I know a lot of trainers and fitness instructors who focus on training so many clients, that they ignore their own personal need to stay healthy and excited about teaching/training. It would be great to know what other fitness professionals do to stay excited and energized about working with their clients.
I have been a physical therapist x 25 yrs, personal trainer/pilates instructor for over 10 yrs. and have my own business. I take time to pursue personal hobbies unrelated to PT/fitness, get together with family/friends who rarely discuss health/fitness etc. and also spend time being active and concentrate on physical activities that I truly enjoy, primarily, such as leisure bike riding; though also put in time with high calorie burning activities/functional ex. to incorporate UE/LE ex simultaneously to make my own workouts very efficient, since I have so little time. The more I feel like a complete person, it enables me to give 100% to my clients if I have taken care of myself. I also read/update myself, get new books etc, take l course a year to remain current.
