Becoming passionate about health and fitness put the rest of my life into perspective. As a coach, it has provided me a way of sharing what I have learned with others and helping get them the results they always wanted.
Or at least that’s what I first thought early on in my career. “Getting the results, you always wanted” is so over-rated. Any good coach in this industry knows that it does not happen like you see on the internet or paid advertising.
A good coach will tell you that up-front. “Results” is a determination of several factors. Body fat ratio, body composition, metabolism, etc. Not to mention, being committed towards your goals. So, when you hear or see someone telling you about their results from a fitness program that you just must try, be aware of the “end result”. Its different for everyone.
In finding my passion of helping others, I kind of caught the fitness bug early. As a Marine in the USMC, physical training was the norm and being in top shape helped with promotions along with other things. Like character traits such as integrity, honesty, dependability, decisiveness, initiative, tact, and enthusiasm to name a few. But also, leadership principles such as Know yourself and seek self-improvement, be technically and tactically proficient, seek responsibility and take responsibility for your actions, and set the example for others to follow.
When I took the plunge to start this endeavor, I had no formal education or no certifications other than knowing how to use what the Marine Corps taught and instilled in me. Now, as a coach, with the experience and training I have accumulated, I still rely on those traits and principals when I am coaching or sitting with someone in a consult. It has significantly helped me become the coach I was meant to be.
However, having this skill can be somewhat challenging due to its nature. Working with formal military personnel vice common civilians can pose a challenge. For example, in a consult with formal military, they know and understand what is at risk, they understand commitment and dedication to their goals. Vice, a common civilian, who has tried and failed several times, finally comes to realize what was always missing. For these types of clients, it’s my coaching that has made them successful in reaching their goals or even better, finding something deeper within themselves when faced with a challenge.
Having a coach in your corner is and should be a priority. I have had countless consults with ordinary people who have stressed their concerns of coming from a gym and not feeling accomplished. Telling me in their own words that something is “just missing”.
I agree. Coaching is an “art” of knowing your clients beyond a shadow of a doubt. When they are facing plateaus, being able to read them during their training session and know what to say and how to say it; at the correct time. Its complimenting them every day, building on their weakness through their strengths. Its listening their story and being able to relate and have an answer to their questions. This is what having a dedicated coach is all about.
Like many people who want to start living the “healthy lifestyle”, I too live this life and share my findings and discoveries with my clients and others who are looking for a positive change.
