The thing is i am here to remain accountable. If i know that i need to do a regular blog on here than i need to make sure i have something to write about!
My story goes something like this…..
I am a 44 year old Personal Trainer that is actually really good at her job. I joined the industry quite late compared to others. I have never been a fitness freak…lol i don’t live, eat, sleep breath the gym. so you could ask why am I a PT then? I am a PT because i was old by many people that i inspire them… and that right there is what i struggle with.
I run my own show, got a nice little private studio and i love that its all mine. No having to get into the gym early to fight over equipment with the other PT’s, no expensive rent to pay the gym and no pressure to give all my services away free cos that what the gym is promoting at the moment to get new members. I am my own boss and although sometimes its a bit lonely to be responsible for everything i absolutely love that i have the freedom to do what i want.
So back to that thing i am struggling with….
I guess in fact i know that i don’t know what it is about me that inspires my clients..don’t get me wrong its awesome very awesome but i see what my clients do and i am in awe of them. They work so hard, they push themselves to their absolute limit and are reaping the benefits…perfect.
Then theres me…
Yep i fell head over heels into the “so busy working on clients i don’t work on myself” hole. Most people believe that being a PT means you are bouncing around like a bunny all day long, you eat kale and never chocolate….hahahaha Thats not me. Having just come back from a eye opening 6 day trek across the desert in central Australia covering 180km and feeling yet again disappointed with my performance, i decided its time i took a dose of my own medicine, time i spent some time training me, lets see what i can do!
So this blog is basically going to be me writing about my journey… I am going back to the desert and this time it means business. Call it a PT giving herself a taste of her own medicine. A PT deciding that its time that i sucked it up and got on with it..that 250km run isn’t going to complete itself!!
So this is my journal, my log, my diary of sorts…I wanted to document my journey up until the next run. Document my ups and owns successes and failures ..whilst it not be extremely interesting to others for me to be able to go back and read this will be awesome.
