Interestingly, I was asked this question by one of my trainees. I don't know how to answer, becuase I never rank my trainees.
His point is that the ranking can motivate him to be better.
Are you serious? No. I don't like to treat my clients like this way. If anyone has a gut, he/ she should go to the stage; then you will know what’s your ranking at that moment.
Here are my answers.
Everyone is different. I can tell you one thing -
I count my trainees’ attitude.
Attitude is everything! Period.
As a coach, my job is to improve my trainees’ weakness to be their Strength.
My trainees don’t have the ranking. They only have progression. Some of them start from the beginning level, but I don’t care. This is my job to lift them up. They train so hard to improve themselves. They got credit.
I believe that 90% of my trainees know what they want and give 100% in each session.
10% of them will quit the training because they cannot afford the time and effort.
Here are FIVE tips to be a “Cleaner”:
- Listen & take actions
- Bring your squat shoes with you when you’re traveling
- Never give an excuse
- Perform better than coach's expectation
- No pissing, No moaning (from Strength Sensei)
