So I've been at this PT lark for a while now and trained all kinds of people….young, old, male, female so on and so on. There is however one thing that has made the whole process of me going from being an office dwelling desk jockey to a fully-fledged fitness professional justified...Getting people results!
Helping people achieve their goal is just the best feeling.
So what results are we talking about here?
So far, every client I have had the pleasure of working with has come to me looking for at least one of the following:
1. Improved Fitness
3. Improved Confidence
I’ve managed to achieve this with my clients by keeping to the old adage I’ve preached right from the first blog I posted on this site Keeping it simple.
See most people who have limited or no knowledge of how the body transformation process works look at the whole concept of getting fit and think… ‘that looks hard’, ‘I’m never going to be able to do that’ or ‘I just haven’t got time’
Tell me you haven’t thought the same?! Exactly!
So to get started the best thing will be to take baby steps (find exercises and healthy foods you actually like and start incorporating these into your routine) and then introduce the harder and less liked ones along the way.
Anyway, back to results!
These mean different things to different people. For instance, my speciality is Fat or Weight Loss. However, over the last year I have had clients who needed to gain weight, get toned, or just get educated on what kind of exercises they need to be doing to get to a particular level of fitness or strength.
Some even needed exercises to correct posture from years of sitting, walking and carrying bags in an unnatural position (been there!)
Each client I have trained (so far) has managed to get the result they wanted mainly by me gradually guiding them through every session, providing online support, providing educational material and also by motivating them through dark days when they wanted to give up!
In the end, they got what they wanted, by not giving up, taking on-board all the advice given and practicing everything we agreed together.
So in the last 10 months, some of my clients have the following results
Yes, results differ from person to person!
You might think everyone looking to get into Personal Training is just doing so to try and lose weight, No! What each person wants from hiring a PT is different, different reasons, different targets! Going on holiday, getting married, training for an event (marathon, obstacle course etc.)
Whatever your goals are, be it fat loss, toning, or just guidance or reassurance to confirm whether you’re heading in the right direction, why don’t you get in touch and we can come up with a plan that suits your needs.
Hi, Lou here, I'll be sharing my thoughts and insights via my blog regularly, so please stay tuned!
