I’ve been a personal trainer/fitness coach for about 3.5 years now. I started at a small local gym my senior year of college and then post graduation, I moved to Miami to work alongside some of the best trainers in the industry before starting up my own business. I have worked with people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. Every year, I seem to fall more and more in love with what I do. Nothing like working one on one with someone who believes in you as a coach and believes that you are the one who can help them achieve their fitness/life goals. It’s an extremely rewarding career and I see myself doing this for a very very long time.
It’s been almost 1.5 years now that I’ve been running an online training business. And while there is nothing like working in person, one on one with someone, I find online training to be extremely rewarding as well. It’s been a fantastic way for me to reach and connect with women all over the world whom I may not had ever had a chance to work with had it not been for the online community. I have to admit that I was skeptical of it at first…how the hell can I actually help someone behind a keyboard? But, I’ve come to realize that social influence is a real thing and that I can truly change lives over the internet.
So now that you have some background on what I do…it’s time to dive into the point of this post.
I have found that training people in person (or in real life..however you want to put it) is what allows me to succeed as an online coach. I see so many of the same things from both worlds – those I work with in person and those who partake in my online training programs. Everything from the day to day challenges, the mindsets, the physical challenges (movement patterns, aches/pains, etc), and more. When girls online ask me questions/feedback on something, I know how to respond because it’s things I deal with with my everyday in person clients.
If I didn’t have that type of real life experience, there’s just no way I could give what I give to my online girls.
I believe that the best training programs out there are created by trainers who have experience working with people in real life. I know for a fact that the better, more experienced I get in person, the better I get online. And I will continue to do both as I am very committed to being the best I can be both in person and online!
