Eagan Personal Training
Why choose Resistance Personal Training?
10 Years of Experience. 50% of certified personal trainers leave the industry within their first year. Not only that, but 50% of personal trainers working today have less than 5 years experience. Hire a trainer that has learned what works from working with hundreds of clients.
More than just a coach. When I first started in 2011, I felt that the phrase “personal trainer” had a negative image associated with it. Some gym-bro, in a tank top – doing bicep curls, saying “one more rep” and “eat your protein.” Admittedly there are lots of cliches in the industry. “Oh, you’re a trainer, so you get paid to workout?!” I never felt that title was appropriate for the work. You have to master form and technique. You have to be a good teacher. You have to be a good listener. You have to learn program design. And you need to learn how to work with different personalities. Let alone you need to learn how to run a book of business, and handle sales.
I thought maybe “coach” was a better title. I thought working as a manager for a large corporate gym would maybe elevate my status above lowly “personal trainer.” But here I am, coming full circle – I’ve come around to embrace it.
Because it IS personal. And it is TRAINING. A personal trainer enters into a goal with their client, and the relationship that forms when trust has been earned can be long-lasting, strength-building, and life-changing.
My Personal Training Philosophy
RESISTANCE – What does that mean to you? Strength training is using resistance to make us stronger. Could there be a better metaphor for life? When we meet resistance and backdown, we don’t change. When we back down again and again, we actually may become smaller and more sad. But when we meet the resistance – PUSH BACK and breakthrough, we change. We change ourselves and the world around us. If we learn the pattern of meeting resistance head-on and change through uncomfortable things, there really is no telling what we can become.
My job as a coach is to point you to appropriate resistance. Knowing it will make you stronger, guiding you through to the other side.
Sometimes it is HARD – but it needs to be. Some things are hard because we have to do it. Some things we have to do simply BECAUSE they are hard!
I want you to feel better. I want you to be stronger. That journey is not the same as “lose 10 pounds” or “tone up for summer.” When you discover strength in the gym, you discover strength in yourself. We can work on those other goals too, and we will – I promise.
I can help you lose weight, add muscle, and feel better about yourself. Check out what some of my clients have to say.
