Sometimes we all just need a little support!
In my day-to-day job of being a personal trainer, I find that it is the success stories that I share that really help support the positive messages that I am trying to push upon my clients to help them achieve the results that they came to me for in the first place.
Below is a detailed account from one of our now ex-clients and I hope you enjoy this read as much as I did when I received it from the client who was happily finishing up! This is not a sell of our services but more an amazing life transformation from someone seeking some help and support.
“For the first time in my life movement has become a daily part of my life and - horror, shock, horror! - something that I now enjoy doing and miss when I forget/don’t have chance to follow through with it – and I have Brendan to thank for that.
“Since training with Brendan my weight is down in the 90 kgs for the first time in 25 years (which is HUGE considering at my biggest point one year ago I was 137kg), and I now have the tools I need to keep training, keep moving and to keep getting stronger.
“In my experience of personal trainers, they may have creativity, skills, passion, knowledge, interpersonal skills, communication skills but rarely do they have ALL of these attributes all at once, and use them in service of their clients.
“Brendan has the complete package – you have a real gem here working for you, Justin.
“Justin, I’ve already clued Brendan in on this but will also just let you know too that for now, I won’t be continuing on with my personal training sessions with Brendan.
“Ironically, it was Brendan who helped me to see this as we reviewed my balance wheel at the last session. Reviewing my omron (body composition) results from last week also helped me to realise that though I’m rather flat and overwhelmed at the moment, that I am actually doing the work because Brendan has given me the tools and knowledge I need to take care of myself.
“And I’m feeling confident that I can do this, because Brendan has shown me how and for that – I’ll always be thankful to him. All of this is to say that though I’m pulling back from regular training right now I can certainly see a time when I’ll be in contact again – if you’ll both have me back that is! lol
“Before I go Justin, I just wanted to give some feedback about Brendan ... my time with him has been life changing (and no I’m not being all flowery and slopping on the mayonnaise for no purpose here). You’d appreciate being as big as I was for most of my life, I’ve had a mostly hateful relationship with my body, seeing my body as being weak and unreliable.
“When I’ve not been able to exercise due to my mastocytosis and spinal issues, past gyms and personal trainers have laid on more of the hate and guilt ‘you don’t want it enough’, ‘you’re making excuses’ and all that horrible stuff. Brendan was different – he’s been the first trainer who took the time to get to know me, learn about my medical conditions and encouraged me to listen to my body, not fight against it.
“Training with him, I’m learning to build a positive relationship with my body and seeing it as being strong and capable – so now I want to move and take care of myself as an act of self-care. This has literally changed my life and is changing the way I see myself – apart from my new knowledge of exercises, routines, movement, my new tips and tricks I think I’m most grateful to Brendan for the new and positive way I am learning to see myself.
“And thanks to you too Justin for your continued support and encouragement to me along my journey. It’s really been helpful along the way knowing that you’ve looked in on my results from time to time and encouraging by receiving an odd text or email from you celebrating my achievements. I have most certainly and will continue to recommend Just In Time Personal Training to my family and friends,
“With greatest respect to you both”.
These words really touched me, and I really feel that sometimes we all just need to reach out for a little support and the results can be life-changing! •
