The Importance of Self-Awareness for Every Personal Trainer's Success

A Lesson In Becoming Self Aware, With The Man Whisperer Kenny Mammarella-D’Cruz - PT COREntrepreneur Podcast 

Because training and personal fitness are intensely physical, we can often lose sight of the need to be self-aware in order to help ourselves and our clients. This understanding of our emotions allows us to know ourselves on a much more intimate level. This benefits everyone: the trainer will be able to feel better in themselves and they will become more effective at dealing with the root causes of why their client has turned to them for help in the first place. This can lead to greater and greater success.

“I ask the right questions and help things authentically fall together. Then the pennies drop and you become your own authentic man”

– Kenny Mammarella-D’Cruz

About Kenny Mammarella-D’Cruz

As a child, personal development coach Kenny Mammarella-D’Cruz was forced to flee from Uganda to England with his mother after Idi Amin came to power.

He turned to extreme sports and worked on tight deadlines in order to distract himself from the pain and emptiness that he felt within himself. He realised that he had to change his mindset, so he went inward, and through a period of intense self-inspection was able to fully come to terms with his past.

From there, worked in development in Fiji, ran a health centre in Australia and collaborated with Mother Teresa’s Missionaries Of Charity Organisation.

He was also responsible for rebranding the sports supplement company Maximuscle, now known as MaxiNutrition. Currently, he is a coach and consultant, dubbed “The Man Whisperer” by Newsweek. His aim is to help men reach their ultimate personal goals through one-on-one sessions and group training.
