Gym where I currently train clients:
Can I meet my trainer somewhere besides a gym during Covid restrictions?
"Yes, I've been training clients at outdoor city parks in the area, North Boulder Park and Eben G. Fine Park for example. I bring weights, bands and other equipment based on your needs."
Can I bring my own equipment such as a yoga mat or hand weights that I've been using at home?
"Of course, bring anything to enhance the experience...and remember to bring H2O!"
Before our first session, do we meet to discuss my goals, my diet and any pre existing conditions I might have?
"Yes, it's imperative that we have a meeting to discuss these things so that I understand thoroughly your condition and understand your goals. I also bring an Assumption of Risk form, and Physical Activity Readyness Questioneer (PAR Q) form for you to read and sign."
Do you offer a 10 punch pass that I can buy which might offer a discount off the hourly rate?
"Yes, 10 punch pass is available for $600, a $10 savings per hour session."
"I started training with Ernie over 2 years ago with the aim to make workouts a part of my daily life. As I see myself getting stronger and fitter, the initial thoughts of “why am I doing this???” over morning coffee have changed to “Let’s do this!” Thanks to Ernie’s training, tips, and motivation the BolderBoulder 10km run became the highlight of my spring and I am looking at running a half marathon this fall. Ernie has the perfect feeling on choosing exercises that keep the balance between challenge and doable. He has helped me to find confidence in my physical strength and has taught me how to break the walls along the way. In addition to our weekly meetings I have started to exercise on my own. Yet knowing that I need that extra push and inspiration from a third party I will keep working out with him. Ernie is flexible, competent, friendly and reliable. I feel great and look forward to becoming fitter and healthier." ~Barbara Dix -Atmospheric Physicist, Boulder, CO
"I have been working out with Ernie now for one year now. As weekend warrior, endurance sport junkie, I came to Ernie with a pretty good fitness base. I have no problem self motivating for aerobic fitness training, but when it comes to strength training, I needed some help and motivation. Ernie listened carefully to my goals for our training sessions and has delivered big time! I look forward to our workouts and it is fun to see my strength improve each week. I have no doubt that the improvements in my strength will improve my overall fitness." ~Jeff Bernardy -Dr. of Denistry Boulder, CO
"Ernie Port has been my personal trainer for 8 years. He has kept me focused on my goals and certainly puts me through my paces each workout. I feel I have been able to maintain my strength, balance and coordination through the variety of exercises we do; no mean feat as I try to keep this aging body fit and healthy. Ernie is professional and knowledgeable and at the same time he is positive and cheerful. We have fun and laughs even as I grunt and groan! Still A-Number-One trainer - thanks so much, Ernie!" ~Mary C. Boulder, CO
"I really look forward to working out with Ernie each week! I needed the motivation to make exercise a part of my daily life and he has provided that motivation in a way that's relaxed and fun. Since I started working with Ernie, I'm stronger and more fit and our weekly workouts are always enjoyable. I like having a standing appointment with Ernie, it keeps me moving forward with my goals and I can see the progress. Ernie has a calm personality, so even though he pushes me, it's always positive. Aside from my improved fitness, I've genuinely appreciated the chance to get to know Ernie - I feel like I have a really fit friend who comes to work out with me each week!" ~Greeley Sachs Longmont, CO
"Ernie fits my needs superbly. He takes me thru a great regimen for an 86 year old guy, is dependable and punctual. I always leave the gym looking forward to working with a caring friend, not just a training client." ~Stanley Goldberg Boulder, CO
