Sweat Studio offers a wide variety of fitness programs.  Some clients may excel faster than others.  Not all programs are ideal for everyone however if a client were to learn the entire collection it may require 136 to 224 hourly sessions. The duration to complete all programs listed below may take 1 to 2 years if a client were to train a minimum of 10 sessions per month.    Learning the entire collection may escalate a client’s ability to go beyond the knowledge of a typical personal trainer.  Upon completion of all these programs does not necessarily classify someone as an expert, however it does broaden physical abilities to an elite state.

Each program below has 3 tiers (levels of instruction).  The Development level is learning or a cognitive stage where the trainer is spending more time with instruction, demoing and modifying exercises.  At the Associative level the trainer concentrates on improving performance of the client in which training requires some corrective actions.  The Supervisory level is when client has reached adaptation in the specific program.  Very little corrective action is needed, but observation and suggestive interaction is still important.

Sweat Studio is about to attempt something never done before in the Personal Training Industry.  On September 22, 2015 (first day of fall) we will introduce a new structure of pricing.


First of all, I’m not saying that sessions are being delivered below their actual value, I am simply stating some sessions require more effort by the trainer while others require less.  In just about every gym, every fitness chain, there are workout sessions with no measureable consistency.    Although most facilities have standard procedures on how to design a long term client program, there are no regulations how much volume of assistance and expertise is delivered to fulfill the requirements of a session.


Trainer ‘Jack’ is a master personal trainer, he is paid $80 per session.

  1. He has a new client named Bob, Bob is new to lifting weights and has a few joint issues.
  2. Bob needs consistent guidance, where his trainer Jack really needs to focus on Bob’s performance, constantly correcting movements.
  3. Jack is demonstrating almost each exercise twice because these movements seem so awkward to Bob.
  4. Bob mentions he feels uncomfortable with doing body squats, so Jack modifies the exercise to a Wall Ball Squat.
  5. Because of Bob’s posture deviations, Jack will assign him homework exercises in which he will do on his off-time.

Trainer ‘Bill’ is a master personal trainer, he also is making $80 per session.

  1. Jane is his new client, she was a track athlete in High School
  2. Jane is a little overweight but she moves well during her workout.
  3. Bill demonstrates, Jane picks up on the movement quickly and rarely needs to be corrected.
  4. Because Jane has had some experience, Bill can verbally say the next exercise on the list and Jane can perform it well with no hesitation.
  5. Bill observes and makes his professional suggestions to improve Jane’s performance.

You may notice trainer ‘Jack’ had to be ontop of his client’s workout at all times when trainer ‘Bill’ just utilized his expertise of suggestion.  Both of these trainers are at the same tier level but it’s only obvious Jack had to provide a significantly greater amount of effort to get his session done.   Yet  both sessions are valued at the same price.  These are two examples occur almost every day in the Personal Training business.   It’s not that Bill is a lazy personal trainer, it’s because his client has already developed the skills needed to perform the workout assigned, and it was still an effective workout for Jane.  Bill’s next session with Jane may be quite different because he will teach her High Intensity Interval Circuit, which Jane is unfamiliar with.   This is where Bill may need to do some extra leg work.

From being a former production control analyst, my job was to improve manufacturing productivity while at the same time reducing expenses.   The duty was to get ‘most bang for your buck’ and I see these tactics can be implemented in the Personal Training industry as well.   Clients should pay trainers on how much effort is put in the session. But yet it is important to keep variable factors in consideration such as ‘Trainer Bill’ is a better motivator than ‘Trainer Jack’ therefore a client wouldn’t mind paying the same rate even if Bill is not struggling to teach a client something new.  Now,  can trainers teach something new in every session?  Perhaps, but this is not logical personal training for longer terms as repetitive movement is necessary to establish expertise.

So the bottom line is not all training sessions are at equal effort, therefore pricing should be adjusted according to the type of program or workout assigned at the time.    This is NOT to categorize and place clients at specific fitness levels, but to distinguish the effort needed to effectively teach a new specific category based on the familiarity and performance on which the client can deliver.   We want to emphasize this pricing as “Discounts prices for those who adapt.”

  1. Development Training $55 to $59
  2. Associative Training $50 to $54
  3. Supervisory Training $45 to $49

Development Training

Cognitive stage.  Client is learning new principles, techniques, exercises and programming.

On a weekly basis, 33% of the session time is learning new exercises. Trainer  is implementing the protocol: 1. Describe, Demo movement, Demo with load, Cue and guide client, make suggestions.  High supervision is required.

Associative Training

Associative learning . Client understand basic movements of the current program.  Form is good with most exercises but some areas lack perfection.  20% of  weekly sessions is learning new exercises.  Moderate interaction required.

Supervisory Training

Client is in the autonymous stage of training.  Good understanding of all the movements, is aware when form is incorrect. 10 % of weekly sessions is learning something new.  Trainer observes and make suggestions to improve the quality of the exercises.  Very little interaction is required.

Each level of pricing is determined prior to training. No level is stagnant meaning levels can be different  from session to session depending on the interest and the efficiency of the program.  However, this is not recommended.

Determining when client is ready for the next level.

Leveling up is at the discretion of the personal trainer OR can be determined by testing the client in the given program.   A test may be requested for scheduling after the minimum amounts have surpassed.  (see below) The standard protocol is to pass by 80%. Since there is a wide variety of programs tests are variable.   Example: The general resistance test content consists of performing 6 exercises correctly in each major muscle group  (Legs, Chest,  Back, Shoulders, Arms, Core)  Client must answer a few questions regarding programming .   There are many different types of Training Programs and some may overlap content, but provided programs should be distinguishable.  It is the Personal Trainer’s duty to analyzed the client’s progress based on the inputted data on Sweat Studio’s application EfitX.

Types of Sweat Studio Programs.

Each program has all three tiers of: Development, Associative, and Supervisory.    Since every client learns at a particular pace, there is no logical time-frame to ‘level-up ‘ a client but we can provide guidelines on the minimum amount necessary.   Once a client reaches Supervisory Level, training may continue to any length desired.

  • General resistance training : includes learning several exercises for each muscle group, super sets, opposing muscle super sets and compound circuits.  Understands exercises in their planes of motion.   Progressions.   (4 weeks min. in Development Level)
  • High Intensity Interval Training:  includes learning the type of exercises, how to sequence them in a routine.  Progressions  (2 weeks min in Development Level)
  • Combination Exercises Circuits: How to perform combination movements in a circuit.  General, opposing, compound, planes.  (4 weeks min. in Development Level)
  • Body building  (8 weeks min.  in Development Level)
  • Basic Sports Performance ( 4 weeks min. in DL)
  • Weightlifting aka Olympic-Style (8 weeks min. in DL)
  • Powerlifting (4 weeks min. in DL)
  • Boxing (4 weeks min. in DL)


John has been in the personal training business for over 23 years.   He has trained over 21,000 hourly sessions ; not many other trainers have accomplished this amount to date, if not any others..   Also, John has served time as an educator to certify new personal trainers through De Anza College.  His experience is very dynamic servicing many different types of clients; some physically challenged, some were athletes, along with many genres of the general population.  One of his objectives is to explain that existing protocols and guidelines need to be challenged and feels privileged to create new ones.


efitxlogomdWith almost 600 users, I’m anxious to get started with version 6 but unfortunately I haven’t had any time.  We are seeing  many new users enrolling from the East Bay near the Antioch area.  This is because one of my top users (Dion Powell) who lives in this area is doing a great job by utilizing EfitX with his clients.  Soon the EfitX team will be running workshops in different cities.


There hasn’t been many new features added in the past year but I must say the new Workout Volume Meter is becoming a useful tool.   I realized a lot of our clients are hitting personal bests, getting stronger and improving endurance significantly.    Knowing how much a client pushed during the previous workout is a key factor in designing the correct progressions.


Could you believe 5 out of our 6 weightlifting clients are in the age range between mid-40’s to upper 50’s?  This is no longer a young person’s sport!  Since I became certified for USA Weightlifting in May of this year, I am impressed on how much progress our group has made.   There are three of our lifters that need to lift a few more kilos and qualify for national masters competition.

Currently a few of us are pursuing to meet national qualifications by November, 2015.   To do this a lifter must compete in a USAW sanctioned event and have two referees confirm the qualification totals.   This would make a lifter(s) eligible to compete at national level events and represent the USA.  I’d like to aim for the April Pan American Games in Puerto Rico.

POWERLIFTING [me deadlifting]

First of all, too many people are confused by the term “Powerlifting” versus “Weightlifting” (aka Olympic –Style Lifting).   Although they share similar exercises these are two entirely different genres of sports.   Almost all of Sweat Studio clients have already performed some style of Powerlifting.   They consist of the Barbell Deadlift, Barbell Squat and the Barbell Bench Press.   On the other hand, Weightlifting consists of two lifts; The Snatch and the Clean and Jerk.  However, development exercises for Weightlifting include a more aggressive style of a Barbell Squat and Deadlift.

I am currently pursuing a powerlifting competition to hopefully  break the current American Record in my class.  My first attempt may come in early 2016.


Since 2008 Sweat Studio has been the premiere fitness facility to support first time body physique competitors.   12 of our clients have competed and showcased their physique in Women’s Figure, Bikini and Men’s Physique with accumulated winnings of over 43 trophies.  Also, we want to congratulate Yvonne Bastian for reaching Figure Pro Level during the Labor Day Weekend.  She travelled to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania  to compete in the IFBB North American and NPC Nationals;  3 day event which had over 800 competitors.  Yvonne started her fitness quest with Sweat Studio in 2009.

As 2015 slides into the fourth quarter , Sweat Studio has yet produced a new competitor this year.  So we are hoping to keep the tradition alive with two new competitors and myself to be ready before the year ends.  If you are interested on attending one of these events please stay in contact with this blog or our Facebook Team Page: www.facebook.com/sweatstudioteam

Polar Loop Week 2

Here is the Polar Loop report for Week 2.  This week was with the wrist band alone.  Like most activity trackers the loop is using a movement sensor to track activity along with the profile attributes you have entered in their online application.   Next week I will be conducting tests WITH the loop paired with the H7 chest strap heart rate monitor on specific days.    My activity has been consistent on a weekly basis.




We are proud to have established Sweat Studio as the place to go for first time fitness competitors.  Since 2008 we have seen 10 of our competitors hit the stage while taking home a total of 26 trophies to date!  Every year the demand for our competition training increases and every year we continue to enhance our program.   Having this competition team has shown to boost value of the company especially when one of our competitors does well or places with a trophy.  For 2014 we will continue to offer our support. We welcome first timers, novice and seasoned candidates to inquire about our new competitor sponsorship program.

The NPC is a large organization and these shows are more recognized by the IFBB, Arnold Classic, and the Olympia.  If you want to pursue any of these leagues or the big ‘O’, it’s a must you compete in the NPC first.   These events are not drug tested therefore you may find it very difficult to place in the top 5.  If you decide to stay natural, you can try out the INBA, OCB, IFPA competitions.   These are usually smaller shows, but at least you will be competing on more fair grounds.   Drug Tests are performed on the day of event usually from urine and costs about $60.   Although these events are drug tested, it doesn’t mean that competitor has been free and clean all their life.   In the amateur division it’s possible to cheat the system but of course I am advising you not to do it anyway if you can.   Some athletes may bulk up using banned anabolic substances 6 months prior to the show.  Also some of these so-called natural athletes may take diuretics pills during their training cycle to drop more subcultaneous water. As they approach closer to show time, they stop these substances, and wait for the traces to subside.  While anabolic, enhancers and steroid products may stay in your system for weeks, months or years, diuretics and water pills may only stay in your system for a few days.  So yes, there are cheaters.   However, once an amateur earns a pro card, they may be obligated to random testing making abusing substances very difficult.  You’ve probably heard similar stories on the news of professional athletes getting busted and usually abuse is discovered during the off season. Whether you decide to take banned substances from the WADA prohibited list or would like to do it the hard way by staying clean, every competitor needs to do a thorough job researching these over-the-counter products.  There are way too many products using misleading terms and descriptions.   Now don’t be completely discouraged if you decide NOT to take banned substances and  compete in the NPC.  You don’t need to rule out every supplement, there are many safe and effective products. So, it is still possible for a natural to win big in an NPC show.



NPC Men’s Physique started 3 years ago and is still new to the industry but since then the competition has become really stiff. Some NPC events in California total more than 100 Men Physique competitors alone.  Every year men are becoming more chiseled into that perfect beach body.   Sometimes it makes you wonder, on how abdominals can take shape the way they do.   We’ve seen lean abdominal mid-sections before in magazines and on TV, but today to be a contender in the NPC league you may need a mid-section so freaky that may seemingly defy nature.  But, is this natural?

The main focal point for Men’s Physique is to have a well ripped mid-section.  But for most guys, we may not have the luxury and genes to develop this with training alone.  Therefore if you want to become a top competitor in the NPC most likely you will need to take substances such as diuretics, performance enhancers, and sometimes anabolic products.  But I strongly advise to avoid these banned products if not absolutely necessary. There are too many risks and danger for developing long term health problems.  If you plan on becoming  a professional athlete or compete in other events, depending on the type of substance, some traces may stay in your system for days, perhaps weeks or even months or years.  Testing positive may disqualify you temporarily or even in some cases for life.

I myself compete in both natural competition and non-drug tested competitions.  I have several trophies but being a true natural competitor, I find it very difficult to compete in the NPC.  I started fairly late so currently at age 46 and 5 foot 3, I’m one of the eldest and shortest competitors in Men’s Physique.  My age makes it very difficult to develop ripped abs to be a good contender in the NPC.     To make things even more challenging, I’m usually competing against guys over 6 feet tall because there is only one class category for age 45 and up.   Also, to compete in the Open Class category where there are no age restrictions, is a task and a lot of extra work for those that want to avoid banned substances.   The bottom line is everyone needs to understand their own purpose of doing the competition in the first place.  Some people just want to prove something, others want to build a career upon the sport.   I do it because it’s fun, educational, and it helps me enhance my personal coaching abilities to train more fellow competitors.


Women Physique competitors are judged by physique, presentation of routine, asthetics and more characteristics than Men Physique competitors.   Symmetry becomes the main aspect and if you have ripped abdominals that would be icing on the cake.  Because size is not a huge factor as in Women’s Bodybuilding,  it’s very possible to become a contender as a natural.


NPC Figure and Bikini competitions that remain clean from banned substances, can do well in competition.   The judging for Figure has toned down the past few years and that ‘Hard’ look may not be what judges are looking for.




There are a lot of resources you can find online to get started as a competitor.  You can find a lot of 12 to 16 week programs costing from $300 to $600.  But beware, you may discover that a vast majority of these are actually a rip-off.   The common problem is that coaches just want your money and offer very little support in the long run.  Sometimes you may pay for a 16-week program that is a simple template recycled from one competitor to the other.  Now, perhaps in some cases this program will work, but what reason why a coach should charge their client over $800, $1000, $1500 for this document?!  Is there some secret technique included that is worth this much dough?  Are you paying for several personal training sessions too?  Is this coach offering hours of consulting valued at this price?

Hiring an established pro-competitor is sometimes a good decision but in most cases is not a guarantee that their program will work for you.   Even if you decide to hire a certified personal trainer, they still may not have the appropriate knowledge or experience on what a competitor needs.  We suggest to find a coach with multiple qualifications relevant to your type of competition.  An example would be an active competitor, with a personal training certification and with experience training other competitors.

The Sweat Studio Training Team has the credentials.  We boast 22 years of Certified Personal Training, extensive nutrition experience, 6 years of training competitors AND our team are still very active competitors; something to keep in mind.  Over 10 competitors have hit the stage and our team has brought home over 26 trophies.

The Sweat Studio Team cares about our image and reputation too, we highly promote staying natural and encourage all competitors and clients to stay clean and avoid any banned substances listed by WADA.   Besides aren’t you hiring a coach based on their expertise and their ability to get you fit safely and quickly?  Taking banned supplements can be referred to as cheating and when you are cutting–corners you are putting risks on your health.  If you have a coach that is stringent on taking them, then perhaps this coach does not have the true expertise to get you ‘competition ready’ without  using them.  And how much are you paying for these services again?




–          Bodyfat: Female must by under 22%, Males under 18%

–          Symmetry:  Ideal balance and proportions of specific muscles related to the competition category

–          Profile: General Information, Medical History, Fitness assessment

–          Statistics: Gathering of Measurements, weight , body fat, strength test, pictures


Structure and schedule of the program are all customized based on what the competitor needs.  All Macronutrients, Nutrition, Supplements, Basic Exercises and techniques will be customized and adjusted specifically for each phase.  There are 4 different phases that are implemented throughout the 16 week program.

–          Bulking Phase: 4 weeks

–          Cutting Phase: 4 weeks

–          Bulking Phase 2: 3 weeks

–          Sculpting Phase: 3 weeks

–          Peak Week: 7 to 10 Days.



Competitor will do their best to follow up to 4 provided menus.  We provide some guidance and suggestions on how to food prep these specific foods.  Menus will be adjust accordingly to the way the competitor progresses and any foods that are not on these lists need to be approved by the coach.  General supplements will be recommended these may include:  vitamins, protein shakes, Branched Chained Amino Acids (BCAA), L-Glutamine.  Any other suggested supplementation will have been thoroughly researched to stay within the guidelines of WADA (World Anti-Doping Association)


Keep in mind that the reason why we want and are capable of sponsoring competitors is to promote our product EFITX; our professional virtual coaching application.  Competitors should make the effort on using the application.

We support competitors very frequently, but we have realized that the competitors that actually succeed on stepping on stage are the competitors that have good communication with their coach.   Our last three competitors had something in common that became an important aspect on why they were able to compete within a few months. Two of them used our app EfitX/Efit Tracker to enter their nutrition and although the third competitor did not use EfitX, she provided screen shots of MyFitnessPal and communicated by email almost on a daily basis.   The more your coach can see what you eat on a frequent basis, the more they can guide you in the right direction.   Now, we actually don’t like coordinating a program utilizing MyFitnessPal because the lacking ability to share appropriate data between coach and client.   Our app EfitX was specifically developed for that reason.   It’s really simple to use, just learn it and put the effort to use it.  It was designed with features on what coaches would like to see and provides a real-time connection between the two parties reducing procrastination and lag time in the program.   It’s significantly quicker and efficient than sending your food journal by email, it’s faster than writing on paper. And it’s all electronically and shared in the cloud.  EfitX makes life much easier for your coach to manage and make adjustments to your program.


Posing coaching should begin no later than 8 weeks out of competition.  Occasionally the posing practice will be video recorded for competitor/coach evaluation.  Remember posing presentations may differ from Organization to Organization.  NPC Men’s Physique posing is completely different from INBA Men’s Physique posing!  For Bodybuilding, Women’s Physique and Fitness, a routine is required and we can support in your choreography.   We will sometimes outsource additional assistance if needed.


We have the sources for competition suits, tanning, hair and make-up and all the important aspects for show presentation.  Our program will provide competitors a schedule to purchase these items, book travel plans if any, and provide a check list.


On show day, only competitors will be allowed backstage.  So when Sweat Studio has a competitor at a show, we usually have a fellow competitor or coach that may be competing as well.  This peer may assist you back stage with any issues with aesthetics, posing, or perhaps administration.    Pictures, video and media footage is an important part of the sponsorship so be prepared for photos before, during and after the show.


First of all, if you’ve read all the above and meet the physical requirements, contact  Sweat Studio for a free consultation.  Currently only 3 Class A sponsorships and 3 Class B sponsorships will be available for Through March 2014 .   Depending on the outcome of these specific shows, more sponsorship support may be offered.   Send email to: john@sweatstudio.com
