One of the things I am often complimented on is how I work with clients on their ‘mindset’ as I train them.

One of the missing variables in many personal trainers toolbox is how the ‘mind’ works. Over lunch, my dear friend Calina and I discussed ‘the difference that makes a difference’. We both agreed, that in any industry, people’s results magnify when they align their goals to their values. But first, one needs to uncover their values. If they have what’s called a ‘values conflict’ there can be much pain associated to reaching their goals.

We literally got to talking about values, goals, values conflicts, benefits vs. drawback of triumph and tragedy for hours and I thought to myself… we need to do a podcast

So I called up Calina to have a discussion about mindset and to offer you (my dear listener) some pearls of wisdom that you can implement today.

About Calina

I first met Calina when I was lecturing at the AIF. She was a bright-eyed student who told me she was also studying law. I thought she is either going to make one very smart personal trainer or is on a path of acquiring information to do something great with.

Calina asked me ‘what other courses would you recommend?

Me: John Demartini’s Breakthrough experience program. It will change your life!! (We’ve also had John on the show, check out previous podcasts)

Little did I know, that course dramatically changed Calina’s life…
