I am not your typical trainer. It took me a while to be ok with the type of trainer I am and that I want to be. I have worked at several gyms where the trainers worked out all the time and were very conscious of what they were eating and doing. I am NOT here to say that’s the bad way to train. It’s just not the way I train. My journey to come into my own style of trainer has been a lot of ups and downs.
When we work together we are working for life not ONLY for big life events. I’m not saying you shouldn’t look good for certain events but I don’t think that should be the only reason. I want you to be able to live your best life every single day! It’s all about making small and consistent lifestyle changes.
I am the type of trainer that I want to get to know you beyond the gym. During the sessions, I want to get to know you and your family. By getting to know you it helps me to know your why. What is the driving force behind you wanting to make this lifestyle change. I follow your lead on what you want to share with me.
The other day I was at a training for my full time job. I was drinking a Pepsi, and we were getting to know each other. I told them that I have my certification in personal training and speciality in nutrition. The trainer said “but you’re drinking a Pepsi. Not judging but I’m curious.” I am actually not offended because I drink pop. I go to breweries. I eat what I want. I do all of these because I believe in moderation.
Another perfect example of things in moderation is my love for donuts. My thing is sweets. I love cupcakes, cookies, cakes, ice cream and donuts. We are doing a biggest loser challenge with our department. I came to work eating a donut before my shift. One of the managers said why are you eating that. I said because I wanted the donut. I am ok eating this donut now because I will only eat 1. If I don’t eat this donuts because I am doing a challenge and suddenly taking a lot things out of my diet. That’s exactly what my body is going to want. Then instead of eating 1 donut, I will eat a dozen. Give yourself grace. (Also a lot of people doing this challenge aren’t doing it anymore because they couldn’t maintain that lifestyle for so long.
When I train with people, I believe that you should have correct form. If you are going to work out, you should have good form. Good form is the foundation of it all. For example, deadlifts are a common exercise in workouts. There is so much that could go wrong but I want to educate you to be able to lift heavier and not get injured.
I would love to have clients forever, but that’s not my goal. My goal is to teach you what you need then you be able to do it yourself. If you want to continue training with me, I will continue to teach and educate you where you are in your fitness and lifestyle goals. I want you to be gain your own confidence and be able to go out on your own. But I will always be here for you.
