- A hybridized program combining personal training and nutrition coaching
- Personal training that is individualized to you and your goals. All personal training clients receive their own exercise program tailored to their needs and goals
- An option for text and email correspondence for accountability and support
- A training program that is thorough, safe, and functional. I emphasize establishing quality movement, improving stability, and building strength. Only when those pieces are in place will we add intensity.

Review of Caitlin at Clandestine Strength by Anna Javellana

I'm writing this review because I miss this gym so very much! I'm amazed at how Vern and Caitlin always seem to remember what each of their clients is striving towards. Even though classes are taught in a group setting, they still find ways to individually challenge each member. Being a part of this gym puts you in direct contact with others who are working for one goal or another. The environment is great for all levels and the community aspect is what makes it worth the investment.

I could write a book on how much I love this place, but I’ll keep it short. I don’t know what I would do without Vernon, Caitlin and the community that trains here from all walks of life. It’s more than just a place to “go work out” and you feel how special it is on your first day. Your pushed past what you think are your limitations and gain a new self confidence. Anything I’ve been asked to do in the last 3 years of coming here I’ve never felt that my safety was in jeopardy. You can visually see that the staff cares about your wellness and improving in whatever aspects in life that you share with them. This is the way training should be started and continued. I’ve never felt peer pressured to drastically change my nutrition or start on any fad diets. The changes come little by little with casually talking to the staff. You can NOT find a more individualized coaching staff than at Clandestine. One of the best kept secrets in Dakota county.

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this place. The workout environment is like no other. Everyone is so welcoming and encouraging, I was so nervous my first time going but everyone was so nice and accepting. Vernon and Caitlin push to limits I didn’t even no I could push pass, I am so grateful for clandestine.

Clandestine Strength is a amazing place to workout, with warm and welcoming members. Vernon Neal and Caitlin Buckvold are top class coaches. The attention you get from these coaches is equivalent to quality Personal training. They have well structured workout plan from Beginners to Competitors.

Been coming here for 2 years now, and it's a great experience. Vernon and Caitlin are very knowledgeable and practice what they preach. I joined this gym after being tired of the monotony of planning my own workouts at the gym, and it is a fantastic way to get in shape and continually try something new.

Great place to workout. Vernon is an amazing trainer. Very knowledgeable and spends time explaining how not-to-do exercises. Workout sessions have been very challenging yet enjoyable! Thanks for making my first crossfit experience top-notch!

Caitlin at Clandestine Strength Q&A

Company Q&A

How do you help your clients achieve their fitness goals?

I help my clients achieve their fitness goals by individualizing their programming and adjusting the approach to fit each client's goals and needs. As my client, I also take the time to sit down with you and discuss what you hope to get out of personal training. Our partnership will include an endgame established at the start, so you'll always know what we're working towards. We'll also work together on nutrition and lifestyle habits to help you reach your goals in a way that is sustainable and enjoyable.

What’s the secret to getting the body of your dreams?

Consistency! There really are no quick fixes that last. However, there are steps you can take over time that, once they become habit, are easy (and even fun) to do. The hard part is repeating these steps long enough for them to become habit! Once they become habit, they become your lifestyle. Consistency bridges the gap between habit-building and lifestyle.

What do you love most about your job?

Being a part of someone's journey toward a healthier, more vibrant and beautiful life.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I was inspired to start my own business when I realized that I had a lot of knowledge, experience, and compassion that I was just sitting on, and there were lives that I could affect in a positive way. I finally realized that if I wanted to make a difference, I would need to start spreading what I know and love, and open up for business!

Why should our clients choose you?

Not only do we use a high quality, proven training methodology, but we also care deeply about your progress and your well-being. If you are looking for a compassionate personal trainer who can help you reach the next level and achieve more than you can even imagine is possible right now, Clandestine Strength can deliver for you.
