Personal Training – Accountability, Results, But Most Importantly LEARNING

I actually got asked the other day by a client, “Aren’t you scared your clients are going to leave you because they’ve learned how to train themselves?”

I gave the client a look and said, “Well are you going to?”

His answer was, “No.”

But my client did raise a great question, “What are you supposed to get out of personal training?”

A great workout program?

DEFINITELY!

Accountability and support?

YUP!

Results?

HECK YES!

But most importantly, you should LEARN.

You shouldn’t become more dependent training with a personal trainer – you should become more INDEPENDENT.

We are here to help. To motivate. To guide. TO TEACH.

I don’t want my clients coming back to me because they don’t know anything, because they are scared to workout on their own.

I want to empower my clients. I want them to be able to help me teach and guide the next wave of people coming into the gym.

Your personal trainer should be a teacher. They should empower you both inside and outside of the gym.

They should help you realize your own strength.

They aren’t making you successful – THEY ARE HELPING YOU MAKE YOURSELF SUCCESSFUL.

So why am I telling you this?

Because I want to encourage you to feel empowered and to ask WHY – to question and to LEARN.

Don’t feel like you have to just accept everything we say.

Ask questions!

Learning and understand why our program is the way it is can help you stay dedicated even when your results slow for a bit or life gets difficult.

Learning will make you more independent. It will make you stronger and more confident.

And if your coach doesn’t empower you to learn…If your coach doesn’t like when you question them….

Maybe they aren’t the right coach for you.

And for all you coaches out there, remember you aren’t just churning out workouts – You are empowering people.

You are TEACHING people and helping them GROW!

P.S. There are a few of you right now that I’m so proud to work with. You have learned and grown so much and inspired me in return. I’ve been so honored to be a part of your journey! XOXO

  1. I would think if you have done a good enough job as a trainer that your clients can go and succeed on their own you won’t have trouble filling that vacancy. You’ve done your job at that point. Should almost be the goal!
