Personal coaching sessions are available for students who are looking for some extra instruction to work through a specific technical issue, catch up after an absence from classes, prepare for a competition, or otherwise address needs that cannot be met in group classes. We offer private and semi-private sessions with our skilled instructors at the following rates:
- Private Lessons: 1 credit/30 mins, or $80/hour
- Semi-Private Lessons (minimum 4 students): 1 credit ($40)/person/hour

Valkyrie WMAA offers nutrition consultation and coaching services with David R. Packer, a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified Coach. Coaches distinguished as Precision Nutrition Level 1 have completed an 18-week theory curriculum through Precision Nutrition, and have passed a written exam certifying their understanding of the best practices of nutrition. They are fully qualified to run independent coaching programs, and their knowledge rivals that of many graduate students. David has a particular interest in supporting the path that the majority of our students take -- from couch potato to athlete -- and has coached students for competition-level performance in martial arts.
Your nutrition coaching begins with a 2-part consultation. The first session determines your nutrition needs based on your 3-day eating diary, body composition, training schedule, and personal goals. In the second session, David will present you with a nutrition plan, and will work with you to set achievable nutrition goals and benchmarks. The full consultation costs $200.
Follow-up sessions can be booked at a rate of $100 each, and include a detailed review of eating diaries, re-assessment of body composition, and setting new goals or adjusting existing ones as required. Short-term email support is also included. Follow-up sessions should occur a minimum of 2 times per month.
We offer a package deal for nutrition clients who plan to work with us long-term: get the initial consultation plus 12 follow-up sessions for $800.
