Lost In Fitness

Is the entire fitness business BS? Everything you already know is a lie. I have never got time to cover every little thing that is fallacious with the fitness industry and personal trainers, so I will have to deal with some particular examples. Before I begin it goes with out saying that there are some very good private trainers and fitness coaches on the market, and if you’re searching for a good trainer I hope you discover one.

There simply happens to be a lot of bell-ends as nicely. Full disclosure: I do not do this a lot PT anymore, I feel it doesn’t work for most people, and small group training works higher for extra people. I believe even writing a decent program and walking your shoppers by way of it and them coaching by themselves works better typically.

I work mostly for a company that is now moderately massive (I additionally work for myself as well) and it held an in-home PT conference. I took a few my trainers to it, hoping to meet some like minded trainers, exchange ideas, and hopefully be taught some new things. Boy, were we in for a surprise. There were about 20-30 folks at the conference, including a couple of trainers I do know and respect and quite just a few I’d never met before. As we entered the building, we noticed a couple of PT’s having a last minute cigarette before getting into the convention. That is what I prefer to see, PT position fashions residing the fitness dream.

One of the PTs having a fag later turned out to be a type of folks, one who has the arrogance of a much smarter individual. Later at lunch testing what a few of the PTs have been consuming was also enlightening – crisps, the usual mushy drinks crap. Bear in thoughts this was in an precise gym, the place some of them will practice shoppers, and some of them were carrying their PT polo shirts on the time.

Now if you are in the fitness trade I don’t anticipate you to be a saint, I myself have eating my very own bodyweight in cheese over the festive season and drunk enough beer to knock out a honey badger. However, more often than not I’m fairly good, and please don’t be doing these things in entrance of potential clients, individuals who will in the end pay your wages and will ask you about nutrition. We kicked off with a few of the usual stuff about gross sales, what is PT, we don’t know the best way to promote it, do you need to make extra money, hey the product is you, blah blah.

Personally I don’t buy into this concept that PT is all about the person trainers strengths, so we will not actually market it. I’d subscribe more to Alwyn Cosgrove’s idea, in a large organisation you need to a model you possibly can replicate; in any other case when your greatest PT leaves, all of your shoppers go together with them. Even the gross sales man looked dumbfounded.
