Kevin Hubble / Personal Trainer /
What does your role involve?
My role as a personal trainer involves many things. I write programs for all my clients so that when they train they can see what they are doing or have done as well as me so that i dont give my clients they same exercises or programs every time i feel variety is very important when training people. I also send my clients txt reminders so they know when they are next in and a txt to say well done at the end of every session because praise goes along way. Im continuously studying as the fitness industry is a changing industry. You also have to make sure that all ParQ’s are up to date and any contact details. If clients have body stats done then make sure they are up to date as well so that you can then change there goals and create new ones for them.
What do you love about what you do?
What I love about my job is everything it is my life and passion. I love seeing results from clients and that could range from anything such as losing weight, gaining confidence in what they do and there training. The frill is watching your clients leaving you and the session with a smile on there face and knowing that they have trained hard had fun and as hard as it may have been they have enjoyed it.
What’s the most challenging thing about your work?
The most challenging thing about my job is is making sure that every program that my clients do are different in some way and that they stay motivated through the hard times. As a trainer you also have to become a good listener because clients will tell you there problems and you have to deal with them professionally
What do you do outside of work?
Outside of work im a surfer I go away to Devon or Cornwall for wk-ends on trips and do trips abroad, surfing is my second life and its gives me time to chill and not have to worry about what is happening on the shore . My van that I have is another thing that I like doing up and spending all my money on and yes it cost me a fortune but it is a really cool van . I also ride a mountain bike and yes I train in the gym trying new things that I may want to give my clients. but surfing is my hobby. I also spend alot of time studying and learning that can take alot of my time up.
What’s your advice for someone considering a career in the fitness industry?
My advise to some one trying to get into the fitness industry would be persaviour learn from the people that have experience by watching what they do asking questions and increasing your knowledge. Your attitude to the industry has to be positive you need to be an out going person not afraid to talk to people and not afraid to take criticism because that will make you a better person/trainer. It is a hard industry ut stick at it cause the world needs to be a fitter place and needs more people like me.
