Alek, a Bodies By Design Personal Trainer Woodbridge Ontario, explains the difference between trainers that only teach vs. trainers that teach and coach!
Growing up I was always athletic, I always played sports. When I was six years old I played rep soccer for about six years and then I played baseball for a couple years before moving onto basketball and volleyball, and I’ve played those two sports the majority of my life. I also like to run three or four times a week when I can and got into weightlifting in my early 20s. I like to lift weights about three or four times a week as well, so I’m pretty active overall.
The program at BBD here works because it focuses on the three most important factors, which is strength training, cardio, and nutrition, and it incorporates all that. We pay close attention to our clients and make sure we’re working them hard enough, keeping them active, keeping them accountable, and giving them good sessions. I find that any client who reaches their goal is a success in my book, but I especially feel that sense of accomplishment and it’s rewarding definitely when they make a new change in terms of they set another goal, like running a marathon, or they’ve taken up a new sport or they’ve run a half-marathon – some other big achievement other than getting in shape, losing a bit of weight and toning up. I find when they make a permanent lifestyle change then that holds special meaning to them, and that’s when I find my greatest joy.
