we offer a more private training experience and train-the- trainer professional development workshops.
For clients who have workout space in their homes/apartments, home training is an option.
And, once you are moving well we may exercise (pun intended!) the option of taking it outside (on a bike, on the tennis or golf course or in the woods. Snowshoeing anyone?!).
What are your fees?
We offer an introductory package to give clients an opportunity to experience the training. The introductory rate is $210 for 3 one-hour training sessions. This includes an assessment to understand your current level of fitness and where to focus training efforts. After the introductory package, you will have a variety of options to choose from based on your budget, goals and time.
What is the typical process for working with a new customer?
It begins with a conversation (no strings attached) to learn about each other. We tell you about our training protocols, the services that are available and talk about pricing. You tell us about your goals and we'll talk about strategies to reach those goals.
With whom do you work?
People with injuries (such as knee or shoulder injuries)
Baby boomers and seniors who want to keep active and independent
Pre- and post-operative clients who train to improve surgical outcomes
Sport-specific trainees who want to improve their games
People with physical limitations (such as rheumatoid arthritis)
My parents don't want to move to assisted living. How can they stay independent?
That is a great question. It is so important for seniors to retain strength and balance. Without strength and balance the risk of falls rises significantly and it is often a fall that leads to a loss of independence.
Our senior training program focuses on:
falls prevention exercises,
building strength and muscle, and
agility and balance.
We use many different training modalities designed for older adults. It is a progressive program that begins with assessing the individual’s current level of fitness (just like with any client) and incorporates a variety of exercises. We collaborate with medical professionals, as needed, to ensure the best interests of the client come first.
What education and/or training do you have?
All of our trainers are certified personal trainers. In addition, our group holds specialty certifications in corrective exercise, Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), strength and conditioning and degrees in exercise science. We regularly offer workshops to other trainers in a variety of topics including VO max testing, senior training and biomechanics for fitness training. Our collective athletic experiences include long distance running, competitive biking, body building, tennis, golf and swimming. Our studies have encompassed both the theoretical and practical applications of exercise science and have focused on injury prevention, rehabilitation, movement assessment and performance training.
How can I reach my ultimate goal?
Having a goal is the first step. Adhering to a program comes next. We find that clients who are receptive to learning and are actively engaged both during the training and on their own have the best results.
