As a Dunedin trainer, many may think that my job is just about getting people “into shape”, but it’s actually so much more than that. To me, my job is about helping people to change their lives for the better and here are a few of the ways that I do that…
Dunedin Trainer on Changing Your Life For the Better
Fitness is Individual
One of the ways that I help all of my clients to live a healthier lifestyle is by helping them to understand that fitness is individual. A fitness routine that works for one person, won’t necessarily work for another. This is because we are all built differently, we all have different levels of ability, and we all have different passions and driving forces. Success in fitness training is about finding a fitness regime that works for YOU!
Food is Fuel
Many of my clients come to me telling me that they love food too much to be able to lose unhealthy weight. I always explain that I understand, I love food too, but it’s the way that we look at food that matters! It’s a very important part of everyone’s lifestyle to learn to see food as the fuel that it should be for our bodies. In order to feel healthy and to enjoy life, we have to put food into our bodies that provide us with energy so that we can keep “running” our engines. You put in junk food, and you’re not going to have a healthy source of energy available, instead, you’re going to have energy that burns quickly and leaves you to come crashing down from a sugar high. Food should be enjoyed, but it should also be the premium fuel that our bodies need.
Most of us walk blindly through our lives. We follow our routines, we make choices mindlessly, we simply don’t stop to recognize what we are doing and why we are doing it. In order to live a healthier life, you have to be able to identify what you are doing, why you are doing it, and stop yourself from doing it when you are doing something that is counterproductive. For example, if you overeat when you are stressed, learning to recognize this as a problem will help you to recognize when you are engaging in this behavior and stop yourself in the future.
Understanding Your Limitations
Plenty of fitness trainers will try to tell you that there are “no limitations to what you can do”, well, in an ideal world, this would be true. The truth is, though, that we all have some limitations that prevent us from taking part in certain activities or behaviors. It’s crucial to recognize these limitations so that we don’t ignore warning signs and push our bodies too far resulting in injury!
