“ Always do more of which you’re paid for “.
I look at this as something I wish to accept as part of my lifestyle, to help build a community for doing more then the average. One of the biggest reasons for myself in the WHY I want to become one of the greatest strength and conditioning coaches.
It all comes down to making a positive difference in peoples lives, yet what i’m learning so far in my 2 year journey is that fitness is just a small part of becoming healthier and happier. As a coach I feel we play a small part in building someones lifestyle and are lucky enough to have that chance to share there journey through the goals they wish to achieve.
It took me awhile to understand how a personal trainer can make such a positive difference in someones life, without the fact of just having fitness or to just give a rep scheme for someone to work out to. Being a young Stash that’s all I ever knew for such along time and all I ever understood. As thus far I am slowly learning that there is so much more then just being an athlete.
For me the amount of people I have gotten to know at JMT, and the experiences some go through each and every day. It has become a privilege to work there knowing the amount of inspirational people there are around us, with there own story to tell; in regards to there battles to just be happy- that’s what it comes down to in my mind, in its simple form.
As a personal trainer I feel it is not just to help for fitness or nutrition but in a great way happiness… i feel is the key. Finding someone to motivate you and push you, is one of the greatest things. Helping you look for improvement, understanding there is no over night success but a matter of dedication, commitment, progress and proceeding through failure.
What we do has to be a product of our own conclusion, having someone there to guide us is just the start. There’s a lot of things that we fight through or work on, Of all honesty there is many things I find challenging and working on to better myself as a coach; with the knowledge to help others. Not just in the sense of just being physically active but also mentally.
So I leave this with you, it is something I look at as much as possible. It was given to me just the other day and now becomes something I say to myself on a regular basis. “ Forget past mistakes, forget failures, forget everything except what your going to do and do it”
