Key Point #1: Master the Mindset

A master trainer's mindset is to use people's emotions to get them to their goals and keep them excited every step of the way. These are the six key concepts to Mastering the mindset of a master trainer.

  • Motivational
  • Aspirational
  • Stern
  • Tantalizing
  • Energetic
  • Reassuring

Motivational: Make sure your clients have that fire burning to keep going.

As a master trainer, you must be the gasoline and the match; your clients must be the wood.

Aspirational: Give them a goal.

Be the stick that holds the carrot in front of the horse to make it run faster. Most clients want to lose weight or gain muscle; realistically, people just want to change to be a better version of themselves. As a master trainer, you must paint that picture for them and give your clients a way to see it.

Stern: Don't let anyone walk over you.

You are the Master. Be that. Don't let people quit, and don't let them slack off. As a master trainer, you must ensure your client's goal is met. Tough love is sometimes necessary for success.

Tantalizing: Show your clients goals they never thought they could reach.

Perform a one-arm push-up in front of them or do a backflip. Show them your athleticism. You must wow your clients and show them what you can do to motivate them to do things they never thought they could do.

Energetic: Stay pumped!

The client needs to feel good in a session with you. Let your energy spread to them.

Reassuring: Ensure that your client can get to their goals.

You are their guide. Sometimes they may be unable to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and it's your job to show them the way.
