My PT Journey

My PT journey – School cover and broken ribs

I really enjoy covering the sessions after school Monday through Thursday. We allow the local pupils to use the gym, as long as we have Level 3 cover. The first few weeks were a gradual process of building relationships and proving to the pupils that support from a personal trainer could be beneficial to the way they train.
This past week has been an interesting one, having come off of my bike and cracked & strained some ribs in the process. Being up & about is great, but over a week later some of my movements are still compromised. So when a couple of lads asked to go through good bicep curl technique, grabbing the 12kg dumbbells was a mistake… “Actually, I’ll just demonstrate with the 3kg dumbells instead”. To their credit all of the kids have asked about my ribs over the past week and whether I’m feeling better, so clearly earning their trust, which can can help to increase their training results in months to come.
