I’m still trying to learn how to deal with this myself. And I have to admit I am not very good at it! I find myself making comments that I shouldn’t and feel horrible after. But the truth is my spouse has asked me for the help, one of the reasons being she feels unfit around me and a lot of my friends who are also in the fitness industry.
So I’ve been doing my best to help her by training with her and guide her nutritionally without being too involved. But I know, as all fitness professionals know, you should probably never train your spouse. Its really like having one of your clients at home and you see everything they eat and when they don’t workout.
And then I either say something which never works or I keep my mouth shut and it eats me up inside! I want to see everyone succeed in being healthy and living a healthy lifestyle. Especially my partner and so it is very difficult situation!
You bring up a good question and I didn’t really even answer your question. ha. I think that yes it is difficult to be in front of a bunch of fit people when your partner is unfit. I know it shouldn’t matter but I’m a health freak so its difficult. 🙂
