Why I love being a personal trainer….

I get asked a lot by my clients, family and friends what I love about personal training.  The answer is never a short one as I truly LOVE and am PASSIONATE about what I do!

Let me list the many reasons why I LOVE my job (in no particular order!)…

1. I get to meet, interact with, and connect with many different clients everyday! It is so uplifting being a part of someone’s journey to a living a healthier lifestyle 🙂

2. I get to make positive changes in the lives of my clients and see their transformations over the weeks, months and years.

3. I can work as many (or as few) hours as I want, I tend to work long days (6am-7:30pm) but that is my choice because (again) I love what I do and what to help as many people as I can in a day;)

4. I work in a gym which means I have NO excuse to miss my workout…so ya another perk of being a personal trainer is staying in great shape (my clients inspire me to kick my own butt after kicking theirs!)

5. I train so many amazing people and establish very strong relationship with them.  I have become so close with many of my clients that many of them have become good friends!

6. The ability to use my knowledge, experience, and love of fitness to help enrich somebody else’s life. I’ve had so many clients tell me their favorite part of the day was our session; what a fantastic feeling!

7. I look forward to going to work everyday! Not only do I have incredible clients to train everyday but my co workers are so fun to be around. We have a blast, no matter what time of day and who is doing what…we are positive, outgoing, active people and we all share a passion for helping others become healthier, I can’t think of a more positive and fun environment? Constant laughter can be heard inside the studio on a regular basis 😉

8. I get to wear Lululemon’s and running shoes to work every day-’nuff said!

9. Seeing clients’ confidence change as their body changes, they reach their goals and they are proud of what they have accomplished! This is the most rewarding thing for me.  Sometimes it is hard to remember the shy, insecure, quiet, out of shape and depressed/unhappy person that first walked into the gym after working with someone for months or years and seeing them transform their body, mind and entire being! I can’t believe how lucky I am to play such a pivotal role in people’s lives 🙂

10.  Being inspired by my clients everyday! If it weren’t for them I wouldn’t work as hard as I do to provide them with the best service possible by keeping myself in great shape 🙂 I am firm believer in walking the walk and talking the talk! I can’t imagine working with a trainer who doesn’t practice what they preach?!

I think it is clear that I love what I do…how about you?? Are you in a rewarding career? If not, what is your dream job and what are you waiting for?

    This week was my first 2 training sessions with Leslie. I can confirm that the minute I met her I knew she loved her job. Thanks Leslie! I’m repeating myself but I’m glad I started my training with you. See you Tuesday ;).
    p.s. I’m slowly in the process of saying that I also love my job 😉 You are a great inspiration Leslie! Thanks!
