What is a Quitter?

Definition of a Quitter

As a health & fitness business and Caveman Training Trainers we do not like people quitting on us! Now, this might seem a bit hard and unfair, but let’s take a closer look at the definition of a Quitter;

A Quitter is someone who still has sufficient energy left to complete an exercise but CHOOSES not to complete it, because it’s too hard or gets them out of their comfort zone. A Quitter is someone who quits because they can’t physically perform the exercise at that moment, doesn’t take the time to recover, get back on their feet and give it another go!

What Is It Not!
A Quitter is not someone who stops and really can’t do anymore because they are injured or thinks they might get injured if they continue.

We are all about promoting a No Quitting attitude, as long as it’s within the safety zone and doesn’t put the client in any danger of getting injured.

The Rise of Serious Fitness

These days just about anyone calls themselves a personal trainer, and to tell you the truth, with the low standards of certifications you can’t really blame the trainers. It looks like the industry is diluting its focus on requiring certificates/accreditations for just about everything that’s done these days, making more money on many things; Boot Camps, Boxing etc. etc. If the focus would be more on creating a good Trainer from the get go, a Trainer that knows how to correct form and technique, how to speak to their clients, a Trainer that’s able to get into the mind of the client and being able to lead groups. A good Trainer like that will also be good at Boot Camps, Boxing, Group Training, Personal Training etc.

I’d say 80% if not more of today’s trainers are nothing more than an excuse for a client to show up, talk to and move the chit chat muscles without breaking a sweat. Trainers are too scared to push their clients a little harder.

Before I go any further, a little about myself; I class myself as an entrepreneur/analyst and although I passed the Caveman Training Certification I’m not a Personal Trainer myself, and I don’t class myself as one, I do however run a successful health and fitness business for over 5 years, and see trainers and clients from a bird’s eye view, and the above is my opinion based on what I see when watching videos, assessing competitors, watching other trainers in the park, watching trainers in the gym when I work out non-stop.

For years as a business we’ve been choosing quality over money and training our clients harder than the average trainer would, we’ve chosen to refund people their money if they are not the right fit for the training group, we push people till they puke.

This year we’ve made the decision to go one step further and create the toughest training centre in Brisbane called The TOUGHSPOT, this gym will provide some of the hardest hardcore training methods you can find, and they will make you scream, grunt, sweat and puke! Although we will have some of the traditional equipment, the majority will be non traditional like; sledge hammers, tyres, slosh pipes, kegs, pull up rings, gas masks (ooh yes, just wait and see what we can do with that), ropes etc. etc.

I believe you can only create athletes if you push people further than they THINK they can go, keep them working non-stop and keep their bodies guessing as to what comes next or for how long! This is The Rise of Serious Training. Happy Training – Get Smashed!

PS. We’re looking for some more like minded trainers, they are hard to find!
