You have all seen it…. The ”tubby” trainer, and is still tubby although she/he is doing 5,6,7 or MORE classes a week! How can this be, training cardio that often and still be in worse shape than many participants?
For me as an instructor this was a mystery when I started teaching… Why did I not get more results? Im TRAINING MY ASS OF HERE!!!
I have written about this before at Fitness Magazines blog, but after getting back to sweden, I decided to write about it again. Cuz way to many instructors around the world are training to much, and don’t get any results and have no clue why!
Charles Poliquin and colleagues have identified The Chunky Aerobic Instructor Syndrome. Poliquin found that aerobics instructors quickly adapted to the workload of teaching classes, often performing three hours of exercise a day. Despite the fact that this is the equivalent training level of a professional athlete, the instructors still maintained disproportionately high body fat levels. How do you break out of this and start getting results?
Well, Charles believe that You should implement a serious strength program, and stop doing or teaching so many cardio based classes. So, start eating more MEAT (or protein) more healty FAT, and get those weights off the ground!
I think It would be mandatory to do some kind of strength program if you are a professional instructor, you will FEEL better and stronger, INJURY yourself LESS and LOOK better in front of your participants, and be more credible in our role as instructors…
Do you walk the talk????
Cuz NOT ALL aerobic instructors are tubby, one of the best (and a dear friend) is THIS GUY and he is RIPPED, and still an awesome aerobic and step presenter. My favorite by far!
