I love being a Personal Trainer because
It is my goal as a trainer to help others overcome their challenges. As someone who has conquered a lifelong battle with obesity, I understand how difficult it can be to overcome personal challenges and how crucial it is to have a support system. I love being a Personal Trainer to be that support for other people and to watch others accomplish the goals they have set for themselves.
