What is 1:1 Coaching?
1:1 Coaching sessions deliver individualized support in a caring environment!
Our coaches work with you to hone in on your goals and areas of interest before developing a structure for your workouts. For those new to the idea of 1:1 Coaching but familiar with “personal training,” here’s a breakdown of what these sessions can include:
- Joint mobility/stability exercises
- Bridging the gap from rehab to activity
- Strength & endurance work
- Olympic lifting
- Sport-specific movements
- Learning/refining good movement patterns
- Core strength & integration into movement (Pilates)
- Movement evaluations (FMS)
We have a Whole Athlete approach to working with our community – health, wellness and performance has many more components than just exercise! 1:1 Coaching with Strive & Uplift can have other areas of focus to address your needs as a Whole Athlete:
- Health/mindset coaching
- Customized programming
- Intuitive eating guidance
- Running technique work
- Self-care/recovery plans
In working with a coach, sometimes you’ll get “homework” to do between sessions. Homework may be a few exercises that your coach would like you to work on in your own time to address a specific need (like injury recovery/rehab or mobility improvement). It is not as structured as a full workout, but rather a few exercises to improve your general movement in between working with your coach.
Custom programming is more involved for the coach to create, and usually looks like a structured workout plan that includes a warm up, sets and reps and a cool down. It includes videos or detailed descriptions of the exercises and how to go through it start to finish.
Our customized programming is in addition to any sessions you do with a coach. You and your coach will discuss the number and frequency of the workouts to find a plan that fits your needs. Here are just a few examples of what custom programming can look like:
- Detailed session recaps with videos of the exercises you did so you can repeat the work you did with your coach on your own later
- A full mobility routine designed for your needs that fits with your other activities
- Monthly workout programming to guide your training
Why Strive & Uplift?
We take a team approach to personal training at Strive & Uplift. Each one of our coaches offers their own unique skill set, and we want to make sure you get the absolute best coaching for your needs! There are so many aspects to health and wellness, and our coaches have a huge variety of expertise in these different areas. We often ask each other’s advice, and if clients are interested in working with multiple experts, we love to collaborate in designing programming and coaching!
We know the value of human interaction, but want to make sure we’re caring for everyone’s physical and emotional safety! We offer virtual and in-person sessions both outside and in training facilities. Due to the pandemic, in-person sessions are subject to change and specific health measures in response to state and local health guidelines, as well as coach and participant comfort.
We offer a wealth of resources to all our members, including those who do 1:1 Coaching! Click here for more information.
Flexible Pricing Structure
The ability to work with a coach one-on-one shouldn’t be reserved for only those who can pay top dollar!
There’s so many reasons why someone would want to work individually with a coach! Past traumatic experiences from gym settings, recovery from an injury, guidance through a difficult pregnancy, the list goes on! It’s important to us that we come together as a community to support quality education and guidance for all.
We use our flexible pricing model to allow people to pay a range of prices – if your situation allows you to pay more, you can do so knowing that your support will go towards subsidizing others who have less means. Together, we can keep our services and expertise accessible!
How it Works
- People with more access to money, family wealth, and overall financial stability pay more for the same services than those who are less financially secure. That way, everyone pays closer to a similar percentage of their expendable income for our services. While the world still runs on money, this is the best way to ensure our coaches can continue providing awesome instruction and support to everyone!
- As you decide whether you should pay more, less, or the same amount as our starting rates, you’ll consider the following:
- Your household income
- Your access to family assets & wealth, or assistance you provide to your family
- Your debt to income ratio
- The relative costs of meeting your basic needs (e.g. do you need to spend more than others on healthcare?)
Value of 1:1 Coaching
1:1 Coaching sessions deliver individualized support! You and your coach(es) invest in each other in a relationship built to serve your needs. Our coaches offer their expertise, collaborate as a team to solve problems, and constantly develop our practice as movement professionals. It’s an intimate and highly rewarding way to develop new skills, get support and accountability, strive for your individual goals, and know that you’re working with an expert who’s focused on you!
Similarly, workout programming, including detailed session recaps, is designed specifically for your needs by a coach who understands your history and goals. These workouts include exercise videos from our collaboratively built library with cues specific to the exercise and lots of options for different bodies. The workouts are yours to keep, so they have ongoing value if you want to revisit them!
Determining what to Pay
You can use this chart to help decide what the right price is for you. Everyone’s financial situation is informed by the interactions between income, wealth, debt, and varying costs of basic living expenses. Consider where you fall in each of the categories presented to determine your overall financial position.
This chart is offered solely as a guide to help you decide the rate that’s best for you. It’s impossible to capture everything, which means you may have specific circumstances that aren’t reflected here. Ultimately, the choice is yours — we’re trying to lower barriers, not put more in your way!
With your coach, you can decide whether to pay each time you have a session, or if you want to buy multiple sessions up front. You may want to buy multiple in order to commit to a training plan or feel that sense of investment in yourself!
Sessions are typically 55 minutes long, but that’s subject to change according to COVID guidelines for in-person sessions. The price points listed below are before sales tax is added, which is currently 10.25%.
If your coach is traveling to you, whether that’s to your home or a park near you, we may charge up to $15/hour and 56 cents a mile to compensate for travel time and expense. All of this will be discussed with your coach ahead of time as you figure out a setup that works for both of you!
