Summer's nearly gone folks....just Labor Day weekend left....does that depress you? How do you feel about your fitness/health goals right now? Well, here are some sobering thoughts i want to leave you with, especially those who think they dont need help
What does a Personal Fitness Trainer do? We are not just about "sales". Everyone sells themselves...all the time, to their boss, their job/business, their future spouse or significant other....etc. But We Trainers, we are different....we are a solutions provider...not just a cheerleader. We find the right track to put you on, guide you on it, and kick your ass if neccessary to get you to stay on track and realize the reason you hired us in the first place! Why do you think most people struggling with weight/health problems NEED a personal fitness trainer? Well, here is your answer my friends......74% of the USA's population is either overweight or obese! 74%!!!!! And what's worse, we have come to "normalize" this as if its just the norm and ok....IT IS NOT OK!!!!! Our country spends 147 BILLION dollars on medical expenses for those who are suffering from diseases/conditions directly caused by being overweight/obese. Did you know that by 2015, being overweight/obese will eclipse and past right by the #1 preventable cause of death in this country - (Smoking), did ya hear that folks? Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, etc....will be the NUMBER 1 cause of PREVENTABLE deaths! All due to "sedentary lifestyle" (i.e. no exercise/bad diet) Did you also know that in the US, 79 MILLION people in 2012 are pre-diabetic, 7 million people are walking around right now that don't even know they have it yet. 10% of US popluation have diabetes...and of that 10% (95%) is TYPE 2 diabetes....which is mostly caused by...you guessed it, sedantary lifestyle with very little exercise and poor nutrition. These sick people NEED our help, guidance, empathy, support!!! So, what am i (as a fitness professional) selling? Everyday when i get up at the crack of dawn and some nights not coming home till after 9pm.....I sell HEALTH, SELF-CONFIDENCE, FITNESS, LIFESTYLE CHANGE, education, motivation, accountability (thats a big one with some of my clients), empathy, support, and above all else, SAFETY and RESULTS!!! What do you do every day?.....chew on that, my friends, and pass the word along..im not trying to preach or condemn, but to enlighten, motivate and get that fire burning under those asses that deep down truly know they need help, and are ready to say "Enough!" How about you? Everyone knows someone that needs our help....pass it on, you could save someone's life.....love you guys, Melanie
