I agree to do the following:
- To be on time for our appointments. If for some reason, I am late, or if I miss an appointment without reasonable prior notice your next session is free.
- To be completely honest and candid with you about the training you receive from me, and what you can reasonably expect to achieve.
- To work with you as long as you are medically and physically fit to train, and willing to put in the effort to benefit from my advice and my experience.
- To be completely open to your questions, and if I do not know the answer I will tell you so.
- If I think you can benefit more from training with someone else, I will tell you.
- If I do not think you have anything to gain from training with me, I will tell you.
You agree to the following:
- To be on time for our appointments. If you miss an appointment without reasonable prior notice, then you will be expected to pay for the missed appointment.
- To accept me as your trainer, and to follow my advice and recommendations related to your training. If you do not have confidence in my ability to train you, then you should discontinue working with me.
- To be patient. Everyone progresses at a different rate, and everyone has their own unique limitations related to running. I will do my best to set reasonable expectations for you, but training is as much art as it is science.
- To be honest with me about any medical condition or injury that may affect your ability to train. If I think that training may do you more harm than good, I reserve the right to either temporarily or permanently discontinue your training. I am, of course, willing to work with your doctor and other medical professionals to determine what is best.
- To be completely honest with me on any questions I ask concerning your training. I need accurate information to help you achieve best possible results.
- To pay me in a timely manner for my services. In the case of non-payment, I will NOT badger you for payment, or turn the matter over to a collection agency. However, I will just discontinue working with you until the matter is resolved.
