We've talked about what a great trainer can do for you and how you can start getting a feel for a trainer's worth. You need to take a few minutes and examine yourself and your own motivations for wanting to hire a trainer. There are many reasons to hire us. None are right or wrong, but they are all very personal.
There are some who just want to be walked through every step without needing to ever worry about any of it. They have absolutely no desire to do it for themselves, ever. That's fine! They take their health very seriously, and would rather hire a professional. We have clients who have been with us for over 20 years. They have NO clue want we do or how we get it done, all they know is that it works!
Some people loved to be pushed hard, but can't do it for themselves. With these clients we spend more time reigning them in than trying to motivate them. The key is to challenge them differently each session WITHOUT punishing them.
Others want to learn to do it for themselves.They come to us to learn techniques, protocols, and methods so that they can train on their own once the relationship with us is over.
Finally, some want a ongoing mentor. They are able to motivate themselves and work on their own, but enjoy having someone to nudge them in the right direction when needed.
As professional trainers, the most rewarding situations for us are the long term relationships that allow for truly significant transformations on many levels for both the coach and the student. The point is you need to figure out why you want to work with a trainer in the first place. In the end, what you really want from us is the results which we have delivered for over 20years and counting.
