Always have a goal and a plan to achieve it. You will motivate your clients if you are also pursuing something, and telling them about it. In my experience, it makes you more real and easier to relate too. For me, it helps to plan my own workouts as if I am my own client (ie, set my own workout as an appointment during the day). Personally, I want to workout during the day, not after I am done training, because I have more energy. Everyone is different. A goal and plan is key!
