During one of the final lectures of our college days, we were instructed, “Make sure you never teach your client too much, so they always need you and you have a steady income”. This seemed morally wrong so we’ve built our brand off of doing the exact opposite of this.
Here at myFIT, our goal is to build a program suited to your goals and the way you naturally move that you can not only perform with us, but you can replicate on your own.
When you’re done with us, you should never need a trainer, but rather train simply because you want to.
Let’s take the next and last step to your fitness journey.
+ What do you mean by "We don't teach people how to use machines and love exercise. We teach them how to use their bodies and love themselves"?
Typically people associate personal trainers with just simple "counters" who teach you some exercises and yell at you if you eat a donut...
Our focus instead is on teaching you to listen to what your body is telling you, and if you have that donut, understanding what led you to that decision and figuring out what we can do about it.
The biggest reason though is that too often (it happened to me), when we are searching for something that will make us feel a little better about ourselves, we never figure out what made us feel that way in the first place. All that happens is we remove what we blamed it on, and then feel even worse. We will always do whatever we can to make sure that you are happy, whatever form that takes.
+ Hey, my Uncle/Ex/Grandma is a trainer, what makes you guys different?
While we are excited for every person that wants to enter the fitness industry, this is and will always be our entire career, not just a part time gig. Our nights, weekends, and lives are built around setting up the right environment for our clients to receive exactly what they need to get where ever it is they want to be.
+ Does myFIT sell supplements or other products?
Absolutely not. We can not be bought by a nutrition company or any other brand. If we do endorse a supplement, we will have you buy it with your hard-earned money whereever you can get the best deal. Our job as trainers is to offer you unbiased guidance through the fog of misinformation. We can't do that with complete honesty if we have financial ties with another company.
+ What about 30/60/90 day challenges?
Again, Absolutely not. The "success stories" that these create imply that anyone that doesn't do it within that time period is a failure. Not everyone can make progress at the same rate, and unfortunately, a large amount of the ones you see on social media are fake. The truth is twisted to make that trainer look better, at the expense of your emotional well-being because you couldn't do the impossible.
We have had clients that the pounds melted off of with barely any work. We have also had clients that when they lost 5lbs it felt better than any other transformation we've had.
Don't worry, our focus is still on fast progress. But we will break down all the numbers for you to show you what is theoretically possible, and then aim for that, not a standard someone else set.
+ Well, how do you guys feel about personal trainers and the fitness industry?...
Well, to put it simply, we are disappointed in it. The entire industry is plagued by "fitness propoganda" perpetuated by someone trying to make a quick buck selling you something you don't need.
The health and fitness industry is all a lie, designed to make you feel bad about yourself, so you're endlessly pulled in.
Quite frankly, It's an abusive relationship. The things you do right are because of your trainer/program/supplement. The things that go wrong are because you didn't try hard enough, lacked the dedication. Etc.
We want to make sure that when we are done with you, you no longer have any need for us, or them.
+ Whats the definition of Murphy's Law and it's relation to my goals?
The definition is commonly stated as "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong". When it comes to your journey, you are going to:
- Get sick
- Have family come visit
- Momentarily lose motivation
- Cave in and have that desert
There will always be set backs, that doesn't make you a failure, that makes you human.
Our job is to set you up for these events so that they are just that, small speed bumps in your journey that you easily recover from.
+ What about Cole's Law?
Cole's law is finely-shredded raw cabbage with a dressing (coleslaw)
With how serious those topics were we felt there needed to be a break. Your health is a serious matter, but we are here to make sure that your journey is enjoyable. We will make sure that every workout, while it may not be your favorite thing, will leave you with a sense of pride and accomplishment. We hope you give us a chance to be a part of what leads to a happier and healthier life. Feel free to give us a call with any more questions or submit your email so we can schedule your two free sessions.
