“Practice and all is coming.”
Let’s face it. Getting into a routine can be difficult. Do you find that you are overwhelmed by the options you have for staying fit and healthy? Does it seem like everyone has an opinion on the best way to eat, the best way to train, and how frequently wellness should appear in your life? You wouldn’t be the first one! I’ve been teaching yoga as a full time job for the last nine years and personal training for the last seven. I am painfully aware of how many options you have to get into a routine with physical activity and good diet. Particularly for beginners, or those in need of a return to wellness, it is easy to get lost in a sea of information. As a trainer and yoga instructor my mission is to make your relationship to wellness more relaxed, more effective, and more tailored to what you feel like you need rather than what someone else is insisting you should do.
Let me help you simplify. Let's rebuild your relationship with your body, what you eat, and what you do with your time to work out. We’ll work together to address the following:
-an examination of your diet, what’s working, what’s not, and how to put in place gradual change
-creation of a series of workouts that will address your strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular health
-a close, honest look at your schedule to see where fitness fits reasonably into your life
From this beginning point we can begin to develop a routine, reasonable goals and expectations as well as easy-to-grasp techniques for creating change. Your work with me will not be cookie cutter programming. It will be tailored to your needs based on what we discover in our first several sessions. I will offer you guidance while you tell me what you're most interested in doing, one step at a time. You deserve a stress-free way to thrive. Ready? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All sessions are 60 minutes in length and will be held at either Capital Fitness (more information below) or Kaila's home studio on the West Side of Madison. If you have a proper training space in your home we can also discuss meeting there.
Included in the session price are notes on any routines we establish. This includes but is not limited to: workout notes, workout schedule/calendars, diet notes, resources like shopping lists/recipes/example diet days, and summaries of all of our sessions together. I will supply you with helpful materials and if necessary demonstrations on cooking and food prep. Any information you receive from me will be yours to keep even if we do not train in the future. Your written information will be available to you via Google Docs and other online resources where necessary. If you are new to these options, I will teach you how to use them in our sessions.
Included in the session price is support and accountability via email between your sessions for questions, concerns, and general feedback. I will always answer your emails within one business day.
Your programming will be adapted based on your feelings and progress as we go. No more committing approaches that do not work for you. Sessions are designed to give all levels a safe and supportive program. If you have experience, we will work from where you already are and refine what you have going. If you are beginner, we will start from the ground up. All levels welcome!

All sessions must be paid in full in advance and will be held at Capital Fitness or Kaila's private studio on the west side of Madison. Alternate arrangements can be made if necessary. For example, if you have a proper space at home, we can discuss working there. I accept cash, check, and Venmo transactions.
There are no returns or refunds on private studio or Capital Fitness packages. Transfers to another individual may be allowed for major medical emergencies/limitations that arise which will require documentation from your medical facility/physician.
You must meet with me a minimum of once weekly to ensure your cumulative success. We can work around your schedule in a "spot schedule" fashion or secure a recurring time for the length of your package. You will have one week per session plus two weeks to execute your package (IE 7 weeks for 5 sessions, 12 weeks for 10 sessions). I will happily accommodate more time if you are going on vacation or have a major life event to schedule around. After your allotment of weeks the package will expire. This is to keep you focused and successful.
Any session cancellation requires a 24 hour notice to Kaila via phone or email. Any cancellation within 24 hours will be charged. You will enjoy one "freebie" for illness/emergency/change of plans. Any further cancellations within your package will be charged regardless of reasoning.
