When trying to workout it can be information overload ..
What is right? What is Wrong?
How do I know if I am working to my full potential etc ..
Well here are 4 tips to know if you should hire or fire your trainer …
#1 If you lift weights your gonna get big! – Check out my blog on why lifting weights will not make you big it will actually do the opposite!
#2 There’s Only 1 way to do a movement – For example squatting research shows that there is not one “perfect” way to do a squat. There are a lot of elements that go into a squat or even a pushup. We all are built so differently and have different areas of tightness which effects the way we would teach a movement to our clients.
#3 You need to weigh a certain number for your Height – No one has the ability or right to tell you what a proper weight is. Every body is different. You were not meant to look like anyone else and your body’s proper weight is what makes you feel confident and comfortable. Stop letting a number on the scale have so much power.
#4 Anyone can do “these” workouts – Come check out my class, it’s for all levels.’ We have all heard this line, and then get to the class and have no idea what we are doing and why we are here. As a trainer for 15+ years I think the best way to start something is by “interviewing your gym” first and seeing what it is they are offering and if it is a right fit for you. Then you will know (and hopefully be coached) on what class is or is not right for you!
