People have seen the results from our clients get from training at our facility. They see it in our publications; they hear it from friends or from other people. Thanks to this I have lots of people visiting me and requesting my services.
Advise from your personal trainer...
I never give advice I would not follow, and I never follow advice I don’t fully understand. One of the reasons why I am so happy and I can keep a balanced life is because I know how to spend my money. Therefore, I want people to do the same when they hire our services.
While there are many people who can pay $100 for personal training sessions, spending $400 a week, $1,600 a month for years, there are others who can maybe afford the recreation center (we are not even half as expensive as the personal trainer rate, but also maybe four times as expensive as the recreation center). Usually the first assessment with me is free because I want to find out more about our new member and if we are a good fit for them in all aspects such as the environment, our type of training, their goals and so on. I have had a few people who come to me and tell me that they can’t afford our membership, and I see a disappointed look on their face.
Maybe they think I am the only way they can lose weight.
Many people are waiting for the perfect program, for the best personal trainer, the right moment or place in their lives to start losing weight.
Although it’s true that you can hire someone who knows how to deliver faster and easier results with less frustration, it is also true that it can be done without the help of a professional. The key is action. So my advice to people who can’t afford fitness professionals is: I do understand you can’t afford us, and
I respect that. However, you don’t need the best personal trainer or program to start your fitness goals. It can help, but it is not a need. What we can do is make the trip faster and easier, but you can still get to your goals without us.
What you need is to take action any kind of action, I call it imperfect action. You can be part of our newsletter, Facebook groups, watch our videos, attend our seminars, follow other health professionals and start a plan; start walking, eating your breakfast, stop drinking added sugar drinks, start eating more veggies, cut all the processed foods, eat on schedule, but start doing something. You may want a toned body and to be in shape. You probably want to learn to lift weights and be motivated, have a program ready for you to follow, so you don’t have to worry about it. You want to know your progress every month to see that your hard work is paying off.
You may want to know what is safe for you do to if you have limitations and what can aggravate your limitation. You may want to know exactly how to eat and what to avoid, how to set your goals weekly and monthly. Yes, I do encourage you to learn all these and have a professional to help you along the way.
But if you can’t afford the professional start walking and eating as healthily as you can...
It won’t hurt you, and it will help you lose weight. In addition, you have many options to play with to be in shape and learn fitness tools:
You can hire a personal trainer to teach you a session once a month
You can buy one of those home exercise programs
You can pay group training for 1 month and learn the basics and then do it on your own
You can find a friend who knows and can teach you
There is no limitation when you really want something. As you see there are many options to choose from that you can afford and which will give you the basic knowledge. The advise from your personal trainer is that you take action on your dream and plan.
