Personal trainers attempt to maintain a long-term relationship with clients. Personal trainers might not be skilled in the art of professional competitive fitness (Bodybuilding, Bikini, Fitness, Physique and not Classic Bodybuilding).
Coaches are “Milestone” driven and created goals and milestones for clients. Often coaches work with Personal Trainers and teach personal trainers. Coaches only work with you to attain a very specific goal (competition or event). Coaches push harder and expect more. Coaches monitor your progress in and outside the gym. Coaches work on your diet and lifestyle. Coaches can be former personal trainers, but personal trainers are NOT coaches.
When you are serious about looking like a competitive bodybuilder or serious about finally looking bikini ready for summer… Hire a coach!
