My favorite client story

Last week:
During a training session with a client recently, she received a call from her aging mother {my age LOL} and answered to make sure everything was ok. The client quickly stated that was she at the gym working out and would call back when finished.
After disconnecting, my 30+ year old client said to me, "my parents do not believe that I am working out because I am not and have never been athletic."
I immediately said...yes, you are athletic, which she again denied.
She commented..."maybe down the road I will be but for now I am not athletic."
I considered her response then replied...God doesn't see us as we are, he sees us as we will be. She thought for a moment and agreed saying..."that's true."
I explained, you don't see yourself as an athletic person, but as a trainer, I see you as you are and as you will be. You are athletic and are doing amazing!
This client has been working very hard for months now and has come so far. She is determined to be functionally fit for life but couldn't see she is already well on her way.
Remember...Fit is not a destination. It is a way of life.

My favorite exercise

Running, hiking and resistance training.

My favorite quote

I have many, however here are a couple:
Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.
- Plato, Greek Philosopher

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.
It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up.
It knows that it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve.
It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or a gazelle
when the sun comes up you'd better be running.

(But, unless you're a runner, you won't understand.) -Anon

My training philosophy

Exercise does not have to be drudgery. Find something you enjoy and do it. Life is short. Cherish each moment. Self care is not selfish! Fit is not a destination. It is a way of life. ~ Coach Debbie

“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.” -1 Corinthians 9:24-27
