In 1987 the fitness world had already been set ablaze. Weight rooms and group fitness classes were packed alike with eager fitness participants. People excited to get pumped, lose weight and feel great. I was an enthused 19 year old and started out as a “fitness instructor”, then soon an“aerobics instructor” and finally the first personal trainer in my city. Back then, personal training was something that was only read about for the celebrity world. I enjoyed that personalized detail you could bring to the client. It was not just a one-time tutorial on fitness equipment as it had been in the past.
