Healthy & Happy.
Living on this Planet Earth and dealing with the public each and everyday in my various jobs, roles and responsibilities for nearly 30 years, I noticed we all seem to have varying degrees of experiences in our crafts.
A plethora of great days, regular, just run of the mill days, and also the days you want to forget.
Regardless of what you choose to do to pay the bills, or where you focus, maybe if you are lucky it is your absolute passion.
If this is the case, you do certainly “wear it.”—-if you care about what you do and have this as a internal value and it is a passion.
You take the day personal.
You replay your performance, where you excelled, where you came up a bit (or quite a bit) short.
Usually, you think about where you can improve.
Possibly (if you are like me) you don’t necessarily relish and enjoy the “wins,” but the losses hit like a ton of bricks.
You wear them.
When a personal training client is struggling, I take it very “personal.” My focus is, “What can I do to help get this person right?”
And this is not only a focus, but also an obsession. It consumes my days & my thoughts.
I won’t stop until I know they are good. Until I know they can trust me to find an answer.
“Healthy & Happy.”
If any of my clients are not “Healthy & Happy” I’m not doing my job.
“Healthy & Happy” is always a predominant focus.
Regardless of a clients goal, intention, or target, my job, if I’m actually doing it right by them, is first to keep them “Healthy & Happy.”
Breaking everything down, I would rather make sure they are healthy, growing stronger (both physically & emotionally), enhancing their longevity, vitality and quality of life, as opposed to some quick fix, that I know will be a short-term gain, the spiritual equivalent of a simple sugar.
It is very easy to dangle a shiny new, novel object or approach, but is this serving them the best that I can?
I believe that this job, is not only a opportunity to help deliver expertise in the realm of physical improvement, but also and more importantly a duty & obligation to promote overall improvement and personal development.
To increase confidence.
To increase determination.
To facilitate and bring out their best.
Healthy & Happy.
