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. Like anything else, you need balance. That is hard to find when you first start out and are trying to build your business, but make sure you have at least 1 FULL day without clients, working out or planning. Leave time for yourself and other interests.
That being said, I am always most inspired when taking classes, getting new certifications and attending conferences/lectures. So pepper those into your time as needed… maybe every couple months.
