Don’t worry, Liberals, this is not a Libertarian-slanted, Conservative rant about what Obama said about small business owners as I have been known to do. Nope, no politics today! (or at least this morning) I am talking about giving yourself credit, NOT your trainer/nutritionist/massage therapist/pimp. Let me explain why I feel I need to address this while trying not to get off track speaking about metaphorical unicorns and 7’ tall strippers….
I don’t publicize who I still work with (as a trainer), but let’s just say I work with a WNBF World Champion, some other high level competitors and a few friends. I don’t charge them since I enjoy doing it. Last night, I went to look over a family friend who is getting ready for a show this weekend. POW! Her back in IN, ass is in figure form, legs are shapely, and stomach is flat. The main thing is the back—that WINS figure shows. I was about to do a backflip since I was so proud of HER.
I showed her how to better flare her back and POW, striations and pure awesomeness. She later thanked me for what I did. This is where I kind of stood up. I have talked to Layne Norton…oops, DOCTOR Layne Norton about this on many occasions. Nothing is worse that a prep coach PIMPING out their clients and taking credit. I was polite and said it was her doing, I just helped, but I need to rant on this a bit.
Look, I didn’t do shit. I adjusted calories, read her body based on pics and measurements, and coached her with training and cardio. SHE is the one who was at the gym at 4:30am daily for hardcore training and cardio and then BACK FOR MORE sometimes later in the day. SHE is the one who ate boring ass chicken and fish with vegetables for most meals. She is the one who ate so many green veggies that she could clear a room with her gas. SHE is the one who practices walking in clear heels without getting dollar bills placed in her bottoms. And speaking of bottoms, SHE is the one who paid for a blingy-ass, overpriced figure suit!
So if you have a trainer who uses you as their main marketing vehicle, stop and realize if that dipshit takes credit for what YOU did, find a new trainer. Because as we say at TigerFitness.com, “Nothing Works Unless You Do!”
