“Personality doesn’t matter.” That’s what David said during one of my personal training sessions and that’s what makes him great at what he does. There’s no way but to form some sort of relationship with your personal trainer, and that relationship has an effect on your success and results. It doesn’t matter if you agree or disagree with David’s philosophy; it doesn’t matter that he is a vociferous no-holds-back type of guy; and it doesn’t matter that you might have nothing in common with him.
What does matter though is that I have faith in him and he has faith in me. He is not just interested in doing, but also teaching. It’s not just about pumping sets out, but making sure the form is right. His diverse range of exercises makes the workouts challenging. I get results because he pushes me to do more than I think I can. I know he wouldn’t ask me to do something he didn’t already know I could do. Sometimes it’s hard getting myself to the gym, but after every session, I always feel more confident and stronger.
David has such a loyal client base because he doesn’t build his client relationships out of common likes and dislikes, but out of faith in what his clients can do and pushing them to the next level.
