This is what a good personal trainer does for you. A good personal trainer creates this belief that is contagious which is that Failure is not an option. The good personal trainer truly makes you believe and buy into this because it is true. As trainers we do not want you to fail at achieving your goal because we got into this business to help people. We got into this business to make people feel a certain feeling. That feeling can range from feeling empowered, cared for, supported, or just plain old good.
The way that a good trainer prevents the failure from happening is from the get go they openly discuss not only what your fitness goals are but also what is going on in your life on an emotional level. The good trainer figures out what it is that you need and how to help create the environment for you to succeed. There is something to be said about a very strong support system. In every program that succeeds whether it is weight watchers or drug rehabilitation, there is not only a accountability system and proven know how method to get you where you want to be, but there is also a system where they break down your personal lives, emotions, desires, and goals. This creates a connection that I believe causes our motivations to go up.
Whenever we have someone who truly believes in us and that we can and will succeed, we push a little harder for that person and we find a way to give EVERYTHING that we got. This is the job of a truly amazing personal trainer because they help you feel this feeling.
The personal training industry is full of trainers who are out there to change people’s lives and I truly believe that for the most part personal trainers have their heart in the right place and if you ever have a hard time with your fitness goals or even problems that you are going through personally, my firm belief is that a good personal trainer can act as not only your trainer but your therapist as well.
