Health concerns derail you. I get it.

Fitness is just one piece of the puzzle.
Your body reacts to meals, stress, sleep, illness, injury, genetics…
So many things.
Take care of the factors you can improve.

I’ve either got it or I’ve seen it

I’ve been surrounded by people with disabilities my entire adult life. Friends who are blind, diabetic, asthmatic, in a wheelchair, with mental health issues, car accident injuries…you name it, I’ve seen it first hand. In myself or others nearby. Life changes quickly, and one must adapt.

Some people seem naturally able to adapt well. Others don’t, or they need a little convincing to keep going. Some struggle with maintaining enthusiasm. Fitness trainers are trained for the psychosocial as well as physical training aspects of fitness services. I’m a certified personal trainer (ACE, 2016), and I also have a psychology and sociology degree that gives me a great context for understanding life’s quirky situations.

Fitness can fit into your life, and you won’t be alone

Fitness recommendations for the general public is 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity per week. That’s doable if you break it into 50 minutes, 3 times per week, or 30 minutes, 5 times per week, or some other variation. Die-hard runners often get this done first thing in the morning. Personally, I do yoga or weights in the early evening, and roller skating as well, after school’s out and the nice clean pavement at the local high school becomes available.

For peer support, try Facebook groups (and the Groups app on your smartphone). Check out sparkpeople.com forums regularly to get encouraged to do exercise from some exciting people outside your local social circle.
