Tips and tricks you can use to improve your health and fitness everyday
When I decided to become a certified personal trainer, I did it not only because I wanted to expand my own knowledge of health and fitness, but more so because I wanted a career that would allow me to help others learn how to lead healthier lives.
I studied text books, I took classes and I worked one-on-one with my own trainer to learn about everything from human anatomy to proper exercise form and sports nutrition to coaching techniques.
There was (and still is) so much for me to learn, and while the books taught me the basics, I found that the most important lessons (the ones we can all use in everyday life) were learned after I passed my test and finally began working with clients.
After a few years on the gym floor, I decided I wanted to spread my knowledge of health and fitness even further through another interest of mine—writing.
It’s been a while since I’ve worked with clients of my own, but just like all of the exercise terms I memorized when I was studying for my certification test, during the time I spent as a trainer, a few important lessons about health and fitness were embedded in my brain.
Interestingly enough, as I continue to read and write about health and fitness, the same themes seem to reappear constantly. And the best part about it all is that you can use them to improve your own health and fitness every day.
These are the most important lessons I learned while working in the gym.
