Things fitness instructors wish you knew
We've all heard the saying, "It takes four weeks for you to notice you body changing, eight weeks for your friends and family to notice, and 12 weeks for the rest of the world to notice," but those first four weeks can be some of the toughest as we navigate our way around this change and new lifestyle.
While many of us may hire trainers or nutritionists to help us work through the tough parts, it's more common that we try and go it alone which may lead to a much bumpier and longer path than we originally planned.
I'm a big proponent of having a team and community surrounding you, whether you're just heading down the path of a healthy and active lifestyle, or if you've been here for awhile but your goals are changing and thus, your approach while at the gym. One of the big players on that team is a personal trainer or group fitness instructor as they are a wealth of knowledge, support, and guidance. If you do choose to go it alone, at least to get started, take the guidance from these fitness instructors and you're sure to be headed in the right direction.
