Q&A

Nutrition is vital for your body and all of its systems to function properly, by having good nutrition it will help you maintain a healthy weight, reduce body fat, provide your body with energy, promote good sleep and generally make you feel better. This has been proven through many scientific studies and is now well documented. By having good nutrition it has been proven that you are less likely to develop many of the present-day diseases. a variety of different foods, and eating foods that have not been processed. This means trying natural unprocessed foods.

People should look to eat 5 portions or more of fruit and vegetables a day, to reduce the amount of processed food they eat, to ensure they drink at least 2 litres of water a day, to have a balance between the amount of carbs, fats and protein they consume, to eat oily fish weekly, to reduce the amount of table salt they have (below 6g) and to reduce the amount of sugar in their diet.



One of my favorite client exercises has nothing to do with weights or a cardio sweat session. In fact, it is more of a mental exercise—setting a goal. Most of us can throw together some mean workout routines and offer great nutrition advice, but how effective will those tools really be if our clients don’t have a goal in mind?

Although goal setting may seem simple, it is actually quite complex. After all, why do people fail at their New Year’s resolutions an average of six times? Unrealistic goals. It is easy to set our clients—and ourselves—up for failure if we are not realistic with goals. Here are four key steps for helping our clients make and stick to their goals.

1. Motivational Interviewing: Common client goals include losing weight, eating healthier and getting stronger. These are a start, but it’s worth taking some time to find out what motivates your clients. Why do they want to lose the weight, eat healthier or get stronger? What makes them feel empowered and in control? What do they enjoy eating or doing for exercise? It is a lot easier to stick to a workout regimen that includes bike riding if a person loves bike riding. And it is a lot harder to stick to a meal plan that includes salmon if the person hates fish. The bottom line: Find out what makes your clients feel great and use that to help devise the plans for achieving their goals.

2. Process vs. Outcome Goals: There are two different types of goals: process-oriented and outcome-oriented. Process-oriented goals focus on the “journey,” whereas outcome-oriented goals focus on the “finish line.” It is best to strike a balance between both types when setting goals, especially if a client is hyper-focused on the outcome goal. Consider, for example, the client who wants to lose 20 pounds. He is so focused on the scale that if it doesn’t move in a week, he wants to throw in the towel. The key here is to pair the outcome goal with a process-oriented goal. In this case, perhaps it is to eat vegetables at lunch and dinner five days a week. So even though the scale didn’t move one week, his nutrition improved. The key is to focus on the positive.

On the other side of the coin, if a client only has a process goal of working out six days a week and no end goal, she may lose motivation to continue with her process goal. This isn’t to say outcome goals are required, but they often do a great job of keeping people motivated.

3. SMART Goals: One of the most applicable tools for setting goals is applying the acronym, S.M.A.R.T. The acronym is spelled out in the table below:

SMART GOALS

S

Specific

M

Measurable

A

Action-oriented

R

Realistic

T

Time-bound

By setting smart goals, the client defines and outlines a goal. Consider the following example: A client says, “I want to get stronger.” What does “get stronger” mean? Increase his bench press, do more full-body push-ups or squat his body weight? Instead, he could make the following SMART goal: “I want to bench press my body weight for 10 repetitions within the next three months” That’s a specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic and time-bound goal.

4. Accountability

Creating accountability is probably the most important role you can play when it comes to helping your clients make and stick to their goals. It is easy to write down a goal, but following through is the hard part. That’s where your role as their trainer or health coach comes into play. A simple check-in text message, email or phone call, weekly photos or review of a food journal can really help clients stay focused and committed to their goals. Find out what works for each client. How has he or she been successful in the past? What were his or her barriers? Once the client and you determine an accountability strategy, be sure to do your part by keeping him or her accountable.

There is no secret to getting the body of you're dreams. It is all about setting realistic goals and making the decision that you want it and are willing to work for it.

The thing that I love most about my career as a personal trainer is to meet new people and listen to my members goals and desires. As they have done the hardest step and that is to seek assistance towards their goal. The most rewarding part of being a trainer is to watch those members come in the door and then achieve their goal and walk away with a smile on their face knowing that they have got the body they wanted.

The reason I choose to start up my own personal training business, was to become my own and help my members get to their goal. The thing that made the change in my career from military to personal training was that I enjoy helping people achieve their goal and from training other army's it made me pursue a career of teaching people in the fitness achieve industry and help them strive towards their goal.

Members should choose me as a trainer as i strive for my members to achieve their goal. With my ex military background and discipline I push my members out of their comfort zone and help them every step of the way.
