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 all of the previous comments but variety is key, changing up your training and routines, remaining abreast of the latest trends and having fun. I also schduke time weekly to pursue my own hobbies such as running and lately I have added endurance and adventure races to my passtimes. Variety and remaining excited by fitness enables me to pass on energy and enthusiasm to my clients.
