What drew you to the fitness/training field?
Right Fit has been home to me since I was a sophomore in high school and been a part of my family since my mom opened its doors in 2004. I have been a client, counselor, intern, front desk person, trainer, manager, and every other hat you could wear with Right Fit since day one, allowing me to develop a passion for this industry and coaching others. It also helped to have a mother who made her four boys do plank holds, push-ups, and ladder drills before going to school every day.
What is the most fulfilling part of your job?
Seeing the smiles, fist bumps, peer coaching, and teamwork during sessions, and the limits overcome and energy that follows post-class. Since starting, and no matter what my role with Right Fit, one thing has never changed (maybe it is the older brother in me)……….I love coaching, and whether it is working with peers or clients, I love a new challenge and finding ways to overcome it.
How do you motivate someone during a workout?
In my life, my favorites coaches were the ones that saw my true potential and found ways to get more out of me than I ever thought possible. My job as a trainer and coach is to see the long-term vision and goal, create the plan to get there efficiently, and make sure that on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis, we are continuing to progress through new feats and individual accomplishments.
What are some qualities of your personal ideal client?
There are three primary qualities that I always look for in a client to determine the likelihood of success in their training and overall wellness. Committed – to yourself, to the plan, and to your knowledge and education – if my client trusts the plan and furthers their knowledge each session, there are no limits to where they can take their fitness.
Coachable – I will always push limits and strive for perfection, because it is my job to make you better and smarter than you were prior to starting that session. Patient – trust the process, again, beware of the new “best” workout and “diet fad” – often unsustainable – training and fitness enhancement is a journey……. trust the process.
What is one client success story you will always remember?
I will always remember every member of our 2014 state championship football team, but especially the offensive line, the work they put in during the off-season, pre-season, and in-season, and watching it all come together as the perfect season – 14-0, ESCC Champions, and 6A State Champions.
