Why did you go into Personal Training?
My passion for Personal Training came from my personal experience as a beginner at the gym. When my own trainer helped me understand the vast benefits of exercise, and helped me lose excess weight that was contributing to low back pain and hindering my daily life. My trainer was compassionate and empowered me to achieve goals I didn’t think were possible for me. I was inspired to become a Personal Trainer from that point on because I want others to feel that sense of accomplishment too, no matter their goal. Whether the goal is to summit peaks in Nepal or to be able to do their first pull-up, if it’s important to the client, then it’s important to me.
