When you sit down with someone initially to discover what it is that they want, the conversation does not tend towards being able to “Squat More”, “Lift Heavier Dumbbells”. The conversation normally takes an outcome focused tone to what the person wants to gain from being a member at Studio41. They talk about the energy that they want back, the freedom to be able to play with their kids without pulling something, and in essence they want “themselves” back. If we really were able to pull back some layers, we would truly find out that for a lot of people it is about getting some confidence or self esteem back that has often been lost under kids/bills/work and life. Although busy they still have that internal picture that has been stored away of a more youthful version than the one that currently greets them in the mirror each morning.
It is important for us as Studio41 personal trainers is to understand that the interaction we have with someone (which can be as little as one session per week) is about gaining these things. So easy is it for us to concentrate on the session. You turn up – we push you – you sweat – High five, job done. For us this isn’t the job done!!
The short term endorphins released from exercise should not be underestimated, but we have to understand that we are helping someone move toward THIER goals and therefore it is about the outcome of the Studio41 experience, not the actual training session itself.
If we were to train someone and they didn’t change body shape, lose weight or gain energy I would question whether we have done our job, even though we have given them plenty of sweaty sessions.
This is why we concentrate so much on the holistic nature of the person. We work on achieving the result and often it is not just a lack of exercise, but also the inability to sleep, poor nutrition that we have to concentrate on. When we do this our results speak for them selves. We collaborate and help you create a plan for everyday and not just the ones we see you for, every client goes through a full nutrition protocol with every one of our trainers and we have great results on getting people sleeping again effectively, after all it is not about the session – it is about the results.
