Discover HOW to AVOID Choosing the WRONG Personal Trainer

 

Things have been busy here at Fitness Revolution Rowlett! Good things icon smile Discover HOW to AVOID Choosing the WRONG Personal Trainer

One of the topics that has really come to our attention over the past several months is people coming to us that are currently working with the trainer but are not happy with what they are getting?

NOW… I will always help the person out on how to communicate with their trainer FIRST, sometimes what we speak and what is herd are two different things, and a personal trainer cannot fix what they do not know. So when this happens it’s just a lack of communication and when people learn this gently they are perfectly fine and continue on their way with their trainer.

BUT… There are some cases when I talk with the person and I can obviously tell they are getting the short end of the stick. Their personal trainer is not holding up THEIR end of the agreement, or there is a lack of professionalism,  a lot of cases a lack of knowledge or all of the above.

So, with all of that said I decided to actually write a FREE REPORT on HOW TO AVOID CHOOSING THE WRONG PERSONAL TRAINER.

 

You will Learn in this FREE REPORT:

- 7 Mistakes to Avoid When Choosing a Personal Trainer

- 4 Personal Trainer Rip Offs

- Step-by-step Guide on HOW to Find a GREAT Trainer in Your Area. 

 

We covered a TON of information in this report, and we held nothing back. In fact I’m pretty sure that if any personal trainer reads this they will either not their head up-and-down in approval or send me hate mail. Screw it.

There is no sales pitch in disguise with this report, this is just free information so that you can make the best decision possible when working or choosing to work with a personal trainer.

We are only here to help so if you have ANY questions just leave a comment below icon smile Discover HOW to AVOID Choosing the WRONG Personal Trainer

Are You TOO Unhealthy to Lose Fat?

Detox Pic Are You TOO Unhealthy to Lose Fat?

In short the answer is “yes” for majority of people that walk in these doors.

The body has a process, or an order of priorities, when it comes to FAT loss; not weight loss those are two different things.

Majority of people that set out to lose weight will gently start with the combination of eating less food and going to the gym a few times a week, they will see that this helps with a few pounds but it doesn’t get them the look that there are after.

It’s when they hit this point they tend to come see us, explaining to me that they are living a much healthier lifestyle eating less and working out more but the body is not wanting to get rid of the body fat

At this point I will typically do a little bit more digging to find out one what is their definition of healthy and how long they have been doing this. These two questions can generally let me have a good idea of where we need to start and maybe what is causing them to hold the weight.

When I dig into their history one of the number one things that I’m looking for is DIET history; in my opinion is one of the most important and most underused indicators on the ability the person has for fat loss. [Read more...]

Ultimate Warrior – My Reason for Weight Lifting

Changing direction a bit with this blog post

One of the biggest questions that I get from clients, friends, or just people in the industry is “what made you want to start lifting weights?”

If you asked that question to just about any other meat head out there a default answer would be Arnold in his Conan movies, but that’s not mine. Abet though that pose with him with sword over his head is still pretty damn cool, if you don’t know what I’m talking about Netflix that movie now.

15 Rookie Gym Mistakes

I’ve been in the gym since I was 15 and I’ve seen my fair share of new people come and go. A lot have always made the same mistakes starting out; I get it, we’ve all done it (me especially).

I’ve made PLENTY of mistakes, in fact that’s how I learn best, and the reason I SEEM like I don’t have a case of the dumbs is that I’ve made so many eventually I learned icon wink 15 Rookie Gym Mistakes

Below are some of COMMON newbie mistakes that I’ve seen made in the gym and quite a few I’m guilty of as well.

 
ONE. Thinking I could out train a bad diet – See video below

13 Lessons of 2013

I Prefer Sprinting 239x300 13 Lessons of 2013

1. Limit sprinting to no more than two times a week.

Sprinting has become one of my new favorite ways to really shed people down and it is virtually one of the few exercises that I have seen that can ALMOST produce VISIBLE results within days (yes, days).

So when we have clients that are looking to drop body fat to very low levels we will have them sprinting weekly.

The more we had them sprinting the more we observed taxation on the nervous system and thus further muscular development would start to stall.

The sweet spot we had found was that doing two sprint workouts a week still allowed them to get better hamstring, glute and abdominal development while shedding body fat and allow them enough time to recover for their weight sessions.

When we started approaching three times a week after a few weeks our clients were generally pretty beat up and needed a week off (not something that you want to do if you’re on a deadline). [Read more...]

Another New Years Resolution?

forever young 204x300 Another New Years Resolution?

Should you make a new years resolution to get in shape?

I’ve been torn between this for years because being in the fitness industry one of the BIGGEST new years resolutions there are is “getting in shape”.

You would think that those in the fitness industry would love this but honestly its a hit and miss; of course I love working with people that want to get their bodies better but what I don’t like is people just looking for that quick fix or making this just part of the thing you’re suppose to do every new year.

Other words a trend.

Working with a trainer is like being in a relationship, both people have to put in the work and if one person isn’t really into it then progress is minimal. [Read more...]
