I’ve been a personal trainer for 8 years and like many, phases of burn out happens and then you get over it and move on. I’m at the stage where I feel like clients are just going through the motions, putting in their two sessions and then going on about their normal routine. I feel as though I’m burn out on excuses and not making a difference in people. Tired of the monotony in people. I really love to teach fitness and nutrition and I love speaking on it. What career path could I go down that highlights that? What can I do to fire up the pt spark again? Thanks!
I like all of the answers. I’ve been in the so-called fitness industry for several decades and can certainly understand your feelings. In addition to the great ideas shared with you I would only add that you can’t depend on your clients’ responses to your training, eating, living guidelines, just depend on your own. Share your ideas, your guidelines, your beliefs, but do it in the spirit of what you follow. Don’t expect that your clients will necessarily agree, and don’t be disappointed if they do not. Just enjoy each day for what it brings to you as much as it brings to them.
