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 the variety that many people are stating. Making the time to schedule your own workouts is a must. Making sure you are able to do what you are putting your clients through makes you understand what they are going through and puts you right there with them and be in the moment. Being overwhelmed and “burnt out” is just a way of telling you that you have resistance towards what is happening at the time in your life.
My own morning rituals of waking up 2 hours before I need to be anywhere, no matter how early I have to be there, helps me to be refreshed when I arrive so I am not rushed. The way you go to sleep at night, is the way you will wake up in the morning, which will determine how your day goes. Remembering to regroup and check in with myself at night and in the morning are the most important times so I am always making sure I am alignment and balanced…THEN I can help others.
