The Side Hustle of Personal Training: Walking the Talk

In an overcrowded world filled with side hustles, where passions meet paychecks, one gig stands out for its transformative potential: personal training. As a person who values fitness, and I’ve always been “training” myself, I’ve come to appreciate not only the physical gains but also the profound impact it has on both clients and trainers alike. I must say though and I am stating the obvious, to the question you’re embarrassed to ask – do personal trainers need to look fit? The answer is yes, and here’s why.

There’s more to being a great personal trainer than just physical appearance, embodying a healthy lifestyle is undeniably part of the job description. Clients seek inspiration, motivation, and expertise from someone who not only talks the talk but also walks the walk. Being fit isn’t about adhering to a specific body type or look. It’s about demonstrating commitment, discipline, and authenticity. I am a living testament to those principles and I am not a personal trainer. Yet, I prioritize my own health and wellness, not just for vanity’s sake, but for health purposes and importantly to lead by example and inspire others to do the same.

It is the same principle I bring to my consulting practice. Hence maintaining peak physical condition isn’t always easy, it is the same challenges as it is in running your business, especially with the demands of a side hustle, your day job and life in general. It takes dedication, consistency, and a willingness to prioritize self-care amidst the hustle and bustle.

Balance is key. In our consultancy, we encourage our clients to strike a balance for their business and to make changes that work for them, rather than chasing quick fixes or unrealistic ideals. We sell the philosophy that started our own journey, “striving for progress over perfection and embracing the ebbs and flows of the entrepreneurial journey”.

So, as we all want our personal trainers to look fit, embody health, authenticity, and a genuine passion for helping others achieve their goals. It is what DMConsultants does, that is how we have managed to remain where the true magic happens.
