Everyone needs motivation. Personal training is about establishing a relationship, building trust, working hard and growing that relationship around client-specific goals. Creating those goals will help you develop the road map that will have you achieving success. All trainers have their own specific methods and that is why Scout has found a few inspiring local trainers and asked each, “how can you help?”
