ELM's Personal Trainers are experienced, professional and ready to help you reach your health and fitness goals.  Our Personal Training services combine the art of Coaching with the science of Kinesiology to provide our clients with the tools they need to get results over the long term.  Personal Training sessions are tailored for each client and may be focused on sport specific or functional training, injury rehabilitation, nutrition planning, mental training, weight management coaching and more.  If you have health and fitness goals, we are here to help you reach them!

All new ELM Personal Training clients begin with a Kinesiology Assessment and a minimum of two Training Sessions.  After that, it is up to you and Coach Sarah as to how frequently you will meet for your progression sessions.  Weekly, monthly or seasonal progression sessions are available based on your needs.  All Personal Training packages include an Initial Kinesiology Assessment, customized program development, Corrective Exercise prescription, training materials/manuals and Coaching support to help you reach your goals and get the results you are ready to work for.  

Personal training packages are available for any budget including 3 session 'Start Up', Long Term or Partner Training packages.  Training sessions may take place in the location of your choice: in-home, outdoors or at an accomodating facility. We come to YOU! 

I love the feeling of a strong body, because it sets the base for everything else. It really does! No matter your age or shoe size, if you are a long distance runner or approaching 21k. Injury free, self confidence, self love, capable, move forward, beautiful inside - the reasons are endless. Feeling wins over the looks - and you look fab! This is what I am doing together with Coach Sarah Seads.

What you can look forward to!  Each session is tailored specifically to your needs and goals but may include health coaching, weekly goal setting, education, mental training and nutrition recommendations in addition to your physical training.  Each training session will include a specific warm up, strength, flexibility and conditioning exercises that are personalized specifically for you. Your session fee also includes program development time and all supporting resource materials so that you can dig deeper, stay on track and ensure that you are taking the right steps to reach your goals.  Materials will be sent via email following your session as needed.  Please wear comfortable clothes that you can move in for active sessions along with water and any emergency medication that you may need.

Initial Assessment: During your initial session we will review your health history, set goals, and complete a physical and functional assessment.  You will leave with an action plan and a few key exercises to get you started.  After your Initial Assessment, Sarah will create your Personalized Training Plan including your Corrective Exercise prescription to address imbalances, correct poor posture and improve sub-optimal movement patterns.  You will receive a copy of your Training Plan at your first training session as well as via email along with supporting materials and in-depth training manuals.  You will receive an online account where you can view your exercises in photo, video and text formats on a computer or mobile device using the Physiotech app.

Training Sessions: During your two start up Training Sessions (or more if needed) you will review your new Personalized Training Plan and begin working through your prescribed exercises.  All Personalized Training programs begin with 'foundation' Corrective Exercises that will correct imbalances and ensure you have a solid base of support to build upon.  Once you have a solid base, Coach Sarah will progress you to functional training, heavier loads and more advanced exercise progressions that will help you reach your health and fitness goals effectively and efficiently.

5.  Follow up sessions.  After your first two Training Sessions the frequency of your training is up to you.  You may choose to meet on a bi-weekly or monthly basis for continued supervision and progressions.  Or, you may prefer to work independantly and check in on a bi-monthly or seasonal basis to advance and progress your Training Plan as you reach your goals and set new ones! 


Sarah Seads Client Coaching Agreement:

As a Coach, I am 100% committed to supporting my clients in any and all ways that I can and will do my very best to assist you in reaching your personal health goals, with all of the tools I have.  I will invest my knowledge, skills, energy and passion to support you in reaching your goals in the best way I can.  To achieve the best possible outcome for you, I ask for 100% commitment to yourself and the process, in return.  Coaching is a partnership that requires an equal investment of energy from both the Coach and Client.  As a Coach, I will only agree to work with Clients who are as committed to themselves and process as I am.  As a Coach I cannot guarantee results, because it is you, the Client,  that must do the work and take the steps required to reach your personal goals.  The power for change and success is in the relationship, not in me, the Coach.

I only work with Clients who agree to:

1.  Commit 100% to doing the work, both physically and mentally, that is required to achieve the results they seek.  

2.  Invest as much energy in themselves, as I do, to support themselves in realizing their personal goals.

3.  Be responsible for their own results and take the steps required to reach towards their personal goals over the long term.

Thank you for considering signing up to embark on this exciting journey with me and for trusting me to support you in reaching your goals.  I am here to support you, guide you, motivate you and keep you accountable so that we can both see you succeed.  Let’s get started!
