Are You Ahead of Your Time?

If you are reading this, you know I am big into injuries.

That is my thing.

That is what I see, live, breath and overcome.

Sometimes I think I am a little crazy to be focused on this.

I wanted to get a reality check about this injury thing, I thought I would walk up to Tom Plummer and ask him about injuries.

Since I have presented at number of fitness conferences, I know that presenters are easily reachable.  I know I love it when people come up and ask me questions.

I had been sitting in the audience for 6.3 hours and I have been listening to his recommendations when it comes to what fitness clubs should be doing and highlighting what fitness clubs are doing wrong.

As I walked up, I was not sure of what to expect.  Tom is a blunt guy.  It you are wrong or suck, he will let you know.

I thought he would say it is a crazy idea and I was wasting my time.

I waited my turn and asked.

Here goes my question:

“Tom, I don’t do group training or training in a club.  I do one-on-one training focusing on people with injuries.  Do you think I am crazy for being in this niche and is there a future in this niche?”

What Tom Plummer had to Say about Training Clients with Injuries

“You are ahead of your time.

Injuries will be a big trend in the future.

We will see this in 3 to 5 years.

I was talking to ACE Fitness about this.

It will be important for fitness centres and professionals to be able to address special populations.”

Then he gave me a pat on the shoulder and said I was in a good niche.

That was cool.

So cool.

I am not crazy.

I might be onto something.

Are you ahead of your time?
