Some people were skeptical when I told them that I was becoming a trainer. They wondered if I could yell enough. Yelling is a popular tool that is often used by fitness professionals because some people thrive when they are told to GO, GO, GOOO!!!
However, yelling isn’t for everyone. When considering training with me, many of my potential clients worried that I was going to yell at them. I can relate to these individuals because I don’t find yelling inspirational either. Luckily, there are many other tools that trainers can use to help inspire and motivate their clients.
Avoiding working with a fitness professional because you don’t want to be yelled at? If so, I urge you to reconsider. There are many fitness professionals out there who never yell and many others who won’t yell if you expressly state that it bothers you. (And please share your concerns and desires!)
Thanks for reading. I hope you have a safe and healthy week.
