Professional Motivators


So, there's people who I see at my health club who do the same circuit with their personal trainer everyday. Strictly from a cost-perspective, couldn't they just pay for one session, memorize the routine, and then do it themselves from then on?

But, people are obviously paying for the motivation. They want to spend money on it, because then they'll actually do it.

Therefore, let's brainstorm other things that people could pay us to motivate them to do?

Oh man. Don't get me started on "life coaches..."

The sad thing is, I'm walking proof of the need for that. I'm sure I'd be doing the back exercises I'm supposed to more regularly if I was actually going to the physical therapist instead of taking the exercises and trying to do it on my own. But I'm cheap and I'm getting used to the sound of my back popping.

life-coaching is more of a comprehensive deal, i think. But what about specific things, like, they buy a personal trainer to work their body. They come to us to obtain a reading list and develop a dialogue with you in order to expand their horizons and hopefully gain wisdom...something like that.
