ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND 5:30 or 6:30 AM? Can I try a free week with an exercise coach at another time?
Whew. Glad that’s done. Self-promotion is kinda tiresome.
Why Lighthearted Exercise?
We are advised to take our health seriously, and I think that is sound advice.
So then we learn to write down our health goals, break them down, buy pedometers, read labels, track our macronutrients, join a gym, run with friends, cut the sugar, watch the drinking, and…
And just to be clear, I think all of that is pretty good advice, too.
It’s just that… it’s a LOT of advice.
And I think, for a lot of people, that this whole serious process of getting healthy has gotten really big and complicated. Maybe confusing. Maybe overwhelming.
That’s how it is for me too! I’ll spend hours researching, making sure I understand the science, and I’ll want to do everything right, and then I wind up with 1,000 things to do EVERY DAY FOREVER.
Between all that information plus my own ambition plus all my overthinking, I end up exhausted, with very little accomplished.
And then I get to that point where I think, if I can’t do this right, why start at all?
Do you ever get like that?
Some time ago, when I was at that point, and I realized I was hitting this point more than I liked, I thought I’d try taking a step back from taking everything so seriously.
And what I found was… when I lightened up, I lost the stress of doing all the steps exactly right. I also got a little freedom to add some fun to the process.
So… by committing to less work, more fun, I end up with more accomplished.
And that’s pretty much how a lighthearted approach to life works for me.
It’s NOT that I believe you shouldn’t take things seriously.
I promise, as your personal trainer, I take your health, safety, and happiness very seriously.
It’s just when I get stuck on something I want to get done, I have to remember:
How does that work with a lighthearted approach to fitness?
Well, if you train with me, your exercise habits can become really simple:
And as your exercise coach, I’ll sort out the rest… which exercises, what weights, how many reps, what equipment, etc.
Now, of course, you’re always welcome to ask questions and get involved in the details of your workouts. These details can include:
- Making sure your workout gets you results.
- Making sure those results match up with your goals.
- Staying current on fitness science and research.
- Assessing how you are performing at every workout and make adjustments as necessary.
- Keeping you safe.
- Updating your whole program as you need it.
- Most important! Keeping things fun and motivating!
Most of my clients want to know these details. It’s interesting and motivating. And I’m always happy to answer any questions about your fitness program.
But the nice thing is… when things do get busy and stressful for you, you’re just as welcome to forget about all these details and keep it simple:
And we’ll have fun!
See? Keep it simple and fun!
Well… it’s fun for me.
I’m hoping it’ll be fun for you too.
