Have you tried online trainers in the past and felt as though they didn’t focus on YOU? Ever feel like the template they sent you was the same cookie cutter they also sent out to dozens of others? Is he/she resistant to making frequent adjustments based on your feedback? Has your trainer ever answered a question you emailed them with “Google it”? If you answered yes to any of these questions, ask yourselves if it was worth the investment. Unfortunately, most trainees will continue to puppet their trainers services proclaiming him/her the best thing since the invention of sliced bread – Even though they answered yes to those questions! In my experience, it’s a human response to not want to admit that they made a poor investment.
Lucharilla offers distance training at a very reasonable price. If you are tired of your current “trainer” shooting you a cookie cutter program or would like to request more information regarding my services, please fill out the contact form at the bottom of the page. Here are some of the reasons why I am a different breed of trainer.
1) I write personalized training blocks one month at a time. I base my first block largely upon my initial client assessment and make all necessary adjustments during that first week to dial you into the programming. Each block thereafter I write based upon each subsequent block. In other words, I review the past block paying particular attention to what works vs. what doesn’t and in particular what you need to continue progressing. I coined the term “building blocks” as we are progressively moving from point A to point B always setting our sights on our ultimate goal (your reason(s) for hiring me). This is by far and away superior to other “trainers” emailing out some 3-4 day generic cookie cutter template straight off their desktop (which takes 3 min out of their day) and hoping you go away.
2) Each training block comes in the form of a training packet which usually runs at least 10 pages in length. One thing I never understood about other trainers is that they would write you a generic cookie cutter template and tell you to “run this until it stalls”. My question was always, “Why did you prescribe this?” This was the underlining reason why I chose to write a new packet for each new training phase. If I have a trainee that wants to train using the conjugated method (Westside), what good does it do to email him a template with a small paragraph of instructions (if you’re lucky)? Instead, I choose to write a massive “introduction” into the system he/she has chosen. In doing so, I move closer to achieving my goal of teaching them how to train themselves, but more importantly, they understand all the underlining concepts of the program which can only propel them towards success.
3) For every block I create from the ground up, I also create an Excel spreadsheet that I expect every trainee to fill in and submit at the end of each block. Each exercise is rated using the RPE scale. This RPE scale is extremely important towards my assessments and will increase the accuracy of the next block I write based on those ratings. If I see a trainee struggling at a perpetual RPE 10 using full body supersets, that indicates to me that their next block needs to be dialed back a notch while at the same time if I see something not challenging enough, the level of difficulty will be increased (pays to be a winner!).
4) I write nutritional packets explaining my approach to dieting and include many different approaches depending on the individual trainee. All diets work to varying degrees as everything boils down to a caloric issue. Anyone suggesting otherwise probably has a bridge for sale. If I have trainees that lead busy lives or have a lower degree of compliance I would lean towards an intermittent fasting protocol as that only requires two days of effort vs. Spartan compliance seven days per week. For the vast majority it requires a healthy varied diet spreading the love over all the food groups combined with calorie restriction or surplus. Most trainers are quick to provide you with a string of numbers (macros) and leave everything else up to you to figure out. I prefer to use the whole foods approach and more importantly teach you how to eat!
