As a trainer, these are my core personal values:
You don’t need a gym to be fit
Fitness can be an opportunity to play, have fun & explore your interests
Anyone can bring fitness into their lives, regardless of age and abilities
It’s never too late to become active and fit
It doesn’t matter how you move your body – as long as you do
Fitness doesn’t need to be extreme to give you results
I am also committed to:
- Professionalism. If I say I’ll do something, I do it.
- Silliness and laughter. Because that makes life fun and entertaining.
- Education. I will always tell you what we’re doing, and why. You get to keep all of your workouts so you can continue to stay active between sessions. I want you to learn along the way.
- Being ethical. I’m not a pushy salesperson that tries to get you to buy something you don’t want. My approach is to listen to your needs, tell you my approach to health, and then let you decide if you feel we will make a good team.
Oh, and by the way, I’m not a drill sergeant!
I work with real, normal people, just like you. I know you are looking to better yourself, but still want to be able to walk the next day. I don’t like to push people to the extreme – I know when an exercise is challenging enough. And I will teach you, so you too will know when you can push more, or when you need to stop. Yes, your workouts will still offer you challenge (that’s how we change!), but there is a difference between a challenging workout and one that pushes you past your breaking point.
I also like to talk about other stuff than just exercise – motivation, habit change, and planning. There is a lot that goes into creating and maintaining a fitness regime that sticks.
