Life As A Master Trainer: What I Have Learned So Far

Life as a Master Trainer

I’ve always had an interest in instructing and mentoring.  I was deeply invested in being a Cheer and Dance team coach.  I lived for the big concert moments as a teacher, watching my students play their instruments with pride and joy.  I love teaching fitness classes.  And as a Master Trainer, I am now combining all those little worlds into something bigger than I had ever even imagined.

The homework.  The planning.  The preparation.  The networking.  The outreach.  The partnerships.  The agreements.  The marketing.  The branding.  The conference calls.  The hours of work at night after an already 8 hour day in my career and two fitness classes under the belt.  There are sacrifices.  There are hours of missed sleeps.

But, with all of that comes accomplishment.  There is reward.  There is fulfillment.  There is a sense of self.  There is pride.  There is opportunity.   There is passion.  There is pure joy.  There is nothing I want to do more.

It means helping teach the importance of community and family in a Group X classroom and how to create it.

Truly create it.

Being a Master Trainer is more then just certifying instructors.  It’s days and hours of heart and soul. It’s walking into an 8 hour certification as strangers and leaving as a family.  It’s taking all of their fears, doubts and nerves and changing them to goals, accomplishments and excitement.  Each certification I learn more about myself.  I become more self-aware.  I reflect for hours and days following a certification on how I can make the next one even better then the last.  On how I can help these individuals who have just put all of their trust into little ol’ me to help make THEM the best they can be before they go out to the world and instruct their own classes.

Being a Master Trainer is far more then I ever imagined.

And to just think…

this is just the beginning.
