Once in a while I get a client that I have to say, “We are not a good fit.”  I really don’t like doing it and it isn’t an easy conversation to have but it needs to happen.  Its like any relationship, we have to be on the same page.  I have to end my relationship with a client when they are hiding things from me, purposely sabotaging their goals and are disrespecting our time together.

I don’t believe in “cheating” the body so taking fat burners or steroids is not condoned in my studio.  I can tell if you are doing something without you telling me.  I know when you aren’t giving me all the facts about your diet without you writing it down in your journal.  I can see if you have been doing your exercises when you attend your sessions with me.  I know when you are hiding something from me.

When a client tells me what they want, I tell them how to get it.  If they keep “complaining” they aren’t getting what they want but aren’t willing to do what is necessary to get it then our time is over.  I will not fight with their biggest sabotage-er, themselves.  There is no quick visit, fast diet, easy pill to take.  It is all them to blame for failure or to recognize for success.  Don’t sabotage yourself and blame me.

I won’t tolerate constant tardiness or absence.  If you say you are going to be at my studio at a certain time then make sure you are here ready to workout.  I have little patience for continuous excuses.  We are all busy and stressed and pulled in several directions.  I make the time to be here for you.  I think about what would be best for you.  I only ask that you take the time to be here for me.  Respect my time.
