To get a full and effective workout, it is important that both you and your client(s) are 100% motivated and focused in reaching the end goal. It is difficult however to maintain this attitude during every session, which is why it is important that you keep your clients’ “pumped” from beginning to end. It is also important that as a fitness professional, you go that extra mile and provide a service that goes beyond your fitness qualifications. This will not help your clients’ in achieving their goals more effectively, but it will also help in boosting your career as a personal trainer.
Here are a few handy tips from the professionals to help you maintain your clients’ fitness mentality.
- Jump straight into it. One of the main culprits of losing the motivation for a workout is convincing yourself reasons why you shouldn’t go to the gym, or go for a run outside and avoid diving straight into it. Often or not, your clients will faff around when their session begins and avoid getting started, so make sure you’re there ready and waiting for them, and get them straight into it whether it’s on the treadmill or 10 push ups. There should be no messing around when you’re about!
- The end goal. Always remind your clients’ what their end goal is and how far they’ve come. Set mini goals throughout the fitness plan, which can be quickly achieved for additional motivation.
- Train like a star. Why not put on a show and make your clients’ feel invincible? If they want to train hard and fight every obstacle on the way, then you may as well put on a show for others to see. It will help build your clients’ confidence, determination and it will be exciting.
Remember, it all bottles down to Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) for both you and your clients.
