Ep 07: Why Consistency Is The Key To Training

 In What's New Coach

Today, I am talking with Jorge Unigarro who is a personal training manager for Equinox in New York City. He manages 40+ personal trainers and 400-600 personal clients. It is interesting to see how he keeps things going and makes both sides happy. Jorge is a competitive power lifter, a lover of cats, and probably the worst joke teller I have ever heard.

Jorge became interested in personal training while stationed in Iraq in 2004. They fashioned a makeshift gym out of an empty space. Jorge helped out and worked there and his training buddy was technically his first training client. 2 years later he started as a trainer at Equinox and has been training ever since.

Today’s topics include:

  • What Jorge learned from the military that translated into fitness training
  • How a wrong turn in Fallujah and getting lost with things blowing up around you is scary
  • Before Equinox Jorge tried working at Crunch, explored college, and drank a bit too much
  • Jorge’s responsibilities as a training manager at Equinox
  • What the programming for successful trainers is like
  • Traits that make a great personal trainer
  • Most important part of intake assessment is movement analysis
  • Digging in with the 5 whys can create connection
  • How to manage people and treat them the way they want to be treated
  • Going to conferences is a great way for trainers to expand their skills and continue education
