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 agree with Natalie above. Variety, variety, variety is the key! Just as one of your clients could become bored, stagnant and not continue to make progress with their fitness if your workouts with them don’t offer variety, so can we become bored or stagnant if we don’t constantly change things up for ourselves. Challenging yourself by constantly learning new techniques and theories, attending professional development opportunities, and finding new ways to reach potential clients (e.g. writing and speaking) are all great ways to stay on top of information in our field while at the same time remaining energized and challenged.
I hope this helps. Good luck!
