What do professionals say about Ironstar?
In today's blog we host Jurij, a professional personal fitness trainer that spends hundreds of hours a month in the gym and knows for sure which equipment is of high quality.
Jurij, thank you for your time. Tell us about yourself, who are you, what do you do and what is your goal with clients.
Hi, I’m coach Jurij from Slovenia and I am a Personal Trainer. I work with my clients to help them achieve their goals and transform their lives for the better. I truly enjoy introducing a better lifestyle, so people can write better life stories for themselves.
What would you say is the most important aspect in fitness and which piece of equipment / accessory is a must-have when working out?
For me personally, the most important thing in the fitness industry is consistency. Why? Because consistency is the one that will keep you on track, even when the motivation fails you. And because of consistency, you will keep going, keep pushing even on the days you might not feel like working out, but we all know that at the end of every workout, we feel great and it’s good for our health.
With IRONSTAR equipment, everything is much easier - once you have equipment that is quality built, and has a modern design that gives that extra visually pleasing effect, it’s not hard to get motivated and stay consistent. One thing I use the most is definitely a squat rack - in my case, it’s the Star Beast Wall mount rack C2 with all the attachments. A set of bumper plates + barbell, dumbbells and kettlebells are also mandatory, at least for my style of training.
What’s your opinion regarding the IRONSTAR fitness equipment?
Like I said, one of the best. I tend to give a lot of attention to the attitude someone gives to their customers/clients and they really excel in this department. They not only make high-quality equipment and offer custom design products if needed, but their customer service is extremely good - they are quick to answer and really try to find the best solution and meet the customer’s needs. Even though they are relatively new on the market, they operate like they have been in the industry for 10+ years.
What is the most important thing people want when they decide for you to be their personal trainer?
The most important thing to my clients, and also for me, is our relationship. My motto is “Build a strong culture and you will build a strong business.”
How to stay disciplined and achieve optimal results?
To show up. Doesn’t even have to be every day, but just be consistent. Consistency is the key to success, more so than motivation, like I said. One of the most important aspects to achieving optimal results is having a personalized training program, which includes high volume and high-velocity training, but also recovery.
Would you recommend IRONSTAR equipment?
Yes, of course! I think it’s a great company, the team behind it is amazing and I am supporting them 100%. I’m sure that whoever wants to start their fitness journey or just upgrade their current situation, from beginners and recreational users to professionals in the industry, everyone can find the right equipment for themselves in IRONSTAR’s range of products.
Jurij, thank you for your time and we wish you all the best in your career!
