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.

Professional Personal Trainer

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!



My yoga mat is not only my teacher, she’s my friend! Supporting me as I learn and catching me when I fall! For many years, my relationship with Adho Mukha Svanasana, or downward facing dog posture has been a rocky one. Tight hamstrings, shoulder frustrations, and then some. To hold this posture for 5 breaths in practice or until the teacher stopped talking in a class was an uncomfortable mental and physical battle for me! I’ve grown to get along with my downward facing dog asana, since beginning my yoga teacher training this past January and today in my personal practice we even played a little game! I MADE THAT DAMN DOG FLIP! LOL! And it felt so liberating! He’s my new best yogi friend now! đŸ˜‰
