What's Your Commitment To Fitness?
Working with a trainer is the safest and easiest way to exercise.
There are many fitness professionals out there with different strategies and techniques to help their clients achieve and exceed their fitness goals. Most fitness professionals can agree, that what works for one individual, may not necessarily work for the others. One of the first questions I ask my new clients is “Are you committed and how much time are you willing to invest, to “Get the Body?" Whether it’s the body you desire or the body you must maintain to stay healthy, staying committed to your goal is essential.
We all have busy schedules, however people like to fit exercise in when they have time, but we fail to realize exercise is not an option; it's a necessity. You must set a goal and challenge yourself to ensure you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If you have a personal trainer, your trainer is not a miracle worker; if your diet is poor, you will not be successful. Your diet is pivotal in your success because you control what you put in your body.
Most of my clients are professional woman, and like many of us have very demanding schedules. One client in particular started working with me seven months ago. Initially, she was concerned that she would not be able to fully commit, because of her extremely demanding schedule. When I started training her, I knew from the onset that she took her health seriously and needed a consistent supporter who was able to hold her accountable for the goals she set. Now, she works out with me three times a week, has a good diet and continues her regimen when we’re not together. She's consistently working toward her goal with a winning attitude. She continually emphasizes her three priorities: her health, family and career. Her motivation allows her to stay balanced physically, mentally and spiritually. Way to go Andretta, you are committed!
There are many excuses why people choose not to change their diet and avoid exercise. Unfortunately, their behaviors are forced to change once they receive a bad report from their doctor. However, it should not take a life-threatening situation to make small changes that will holistically alter your life for the better.
Think about how much effort you put into your job. How much of that time is dedicated to taking care of you? I remember working long hours sitting at a desk and when I got home from work, my work continued. It never stopped and I never found time for myself. My job was demanding, but I wasn't forced to ignore my health it was my decision. I decided to make a change and the more I worked out the better I began to feel about work and everything else around me. There are many professionals that juggle a busy career and maintain their fitness goals; I applaud them because they are not only committed to their career but themselves.
What's Your Commitment?
There are many resources out there regarding fitness and exercise but ultimately the commitment is up to you and no one else can do it for you.
It's possible to be in the best shape of your life, if you commit to exercising at least 30 minutes a day and focus on healthy food choices it can be done. If you don’t have a personal trainer, exercise with a DVD or go to a gym. Your health depends on it, you can do it!
