"ONCE I GET IN SHAPE, THEN I CAN START THINKING ABOUT COACHING."

 

This is probably the most common reponse I receive from people who want SO badly to be a coach, but are afraid they aren't fit enough to help other people. I'm going to tell you that this couldn't be a worse idea. There is not a body fat percentage requirement to inspire other people and let them know you care about them. In fact, YOUR motivation could be exactly what they need. Being able to relate to and work alongside a coach that has the same struggles and is in the same circumstances as someone starting their journey creates a higher level of comfort and security.

 

Who wouldn't love to have someone just ONE step ahead on their journey supporting and cheering you on?

 

 

 

I have to be real. Becoming a coach also surrounds with likeminded people who are on the same journey as you. They value positivity and progress and want to not only see you succeed but are working on their own fitness themselves. Having a team of fellow coaches and their experiences, accountability and friendship is exactly what you may need to keep you laser-focused on reaching the fitness and health level you have always known you could achieve.

 

Would you be interested in becoming a coach just for the accountability?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I WON'T MAKE A GOOD COACH BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE AN INSPIRATIONAL TRANSFORMATION STORY."

 

I don't know about you, but I am not only motivated by those who have overcome a physical transformation. The people that make me want to live a better life are those who believe in me, display compassion, determination and ambition and those who don't make the "outside" the only thing that matters -- they are not JUST the incredible transformation photos that we see on social media. Here is the reality. There are 200 million obese Americans we need all the help we can get in ending the trend of obesity.

 

You've been inspired by people who have never had large amounts of weight to lose, right? Shaun T, Jillian Michaels, Chalene Johnson!

 

 

 

Your inspirational transformation story may have not been written yet. Whether you are looking to put on more muscle, improve your agility and athleticism or help your parents take off the weight that they don't think is possible, your story is NOT limited to a side-by-side mirror shot. Your story is all about OVERCOMING something and helping others do the same.

 

I know you would be an amazing coach. Is there something that you've overcome or are going through right now that you feel like you can share just one person?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I LOST WEIGHT AND GOT FIT AT THE GYM, SO ISN'T THAT CHEATING?"

 

Trainers and fitness instructors don't ONLY work with clients that have the exact same history as them. Doctors don't ONLY treat patients that have had the same medical history. If you have a heart to help people transform their bodies and their lives, you WILL be successful.

 

You were inspired to make a change on your own. That displays a ton of intrinsic motivation that could be put to use leading those who need a shoulder to lean on and hope that they can do the same. Don't limit the impact you can make because your story isn't like everyone else's. Does that make sense?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I'M A PERSONAL TRAINER AND I LIKE WORKING IN A GYM

WITH PEOPLE ONE-ON-ONE."

 

There is a huge need for personal trainers IN gyms to support clients and have that personal interaction, but what happens on all the other days that your clients cannot see you? What happens when they can't afford your sessions anymore? What happens when they see incredible success but they have family members and friends who want to get fit and cannot afford your services? What happens when they just can't PHYSICALLY get to the gym to see you because of life circumstances?

 

From the moment I became a coach, my first realization was, "This would REVOLUTIONZE the way personal trainers work."

 

Could you imagine being able to support your clients not only when you see them at the gym, but also at-home workouts, and support your clients both in the gym and their living room?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I DON'T HAVE THAT MANY FRIENDS OR FOLLOWERS ON SOCIAL MEDIA. I WON'T HAVE ANYONE TO HELP."

 

Coaching is about caring for people, building relationships and sharing your story. You probably don't have many followers because you have never had a reason to share anything of REAL value to your networks. This is something that begins to happen once you BECOME a coach. Sharing your journey, ATTRACTS people to begin following you. Being a light, accomplishing something that most people wouldn't ever try to pursue, and proving that you CAN change your life will begin the ball rolling.

 

Have you ever been interested in putting out positive messages on the internet?

 

 

 

Your goal as a coach is NOT to build a 100,000 person following, the goal is to help the people around you that NEED your help. The following and the network grows along with you. Think about it this way, if you had a million people accessible to you to invite to try workout programs and join your own fitness challenge, would you know what to do with them? Would you be able to help them?

 

It's just too much! We start one life at a time, and if that's all you help, you've literally helped change the course of someone's life -- not to mention their friends, their family, their confidence.

 

If you were able to change one person's life would it be worth it?

 

 

 

If you care about the needs and the goals of other people with a genuine heart, you will not only attract those who want your coaching, but also be able to identify the people that you cross paths with at the supermarket, in your office or in your social circle that would benefit from your motivation and support. Coaching is about starting a ripple effect, not being a social media sensation. Many coaches end up building huge followings because of how important and relevant their messages are -- but it's not where they start.

 

It sounds like you really care about helping people, and that's what matters, right?
