Training Philosophy or Slogan
The primary reason I decided to become a personal trainer is:
I first became interested in fitness when:
One of the primary reasons I am so passionate about fitness is:
My approach to training people is different because:
I feel the most important aspect of fitness is:
I began working with Greg who was a gym novice. He had never been especially active and although he was not grossly overweight, he lacked muscle and general fitness. Greg has now put on a tremendous amount of muscle and looks like he's been a gym regular his whole life. Although exercises had previously been a foreign thing to him, by showing him enjoyable exercises and giving him measurable results, exercise is now engrained in his life.
After training his 17 year old son for the United States Naval Academy, Tom began training with me. Tom had become very overweight due to a career that kept him very sedentary. One of his biggest challenges because of his weight was being able to do a pull-up. As he dropped his weight we continued to practice it until one weekend while his son was home on holiday, we surprised his son with two full pull-ups. I was very proud of him for the feat of strength and his follow through in loosing weight.
One of the things I like to focus on with my client's is the development of balance. One of my client's in particular is very interested in it because she has osteoporosis and is scared of the dangers of a fall. While she was in New York one year she slipped off an icy curb and although she thought she was most assuredly going down she regained her footing almost automatically. She told me our training had been the difference that helped her avoid injury.
