You may have found a Personal Trainer that you'd like to work with or maybe even found one, but the experience you had with him/her wasn't what you expected. As a client, what should you expect
(That's a VERY good question to ask yourself BEFORE hiring a Personal Trainer to help you.)
You should expect the Personal Trainer to help you meet your goals, listen to you when you have a concern or question, correct you when it's called for and be accountable when you lose motivation somewhere along the way (Losing motivation happens along the way at times... I mean, we're human right?).
I can't speak for anyone who holds a Certification as A Personal Trainer other than myself, but my 'why' is something that all of my clients know and understand.
I started and developed Gifted Fitness for 3 reasons.
I'm good at what I do.
People need to know that they can control their health and how to do so.
I want to spend more time with my family.
How do I know that I'm good at what I do? About 18 years ago my P.E. teacher/Wrestling Coach, Mr. Morris spent a lot of his time picking me up some evenings to attend open mat wrestling being that I wasn't old enough to participate in sports yet. He even helped my family pay for me to attend Wrestling Camp one Summer. I remember him taking an hour out of his time to work with me after practice to improve my takedowns. If it wasn't for him, I probably wouldn't have set the record multiple times for the most takedowns or had the opportunity to wrestle in Australia during the Summer of 2002. I say that to say this: Today, that taught me to help people do and become better by educating them through exercise and nutrition.
Just because you've destroyed your ACL, broken a hand or even have asthma like I do, you can work around that and in most cases see improvement in certain areas. We all want to live happily and live a long life. To do so, you have to be willing to get a little uncomfortable which may require experiencing the burn while doing crunches or that 'I can barely feel my arms' bicep/tricep work out feeling.
What I do differs from a lot of other Personal Trainers and gyms. I prefer not to just create a work out program and send you on your way hoping you do well. I want to make sure you're making progress and not just wasting time and getting no where with your goals.
Here are my goals for 2017 with Gifted Fitness:
Become better at what I do and gain more clientele.
Expand my knowledge on helping people gain control of their health/life and how to do so.
Continue obtaining my certification as a Specialist in Fitness Nutrition.
Spend more time with my family.
