As a trainer for the past 8 years I have come across many different types of clients.  They range from age, size, occupation, and the list goes on.  There is no way that I could have been successful as a trainer if I treated each client exactly the same with putting them through the same workouts and the same diet.  Every single person is different and I have had to approach each client differently.  As an individual you have to approach training with the realization that you have to find what works for you.  I say that in the sense that you have to find what really is motivating you to change.  You need a clear vision in your mind of what you want to look like.  Once you have the vision you have to take the proper steps of getting to that goal. 

        I can also say that anyone who puts 100% of their efforts in can and will change their body.   Bodybuilders and trainers don’t just happen upon a 7-8% body fat and even lower during competitions.  There is a complete science behind how to lose body fat and do it in a healthy way so you won’t just gain it right back.   There are so many new fads and training techniques coming out, but really what most people don’t realize is a majority of the time you are working the same muscles the same way with a different piece of equipment.  My life motto has always been to work smarter not harder and the same goes for in the gym.   With proper training, proper eating, proper goal setting, and positive attitude you can really change your body. In 3 months you can see changes, really transform in 6 months, and be a whole new person in 12 months.
         When you think about 6 months to 12 months it may seem like a long time but come on people, you are changing your life here!!!  The new issue that has seemed to rise is people watch these shows like the biggest loser and expect to lose 15 lbs a week. That is possible if you have a team of people making you workout 6 hours a day, telling you exactly what to eat, with doctors standing by.  Remember in the real world a healthy fat loss is 1-2 lbs a week.  Anymore and chances are you are losing water weight and even worse, muscle.   Having a trainer helps and having a gym memberships helps as well, but if you can’t afford either all you need is a set of dumbbells and a resistance band and you can be well on your way.  Excuses and self doubt only hold you back.  GET IT GOING!!
