Personal Training Education Tip: Trainers work for the circus. Coaches build better humansMy fitness training skills were pretty darn good (if I do say so myself). I was beginning to make a name for myself in the local community as an innovative, science-based functional training specialist. People knew that I made exercise fun and helped my client get fit while avoiding injury.
Despite this success and recognition, I considered myself a failure.
Don’t get me wrong, I was doing a great job on the fitness side, but felt that too many people were falling through the cracks.
The question I kept asking myself was…”Why wasn’t I able to help these people reach their other goals?”
This question forced me into some deeper reflection about what it would really take to help clients realize their potential inside and outside the gym.
After much contemplation and discussion with clients, I had a lot more clarity about the barriers they faced every day outside the gym.
