I can’t believe he’s dead…


I can’t believe he’s dead.

29 Things I’ve Learned in my 10 Years as a Personal Trainer


This month marks 10 years that I have been training people.  I have learned, unlearned, and relearned many things it that time.  Research has added a lot to our understanding of how the body works and changed many things.  Plus I’ve grown personally.  I went from working at a club as a trainer and group exercise instructor, to managing the personal training department, to moving back home and starting my own training business.

Me in my role as new Dad!

Now as a husband and father I’ve grown even more.

It is said that to become an expert at something you need to put in 10,000 hours.

In these 10 years I have gotten my 10,000 hours of training people.  It’s been fun and I’ve come to refine my training philosophy and understanding.

It just turns out I used to be a boob.  I still have more growth and I am excited to take on another 10 years with you!
