A new client recently brought her eight year son in with her during her training session. She told me before they came she had showed him pictures of 360fit and the staff on Facebook. When he saw me he said, “Mom, is he strict?”
People often think that because I’m a personal trainer, have a bald head and tattoos, I’m going to be like one of the many trainers they see on TV. You know the ones who are yelling at their clients, making them cry, belittling them, breaking them down then building them back up like the army does.
Nothing could be further from the truth at 360fit!
I have always believed in building people up and that encouraging people with positive interaction is the way to go. I literally have never yelled at a client in my life!
I feel our jobs at 360fit is to encourage and make the most supportive environment we possibly can for everyone who walks through our doors. We are always excited to see our clients, we rejoice in their successes and we support them through the hard times in their lives.
Not everyone who comes to us has a positive and supportive family and friendship base sadly. We work hard at being their cheering squad. That’s why we are a fitfam! We are there for our clients and they are they for each other.
So am I strict? Not a chance! I spend literally all day joking around and making fitness fun for our clients. All of us at 360fit love what we do and love having fun at work. Hey if it wasn’t fun it would seem like a job! 🙂
Come try a free week at 360fit or a free personal training session. I promise you you’ve never been in another gym like ours!
