As a 70 year old fitness trainer, it is not just what I do, but it is who I am; health and fitness is my lifelong passion and vision. My clients and their successes are paramount, as they are my entire focal point and my life’s work.
The challenges most commonly faced by my clientele are age, body fatness and atrophy. I help to cultivate them to where their inner motivation is strong enough for them to cease their suffering and help them to understand how to prevent further suffering in the future. Their successes are my entire focal point and my life’s work.
Training is metaphor for habits and attitudes that fosters improvement in all arenas, including mental and spiritual. All of those who I train, tell me of concrete examples of how they have improved, proving my method of training, (body, mind and spirit) is truly successful. The success that they experience bleeds into all areas of their life from their home to their careers.
As a professional, my competency is determined alone by my ability to produce the desired results in my clients. My methods are unparalleled. They reflect the margins by which I am able to dominate the fitness industry. In the words of Greg Glassman, founder of CrossFit, Inc., “A trainer who lusts for popular approval is chasing mediocrity or worse.”
Committed to producing unrivaled results, I find myself in constant study and communication with a support staff of fellow trainers and individuals practicing in the Academic and Medical fields. Whether I am effective or not is determined by my client’s measured performance. Testing performance and recordkeeping lets me know whether I am being good at what I do.
The status quo of the current fitness industry using skill-less and low-skill programming delivers inferior results and makes cheerleaders of trainers. We will have none of that. Skill development is in each workout. In order to be able to teach to others, I have to understand the mechanics, cues, and techniques of complex movements and perform them myself. Other trainers outside our gym are scared off by the skill set I bring as a trainer and the skill proficiency level my clients generate.
The technical merits of my training, the scope of fitness’s impact and the fun we have contribute to a relationship with my clients that they intimately value.
My clients trust me to take them places physically they have never been and would never go alone. They trust me to break down mental fears that keep them away from their future potential and improved quality of life.
Trust: nothing you can buy or teach. It must be earned. Earning trust is untreaded ground for most fitness trainers.
