Q&A : What’s the hardest part about being a trainer?

There?s no doubt about it, Chris and I absolutely love what we do. It truly is our driving force in life and inspires us to work harder, be better, and make a difference day in and day out. We are blessed to do what we love, and love what we do, but even with such a passion for our profession, there are a few pitfalls too. Check out the video below to see what we think the hardest part of our job is!

As with any career, our job has it setbacks, but I can assure you, the positives far outweigh any possible negatives, and we are so grateful for all of our amazing opportunities every single day. Now, if we could just find a bit more balance?adding that to the 2015 resolutions list ;)!

  1. loved the video and love you guys. This would be a great opportunity to help your fellow trainers help you reach all those people. You to put a very human face on personal training and how wonderful it can be and how transformative it can be for peoples lives. There’s a lot of us out here who share your passion for transforming lives. Maybe a nod in our direction would help us reach all those people.

  2. I would love your advice/guidance. I’m a mom of a very sweet 9 month old baby girl! Im obsessed with her and am having a hard time working full time and finding time to work out. I would also love your advice about good eating advice for kiddos. I’m focusing on non-processed, organic foods, but what about carbs? I used to be paleo, so it’s hard to know for her what’s best. Just want a healthy outlook on food for her and us. Thanks for all you do!

    1. Congratulations on the new baby girl – that’s so exciting! Heidi and Chris recommend kids get a well-rounded diet full of lean proteins, carbs (fruits, veggies, whole grains, legumes, etc.), and healthy fats. Here’s a post that talks about family nutrition – hope it helps! https://heidipowell.net/7986/funwithfood/.

  3. Ok Chris’s words made me cry! Thank you so much to both of you for what you do! I’ve loved following you both on facebook and have learned so much! So THANKS!! 🙂

    1. wow you 2 are amazing helping all these people i really wish my husband would lose the weight just for health reasons and to live a long happy marriage and we are always together 24 hours a day love it

  4. So Inspired by the two of you!
    I’m a physiotherapist and my man is a personal trainer and a firefighter and we discovered the two of you thanks to the Bode-program two years ago. Inspired by you guys we now work as a team, here in Sweden, helping Swedish people to a healthier lifestyle. So even if you guys feel you only can help a few, I think there are many people like myself that have started to help others thanks to the two of you!
    If you ever need help with anything don’t hesitate to email me, we would love to help in anyway we can! Hopefully we can take the spot as Swedens answer to “Chris and Heidi” 🙂
    Last but not least! (In Swedish)
    Ta hand om varann

  5. Remember to always try (I know it’s hard) to make time for Chris and Heidi!!! Because shows end, kids grow up, life happens and at the end of the day, it will eventually come back to just Chris and Heidi. Don’t lose the love and respect for each other while trying to help the world.

  6. Please be at peace that you are reaching and helping transform the masses! I read the comments on your diet bet and you are helping and inspiring not just me and my sister but thousands of people!! Keep up the great work and be at peace that you two are indeed making a difference!! I feel like you guys are personal friends!

  7. You guys are Awesome. This video also helped my husband and I because we work together too. And yes we have to separate business from personal when we’re with or kids too. We love you guys. Thank you for inspiring us to be better and healthier. My daughter and I are still working out
