One day when I was wearing a t-shirt with sleeves he complained. That was when I started to realize that he may have a crush on my arms.

If I knew there was going to be a gym photo op I would have taken five minutes to put on some eye shadow and mascara before I left the house.

Yesterday was measurement day and the good news…my measurements from yesterday prove that you can’t put too much weight on the number you see on the scale (pun intended).

Tuesday and Friday nights seem just slightly more laid back than Thursday’s. Don’t get me wrong the workouts are always “bad ass” it’s just there’s not this thing looming over us…time…”tick tock, tick tock” pushing us to jam through the session.

If you’re the boss…don’t feel guilty! This is a good example to set for your employees…life balance…health first.

Unless you’ve got some compelling information regarding a specific trainer that convinces you they are the one I recommend checking out at least three. By checking out I mean identify three trainers you are interested in and meet with each of them face-to-face. Kind of like an interview…well actually…just like an interview.

A Personal Trainer will provide you with a personalized fitness plan that enables you to see progress over time. Both the successes and failures are important. The successes help you build confidence. You realize that you can do it and you belong at the gym. You’ll realize that you are stronger and more capable than you think. The failures…well they are a part of life and without them you cannot appreciate the value of success.

This is both an emotional and financial commitment that you should not take lightly. If you are emotionally committed there’s no doubt you’ll find a way to make it work. So start slashing…number of cable channels, shoe shopping, eating in vs. eating out, iTunes, Starbucks, cigarettes??? What are you willing to give up to invest in your fitness journey?

Why am I still using a trainer? Need I say more…have you looked at my before and after photos? I know, without a doubt, that I could not have accomplished my current fitness level without my trainers.

I do want to build muscle, stronger muscles! Why? I prefer the way I look and feel today vs. prior starting my FitBattle. Do you know that the more muscle you have the more calories you burn?
