I became a personal trainer to train myself. I was able to regain my health and fitness. But even more important, I have found my passion. I love helping others along their path to being healthy and fit.
Through my podcast, speaking to over 125 experts in health and fitness, and my work with many clients online, I've developed an approach that get results. I could just sign on with a local gym and train people there, or even open my own gym. But I'm not satisfied just helping a few local people. I want to help thousands of people, and the only way to do that is to provide online services.
I want to share a quote with you:

This past fall, my wife and I made a decision to invest in our health. With the help of Allan Misner, we learned what food really does to and for our bodies. We lost 29 and 38 pounds respectively. Lost inches, a lot of inches, from all over. We did not go hungry, actually ate more... just ate smarter.
Allan provides a variety of modalities to give information -- written, video, and audio which is a great way to reach a variety of learning styles for his clients. He is encouraging, explains concepts clearly, and provides support and encouragement along the way. It is clear that he is passionate about helping people find ways to not just "lose weight" but to truly develop a personal path to being "forever fit!"
How does online training work?
When you go to a personal trainer, you usually have a goal in mind. They work with you to set up programming and nutrition to help you reach those goals. Personal trainers provide encouragement and accountability. Very good personal trainers also use the time you have together to provide additional information and insight into health and fitness.
Online personal training is not much different. I'll still be helping you understand what you need to do to reach your goals and providing additional health and fitness advice. I'll be in your corner all the way providing encouragement and accountability. You just don't have to pay me to count reps (I think you can count).
Another cool thing about online personal training is that we don't have to sync our schedules to make it work. Life just has a way of getting in the way. But with an online environment, you don't have to wait until our next session to ask questions. This flexibility makes it fit your lifestyle, which is a key for sticking with a program.
What if I don't like to or can't exercise?
Exercise is a terrible word. As is workout. I prefer to call it training. Why? Because getting healthy and fit points to a purpose. That purpose is living better. If we begin looking at our training, which includes nutrition, lifestyle, and movement, it doesn't come off as a chore.
In the story above, one of the things John didn't tell you about Tammy was that she was suffering from a back problem and wasn't able to workout. She was still able to lose 29 lbs in 10 weeks. By focusing on what she could control, and moving more when she could, she still saw progress.
What if I'm not tech savvy?
I have set up the process to be very easy to use. If you can log on to a website and do email, you're good to go. There will be a single community location website for you to go. The newsletter will be sent to your email address. And, if you're a part of the one-on-one training, I'll provide step by step guidance on what I need you to do so I can customize your programming and nutrition.
Can I really get results with an online coach?
Yes, with one caveat: Are you willing to make changes? I can't do it for you. But I can provide guidance, support, encouragement, and accountability. And when you really think about why you would hire a personal trainer, doesn't that cover all the bases?
Isn't personal training expensive?
The short answer, yes. It can be very expensive if you pay a personal trainer to be with you each and every time you train. Most personal trainers charge from $40 - $150 per session. If you train three times per week, that can add up to $500 - $2,000 per month!
That is one of the advantages of online training. You're not paying someone to count reps. If you're willing to do the work, you'll see the same benefits at a fraction of the cost.
If you get in and it isn’t working for you, just cancel within the first 30 days and I’ll give you a full refund. You have nothing to lose, but the weight!
