So you’ve joined a gym. You make an effort to walk through the doors at least three days a week to work out. You might feel a little intimidated. You pick up some weights, do a few reps of what you think you should do, then get frustrated and head to the treadmill. Does this sound familiar?
The gym experience doesn’t have to be intimidating or frustrating. Just think, you can actually have fun with a well-programmed workout and finish feeling great. How can this become your gym reality? Instead of going through the motions on your own and not getting results from your time and effort, it’s best to work with a fitness coach to help guide you through the process. When you are 100% committed to your decision to achieve better health, your coach will be 100% committed to you and the success of your training regime. Your coach will be involved in each step of the learning process and be excited to move forward with you through each level of achievement.
So, you must be wondering: what’s the difference between a Personal Trainer and a fitness coach? It’s simple, A coach can be a Trainer but a trainer is not always a coach. Let me explain…
Both a trainer and a coach are able to instruct you on how to properly perform exercises. They will implement a safe and effective program that will help clients reach their goals. But a coach is more concerned with the whole person – not just the fitness of your body, but the way you think, react and operate as an individual, and the specific circumstances which brought you to fitness training in the first place. A coach will create an environment that will transform you to be the best version of yourself. A coach has a philosophy and a set of training principles which govern all workouts, recovery, and nutrition. Your coach will be with you every step of the way to hold you accountable to maintaining fitness as a way of life, not a temporary state. Your coach will challenge you to find your purpose to stretch your limits, in fitness and in life.
As a Training For Warriors coach, I am proud to say I am ALL IN! My mission is to be 100% committed to the success of your fitness goals. Are you ALL IN?!
