Online Program FAQ

Q: How are online training programs delivered?

Online training programs are delivered via the TRAINERIZE app. You will be assigned a free user account. Here’s a quick video of what the app looks like in use.

 

Q: What if I don’t know how to perform an exercise?

I supply instructional videos for all exercises prescribed in my online programs.

Here are a few examples,

Q: How do we communicate?

All verbal communication is done by Zoom.

Q: How long are your programs?

All programs have a minimum 12 week commitment. This is the minimum amount of time for me to get you started on a new lifestyle/performance plan.

With regards to nutrition, I need time to break old habits while systematically implementing new habits to ensure long-term success.

I also write workout routines in four to six week blocks as any less time and we are at risk of not giving a routine it’s required time to take effect while any longer and we may start to create muscle imbalances.

Once your 12-week commitment is complete you have the option to continue on a month-to-month basis.

Q: What if I don’t have certain equipment?

I create your programs based on what you have access to. I may suggest purchasing inexpensive equipment that offer a variety of exercises.

Such equipment suggestions may include:

  • Suspension trainer
  • A set of dumbbells (more as you get freakishly strong)
  • A bench
  • A stability ball
  • Strength bands and mini bands

Q: What is your refund policy?

With regards to In-person services a refund will be issued for any unused sessions.

For online coaching programs, once you have submitted the required intake forms from the intro package there are no refunds unless I come across a circumstance in which I am unequipped to handle.

The Hip and Spine & Shoulder Mobility products have a 7-day money back guarantee.

Q: When does my Online Coaching Program start?

The coaching programs start when you have full access to your program.  Once I receive the completed information package and assessment results it usually takes me a few business days to create your program.

Q: Are you able to work with vegetarians, or those who prefer a paleo/keto/petroleum approach?

Petroleum?

Yes, I am well educated in all aspects of nutrition.  However, I choose to implement a more holistic approach to nutrition and create programs specific to my clients needs.  I don’t buy into food tribes such as vegan, paleo, low carb, high fat etc, but rather create programs for the individual based on the individual for optimal health.

Q: Are you a Dietitian?

No, I am not a dietitian. I’m a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN).

Dietitian
A registered dietitian (RD) completes a four-year degree program plus internship and then usually specializes in a specific area such as pediatric nutrition. A dietitian can ‘diagnose,’ ‘treat’ medical conditions, and ‘prescribe’ supplements .  All of which I, as a nutritionist, I can’t do – rightfully so.

Holistic Nutritionist
I can’t speak for all nutrition programs (non RD programs) but the education I received was a year long full time program. My job is to educate clients what healthy nutrition is and to help create the necessary habits for long term health. I support health and performance while creating a foundation, which in a healthy world, would be all the majority of people would ever need.

The common misconception towards a dietitian is that they only focus on calories in and calories out.  While holistic nutritionists are often labelled as supplement pushers and detox wizards.  Both judgments couldn’t be further from the truth when referring to the top professionals in each practice.

This was a long answer but a very important topic for you to understand. Be very aware the next time you come across a blog or social media post touting a certain diet or nutritional practice to rid the world of it’s diabesity problem. Any legitimate nutritional professional will refrain from sharing such nonsense.

If interested in reading a more detailed description THIS is a great resource.

Q: Do you provide menu plans?

No, I do not. I don’t like meal plans as their adherence rates are poor and I am not legally able to provide them. Meal plans are only legally prescribed by a dietitian. See above for a detailed description of what the role is of a holistic nutritionist is compared to that of a dietitian.

I prefer to use the foods you already enjoy and build a custom nutrition program around them.

Q: Will you help in choosing which supplements are right for me?

I can help in recommending supplements but it is absolutely necessary to get approval from your doctor before taking any supplement.

I am a firm believer of consuming as many nutrients as possible from proper nutritional practices.  However, with people who have been following a standard American diet (SAD) for most of their lives they may be nutrient deficient in many areas.

Deficiencies can also be present throughout certain seasons of the year, during periods of increased stress, extreme training or by following a certain diet philosophy.

Supplements may be recommended in all of these instances but again they are only to be taken after approval from your doctor.
