Frequently Asked Questions
What does a 1:1 fitness coach do?
A 1:1 coach provides personalized fitness and nutrition guidance, including individualized workout plans and nutrition advice, tailored to meet the specific goals and needs of the client. The coach may also offer accountability, motivation, and support throughout the process of reaching the desired fitness goals.
What's the difference between personal training and online coaching?
A personal trainer is usually someone you work with on a per-session basis, one workout at a time. When you work with an online coach through Train Till Death, you have access to your coach from right there in your pocket. Not only do you get the convenience of 1:1 coaching from a remote setting, your building a relationship with a coach that understands you and is always working to build a customized program that adapts to meet your goals.
What does personalized programming mean?
Personalized programming is a fully customized plan, designed around your own specific goals, needs, and fitness background. It is a long-term strategic plan that maps out the entire journey of where you are today and how that road looks over time in order to accomplish your goals. A personal program can also evolve and change over time as you level-up your abilities and your goals may change over time.
How do we track progress?
Depending on your goals we have many different sets of metrics to go by. For some clients looking for weight loss or body recomposition we use photos, measurements, and bodyweight. If your goals are based on strength building or performance, we track progressions. All of this is done and monitored through TrainHeroic.
How often do I talk to my coach?
We believe in building fitness over a lifetime. One initial consultation at the beginning isn’t enough. It’s important to address progress, goals, and priorities as your progress through life and fitness. Goals are met, things come up, schedules and life changes. These meetings help us stay on track and adjust to what’s going on in the clients life.
Every week, your coach will send out a survey over the app, TrainHeroic, with a series of simple questions for you to answer that helps us stay on track. This survey will be a quick recap on your training for the week. It’s a way for us to monitor progress from week-to-week and give us data to talk about over our monthly consultations.
In addition, every month we have a 30-60 minute video call or phone call to go over any details or feedback from your weekly check-ins and discuss your week-to-week progress overall.
Where should I train?
Simple answer? Anywhere. Your apartment, your yard, the woods, or your moms house. Fitness happens wherever you are.
A more direct answer you’re probably looking for? We suggest training in any gym you have available. Just keep it fun and keep it real. Your coach will give you workouts based on whatever resources you have available. Going on vacation, a business trip, or on a national tour with your band? Tell your coach your itinerary, and they can adjust your programming based on the hotel gym you're at, what equipment you bring with you, or if you can only do bodyweight training while on the road. We got you.
What if I don't have a lot of equipment?
No biggie. Your personal coach will take everything into consideration when creating your personalized programming and workout plans. When you sign up, we’ll discuss all these factors in order to create your customized plan. All you need is yourself, and we can work out the rest.
Can I book any extra time with you? What does this look like? How much?
You bet. If you find you need more time outside your weekly check-ins or monthly consultations, you can book more time at a minimal cost. We are available to help talk through any needs or questions like managing stress levels, breaking down your priorities, nutrition, or basic lifestyle guidelines at any point in your regular training. Just contact us or reach out to your coach directly for availability on added consultation time.
All consultations are done over video calls through the app, Zoom. We will book a time that works for both you and your coach. Added consultations are charged at a standard rate of $50 per hour.
How does billing work?
When you sign up, your account will be created with a subscription billing service that will automatically charge your card with your monthly payment. If you need to make any changes, reach out to your coach and they can help.
What if I want to cancel or change my plan?
If you decide you want to cancel your 1:1 coaching plan with us, please reach out directly to your coach as soon as possible. Cancellations require a 2-week notice before your next scheduled auto-payment. Auto-payments are not prorated based on signup or cancellation dates.
If you want to change your plan, reach out to your coach at any time to make the requested changes.
