FAQ

We want to work with highly committed individuals, such as yourself, who understand the value of top-notch training and coaching. We have repeatedly brought our client’s success, and we want to be there when YOU crush your mobility and strength goals too.

Our programs vary based on location. Our starting package at Motive Training Grand Rapids is around $350 per month, while Austin is $400 per month. Our goal is to get you to the gym 2-3 times per week (at minimum). Thus, our pricing structure encourages long-term commitments and higher training frequencies per week.

We can work with practically anyone, including those just starting on their fitness journeys or with particular injuries or medical conditions; our staff is educated and experienced in training pretty much anyone. So if you want to improve your body or how it moves, we can find a way to help, and we can even help you improve your injuries or physical conditions as long as it’s in conjunction with your medical team.

From the moment you walk in the door, we will evaluate and assess you on a completely individual level. Our intake process is thorough because we want to see what we can do to help you improve the inside out. Expect to sit down for 60-90 minutes to run through your goals and a thorough physical evaluation. 

Once we have the information we need, we will plan to get you where you need to go. We will set goals, take the appropriate progress tracking measurements, and then hit the ground running. You can expect to train with us at least twice per week, and you will receive programming that we encourage you to do outside of Motive Training.

This will greatly depend on your starting point and your goals. We’re not a quick-fix gym, so you shouldn’t expect things to change overnight. However, we’re dead set on giving you the tools and coaching you need to see results, so you will see changes within the first 1-3 months’ worth of training.

Many run-of-the-mill gyms offer trainers with different levels (e.g., you can work with a level 1 trainer versus a level 5 trainer). However, we set the bar higher because we believe you deserve the best service possible in our facilities no matter who you train with. So, our entire staff is certified through Functional Range Conditioning in some capacity. As a result, you will get a similar level of service regardless of the personal trainer we assign to you.

Personal training is the best way to get the body and results you want; there is no replacement for hands-on personal training. However, we understand that some will do well on their own with the right tools and guidance, so our team can help facilitate progress for those that are better fit for online coaching. Furthermore, online coaching might suit someone with a tighter budget or those not close to our main locations.

The best thing you can do is set up a call with our team. First, we want to learn more about you and your goals so we can show you how our personalized services can benefit you. Then, if you’re ready and willing, we will set up a consultation with you to go over everything you need to get results. Our consultation runs for 90 minutes and costs $99, but you won’t have to pay that until you’re ready to commit to the consultation process. From there, we hit the ground running and get you set up on a path to success via personal training, at-home programming, goal-setting, and more.

It is not required by any means, but we highly recommend the FRA® if you have joint pain, injuries, movement issues, or anything along those lines. The FRA® is a full exploration of your body and will give us a lot more information to work with regarding your personal training journey. We will still cover some of the FRA® in our 90-minute consultation, but it won’t be as in-depth on a physical level because time won’t allow for it.

Motive makes the difference

Being personal trainers and coaches is a side job for some, but this is our lives. We wake up every day with the mission to impact as many lives as we can with a coaching program and experience that is completely tailored to you.

Don’t waste another moment with coaches or trainers that don’t take you or your goals seriously.
