We live in a time where physical activity is not a part of our daily lives anymore. Physical activity is now a choice that people must actively choose to make. With 1/3rd of the US population being obese these choices are not being made often enough. Humans tend to take the easier, less stressful path. Finding the time, desire, and motivation to exercise can be very difficult for many. This is where personal trainers fit in the health and wellness model. People hire a personal trainer for many different reasons, they want to lose weight, their doctor recommended they exercise, or just to improve their fitness. The client’s fitness/health goals are sometimes not very specific. It is up to the Trainer to interview the client and help them set realistic and measurable goals. These goals should be tied into a deep meaning for the client. Sure they may want to lose 20 pounds, but the client’s “Why” must be identified. After a bit of digging the client may open up and say how losing the weight will help her get back to a healthy weight and will give her more energy to enjoy time with her kids. Once this “why” is found the trainer can better motivate the client and keep them on track during their program.

During the interview process the Trainer must identify what road blocks the client has and create a program to work around these blocks. Common barriers are: not enough time, not enough energy, lack of exercise knowledge, and not seeing results when they did exercise. Many of these barriers can be overcome with the right intervention from one of 4 Seasons’ Nationally certified personal trainers. Let’s take lack of time and accountability for example. Having a set schedule of when a client meets with a trainer will keep them coming in on a regular basis, and the trainer will hold the client accountable to their previously set goals. It is hard to find the motivation to get to the gym after a long and stressful day at work. Having that appointment with the trainer will lower the likelihood of them not coming in and ultimately help members reach levels of fitness they never thought previously attainable!
