I could tell you exactly what you want to hear, I could be the model example of what you want to be, or I can give you a real, raw, and refreshing take on my philosophy, reveal my flaws and share my insights on personal training.
"The skinny" There are two ways of perceiving the quantity of personal trainers that are currently in the marketplace. On one side of the coin, we are a dime a dozen. Pumped out after a weekend course with baseline anatomy, musculature, exercise and other relevant modalities and knowledge. We get to carry a title, but it should be more than a label as it holds immense value for those we serve.
On the other side of the coin, the sheer quantity of personal trainers shows me that there are many out there who want to help others achieve better in their lives. Whether it be levelling up their current Fitness regime, starting up for the first time, regaining autonomy of their health, or any combination there of, having trainers for different ages and stages of life is important.
In this day and age, society as a whole is becoming more aware of how quality of life and health are integral. We are challenging societal norms, breaking out from media portrayals of beauty, and figuring out what our normal should be, often on our own. It can be confusing, overwhelming, and we are our own worst enemy.
We all have our motivations and stories that led us to that conception stage of deciding to make a change in our lives for the better. No one story is more important than the one you hold in your heart. The definition of misery is comparing yourself to someone else, so knowing that you were worthy despite having gone through something or not going through anything at all it is key to your own success.
The trifecta of wellness...
See, it's not just being proficient in physical training, an expert in nutrition, or have a winning personality. Those are all exceptional layers and critical components to making a great trainer, but the most important factor should always surround cultivating a healthy mindset first.
Think about it, if you teach someone with a horrible outlook on themselves, who hold shame and doubt in the forefront of their mind, do you think that their results will be lasting? Do you think that once you are done training them, they will continue on their own? For some, maybe that's the case. But as I have seen over the years with myself, my friends, my peers, and my clients, generally they will not gain full autonomy without resetting and reframing their mindset.
This is not an easy task to accomplish, and even a degree in psychology cannot forcefully change how someone thinks about the world and themselves. The journey starts from within, but guidance and support and empowerment can do big things for persons psyche.
When creating Goddess Gains, I drew from my passion for fitness, for women`s equality, and for the intrinsic belief that we all deserve to feel worthy, to be enough, and to have control of our own health – mind, body and spirit. If I could form a community of likeminded individuals who uplift one another and share in this journey to wellness together – it would be worth the effort.
Goddess Gains by Genevieve is on a mission to inspire women to unlock their dormant potential, uncover intrinsic motivations and regain autonomy of total wellness through education, empowerment and cultivating a healthy mind first.
With customized fitness programs geared towards women, balanced nutrition plans derived from individual lifestyles, and continual knowledge sharing of the essentials that will help you achieve your goals – the Goddess Gains community of women can collectively awaken their inner goddesses and form lasting habits leading to a better quality of life!
Whole wellness is 3-fold and a work in progress that ships with time and goals. I don't believe in and goals, just adjustments to find the new achievement to strive for!
The new K in TRIFEKTA
It's no secret that I live and breathe a ketogenic lifestyle. It's apparent in my every day posts, in the food that I prepare and share, in the education and content I provide, and in my regular conversation.
It began organically through my own personal experience and testimony, and developed into something much bigger than myself. This conversation is only now emerging, but is been around for such a long time that it's shocking how many people aren't aware that there is a different way of treating our bodies and nutrition.
I wanted to ensure that the integrity of my business was always at the forefront of my mind. That's why for a while, I left the business of Pruvit out of the Goddess Gains modus operandi. I was more concerned about how others perceived the business model versus the intrinsic and overwhelming benefits that BHB salts provide.
Over time, my love for keto, the vast amount of people who have benefitted from the lifestyle and the products, and the demand made it clear that separating the two was no longer an option. Nor did I want it to be.
With the emergence of my VIta Mutari program, I developed a remote coaching system that allowed me to provide feedback, personal training, nutritional information, recipes, group dynamics and so much more to so many people across the world through my own app.
But it's time to take things a step further…
So now that you know my philosophy, how does this all tie together? If you've read this whole post, you're getting to the good stuff now!
My ears have been open, I've been quietly taking notes, feedback, and refocusing all my attention to give YOU what you NEED.
YOU, the clients, my friends, the awesome group who want change and a mentor to lead them!
