Goal Setting For Personal Trainers
The most important step in any endeavor, and the step that most skip right over, is defining your goal(s) for success. The dictionary definition of success isSuccess (n) The achievement of something desired, planned, or attemptedThe important question here is, “What is your definition of success”.Let’s use your a typical client as an example. They come to see you, as a personal trainer, in order to reach a goal. In this example their goal is to lose weight. OK, sounds like a goal to me….Or is it?Would you start designing a training program based on the incredibly vague goal of “wanting to lose weight”. If that’s the case you may as well run them on the treadmill for a while, put them on the scale to see that they lost 1/4 of a pound and claim it a success.Hey, they “lost weight” didn’t they?Of course you wouldn’t do that. You would ask the client a series of questions to determine a much more specific goal- How much weight do you want to lose?- By when do want to lose this weight?- What are you willing to change/sacrifice in order to reach this goal?- How much time and effort are you willing to put in to making this goal a reality?- WHY is this goal import “I work with professional athletes and help them take their performance to the next level”NOT “I hope to one day work with professional athletes”The first statement will get your mind making decisions as if you were training professional athletes now, which will lead you to make it a reality. The second statement will continually keep you in the “hoping” mode.After you have written them down, post them in an area or two where you will see them every day, and every day read them aloud to yourself with emotion and conviction. This one step, as unorthodox as it may sound, will begin to change your mindset in a way that will make you more focused and more passionate about reaching your goals than you could imagine.Here are the questions#NAME? I own the largest and most successful Sports Improvement studio in the Northeast. I oversee 12 other Sports Improvement Specialists and personally work with the elite professional and Olympic athletes with great success. I promote my business proudly and I am recognized as THE Sports Improvement Specialist in the industry.- For your business to be successful, what would it “look” like? ie My Sports Improvement Studio is a state of the art facility with the most cutting edge training equipment available. Athletes of all levels and from all sports come here knowing they will reach the goals they have set for themselves. My studio is clean, comfortable and always busy.- For you to be successful financially, what you (you’re business) need to generate? ie I earn in excess of $500,000 dollars per year in passive income which allows me to live the life I always dreamed of.- To reach this level of success, what are you willing to do? ie EVERY DAY I take steps to make my goals a reality.The last statement on your list should always be “I DESERVE to be rich and happy because I add value to other peoples’ lives”When you are reading this list aloud AT LEAST twice per day, be sure to vividly and emotionally visualize the outcome. See yourself working within your studio with elite athletes (in this example). See yourself talking with your staff. See the studio in all it’s glory. See yourself enjoying the life you always wanted.In scientific studies performed, brainwave activity was measured in Olympic athletes while they performed their specific event. They were measured while the same athlete vividly imagined performing the event. The brainwave activities were the same. Your mind can not determine the difference between reality and vivid imagination.By changing your mindset to one of success and goal achievement, the minor steps on how to get there will begin to flow to you and ideas will begin flooding your mind like never before.
