Earthly Wellness-Creating Happiness, Strength, and Wellness from Within
I see a lot of people throughout my day. Some I see for weight loss and some I see for strength. No matter the client I see, most have had a mental barrier at some point. One the most important things I've learned as a trainer is letting go of clients for much more needed help. I don't mean "let go" in the sense that they aren't doing what I say so I'm going to fire them. I mean in the sense that I know I can no longer help them.

...forever reigning champ, stress. Coming at you from actual and percieved life events, stress is the theif in the night when it comes to your health.  A little stress...unchecked can cause a heart attack. Unavoidable...if you've ever worried, eaten food, exercised, or breathed anything less than country fresh air or a filtered sea breeze, your body has had to deal with elevated levels of stress.

Humpty Dumpty Had A Great Fall! So, I'll bet you're wondering what I'm talking about, right? Now that I have your attention, let's talk about goals; and, our ability to successfully achieve them. How do we go about doing so? Well, honestly speaking, if I am not very specific when establishing a goal, I risk becoming a jack of all trades, and master of none! Now, I know there are many multi taskers out there who can easily juggle many tasks at once, but, unfortunately, I have yet to acquire this skill. Frankly speaking, I admire and applaud these folks.

When we think of modifications it is often from a specific point of view.... “I have something going on that makes my usual practice/workout painful or inaccessible, so how do I work around it”. When a trainer or instructor first learns how to teach or train they generally will learn about common conditions and how they effect the body, and specific ways to 'modify' to those conditions. This is all very helpful.
