New Year’s resolutions don't work. They actually make things worse. How? If you feel the need to make one, it’s probably to create a big change in your life, and that's not easy.

Supporting Your Clientele
One of the most important parts of being a personal trainer is making your clients feel comfortable with you, so you can establish trust. Your clients need to trust you with their fitness goals, and they need to feel comfortable telling you when they are struggling or have a slip up in their fitness and diet regimen.

Setting Up a Realistic Meal Plan for 7 Days
I train a variety of clients online and prefer to focus on flexible and easy-to-follow eating concepts when I talk about nutrition.
