FAQ: From Personal Trainers

What burning questions do you have as a personal trainer? They may have been asked before!

Hear from the mentorship students and teammates at Fit Life Champions in Denver, CO!

How do you bring the energy level to each and every session, even when you don’t have tip top energy level?” Travis Denver, Co  This question took me back to my purpose immediately when asked on a recent group call we had for the mentorship program.  When I am reminding myself of my purpose in this world is to serve other personal trainers, I am instantly energized to step back into the gym to train individuals, groups, and trainers!  Secondly, I need to remember what my clients’ purposes are that brings them to the gym or online training.  If I always have their purpose in the forefront of my mind, I will show up with the energy THEY need to power through their workout!

“How do you find new clients?”  This is the number one question I am asked by personal trainers across the country.  I have found that filling multiple pipelines creates great momentum for your business in a short amount of time.  Have you ever heard the expression, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”?  If you do, your business will suffer because your clients won’t all come from the same source.  Check out this recent video Dave filmed on the very topic!

“How do I pick the right exercises for my clients?”
Your exercise selection is determined by your niche.  The best plan of action is to keep your selections low risk and high reward to keep you clients safe.
  1. According to the NSCA, the order of your workouts are as follows:
  2. Warm-up
  3. Dynamic Warm-up
  4. Hip and shoulder mobility
  5. Power before strength before accessory exerices
  6. Large multi-joint compound exercises- squats, deadlifts, step-ups, etc.
  7. Followed by alternating or combining upper and lower body multi or single joint exercises
  8. Followed by core
  9. Cool-down
I believe that each trainer has their favorite exercises to keep them working passionately with their niche so in our group mentorship program, I stick to discussing business principles vs. exercise selection.  Your certification textbooks have recommended guidelines and each of our workouts at Fit Life Champions meet the NSCA guideline for exercise programing.
“Once I get my Bio & nutrition paragraph on how I got where I am, what do I do next?”
