I am a trainer. •
I have 15 plus years of certifications under my belt, as a certified trainer, various levels in coaching certifications, hundreds of online health coaching clients and experience in and out of the gym with clients with one on one. I love to teach weight training, sports conditioning and love to teach others about living a healthy lifestyle. I run my own fitness and health coaching business and love to keep woman motivated and always moving forward with their goals.
I am also a wife and mother of 5 children, and lead a very busy life helping my husband run the home front and our hobby farm on our 80 acre plot. •
But some days EVEN as an experienced trainer who has trained for novice woman’s figure competition, trained and disciplined for many professional photo shoots, and trained and ran over 10 half marathons and other various races?
I struggled with my workout today, both mentally and physically. My legs felt heavy, by coordination just didn’t want to jive and over all I just wasn’t in the mood.
I am only human. As busy moms doing it’s all I get it. I really really do. To carry the world on your shoulders each day is both mentally, physically and emotionally exhausting. •
Today I showed up to my class, severely un motivated, not having the energy to motivate others, and just wanting to crawl back into bed.
One by one, clients showed up, each giving me a reason to be there. First client even had me convinced she would just come back in the evening... until the next one showed up. •
Sometimes you need to literally step out of your comfort zone in order to do something uncomfortable.
Getting that workout in that I really didn’t want to do, turned out to be the best part of my day.
♀️Fellow moms out there. You may be have one crappy week, month or even year. I know it’s been tough for me but I have said time and time again, that working out and running has saved me. It may not solve all your problems, it won’t cure your blues, BUT definitely will distract you for the hour and give you a whole whack of endorphins and give you that sense of accomplishment.
