Small group training is also known as semi private training and consists of you and 1-3 other participants with similar fitness goals. As with personal training I will keep your needs and goals in mind, providing you with a safe and effective workout each session. Small group training means the additional support of others, the opportunity to socialize and have fun, as well as the tendency to work harder than you would on your own.

Your Path to Success

Choose or Form a Group (groups range from 2-4 people to ensure enough personal attention)

  • You can join one of the Stronger After Pregnancy or Active Pregnancy training groups described below OR
  • You can form your own group and training focus (including outdoor sessions!) and contact me to discuss scheduling and goals. Group members do not need to be at the same fitness level, but its more effective when members have similar fitness goals.

Initial Session (Optional, but strongly encouraged)

Schedule your Screening and Consultation: To ensure your succeed, I gather information and understanding about your needs and goals through a Screening and Consultation. This initial session will consist of a pre participation health risk assessment, review of your personal exercise/lifestyle questionnaire, a movement screening, and pregnancy/postpartum screenings when appropriate. Learn more about the Screening and Consultation here.

Training Sessions

60-minute session: Each session will consist of a 50-minute full body workout. The workout will take into account your fitness goals, and functional movement weaknesses and/or postpartum core concerns as identified in your screening. Ten minutes will be used to discuss your progress, challenges, new strategies, successes, opportunities and resources.

Additional Support

You will receive occasional communication, education and exercise guidance outside of training sessions to support your efforts.
