What to Expect with our Personal Training Starter Pack

Starter Pack by Sand & Steel. Generally, clients begin with a starter pack.  The starter pack includes four private one on one sessions that a client can use for any of our services. With the sessions, you can book personal training, a fitness performance benchmark, nutrition coaching, private yoga, mobility tune-up, and private boxing. Clients begin a complimentary gym tour consultation, followed by a fitness assessment, and continue with our private training.

Consultation.  Clients start their package with a programming consultation. Our owners, Paul Roberts and Dawn Anderson carefully go over your goals, previous injuries, and questions you may have on how to start.  Together we formulate a customized fitness assessment, and build a plan for your first three sessions.

Assessment.  We recommend most clients start with a fitness assessment if they are doing personal training.  Your first session features our award winning Fitness Assessment, which tests all aspects of fitness.  We benchmark your aerobic endurance, movement patterns, body awareness, strength and current flexibility. Coaches observe your experience with functional movement patterns including the squat, deadlift, pressing, pulling, lunging, rotation, and resisting rotation. The assessment provides both you and the staff with all the information needed to provide the right personal training program that fits you.

Meet with Paul to Discuss your Programming, Goals, and Customizations to your Personal Training Plan.

Benchmark your Fitness with our Fitness Assessment.  Test all aspects of your fitness, so that we can build you a customized personal training plan.

We find that clients that combine multiple services are more likely to reach their fitness goals. Sand and Steel offers Private Personal Training, Nutrition Coaching, Private Yoga Lessons, Mobility, and Boxing. 

Private Personal Training.  We offer many types of personal training programs at various skill levels.  We have weight loss programs, mobility programs, strength & conditioning, powerlifting, CrossFit programs, TRX based programs, etc.  You name it, we do it.  In addition, all workouts feature a warm-up, skills review, and mobility training.  Additionally, every Sand and Steel client has a custom spreadsheet that logs the workout program, fitness goal, and specially selected warm-ups. This ensures that all trainers have your client history to provide you with the best possible workout.

Nutrition. There aren’t many nutritionists in Alexandria VA that can claim that their diets work 100% of the time.  We can.  In all the years that Paul has been coaching nutrition, he hasn’t had one client that could not lose the weight they wanted — if they put in the work.  Our nutrition coaches teach diet systems based on leading research from nutritionists and dietitians.  We work with nutritionists in Alexandria VA and Washington DC to update and optimize our nutrition program.

Mobility TuneUp. Our Mobility Sessions are designed to help you move better. We test your movement and determine what is not moving well. We analyze how you compensate when you lift, turn, or step. We figure out what causes your pain, decreases your performance, or limits your range of motion.
