So many times I’ve had people half heartedly say to me, “I need you to train me!” or “Oh, are you a trainer, well I want to get rid of my stomach, belly fat, etc…..” the list goes on. However, I never entertain such statements because they are empty. Not that I’m so high and mighty, but because my time and skills have a value.
In this post I have outlined 5 Very Important Steps to gaining the serious attention of a professional personal trainer. These steps are as follows:
1 – Be serious about your health and fitness level and have pre set goals in mind that you desire to attain. I can’t stress this point enough. I will refuse to train you if you’re not serious about the work at hand and making progress.
2 – Approach the trainer with a sincere need for their services. Please don’t waste my time or your own with foolish uneducated banter, hence step number one, Be Serious!
3 – Tell the trainer what your goals are and be specific. Vanity is not a goal, and neither is spot reduction, that’s something you tell a cosmetic surgeon (ie. Liposuction, tummy tuck, etc). Professional Personal Trainers are not in the business of “quick fixes” true transformation requires time and hard work!
4 – Have a strong work ethic. I can give you a plan but a willingness to execute the plan, I can’t give you that, that’s on you.
5 – Have a set a deadline. Goals are the object of a person’s ambition or effort; an aim or desired result. Literally a destination or point marking the end of a race. So not only do you need a goal, you need a deadline for reaching that goal.
So with that said, I don’t ignore people’s statements like the examples above because I’m being arrogant, I’m saving space in my schedule for the people that understand my 5 Step Process!
Until next time. …#EatClean…#TrainDirty!
