Time to Recommit

I average about 7-9 personal training clients per day and most people think, “You get to work out all day!” But even though I’m a personal trainer, it’s tough to keep up regular training routines for myself. Often I’ll work all day and not get in any training for myself.

Recently, I went through a 6-week stretch sporadically training with very little intense cardio. I was definitely enjoying being inactive and the urge to train regularly was slipping away.

 

Just like a lot of my clients, I had fallen into a pattern of no exercise and needed someone or something to motivate me. I decided I had to challenge myself and sought out one of the best personal trainers in the city, joined in on one of his group assessments and was shocked and humbled as he read off my numbers: 198lbs and 26% body fat.  Not only that, but I failed my stress test and was able to do only 37 pushups in 60 seconds. Wow, what an eye opener and wakeup call!  How could I let myself get this out of shape and how could I preach to my clients and not “walk my talk”?

Recommit. I immediately decided that I needed to recommit to myself, my family and my clients. Not just today or tomorrow, but every single day.  I challenge you to find a way to recommit and be focused on moving forward every day. It won’t always be fun and it will be uncomfortable, but your ability to power through and push forward is directly tied to your re-commitment level. Challenge yourself and seek out friends and/or colleagues who are willing to push you and hold you accountable.   Short term sacrifice = Long term health
