When working with clients one of the most important things to know is what do you want to achieve?
What are your goals?
“I want to earn my Pro card and compete in the Olympia.”
Many of our customers and followers are fans of the body sculpting and physique sports of NPC/IFBB Bikini and Figure competition.
After all, we have coached from day 1, the only athlete to be a champion in both the IFBB Arnold Classic and the Olympia, and now 3-peat at the Olympia Bikini title holder.
I myself set a goal to turn pro and I earned my IFBB Pro card in Fitness back in 2004.
I’ve been around the sport for a while, as well as, coaching people meet their goals.
So here’s the first thing I recommend when someone tells me they want to turn “pro”.
First, forget about turning Pro.
Now, I don’t mean abandon your goal.
Let’s focus on some short term goals first-that lead to long-term goals, such as turning Pro.
In this sport, we need to first look at getting onstage. Getting on stage for the first time is actually the start of the journey to achieving a goal such as turning Pro.
To increase the success with our customers, in preparing for a show or competition and balancing “life”, we start by only focusing on the aspects of weight training, cardio, and nutrition first. If you try to jump in head first with the other show preparations, most will become overwhelmed, stressed, and it will take the “fun” out of it.
