A Chat with Steve Dugger Personal Training
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I’ve owned a CrossFit gym and have been [offering] personal training in Orange County since 2007, and I recently relocated to Fresno. I’ve helped hundreds of people reach their goals. I’ve coached people from all walks of life and all ages, from homemakers to special forces and from FBI HRT guys to busy single fathers.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
I work very closely with clients, using creative visualization and sport psychology techniques to stay focused on the goal.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After playing college water polo, my personal fitness had severely diminished and I was inspired by the early previews of the movie “300”. So, I contacted the trainer and flew out to their facility in Salt Lake City to get certified with them and learn everything there is about coaching and programing.
What do you love most about your job?
Being a part of another person’s evolution. I love teaching and sharing with others. and I love seeing the confidence that comes with being fit and strong.
