Frequently Asked Fitness Questions I Field

As one can imagine, when you’ve been an a personal trainer in Austin for over 20 years, and a gym owner for over 10, there’s a lot of frequently asked fitness questions coming your way. They run the gamut from proper gym etiquette, to proper techniques, fads and fashions, to what it’s like being a personal trainer, and everything in between. I’ve debunked some myths in past blogs, and written of what it’s like to be an Austin personal trainer covering everything from client expectations, to what I really need to know to be successful, and even delved into how and why I got into this career in the first place all those years ago. This time out, I thought I’d answer a couple of the less commonly asked, but still entertaining fitness questions. Next week I will answer a couple more that pertain to the business side of things.

1)

What is it like to own a gym?

This is definitely a frequently asked fitness question that I hear a lot of. I answered this question on the website for my gym and here is the link to that essay. I will suffice it to say that it is challenging at times, due to things beyond your control, such as unreasonable patrons who thrive on disruption and drama, for example, but by enlarge, it is very satisfying to do something you love and furthermore, to do it on your own terms. The fact that it has been a success since November 12, 2007 is all the more gratifying. It also should be noted that those few and far between disruptive people I’ve encountered over the years are quickly shown the door, as life is entirely too short for such nonsense.

2)

Do you workout with all your clients?

This is a perpetuating myth, and most often one held by folks who have never stepped foot inside a real gym. The answer is no, of course not. I’m not there to workout, nor would it be possible, or even physically wise for me to workout 8 or 9 hours per day. My job requires an astute observation of the client’s movements, both throughout the range of motion in the exercises, as well as in between so as I can accurately read what imbalances are present and remedy them. If I’m lifting weights, then I’m focused on myself, and not them.

Tune in next week for a couple more frequently asked fitness questions!
