Streignth Training (PHASE 1) "What Is It?"
For almost 5 YEARS now, I've been fortunate to experience the benefits of having a personal trainer myself. After being unable to do physical activity for an entire year (because of a major chest procedure), in 2016 my Dad wanted to get me connected with a trainer at our local YMCA. To be honest, at first I was a little hesitant and didn't think I'd like weight lifting...and look where we are now.
My trainer Joshua Garrison has helped me not only grow physically, but mentally as well. Before having a trainer, I was weak and timid- afraid of getting outside my comfort zone. Over time, Josh helped me develop a relentless mindset that goes far beyond lifting- if I want something bad enough, I'll do whatever it takes to make it happen.
The best part about having a trainer is being able to talk about anything. Whether I'm having a rough day or need advice- he's always been there for me. Your trainer is not only your coach, but your #1 supporter. Josh has always had my back, and he's someone I aspire to be like. Now, I want to give back and help YOU.
