Personal Training: First real client?

I got a reply from Professor Robert Jensen. I’m still in the process of writing him a reply, so I’m going to hold off publishing things just yet. Suffice to say, his answer was a bit lacking, as far as I am concerned.

Switching gears… I think I may be getting my first real personal training client. Here’s how the process works:

Somebody joins the gym. As a part of their membership, they get to have a workout with a personal trainer to see if purchasing PT sessions is something they want to consider. So, while I’m working them out and getting to know them, I have to be a bit of salesman in the process. I'm getting better at this.

Anyway, I trained a guy today and I think he’s interested in purchasing 24 sessions, which will net me about $400.00 over three months (two or so sessions/week). He’s pretty nice and I’m confident that I can help him to attain his fitness goals. He’s from France and is living in Milwaukee because he married a Milwaukee girl. When I told him that I could give him a body just like Dominique DeVellepin, he was like, “How much?” Just kidding. But he’s a nice guy and I really hope he'll purchase the sessions. The truth is, if he doesn’t, he’ll simply be a member of a gym with no idea how to use the gym to accomplish his goals. He'll pay his gym fees, but as he doesn't see progress, he'll stop coming. There are so many people like that. That is why personal training can be such a benefit, even if used for just a short period of time.
