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 am constantly reading new articles and watching DVD’s to get new program and coaching ideas. My clients enjoy the change and I’m excited when I try something new. I also change my workout routine to include some of the challenging workouts I’ve designed for my clients. It helps me gauge the intensity of a workout and how it might be modified.
I like to always make sure I block off an hour or 2 in the middle of the day that is MY time to workout and I dont let anything interupt that. I treat it as if it were an appointment with a client. If you can’t get motivated about helping your clients lose weight or achieve their goals day in and day out you might be in the wrong profession! So if you have trouble motivating yourself just thing of how excited your clients get when they get results!
