The Ultimate Fat Loss Guide — Jorden Pagel
As a new personal trainer, you’re expected to play the role of “fitness expert”. For many new trainers this is a daunting thought. How can you pretend to be an expert, while you feel you still have so much more to learn?
Here’s the good news — being the expert doesn’t require you to use sophisticated scientific lingo. It also doesn’t require you to say anything that hasn’t been said before. As a fitness expert, your job is to curate the information that your client needs in an easy-to-understand format. And most importantly — it’s your job to make it easy for them to take action.
This week’s top article by Jorden Pagel is a beautiful example of a well-crafted article that gives his clients everything they need to know, without any fluff.
