When people hear that I am a Personal Trainer their response is almost the same. “I want to get in shape, but I love to eat”, or “i’m just too lazy”. There are lots of personal training myths!
Personal Training Myths
Just because you are in shape does not mean you have to completely eliminate food that makes you ‘feel all tingly inside.” Depending on your health, it is perfectly fine to occasionally enjoy a piece of cake, or your favorite snack.
Some people have this misconception that trainers eat unseasoned meat, sweet potato, and veggies everyday. Some people even believe we spend all our days in the gym. Some of us do, but I am a mom of 3, a wife (which means I actually have four kids),
I am establishing a business, and trying to maintain my studies so “ain’t nobody got time for that.” I workout 4 days a week for at least one and half hours and I thank God for it because its is probably the most time i get away from the kids. When I feel like I don’t have the time, I make the time. When I start to feel the food pressure, I substitute (and imagine like i’m in the Peter Pan movie).
Listen, I get it, we are all busy, we love to eat, and daily responsibilities drain us alone, but if you truly want to FEEL good about yourself, you have to start within and change your lifestyle.
Fitness is a lifestyle that you will never regret engaging in.
