Fitness is a lifestyle
You don’t have to belong to the gym to be fit. You don’t even have to lift weights. The issue is one of consistency, not location. Make fitness a way life, not a burden. Make it fun.
What is it you like to do? Do you long walks? Then walk. Maybe jogging isn’t your thing, but you enjoy riding a bicycle. Do you need more flexibility? Try yoga. If you don’t like yoga, there are plenty of stretching exercises you can do while you’re watching TV. If you like competition, join a club that offers competition. If you play golf, try to walk instead of riding a cart. If the club you play at requires a cart, take turns with the other person in the cart to alternate holes to walk. The main thing is to be active.
Fitness is a lifestyle. It’s a commitment to be engaged. Find means of exercise that you enjoy and do it.
Why do you need a personal trainer?
Motivation: Sometimes you need someone to be there to encourage you to move forward and be consistent.
Method: You don’t know how to exercise. Or, don’t know how to do certain exercises properly.
Consistency: You need someone that will be there to make sure you do it.
Special needs: You have an injury or other condition that needs special attention that you can’t do on your own.
You don’t like the gym: You prefer individual attention and not a group setting.
Others: You have specialized goals that need specific training. Or, you need someone to help you with nutrition.
