Personal Trainer Denver Co student Linda Hughes talks about our virtual training program.
Personal training student Linda Hughes has been a guest blogger off and on. She called me this morning asking to share how she is doing with her new customized virtual training program.
It’s true, I am in the 2nd week of it, and I want to shout from the rooftops how great it is. Before I do, please let me give you a quick history.
For 2 years I trained with Mark four days a week and I loved it. I loved being in such great shape, I had muscle tone, I had super energy levels, I think I was at the height of my perfect physical health.
Then, I moved 3 times, lost my father to a long illness, and my lifestyle changed drastically. I could no longer make it to a scheduled workout. And then, I got out of the habit of it. It is amazing how quick you can get out of great health and fitness.
I still can’t afford the time needed for a scheduled workout and I don’t think Mark would be willing to do an in-home training at some of the crazy hours I do have available to train. But, I so desparately needed a way to get back to great physical fitness.
So, I asked him to put together a virtual training program. But, I didn’t just want him to send me a bunch of exercises and say have fun. Instead, he created a workout plan based on my current fitness level and is monitoring how I do with that. We have made a few adjustments even in one week. We have reviewed my commitment to the plan, when I will be doing it, and finally what and when I will eat.
I don’t know about any of you, but, this is where the problems begin. Some days more like a nightmare. I always thought it was just me, until recently, when I spent 14 days with 2 other women on a business trip. And then I realized it is probably even more common than you would imagine.
Ladies, please, you can not lose weight or inches by starving yourself or by only eating salad. It is so hard to break this habit. But, I think if I don’t I will have serious health consequences. And the worst part about it is that I definitely won’t lose an inch or a pound.
Very patiently Mark has worked with me on this issue. I think I even had a breakthrough yesterday. I finally got it! Of course it took reading his helpful tips over and over, but, I think I finally get it! So, now it is almost like a fun project or game that I get to work on… hmmm, I am thinking we will have success here!
Anyway, after my cardio this morning, I was so excited I had to tell someone. What better way to do this than on his blog?
If you struggle with your weight, with your food habits, with your health and with your fitness, give him a call. He will help you set up a program, specially designed for you. If you can afford the time and live in the Denver area, set up a one on one training. If you are strapped for time like me, or if you don’t live here, then still call him. He has a really great virtual program.
Don’t wait. You are so worth it, so just do it.
