#AskAchieve 26: How to Overcome Weight Room Intimidation, How to Put Together a Workout Program, What to Charge when Starting Out as a New Trainer!

What's up, Achievers?! We've got a great episode lined up for you today! The first topic is about how to overcome weight room intimidation. A lot of people are now understanding that strength training and lifting weights are really beneficial, but intimidation and fear of judgement are what holds them back from actually committing to hitting the gym. We discuss some strategies to help you out! We also take cover how to create your own workout program. While we could talk for a week straight on all things programming, this will give you a great starting point. Lastly, we discuss what you should charge, if anything, when you're first starting out as a new personal trainer or fitness coach. We also announce a new workshop we're holding called Fit101! This will be an in-house workshop where we take a deep dive into what we teach to our members at Achieve, and give you all the tools you need to succeed on your fitness journey. We're super excited for this because we will be running it with our whole team of coaches, and it will be the first official workshop of our own that we've put on as a gym. It's sure to be a special experience so don't miss out! We'll be posting it soon so keep a look out! Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles! ...
