Let’s be honest, we’ve all been there. We pay money for a service and expect whomever we are paying the money to, to provide top notch service and results. With most services, this is true and accurate. For instance, I paid a good amount of money to have my car detailed after years of neglect. It took some time, even a few visits to the detailer, but eventually my car looked amazing and I didn’t have to do anything except for show up. When it comes to performance training for athletes and personal training for gen-fit, showing up is only the first step. It’s not as easy as simply showing up, handing your body off to your coach or trainer and expecting to become an elite athlete or become amazingly fit. You, as a client, also have to put in work!! Below I’ve listed 5 simple steps to take after showing up.
1.) Have a good attitude – Attitude will have an effect on everything!! Basically all of the remaining steps will be more effective if you display a positive attitude. More importantly, you will have more fun training, your coach or trainer will have more fun training you, and you in turn will want to show up more often and go the extra mile to achieve your training goals!
