Wow, she made great strides! Im really impressed with her new waist line.
Thanks. Although I train different clients for differing purposes, 75% of my clients are women over 40. That's what I'm the best at. I call myself a vanity trainer right up front. You can tell when a women has been my client for a while because she does a bunch of weird exercises - and they sport a nice figure. People always ask what the heck they're doing because some of the exercises look so odd. But they always look feminine, even against their genetics.
Vince Gironda was my idol. I was lucky enough to live close enough to his studio that a couple of my current friends worked for him, and a few more trained under him.
It stuck in my head forever when he was asked why he always contradicted himself on how to do an exercise properly. His answer, and the one I train by, "First ask yourself what are you trying to accomplish. Then think about the right way to do an exercise."
So when I train women I always ask them to show me a picture of what they want to look like. And I go from there. Hahaha!! And within a week or two they're telling me that so-and-so says I don't know what I'm doing. I always take that as a compliment.
