As a personal trainer it is your obligation to provide your prospects and clients with the ultimate training experience that they cannot duplicate on their own. In this video we're going to break down three specific points that will allow you to create that experience and take your personal training game to the next level.
What's up everybody. I'm Mike Trotter with thefitnessboss.com hoping you take hold of those 166 hours that your clients try to undo when they're not training with you.

In today's video, we're going to talk about providing the ultimate training experience. So what does that mean. What exactly is providing the ultimate training experience and what does it consist of? We're going to focus on three different areas that you need to know.
The first area is the most vital aspect. Now this is very important. So make sure you're paying close attention when it comes to the emotional experience of the workout. It's all about how it feels. It's all about taking that underlying motivation that you found out in the Q & A. And now here's your chance to apply it in a meaningful part of the work experience. So when your client gets to the point in the session where physically they may be drained they might not feel like giving you another set giving you another rep. Here's where you take that underlying motivation and use that to push them a little bit further.
The emotional aspect will push the client further than they feel like going because believe it or not that's a huge part of why they're even here with us. That's a huge part of why they even got up off the couch and came here to train with you. So there's a lot of value in understanding the emotional aspect.
But then the next part to that is being able to apply it actively in a personal training session. The next aspect we want to focus on is the dynamic application of the workout experience. Now when your client is not with you maybe they are able to do some of the same exercises that they do when they're working out with you. But they should not be able to do them the way that they do when they're at a training session with you. What I'd like to share with my trainers is the concept is it's not just the exercise but it's how the exercise is applied which makes the workout dynamic. It's all about how you apply the movements and the exercise. And this is what keeps the workout fresh in the clients minds. One of the things that could go that for a trainer is when the client starts to feel bored in the session or they start to feel like they can do this on their own. A lot of times that's a trainer who doesn't have a plan. A lot of times that's a trader who's not properly applying the exercises in order to push the client a little bit further.
The third aspect I like to focus on is intensity. Now we're not talking intensity as far as the load we're talking about intensity as far as pushing your client the extra set the extra prep for the extra mile because we got to think about it this way guys. Most guys when they're on their own they're typically leaving way too much gas in the tank. So the experience with you has to be different not different from the standpoint of we want to apply so much intensity to the point where they can't walk away from the session and they don't come back. But it is our job to push them a little bit further than they would go on their own and then be able to know how to pull back when necessary and push further when necessary.
You see when the client walks away from the personal training experience it's to be like wow there were many moments during that session. Had I been on my own I probably would have stopped but because I was with my trainer I was able to go a little bit further. When you're applying the proper intensity this will allow you to get the heart rate increase properly. It'll get them sweating more and essentially it's going to lead to them being sore a couple of days later when you're applying this stuff the right way. This is going to get them closer to the rules so that they want personal training is about pushing them further than they would like to go. Have they been by themselves.
Now just to recap, when we're talking about the personal training experience overall. It's important that one, we understand the most in all aspects. Number two, we want to make sure we're understanding the dynamics and the application. And number three the intensity is raps the whole thing up and that will do it for today's video. We'll see in the next video.
