Conversations with a 15 year old……….


got into a chat about superheroes earlier with a young man named Ant, as you do at age 37……..

Ant is currently doing work experience at Cottingham Parks & we got to discussing superheroes & his childhood favourites……..

My fav was & always will be Batman….

Anyway, this got me thinking that the typical perception of a ‘fit pro’ isn’t that far from a superhero!

What I mean is that all fitness professionals are all super fit, super lean, super muscular warriors who are in top shape all year round, right?

We are always motivated, always disciplined, always positive………

Every aspect of our lives is always in order & sorted…



>YES as trainers we are motivated to workout (or should be)…….

>YES it’s a lifestyle……

>YES we love what we do………(btw if your trainer doesn’t then maybe you should start asking some questions)…..

However, this doesn’t mean that we don’t face the very same struggles you face with your fitness & health goals in other aspects of our life…..

We are human, like you……..Actually I’ve met some Trainer’s who when I think about it I’m pretty sure are either robots, cyborgs from the future, or maybe just socially retarded…. Anyway…I’m digressing………..

Here is the truth:

>We have insecurities, like you.

>We have fears, like you.

>We get upset, like you.

>We question ourselves, from time to time, like you.

>We need help with aspects of our lives, like you.

For example: just because I can apply my passion to helping others look & feel awesome, doesn’t mean I cannot learn from others to help other areas of my life.

We are ALL human…..We ALL need help with something at some point….. the key is to admit it & let the right person help you….

That’s all for today,

Tristan ‘one of middle names is actually Robin’ Buttle.
ps – who is your favourite?
