Quick side note: Ben is training to do a half ironman with the TEAM! He kinda rocks!
Second Side Note: Ben's wife, Krystal, was a competitive body builder. Holy rock star couple Batman!
Now....fast forward to this week. Ben offered to have me out to his studio, as a newbie certified trainer, to kind of show me the ropes. He actually had me come out to an initial session with two new clients.
We chatted about how he got started, working for big gyms, liability insurance, initial assessments, yadda, yadda, yadda. He ran through his whole initial meeting with the girls and explained everything to me while he did it. We went through a whole initial assessment process; calculating VO2 Max, push-up test, plank screen, and a push-pull assessment. He stood be me and we chatted about what we saw and what sort of program implementation he would use based on these assessments. Talk about one on one job training! It was awesome!
I am confident in my abilities to progress someone in their level of fitness. I am confident when working with runners or people who work out on a relatively regular basis. It's working with new clients that intimidates me right now.
Spending those couple of hours with Ben helped a ton! He even offered to let me use his studio to begin training folks if I want to! How cool is that!!
THANKS BEN AND KRYSTAL!!
