How does private training work?
Our private training lessons can be held either in your own home, at a public location like a park, or at our state of the art training facility at Carrara.
Each lesson goes for one hour.
Appointments are available Monday - Thursday during the day, or we offer after hours appointments with a $25 surcharge on Monday & Thursday evenings.
For most programs we recommend one lesson per week, or we can adjust your schedule to whatever frequency suits best for you.
You're welcome to bring the whole family to your sessions, and we also provide homework sheets so anyone unable to attend can catch up.
