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!
Hello Dawn Fleer,
Don’t ask, you may find out what’s next. Anyway, change things up for the clients’ programs, if not for them, then for your own sake of boredom. Please try to remember that they are paying for our help and just may be happy where they are in their program. You could ask the clients if they need or want something different or if they are happy with the way things are now. That may help your mindset to let the client be, just to go with the flow.
