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 change my routine to a new activity that my gym training helped to make a great foundation. Running a marathon, skating, surfing are things I like to do to stay energized so I don’t experience professional burn out. I like to stay fit and sometimes when I give all my time and energy into my clients I need another escape other than all weight training so, I may do more yoga or line dance. I just want to have fun and be healthy and when I remember that I get re-energized to not burn out in my profession. I also like to read things on fitness as much as possible because that keeps my fire for fitness burning 🙂
