This is a topic I could go on and on about for days, but i will keep it at a few main points.

The first thing you have to realize as a Trainer or Coach is: you work for your client. It is your job to serve your client to the best of your ability at all times. You have to bring the same energy and motivation for your first client of the day as well as your last, even when you are exhausted. 

Each workout should be tailored to the client. Sure, its alot easier to write a workout on the board and have every client do the same thing, but this is NOT what great Trainers do. Each client is motivated differently, each client has different strengths, weaknesses, goals, bodytypes, etc and every workout should cater to that specifc client.

A great Trainer ALWAYS corrects the client on poor form, even if that means saying the same thing 100 times. No one likes repeating themselves constantly but thats your job, do it right! Even if your client gets unhappy w constsnt correction: thats your job!

Social Media: If you are a so called “expert Trainer” but your social media is 98% videos and pics of yourself w your shirt off flexing: FIND ANOTHER JOB! A great Trainer or Coach, makes everything about the client. Videos, pics, success stories, etc. should be 95% your clients. If you are a potential client seeking Training and you go to the “Trainers” social media page and all you see are pics of the Trainer flexing/posing: RUN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION, FAST!!

A great Trainer is meant to serve each client to the best of his/her ability at all times. If you cant do that or have a selfish mentality, dont be a Trainer! Find another career path.
