Afterwards in the gym, I demonstrated the vari-
ous exercise movements as shown in the prior video presentation, also pointing out common mistakes, how to correct them, and how to properly spot these exercise movements. The students then practiced the exercise movements, while receiving my tips and suggestions on how to optimize their exercise technique.
By 5:30pm, all daily instruction was completed;
but, being avid itness enthusiasts, all our participants accepted my ofer to guide them through a workout for the “body-part of the day”, each of them at their indi- vidual training level. This provided all participants with an excellent training experience, while conveying how a proper workout is conceived and administered.
After training, our students were ofered a tasty whey-protein shake and dinner was served. Each day concluded with social gathering.
All six seminar days were conducted in similar fashion until Saturday, when the inal exam was scheduled, which all our students had volunteered to take at our academy in a proctored environment. Promptly evaluat- ing their completed exams later that evening, I found that all students had successfully passed.
On Sunday morning before their departure, I took
our graduates on a sightseeing tour to nearby ancient temple sites. Here we enjoyed the aura of marvelous antique architecture, took plenty of photos, and had a great time. In accordance with the quote “a healthy mind in a healthy body”, our visitors thus also beneited on a spiritual level from their stay with us. During the whole week, we tried to convey by our own example that being a truly professional trainer is not merely about acquiring the highest level of itness expertise, but even more so about kindness, caring, sharing, helping, and giving. n
