I have been active in my own health and fitness for over 40 years and I have been helping others increase their health and fitness for over 10 years. As a personal trainer, the question that I am asked most commonly usually starts with “how can I do this or that?” Overtime, I became better at answering these type of questions more accurately by getting a sense of “why” the person desires to do whatever they are asking me about.
From our first conversation and all subsequent conversations, I am interested in getting to know the reasons why my client want to pursue their goal. After all, for me, this is indeed the “personal” in personal training. Achieving health and fitness goals can be difficult and challenging. I endeavor to be sensitive to my clients’ challenges by remembering and being humbled by my own. I help my client overcome their challenges by making sure that they know that I am committed to their success and by reminding them of the reasons “why” they are pursuing their goal.
I get a sense of accomplishment and professional satisfaction when I help my client achieve their health and fitness goal. This is the major reasons why I became a personal trainer.
