Thank you Bill for sharing your story. I know that your clients feel your dedication every day and are so lucky to have you as a trainer.
I asked a tough question and feel like I should probably put myself on out on the line too. Growing up, my parents didn’t make very good lifestyle choices for our family and as a consequence I was very unhealthy into my twenties. I got a wake up call when I became ill and the doctor’s said basically it was my own fault. That’s when I started working out, eating a healthy diet and my outlook on life completely changed. Everybody kept asking me for tips and how did I do it so I started looking into ACE’s website and at the same time also certified in Spinning.
I know what it’s like to be down on yourself and I remember that every time I meet a new client. It’s my number one priority to make sure they succeed in their goals of lifestyle change.
My motivation to sustain this healthy lifestyle? My mom due to her past lifestyle is now at home in the hospice program with end stage COPD and lung cancer.
