Top 10 BIGGEST Mistakes Trainers Make

screen-shot-2012-10-23-at-10-24-14-pm

I remember when I first started working as a personal trainer in a big box gym about 10 years ago.

I was SO excited to get going and start training people because I had (and still have more than ever) a passion for fitness.

Looking back now, I feel sorry for the first clients I took on :)

Not really – but I can tell you my approach to training has changed BIG time.

One big thing that was missing in the beginning was addressing muscle imbalances.

All I used to do was stretch and strengthen. I quickly realized that that I need to do more than just that.

Here are the top 10 reasons why you should care about improving your knowledge towards muscle imbalances.

10. Causes of Most Aches and Pains

If your client reports aches and pain in their shoulder, elbow and neck, it’s probably is due to muscle imbalances.

Muscle imbalances push and pull the body out of alignment … which leads to less and greater stress of different parts of the body … which leads to the aches and pains.

9. Prevents Injuries

Plain and simple. If you’re client gets injured they don’t train with you and you lose the income.

A minor muscle pull could cause a client to take 2 weeks off of training. Let’s do the math:

2 weeks @ $75/hr @ 2 sessions a week = $300. One clients muscle pull will cost you a heck of a lot more than a copy of Muscle Imbalances Revealed.

You need to keep your clients injury-free and addressing muscle imbalances will do that.

8. Get Better Client Results

Address muscle imbalances will lead to your client getting better fitness and performance results.

Muscle imbalances are limiting the range of motion, stability and strength of your clients.

Addressing muscle imbalances will improve these three things and lead to better results when it comes to weight loss and strength. Better results = more money in your pocket

7. Speeding Up Recovery from Workouts

Being ready for the next workout is an important thing. Taking a few minutes to address muscle imbalances will help your client recover from your workouts faster.

This will allow them to get more training volume in and push harder in the their next session.

6. Faster injury Recovery

When clients do get injured, one result that happens is everything gets tight around the injury. This tightness needs to be addressed to have recovery occur faster and get your clients back training faster. it’s imperative to know how to address client injuries if you want to be successful.

5. Improves Movements

An example of this is the hips.

If you address muscle imbalances in the hips, better movement results which will lead to improved performance in the squat and lunge.

Better performance = more successful clients = more money for you.

4. Increases Energy

The body has to battle the issues of muscle imbalances.

In many ways it is like a minor injury to the body. If you get rid of those muscle imbalances, it will take that stress away from the body and allow it to conserve that energy and use if for fun.

3. Higher Level of Understanding

Being able to identify and address muscle imbalances is a higher level of understanding in fitness.

You don’t get it during your initial training because it is complicated and it is easier to teach the FITT principles. Learning the higher level of learning of muscle imbalances, opens up better understanding, greater satisfaction of knowing what to do and better results.

2. Differentiates you from Other Trainers

Most other trainers are doing what everyone else is doing and what they learned during their certification. Clients are looking for something different and trainers that have a higher level of knowledge to get them the results they want.

In this day and age personal trainers are a dime a dozen. You must set yourself apart if you want to be successful.
