(0:45): What was it like working with Dr. Brandon Mancuso?
(4:07): What would you say to prospective clients looking to train at TrainSMART?
I would say the biggest thing that attracted me to TrainSMART initially was how intensely their team values the well-being of their clients. Believe it or not, in my experience, it’s not super common for gyms and wellness centers or fitness studios to put the health and well-being of their clients or their members first. So, being able to work in an environment that prioritizes those things were super important to me, and it ended up changing my perspective on health and fitness a lot over the several months that I was there.
So, working with Dr. Brandon was pretty special, because it gave my training far more educational background than it probably would have gotten elsewhere. Being able to work side by side with somebody who has a chiropractic background is something you won’t get anywhere else in this field. So I definitely took advantage of that as much as possible. It assured me, and I’m sure the rest of our team too, that we were allowing our clients to reach their goals in the safest, healthiest, and most efficient way possible, just having had such a strong background in biomechanics and in functional movement, anatomy, physiology, etc. Working with Dr. Brandon had a profound effect on my growth as a trainer over the last several months.
The best way I would describe the culture at TrainSMART and the kind of characteristics that carried all the way from when I started as an intern and when I ended as a trainer would be that it is what you make it. The culture is what you make it. If you’re a client and you’re looking to come in everyday, breaking down all the walls to meet the goals that you set in place for yourself, we can definitely give you that opportunity. But if you’re somebody who’s kind of just looking for a way to give yourself a healthier, happier life, we can definitely offer you that as well. I would say that the space is just a casual, free flowing environment that, you know, there’s something for everybody there, and I think that is what makes TrainSMART’s culture so special.
All of my clients at TrainSMART were the most incredible people, hands down. Everybody taught me something new about myself or gave me a new perspective on the world. Everybody had something new and exciting to offer, and that, on top of the fact that everybody I worked with were the kindest, most caring people I’ve ever met made working in that environment especially rewarding. If any of my old clients are watching this, thank you to all of you, because you are most definitely the kind of people who make me love my job and love what I do.
For anybody interested in starting their health journey or even just continuing it at TrainSMART, I would say that if nothing else, you will learn a lot about yourself there. I would say that we put a different spin on personal fitness than a lot of other places. I think that we serve such a wide range of clients that there’s no doubt that we won’t be able to offer you at least something that will change your perspective on health and fitness and health and fitness as a lifestyle. I always like to say that if nothing else, you will definitely learn something coming here and working with us.
