Justin Krashefski is studying hard to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and Health Promotion at Florida Atlantic University. When he graduates, he will have a much firmer grasp of what it takes to be a successful personal trainer who can help people immensely improve their health and their life by taking their physical fitness more seriously. Here are three underrated skills he has learned are important for personal trainers so far:
- Listening. Personal trainers are only as effective as their communication skills. A huge skill set for trainers then, is listening. Justin Krashefski plans on hearing his clients out to ascertain their personal fitness goals before he starts to craft workout regimens for them to ensure they’re satisfied.
- Nutritional knowledge. Part of why listening is so important for personal trainers is because it allows them to determine any dietary shifts clients have to make to get the most out of their training. As Justin Krashefski knows, diet and nutrition are just as important as exercise in overall health. Knowing which foods will help which clients the most is a key ingredient for success for any personal trainer.
- Business savvy. Justin Krashefski plans to start his own fitness studio. In order to successfully serve as many clients as possible for as long as possible, he has to be able to think like a businessman and come up with a sound business strategy to keep his operations running.
Justin Krashefski lives and works in Boca Raton, Florida. A lifetime resident of South Florida, he knows how important physical fitness is to his community. He hopes to help everyone living in Boca Raton stay fit and healthy.
