…or maybe week? or year? or life?
The smile on her face after she completed her first session. Ok, let me explain this one for you. Lets just call her Jen.
Before Jen walked in the door she saw our ad, 95 million times. Jen was skeptical because she saw ads for 95 million other places. Jen had trained at 95 million other places. Some of them worked, back when she was 20. She is now 52.
We started off with the no charge consultation. I asked … Why are you here? What motivates you? She broke down into tears. She went into how other places injured her. Or how she was thrown into a room with 40 other people. Forced to do intense exercises and jumps on day one. How no one took the time to discuss her goals. Or help with the other 23 hours of the day. Or even correct her technique. She felt left out because everyone else in the room was 20 years old, and it was nothing more than a meat market. A fad. A financial transaction with no one taking the time to add value, to her life.
She was successful in every other area of her life, but could not figure this one out. She was ready to give up. She went after it one more time because of her kids. And because of her parents. She no longer had them. They failed to set a positive example for her, in regards to a healthy lifestyle. The failure lead to health issues that could have been prevented. The failure lead to many lost memories. The failure lead to them never being able to spend quality time with her kids, or grandkids.
She gave me 95 million reasons why she could not do it. She had 95 million failed experiments, with gyms that were a terrible fit. I convinced her to give RPT a chance with the TRIAL SESSION. I convinced her, to give herself, a shot. It was always about everyone else…her career, her kids, her husband. But she could not find time for herself.
She walked in the door on session one, nervous. I could sense it. We had a quick talk before the session. I gave her a quick preview of what to expect. I told her it was OK, and ideal, to go slower than she felt she had to. I explained the process, that it was a process. Within the group, I was with her every step of the way. When it was time to go to the first station I made eye contact and said “Don’t worry. I am not going to let you fail”
I forced her to take a few water breaks. I asked how she felt over and over again. I gave her modifications for exercises. I helped her work around previous injuries.
And then it happened. Minute 39, right before we started to stretch. I looked into her eyes again. No words needed this time. This time I saw a smile. A smile that told me she knew everything was going to be fine, this time. A smile that told me she found the perfect fit, for her. A smile that told me, why I exist.
