You might not have known this, but before he was Mr.Universe, Mr. Olympia, the biggest action star in the world, and the Governator, Arnold was a Personal Trainer! Yeah he started out just like us, turning his passion into money – But what’s real funny is he HATED it!!! He describes the experience in this quote I found from his book. What you get is a really candid and ironic take on the job. Here’s the quote: “Managing a health club was an entirely new experience. I was supposed to be a trainer, to show people how to exercise, to devise programs which would make them lose fat and rebuild their bodies.

“DEAR HEALTH-CLUB TRAINER …” A Special New Year’s Message From Your Good Buddy Kaiser ….

Dear Health-Club Trainer, First off, Happy New Year! Hey I heard you’re still working at the gym. How’s that job going? I wanted to let you know how much I’ve been feeling for you. I know how much it sucks to put up with all the b.s. that comes with your situation over there. That’s why I felt the need to write to you. When you think about it, you have one of the hardest jobs in the world. You’ve got to work 10+ hours a day to make ends meet. And let’s be honest, your job is sales, not training. That wouldn’t be bad, but you then have to train every client you sell, which makes both jobs even harder.

This is a little off topic from Personal Training, but follow me on this … Hey did you read that book THE GAME by Neil Strauss that came out a couple of years ago? I happen to LOVE that book, and if you haven’t read it yet it’ll probably be one of the most entertaining books you EVER read. Even the ladies love it, even though it’s all about the tricks and tactics about how to crawl into their pants! The only problem with the book is that a lot of people make a huge mistake after they’ve finished it – they think the book endorses becoming a PICK-UP artist which it doesn’t. What Neil points out through the book is these PUA’s are actually big-time geeks and losers. To get interest from girls you need to have an identity and have a social life – that’s the real key.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Hope you had a healthy and happy one – my gift was getting to take a week off from writing a blog post. That was thanks to Dave Parise, because right now I’m going to re-gift the excellent post he made on the brand new Super-Trainer Forum. This post was pure magic, and I had to give it the credit it deserved. It was all about the issue of natural talent vs. the importance of mastery of something you love. The truth is very few us are born perfect (see picture on left). Everyone else, no matter who you’re talking about, had to put in a tremendous amount of effort before they reached the top of their game.
