Nick Hernandez, General Manager of World Gym-Texas City, posed the question, “How do I train someone for one hour, so that the other 23 hours are influenced by that one hour of training?” Great question! Nick believes you must dive into the psychology of coaching. It’s not just eating or exercising better. You MUST understand the “WHY.” Why do our habits get so many of us off track in our journey toward fitness and wellness? Why are the things we do, when we’re not in the gym, derailing the things we do when we are there? And what can be done about it? Nick decided he needed to understand the “why” of our lifelong habits. Why do we eat the things we know we shouldn’t? How can we change those habits in a sustainable way?
Then he set about sharing that mindset—of searching out the “why”—with the trainers and coaches at World Gym-Texas City, teaching them to understand the psychology of fitness and how to pass that along to their members and help them break the habits that are holding them back. “It’s not just about eating right and exercising better,” he said. “You must dive into the psychology of coaching. You MUST understand the WHY.”
“A lot of trainers underestimate fitness as a whole and they believe there’s not a true customization of programs for each client,” Nick said. “That’s the furthest thing from the truth. One program does not fit all!”
Members of the award-winning World Gym-Texas City can attest that his philosophy has made all the difference for them. This 100,000 square foot gym offers something for everybody from the serious bodybuilder and gym rat to the senior who’s working their way back from an injury and it does so in a welcoming, community atmosphere. It’s become the ultimate fitness destination for thousands.
