When and why did you become a trainer?

I became a trainer in 2010. It’s my passion socializing and encouraging other people and aside from that, I love working out. I found personal training as a venue to pursue my passion.

What made you choose the IFPA?

I researched and tried to locate different types of certifications. A friend of mine told me that IFPA was conducting a licensure for trainers and there I met Coach Danny Cordero who told me all about the IFPA.

What are some adjectives your clients would use to describe you?

My clients always tell me I’m a very happy and positive type of coach. One of my clients told me I’m their stress reliever. Others say I’m a strict and tough coach.

What qualities set you apart from other personal trainers? Education? Experience?

I’m a nursing graduate with 5 years experience already in the fitness industry. In just 1 year,  I became a fitness manager at Slimmers world International.

How do you keep your clients motivated?

I make sure that I’m giving them various exercises according to their goals. I also make sure my clients are always having fun and enjoying our sessions. And also giving them safe and effective exercises.

How do you envision growing your personal training business?

When I got IFPA certified, I got a really great opportunity. I’m now here at Saudi Arabia at Fitnesstime Plus which is their branch for the VIPs. I’m able to practice my passion and earn not just double, but more than triple of what I was earning in the Philippines. This has become key for me to save money. I will continue to save money for my Future to eventually open my own Personal Training Business. I also plan to take more certifications and continuing education to help expand my scope of practice so I can be the most successful in the fitness industry.

What is your best advice to someone just starting in the business?

Get IFPA certified! Enjoy what you are doing. Earning money in this industry comes from a good, quality and consistent service to your clients. You must continue to develop as a coach through continuing education. Never stop learning, because achieving our Goals in Life is a lifelong process and needs strong commitment.
