Personal Trainer Tip – How To Correct Your Client’s Error?

This Trainer Is Not Down With PCP

Be Honest and Positive

Nothing turns people off like hearing someone nag all the time, and client’s react similarly to a coach who gripes constantly. Adults need encouragement and particularly kids because they often doubt their performance ability. So look for and tell your clients what they did well.

But don’t cover up poor or incorrect form with rosy words or praise. They know all too well when they’ve made a mistake, and no cheerfully expressed cliche can undo their mistake. If you fail to acknowledge clients’ errors they will think you are a phony. Read the rest of this entry

MOTIVATION WITHOUT ACTION IS STILL CONSIDERED STANDING STILL

Whenever we are feeling down or lost we could use motivation from others to make us feel better and inspired.  However just because you feel better doesn’t mean that the problem went away.  You have to use that temporary surge of energy to act right away.  Whether it be you writing down goals, identifying steps that need to be taken, or doing what needs to be done.  You have to be productive and take action or else that motivation is wasted and you’re still standing still.

Personal Trainer Business Tips – How To Get More Clients Without Working More Hours

Train more clients without working more hours!

Personal training is an industry that most enter because they have a passion for helping others achieve their health and fitness goals. It is a profession that should be about passion for the work as much as it is about earning a living. Over time many trainers burn out from having to work too many hours or working with clients that they don’t connect with personally. This prospect can lead to the transformation of training from a passion into a job.

In the so called tough economy, an easy way to train more clients in the same amount of time in a given day is to abandon the 1 hour model. I know you are thinking, “Everyone needs to train at least an hour for results.” WRONG! Think about an average 1 hour session and how long a person actually trains. Read the rest of this entry

Are You Going To Read This, Yes Or No?

It is said that the average person will come to a decision slowly and change their mind very quickly, whereas top performers make decisions quickly and change their mind slowly.

Why do people take forever to make a decision? People will claim that they need more facts before they can decide, but this often is not the reason. You could explain all the facts and have written out clearly and they will say they need more time to “think it over.”
In reality, all decisions are based off emotions - not logic. Decisions backed by solid facts will give you more confidence (emotion) that will make it easier to decide.
The emotion that makes it difficult to make a decision is FEAR. Read the rest of this entry

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

breast cancer awareness month 2

Hey folks October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Every day should be breast cancer awareness day in my opinion. So many women have lost the battle to breast cancer. As fitness and wellness coaches we must do our part to get involved in the community on this topic.

This is also an opportunity for you to acquire new clients. Host a fitness seminar, bootcamp session, kickboxing seminar, etc to help raise awareness for breast cancer. You don’t have to do just a women only style training session either. Everyone should be involved and better informed thanks to you. You better donate a portion of your earning to the cause because that’s just plain evil.

If you are new to the business and really want to get your feet wet this is the month to get started.

Motivation – Time Waits for Nobody So You Better Catch the Hell Up

As the old saying goes “Time flies when you are having fun”, hell time flies even if you aren’t having fun.  It’s practically already October and it’s time for a self-evaluation.

Ask yourself these three questions:

1.  Am I still on track to achieving my goals? Am I ahead of time, right on target, or falling short?

2.  At any point have I deviated from my goal?  If yes, why?

3.  Have I been using my time efficiently? If not, why haven’t I?

Be honest with yourself as you answer these questions cause it’s the quickest way to seek out the problem and implement the solution.

Health & Nutrition- Guidelines For A Healthier Life

I tell people constantly that when they are making changes to their eating habits they cannot view it as dieting.  To have the mentality that the weight loss program that they are on is a diet will set them up for failure.  When people think about dieting it becomes a temporary fix instead of a healthier lifestyle change.  It can’t be seen as dieting it has to be a long-term commitment to the wellness of their body.  Embarking on this journey can be tough especially when the world is designed against them.
By that statement ‘the world is designed against them’ it means that no matter where people go they are always being advertised with unhealthy food options.  When the person is at home they are being advertised unhealthy food options through television commercials for fast food, desserts, and crazy diet fads.  When they are driving down the street there is hardly any restaurant that serves food below 450 calories/meal.

The path to a healthier lifestyle starts at home.  It starts with the food that is already in the pantry, refrigerator, and freezer.  Most of the food in there will be tossed in the trash.  It’s part of the simple ‘out of sight, out of mind’ principle if they don’t see the unhealthy food options they are less likely to crave them.  That doesn’t mean hide the unhealthy foods away from yourself it has to be thrown away.  Also throwing the unhealthy food away is a little symbolic of the person deciding to take control of their body and wanting to be better.  Once the unhealthy food is trashed it is time to start buying the ‘real’ foods that will improve their life in the long run.

less crap more food

First of all the person needs to plan out 7 to 14 healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals.  They also need to make a list of varies healthy snacks.  Healthy snacks are important to have because they are easily accessible and ready to eat.  Then they can start to make their grocery list for the ingredients needed to make those meals.  Doing it this ways makes life easier because the person is not tempted to eating something unhealthy at their house because everything at the house is healthy.  Supplement the healthy food lifestyle with physical activity and they will be well on their way to achieving optimum fitness.
