One thing that I very often remind trainers about is personal and professional standards.
Not only are they essential if you want to be highly regarded for your craft, but they are expected of you as a professional.
Personal training is a profession, and as such we have standards that should be followed. When you are making the commitment to work with a trainer, you are entering in to a business relationship (not many people realise this). You are expecting something from your trainer, and they are expecting something from you. If a trainer wants to become better known, they need to show evidence of their work. As such it should always be in their best interest to help you achieve your goal.
An area that very few personal trainers invest in, is personal development or psychology for themselves. In this video I explain the importance of this subject and how it relates to the relationships that you build with your clients and the results you can achieve.
