HOW YOU CAN BENEFIT FROM A PERSONAL COACH

A Personal Trainer Can Only Take You So Far

Programs offered at Lions United

PERSONAL TRAINER OR PERSONAL COACH?

Your training has gotten you this far, but now it is time for your personal coach to take you the rest of the way. I have always considered myself a personal coach rather than a personal trainer. Training and coaching both teach but only one encourages you to evolve. A good trainer is a teacher, and teachers tend to focus on one topic. With my coaching, it involves training but focuses more on overall development. Of course, I teach drills, form and technique, but I do so while considering mindset, lifestyle, diet and so much more. I will help you evolve, not only as an athlete but a better version of yourself.

YOU WILL ALWAYS GET MY BEST

Any good coach will know that “like attracts like.” That means I walk the walk in and out of the gym standing in front of you as my best self. I take my role seriously because I know that as your coach, I play a big role in inspiring you to give it your all- and that’s what it’s going to take to be successful. Personal trainers will look the part and demonstrate a positive attitude, but as a personal coach, I am often receiving coaching of my own, and I draw from that experience to be a consistent example of what is possible in mind, body and life in general. Me being a personal coach means showing up with intent- intent to encourage people of all abilities to step it up, not only at the gym but at work and home too.

PERSONAL COACHING AFFECTS YOUR LIFE

A positive outlook is a must, but a coach is also a realist. They know when it’s time to be stern and when it’s time to listen. Coaching requires a deep understanding of how every little thing affects our performance. True and lasting success requires a holistic approach and some heart-to-heart talks about lifestyle. A training program will set you up to reach specific physical goals. Coaching does this too, but it also positively affects every other area of your life and helps sustain those hard-earned results.

ABILITY TO ADAPT

You wouldn’t give a group of boxers the same fight plan. And that is why as a personal coach, I will never have you embark on a standard fitness program. Besides, that is how your training can become monotonous. Instead, my fitness plan for you will always be adaptable to meet you where you are while achieving maximum results. Being coached gives you the assurance that you are getting what you need when you need it. Expect regular updates that fit current changes in your lifestyle, abilities, goals and preferences to ensure that your body never has time to become stagnate.

INDIVIDUAL OR GROUPS

Coaching shines in group settings and individually, so there’s no need to get boxed into one or the other. Keep challenging your body in different ways and you’ll be less likely to plateau. Plus, when you work out with others who are motivated, you’ll begin building your own tribe of supportive like-minded friends to encourage you along the way. One-on-one coaching is ideal for those looking for a personal approach, but there’s a place for group coaching in everyone’s fitness plan as well.
