There are few things that create unwarranted arrogance than higher education. I never knew how much I thought knowing things could make me feel superior. Even when I was applying this amazing knowledge there is an undertone in grad school, in my experience, that has to be beat out of you in the “real world”. See the image below for what I have learned.
My buddy Brent Thacker of Train Anywhere Fitness and I went to grad school together and we had a long conversation about how arrogant we must have been right out of school. Thinking back to our early days in health and fitness we used big words to impress clients instead of trying to find out what they needed from us. We sited research that I know for a fact has changed since then but it put us on a pedestal at the time. We thought less of trainers that had less education because it made us feel superior when the truth is that if they could truly reach someone it probably didn’t matter as much as we wanted to believe. We have both changed our thinking so much and without speaking for my old college buddy, I will say we are geared up to make a REAL difference now. I am trying to humble myself as a professional and human being and I hope that comes across with Athlete On Fire. I hope other college educated industry professionals can relate.
Do you have a story that can relate to this? I’d love to hear about it and feature it on a show! Was a trainer arrogant in a situation? Are you a fitness professional that feels the same way?
