About Me, Locations, Fees, and More

Training with Steven
Your fitness is my goal. Everything I do is to improve your health, strength, and ability to physically excel. This sounds obvious, but too many personal trainers don't provide adequate challenge for you to improve, give unsafe or outmoded exercises, and spend your time(and money) chatting and doing anything but guiding your exercise. I incorporate the latest, most effective, and safest exercises specifically chosen for you. My workouts are not easy, but are always appropriate for your current fitness level and goals.

Don't like the commercialism of a corporate gym? As an independent trainer, I am more personal and can be more flexible in scheduling, location and program design.

The program is adjusted to fit your goals, and see the page About Functional Strength Training for an idea of my general approach.

(That's Mitchell Park! I don't really get mail there, and note that Google Maps incorrectly puts me in the church next door.)





Personal Training in Local Parks
Training at Mitchell Park
Enjoy and be motivated by having your training outdoors. Creative use of park features and lots of room to move make your workout fun and challenging. You can even bring your dog. Equipment provided includes kettle bells, suspension gear(like TRX), weighted clubs(like clubbells), medicine balls, and resistance bands. Fresh air, sunshine, and sweat- that's health!

Personal Training at Home
Enjoy the convenience and time savings of in-home training. I bring the equipment to you, or utilize what you own. Regular workouts are critical to making progress in your fitness program, and nothing makes this easier than training at home.

Small Group aka Boot Camp
I offer small group training, with more strength and less cardio than a typical boot camp.

Pricing
A single 60 minute session costs $95.00, and ten sessions purchased in advance is $855.00(the price of nine singles). Outside of the local Palo Alto area or for special circumstances there may be an additional charge.




Movement Screening
The Functional Movement Screen(FMS) is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. FMS identifies functional limitations and asymmetries that could lead to injury or hinder performance. If needed, corrective exercise and manual therapy are included in your program to improve your movement quality, and FMS is used to track progress.

High Intensity Interval Training
HIIT alternates brief intervals of exercise and rest to maximize the cardio benefit and at the same time get strength and mobility training. Typically there is a sprint / rest / resistance exercise / rest circuit. Also see EPOC- Extra Calories Burned After Exercise for more about HIIT.
