If you wonder if investing in a personal trainer is worth the price, I would have to say yes. Of course I am a personal trainer BUT when I go to the gym and watch some people lift weights or doing exercises all wrong, I just want to go up to them and correct them.When you are just starting out in the gym, I would recommend you hire a personal trainer even if it is one session. If you are doing the exercise wrong, you could not only hurt yourself but you are not getting the benefits from the exercise.Think before you lift and you will thank me :)
There are many people, who think and according to their perception, fitness simply means building bodies. Now, some might have received great results by following this ideology. However, this ideology cannot be considered to be entirely true and honest if you actually want to become fit. There are many people who live in the perception that having a good figure and stout body is following correct fitness regime.
I have a friend; let's call him Derek.
Derek was an avid athlete and spent his fair time in the gym in University. The guy wasn't ripped but had some muscle. Derek is brilliant. So much so that he landed a 6-figure job directly out of University in New York. Fast-forward 5 years and he's making $500,000+ a year.
Hell ya, or shall I say heck ya, for all the appropriate peeps out there. so 1 hour and 10 minutes later I finished my 35 min walk/run session, plus weights. I am trying to go back to my older routine of heavier lifting, Whaaaaaatttt? some will say, why? the answer my dear is that I seem to do better with this training for my body type. I teach 4 classes a week but its not enough especially since Im getting a wee bit older. . I am writing this blog to keep my self accountable.
ok so im on the computer of course diddle dalying around. I need to get up so i can workout my over exausted, non sleeping body. Anyone know what that feels like? I am going to move now and put some good sound on and get moving. I hope I can push though an hour of circuit training. I am on a mission to loose about 6 lbs before I am in a bikini everyday. wish me luck on the start of my new journey.
Today and from now on, pack your gym bag the night before you go to work and put it in aplace where you almost trip over it! You will be less likely to forget your training session that you have already scheduled!
Don't let one bad day or one bad meal steer you away from your ultimate goal of being the best you, you can be. Here are some tips to get you to stay on track.
1. Lay out your gyms clothes the night before.That may prevent you from hitting that snooze button.
2. Take a photo of what you are about to eat. You will feel great when your meal looks healthly and guilt you( just a little) if your meal is not so healthly.
