Workout Program Questions:
Q: What does the workout programs include?
A: Be sure to reference the description of the workout programs to confirm what the individual program contains. The workout program is a PDF that is available for dowload after purchase. The workout programs typically include a detailed description of the program with supporting information on warmups, cooldowns, and overtraining information. Then there will be the training regimen itself, usually organized in a table format that is easy to read and follow. Attached will be an exercise index which has hyperlinks to listed exercises so that the correct exercise can be referenced with an example of proper form. Some workout programs will have detailed nutritional info and a body weight workout routine attached. Again, be sure to reference the product description to confirm what the program contains.
Q: What equipment do I need for these programs?
A: Depends on the program, but ideally access to a gym is highly recommended. However, some programs also include a body weight routine, this addition will be stated in the product description. Essentially, some programs have two workout routines attached for the price of one. The primary program will be a gym program, but it will include a supplemental bodyweight program in case a gym is unavailable. I did this to accomodate for the COVID lockdown, because I understand that some poeple do not have access to a gym right now. Short answer: most programs have been accomodated for and you can perform with little to no equipment if a gym is not available to you.
Q: How long are the programs?
A: Currently, most programs are designed for 2 months but I have several programs that are longer. The TLR Warrior Program is currently the most lengthy and in depth program at 6 months in duration. See product descriptions for details.
Q: Have there been any success stories from clients using your programs?
A: I am very proud to say a lot of people have left overwhelmingly positive feedback. My social media is littered with success stories and client messages. I have also added a testimonials and reviews page to this website for you to reference!
Q: Are the programs only for military people?
A: This service is for anyone and everyone. The main goal in advertising as Train Like a Ranger is to market myself as a former member of the physically rigorous 75th Ranger Regiment. Beyond that, I have worked as a trainer and coach for years serving people from all different walks of life. My expertise is broad and these services are not exclusive to any group in particular. Though some programs are marketed as military prep programs, they would be able to be applied to the average person and athlete effectively.
Q: What does the checkout process look like for the workout programs? Can I view them from my phone?
A: Once checkout is complete you will see a button that allows you to download the pdf immediately, but if you are not ready to download right away, no worries! There will also be an email that is sent to the email you provide that includes a link that allows for the program to be downloaded for up to 30 days after purchase. However, make sure you save a permanent copy to one or more devices within the 30 day period. Also, If you have a smart phone, the pdf can be viewed and saved there as well.

Q: What was your MOS?
A: My job in the Army was known as a Fire Support Specialist. The MOS is 13f, also known as a Forward Observer.
Q: Why did you become a fitness professional?
A: I have always been a fitness fanatic. The worst punishment for me as a kid was to get grounded. Not because I couldn't see my friends, but because I couldn't go to the gym and workout. When I joined the military at 18, I was super into the fitness aspect of it. To be quite honest with you, there wasn't much of the physical demands of the military that I didn't excel in. As a Team Leader in the 75th Ranger Regiment, I was put in charge of the Fire Support Team physical training (pt). I was left this responsibility due to my desire to take that role and my high pt scores. This is where I first gained an interest in leading people in fitness. I felt a great sense of accomplishment from watching our team excel in pt scores. I have worked as a fitness trainer since 2017. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, with a minor in Biology. I also hold several fitness certifications to include: NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, ISSA Certified Specialist in Sports Nutrition, and ISSA Certified Personal Trainer. Overall, I love fitness and the fitness industry, I am always looking at new certifications and education to build my credibility. I still actively compete in martial arts and look to expand on the services of fitness that I can offer in the future! The most rewarding feeling for me is to help someone achieve their fitness goal. The fitness industry is overwhelmingly positive and rewarding and I have no doubt that I have found my calling.
