I agree that passion is a must. Your clients can always tell if you have it–or if you are just going through the motions. Knowledge and continuing education are important for me, personally, to be a good trainer. Patience makes me a good trainer. The ability to train a client at his or her appropriate level with proper form, and not rush progression makes me a good trainer. The ability to realize my own strengths and weaknesses as a trainer and continue to grow makes me a good trainer.
However, even more important to me is communication with my clients and my ability to connect with my clients on a personal level. I know them. I get them. I care about them.
I understand their strenghs and their weaknesses, and their lifestyle. That helps me prepare a program just for them that fits into their busy lives.
I really love every minute of helping others get fit and healthy. It makes me happy to see positive changes in health, and those changes carry over into many aspects of my clients’ lives.
being passionate about what you do is important in any profession. Taking pride in one’s job no matter what it is separates the good from the excellent. There are many clichés which are a little worn but I find them quite true, such as “You don’t have much competition on the extra mile”.
However, passion is not enough. Professionalism, education and the ability to communicate are cornerstones of any profession.
What makes me (and other trainers) good trainers is the ability to connect to a client. It also means that I may not be a good trainer for some (when our personalities and styles just don’t mesh) but the perfect trainer for others. We are not ‘good’ in a vacuum but only in relation to others.
