I’m not your typical online trainer.
For one thing, I have a PhD (in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences), which enables me to take a super scientific approach to training.
For another, I don’t believe in cookie-cutter programs. I write every single training program for my clients from scratch – no templates – based on their unique needs and goals.
Here’s how online training with me works:
We start with a one-hour consultation, where we chat about your goals, training history, injury history, lifestyle, training schedule, likes and dislikes, access to equipment, etc.
I take that information, mix it all together, and design a monthly individualized training program for you. The program includes short YouTube video tutorials of each exercise, additional coaching cues, sets/reps, and space to record your weights and notes.
We then keep in touch as much or as little as you need.
Just need a program once a month? Great! Need more check-ins about your form or have lots of questions? Also great! Send me a video or shoot me an email, and you’ll hear back from me within a day or two.
Who’s my online training program for?
I work with a wide range of clients (see testimonials below, for example), from high-level athletes to senior citizens. The common threads are the desire to get stronger, train smarter and pain-free, and perform better, whether that’s in sports or activities of daily living.
- • One check-in per month⠀
- (for new program)
- • Email check-ins (form, questions, dog pics, etc.) after every workout
What Travis’s Clients Are Saying
Before I started working with Travis, I was dealing with a nagging shoulder injury and a back injury that had left me in chronic pain. I heard Travis speak on a podcast and was intrigued by his approach to pain reduction and decided to email him. I was wary of online coaching, but from the moment I “met” Travis on our first video call, I felt totally reassured. Travis was professional, knowledgeable, patient, thorough, and very easy to talk to. He designed a workout program that was custom designed to my space, the equipment I had and, most importantly, created an individualized plan that addressed my injuries and focused on exercises that I could do pain free. My initial goals for working with Travis were to work through my fear of exercise and get back to enjoying movement. Over the last 15 months of working with Travis, I’ve smashed those goals. I can now confidently say that I am pain free for the first time in years and no longer live in fear of reinjuring myself. Now, I’m working towards improving my strength, balance and coordination, and regularly celebrating fitness achievements that had previously seemed unattainable. Travis is a master of his craft. He’s creative, informed, encouraging, witty, has great taste in music and I’d recommend him in a heartbeat. I could gush on and on about Travis’ programming and coaching but suffice it to say that Travis is a rare find in the fitness industry and I’m so happy to have found him.
Travis is a fantastic trainer and human being. I am lucky to have been introduced to Travis when I needed a personal trainer to help me get my confidence back and my body in shape after dealing with a major and serious health issue. After months of working with him, I can highly recommend Travis. He motivates and pushes you to do your best. He personalizes your workouts to you and your ability and, furthermore, he is very attentive. I believe he can help anyone with their unique transformation. Travis is extremely knowledgeable and stays on top of my routine and future goals as if they were his own. Also, given his impressive educational background, he also stays abreast of research and the best methods. As a direct result of my training with Travis, I have become healthier, happier, stronger and more confident!
Somehow or another, I’ve become a gym rat over the last 14 years. What started as an aid to quit smoking when I turned 30 has now become a necessity for being a functioning husband, parent, teacher, and human. I don’t know how I got here, but here I am…the person who now finds a gym while on vacation. As others were hoarding toilet paper this past March when COVID shut down whatever normal was, I found a flat bench and what seemed to be the last pair of adjustable dumbbells (as heavy as I could find them), scrounged up an ab-wheel and some other things we had laying around the house, and got in touch with the good Doctor Pollen to set me up with some spicy home workouts that would maintain my fitness goals. This guy exceeded my expectations. In fact, I’d go so far as to say he has reconfigured my idea of what my workouts should be. It’s easy to get caught up in habitual movement, and were it not for Travis, there are several parts of each workout he’s given me that I would have never considered doing. His pragmatic, data-driven approach to personal training is both refreshing and enlightening, and I recommend him to anyone who is interested in maintaining long-term physical health and wellness.
After taking 6 years off, Travis was able to help me return better than ever as I continue to train for Olympic Trials. He is quick to answer questions, watch videos and give feedback and write workouts that best fit my needs. I know that I can fully trust Travis to get me to where I want to be within my strength training. He is one to go above and beyond what the job calls for and I am forever grateful for him!
