As much as you might wish that each of your clients could be happy with you one hundred percent of the time, you know thats not the way it works. No matter what the industry, everyone has to deal with angry clients. Sometimes a clients anger is justified, but other times the reason is downright ridiculous.
Working Clients Even While Theyre at Work
Lack of time is one of the biggest excuses that people use in order to get out of exercise. It seems that everyone is so busy with work that working out is the last thing on their mind. As an NCCPT trainer, this can be frustrating. Clients hire you to help them make positive life changes and reach their fitness goals, but when it comes down to it, they cant seem to find time to make it to your sessions.
The Importance of Good Nutrition and Recognizing Poor Nutrition in Clients
As an NCCPT trainer, workouts are your life so, whether youre at the gym training clients or at the gym for yourself, it can be difficult to keep your personal and work life separate.
Featured Trainer: Kelly Terwilliger
Kelly Terwilliger grew up in a home with a gym and remembers benching as a little girl with her dads workout friends, which eventually led to high school weightlifting classes. Kelly considers her father as her biggest influence and admired his commitment to fitness and how he made his own machines for his home gym.
