Why I became a personal trainer
I wanted to train movie stars and celebrities.
I wanted to become famous.
I wanted to be on TV
I wanted somebody to create a 12 week transformation program, put my name on it so I could get paid anytime somebody purchased it.
Nah, none of that (but I would be OK if it did happen).
At 58 I had a hip replacement surgery November 2009. Long story short. Recovered. Became a personal trainer. Had a quadruple bypass in March 2015. Recovered. Continue to train and coach.
One other thing of note. I have worked at several, gyms. Big corporate gyms, small gyms and those in between. The thing I always hated was the immature, childish and hurtful behaviour of some gym goers to the older or overweight members who came in to train and try and change their lives. I know from first hand how much the sniggers and laughing hurt. I was fat and I am still old.
I now am working out of a gym that does not tolerate that kind of behaviour. The founding owner (and my friend) Amanda was also very overweight when she started turning her life around. If ever you felt self conscious about going to a gym, please give us a try. You will always feel safe and accepted at C Yourself FIT.
I have read most people who become personal trainers do so because they feel passionately about being active, fit, and healthy, and want to teach others what they know. Yes that is true for me as well. However, I also became a personal trainer to show people how their lives can be better. Most of my clients want to be healthy and live a vital life. I think I deliver.
