Become A Personal TrainerWritten by Jan Nicholas
Every human body is different and a personal trainer will know exactly how to not just get a human body into proper shape but also shape body into desired form. A personal trainer knows that while guys may want to ‘bulk up’; a girl might want to slim down. A good personal trainer will know what to do to get desired look wanted by their client.
To get started, it really comes down to lessons from instructors about how different exercises affect human body. The key to being a good personal trainer is not just knowledge of how body works but continuing education on new ways to improve our bodies. When clients ask you about your background as a personal trainer, you should be able to tell them that your education is ongoing, that you continue to take classes yourself on exercise and health and nutrition.
Once you feel comfortable with your knowledge about a personal trainer, your next step is to start doing what personal trainers do, hang out at gyms. Sometimes best way to get clients is to not only participate in gym’s daily activates, but to observe other clients and how they are doing. If you see someone struggling with some of equipment, ask him or her if they would like some help. A helping hand is a great way to open a conversation and promote your business.
To command attention from a crowd of people concerned about their health, you could also offer free classes at gym or at local YMCA. Keep these classes short, about twenty minutes, of light and easy exercises but don’t make them feel like they have done nothing all class either. Everyone could benefit from a little aerobic exercise. While they are learning, teach them about proper form, breathing techniques and brag about results you have had with other clients. It draws attention and desire from people looking to get same results you can produce.
Using A Hardwood Floor SanderWritten by Lee Dobbins
Refinishing your hardwood floors yourself can be time consuming and a bit scary at first but well worth it in long run. It can cost a bundle to hire a professional to refinish your floors for you, but if you have time, you can do it yourself. The most difficult part is learning to run sander. Many people are afraid of ruining their floors, and you can really damage a floor if you do not take care in sanding.
Sanding is fairly easy if you pay attention and finish does not take as long to dry as you might have been led to believe. You can rent a sander from your local Home Depot or hardware supply store. You’ll need a drum sander, a belt sander or both. They will explain to you how to use machine and tell you what kind of sand paper to purchase. They will also tell you what kind of stain and finish to get. Make sure you also pick up some dust masks because you will have saw dust everywhere.
The key to a good floor finish is surface, so most important thing when learning how to run sander is getting a feel for equipment. Sanders are not as hard to use as you think. They are loud and messy, but fairly easy to operate. Just keep sander in motion at all times. Moving sander in a constant motion will reduce risk of damaging your floor. Equate it to using an iron on your clothes – if you stop in 1 spot too long you’ll burn a hole. The sander is similar since it creates a lot of heat, keeping it in 1 spot can burn or dent your floor.
