When it comes to performance training courses, attitude is everything. A lack of self-confidence and the belief that you are not worthy of your success can have negative effects on your performance and career.
According to a recent survey conducted by the American Society of Personal Trainers, there is no greater indicator of how well a person will do than their attitude. The survey asked participants what they believe was their biggest advantage and their biggest disadvantage. The most common answers were being able to make it through a tough situation and being able to “take charge” when it was needed.
You may be wondering if this has any bearing on you, so I asked myself the same question and came up with some things to look for when selecting a personal trainer. Do they have a good education and experience, or do they lack the necessary skill set that could help you achieve your goals? How about communication and rapport building skills? These are very important aspects of a career as a personal trainer.
Some personal trainers have gone the extra mile and earned a degree and have been in the industry for years, which can be an asset to a potential client. Others just want to make it, so they don’t care where they come from or what their education has to say. They just want to make a buck.
You may want a trainer with their own unique personality traits. I know one of my friends who works with kids in daycare and has a child psychologist on staff. They are both great at what they do and they have each other’s back. When I am not working with my clients, I feel like I am still having to prove myself because I am always learning and getting better at what I do.
Having a good attitude and the ability to focus can mean the difference between making it and failing. As a personal trainer, you are in the position to help people who want to reach their goals. You may not make it to your goal, but your attitude will be one of success instead of failure.
Another thing you want to consider when looking at personal trainers is the cost. This can be determined by what type of course you want to take. You should not spend money on a class if you are not sure that you can learn or that you are unable to follow what is being taught.
You want to make sure that the program is not too difficult and make it enjoyable for you to learn. Make sure you research what other personal trainers in your area are offering and try to compare their courses to your own. It may save you time, money, and frustration in the end.
You want to make sure that the program is realistic. If you are not willing to put in the time or learn what the program covers, you will not achieve your goal.
Don’t forget that if you decide to take a course from someone you may not want to do business with. You want to make sure you have someone who understands your situation.
You want to make sure that the trainer is going to give you a good reputation with your clients. Make sure that they have references so you can check out the experience that they have had before you get started.
Lastly, you want to make sure that the person you choose has good communication with you. In the end, you want to have an honest working relationship with someone that is willing to listen to you and work with you to make you achieve your goals.
