Tell me about recovery time. Also, I avoid weights because I dont want to get all bulky and lose flexibility. Should I just stick to cardio and forget the lifting?

What approach delivers fitness year after year after year regardless of fashion/fitness trends?

I do, probably close to 100 pounds. I would say that your diet is the majority of what controls your weight. Your Training program is the majority of what contributes to your fitness. If weight loss is their only goal I refer them to a nutritionist.

How come I can't lose weight?

I've drastically cut back fast food, eliminated soda, started eating more turkey, reduced the amount that I eat, walk at least 1.5 miles every night and work out with weights at least 3 times per week. I recently discovered that in the 90 days between Dr's visits I have gained 2 pounds.

Mainly because they are in the business of making money and could care very little if you actually get fit.

Is it worthwhile? Probably not, if you can give me a specific example I could try to address why or why not.

What approach delivers fitness year after year after year regardless of fashion/fitness trends? Having GOALS

What is the one trait you want to see in a client? A specific GOAL

What can make you the trainer miserable when with a client? Someone who doesn't respect your time or your service, Someone who thinks your their water caddy

I don't know, because I don't have any of your information.  Sometimes genetic background or patholgy can play a part, but usually it comes down to diet. Any human who is in a calorie deficit will lose weight. But to do it healthfully it's important to have a professional assess your actual needs, and if it is hard for you to lose weight you need to STICK to it down to the gram. A handful of almonds can add hundreds of calories to your daily intake, so it's easy to see how one day you could be in a deficit and the next in a surplus. This is not condusive to losing weight steadily.

Whoa. Most timely thread ever, and thanks for starting it.

I've gone through a lot of big changes in my life over the last years, one of the most important being to completely turn my physical fitness around, lose a ton of weight and embrace the healthy lifestyle that I wish I could go back and smack my younger self for not doing 20 years ago. Over the course of this physical re-awakening, I've started to accept the fact that I have absolutely zero interest in spending the rest of my life stuck behind a computer in a dark dingy office producing bullshit that doesn't matter and I want to shift into a physically active career … So, I guess the big question is … I'm 38 years old. Am I completely deluding myself into thinking that I could get into a field like the one you're in and make a solid career out of it for the rest of my useful employment life?

OK this is a good one as I think this is widely misunderstood. I have a Liberal Arts Degree. You can currently call yourself a "Trainer" with practically nothing to back it up. It is a BIG problem IMHO.

There are different Certifying bodies out there and their rules are different for each as to when/how much continuing education you need to do. It seems nowadays that anyone who wants to make some extra money puts out a "Certification".

So for those that might be interested in getting certed or want to know if their trainer is legit, I suggest looking for a NASM, ACSM, ACE,NSCA, NSCA-CSCS as their "Base" and consider the others as "specialties"  or supplements to their basic training knowledge.

I've been working for 10 years as a Trainer or Trainer Manager, and have "certed" through ACE/APEX/NASM/USAW and I'm a EMT.

With all this being said, I have met, interviewed or worked with guys/gals that were much more specifically educated than me such as BA in sports science or exercise physiology, and they couldn't train their way out of a bag. Then others still that should be writing books on how to train, but these people are the exception NOT the rule.

When my wife and I owned our gym, we always looked for ACSM or NSCA  CPT's.  We also did a lot of work with a local cardiologist and had to have people certified with that type of recovery.  ACE/ISSA/NASM, etc. ere good...but the ACSM and NSCA were the top of the top we looked for.

We weren't too worried about what their degree was in as you won't get certified by those guys without a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology.

No, I truly believe that you can do it if you can SEE it. Now as far as being a TRAINER for the rest of your life.....It depends on what your annual income needs to be. If you include possibilities like Owning a Gym or other fitness related facility, writing fitness articles/books, talks/lectures etc. you can make a fine living.

Can you make those douchebag roid users stop screaming everytime they lift a weight?  Or better yet, point out to everyone in the gym that the dudes who look like the hulk are, in fact, using and that their penis and junk are smaller than the average man's pinky (do this especially in front of the women).  Thanks.

a Plateau can mean many things tho not just diet. Change of methods, reps, sets, exercises may be your key.

Overhead squats are a bit out of my realm for a lift, but let me ask you this, why do you think very few people do squats and deadlifts at gyms?  I sometimes feel I am taking up a bicep curl machine when I do squats because so many more people use it for that.

I think this is more in the general [and popular GD] category of "Ask someone in this field dumb questions about his field" than him trolling for Olympic athlete clients in GD.





 






Not what I meant. Guess I missunderstood his motives. If its the fact people are asking him what its like to work in a gym, and be a personal trainer, I was just stating that if he wants to give EX advice to move it.





and thanks for your moderating of me jesus without you the GD would be shit I forget the GD is the GD sometimes.



I'm here to help.  





I thought you came into the thread a little heavy, so I cracked on you.  But hey, didn't mean to ruffle your feathers; carry on.





The forums all have some cross-talk of topic.  If the mods feel this one is misfiled, I imagine they'll be on it shortly.  I'm not in it for fitness advice, but am curious about the "life of a trainer" maybe.

I love them both like they were my children  The Front, Back, and Overhead Squat as well as the Deadlift are the "Bread and Butter" of Functional Movement, and IMO anyone who is serious about exercise will get professional instruction in these lifts.



Do you teach squat as ass to grass, or thighs parallel to the floor?  And why?
