It's challenging to find a fitness instructor who offers personalized workout programs and diet plans by examining your body types. But Dor Eckstein isn't your ordinary fitness instructor. He likes to talk to his clients in detail about their lifestyle, eating choices, exercise habits, and work schedule to create tailor-made workout programs.
Mr. Eckstein is a fitness instructor at the renowned Wingate College and a part of the ISA International Sports Nutrition Organization. We are happy to have Mr. Eckstein with us today to answer a few of our questions.
Q: Mr. Eckstein, thank you for talking to us today. Can you tell us how you're able to help so many clients achieve their fitness goals?
Some like to lose weight, while others want to gain muscle mass. But most of them can't achieve their fitness goals in time because they don't understand their body type properly.
A: I think a lot of people are not happy with their physique. Some like to lose weight, while others want to gain muscle mass. But most of them can't achieve their fitness goals in time because they don't understand their body type properly. Here's where I can make a difference. I consider the body type first before recommending any diet plan and workout programs. Clients who listen to my instructions religiously have already noticed significant changes in their physique.
Q: What's your process of working with your clients?
A: First, you need to contact me by sending your name and contact details. You can even come to my clinic in Tel Aviv or make a face to face video call. During your appointment, you can tell me everything about your lifestyle, past experiences while trying to reach a fitness goal, eating habits, and how many times you exercise every week.
I assess everything before providing any exercise program. Next, I will examine your fat percentage, body types, and your metabolic rate. Once I have all these details, I prepare a nutrition menu and a training program based on the above information. I expect my clients to follow my instructions if they want to improve their fitness and overall health. I conduct follow-up meetings every month so that I can suggest any changes to your program if required.
Q: What if someone has a question regarding their nutrition menu or workout program before the follow-up meeting?
A: Once a client decides to follow my fitness program, I share my phone number. My clients can contact me by calling or texting me on WhatsApp. I am usually prompt to answer any type of query unless I am sleeping or attending an appointment.
Q: What message do you have for those who want to become a fitness instructor?
A: You shouldn't stop reading about nutrition and fitness. The more you read, the more you learn about how different types of bodies work. And the more you know, the more knowledge you gather on dealing with different kinds of clients. Even though I am a professional fitness instructor now, I read academic articles on nutrition whenever I get time.
That dedication and passion speak volumes about your success. Thank you, Mr. Eckstein, for your time today. Without question, the world needs more fitness instructors like you who have an unwavering passion for helping people lead healthier lifestyles.
