StrongHouse Coaching - Frequently asked questions

Do I really need an assessment first?

Yup! In order to get you where you want to be, I need to know where you’re starting, and that means doing a full in-person assessment. This covers assessments of static and moving posture, core and back function, breathing, muscle imbalances, basic movement patterns, and more.


The assessment gives me a comprehensive picture or where you’re starting so I can build you a plan to suit your specific needs, and it gives you a picture of how far you’ve progressed after doing a few months of training.


If you’re not assessing, you’re just guessing, and when it comes to your health, guessing doesn’t cut it.

Why do you charge a monthly rate instead of a per session rate?

A monthly membership allows for flexibility on both sides. It gives you a guaranteed minimum number of sessions per month, which helps to keep you consistent, and it allows you to budget more easily, since you’re paying the same amount each month.

What if I've committed to a plan, but I need to pause my training?

We can do that, 100%. Sometimes you can’t do everything you’ve committed to doing. I get it. I’ve had clients pause their training numerous times for various reasons, and while it’s not ideal for achieving health goals, sometimes it’s inevitable.

What happens if I miss a session?

Sometimes you get stuck in a meeting, or a snow storm, or your kiddo shoved a crayon up their nose and now you’re sitting in the ER. It happens. If you cancel with less than 24hrs notice, I can’t guarantee a make-up session, but I always do my best to make it happen. With more than 24hrs notice, you will get that session rescheduled at a mutually convenient time, no sweat.

Do you offer in-home training?

I don’t, but I’m more than happy to recommend other
quality trainers who do.

Can I do just once a week training?

In my experience, people who work with a trainer twice a week or more progress at least 3 times faster than those who train once a week. That’s not because they’re putting in more work – it’s because they’re putting in the work consistently.

While I’m happy to offer customized options outside of my advertised plans, I usually err on the side of recommending at least a couple of sessions per week in order to encourage consistency and progress.

That said, once a week is better than not at all, so if once a week is what really works best for you, do reach out, and we can figure out the best way to make it work!

Do you do bootcamps or fitness classes?

I can create customized workshops and exercises classes for small groups. I do not offer bootcamp-style training, but I can certainly recommend a number of trainers and studios who host those classes.

Are your services covered by insurance?

Typically, personal training services are not covered, but it’s always best to check with your provider.
