Exercise has always been a major element of my life. At the ripe old age of 11, my father flooded the lower level of our house with tons of exercise equipment. I remember watching my older brothers workout with my father, wishing I could do the same. Finally, when old enough, I began to use the equipment as well. I loved the way I felt while working out, and ever since that moment, I knew that fitness was the path for me.
After graduating from James Madison University, where I studied exercise science and nutrition, I got certified as a personal trainer through ACE (American Council on Exercise), and began personal training. I loved creating workouts for my clients, challenging them, and helping them reach goals that they thought were unattainable. Nothing satisfies you more as a personal trainer than seeing your client’s body change, and that smile on their face when they have to purchase a new wardrobe. I knew in my heart that personal training, and helping people achieve their goals, was the life for me.
As I became busier with my profession, I noticed something for the first time in my life. It was a very weird realization for me, as I have always loved working out, and have not missed a week of exercise since I was 13. I didn’t want to go to the gym! I would often times come home tired, and not feel like going out. I would eventually get my butt to the gym, but my head wouldn’t be in it. I’d feel tired, unmotivated, and questioned what I was even doing there. I thought to myself, wait a minute here. What is going on? I love working out, yet I have a tough time getting up and going to the gym. I realized, at that moment, that so many of us are busy, it just gets too hard sometimes to leave home and go work out. We all know how important it is, but sometimes it is just so hard.
Then one night, after a long day, I found myself watching the television like I always did when I got home. I thought to myself, “I just don’t feel like doing it today. I wish I could just workout at home, and get a great workout.” It was then that the idea for Every Body’s Personal Trainer hit me. Why should people have to leave the comfort of their home to get a great workout? Why can’t they have a personal trainer come to their home to work them out?
There are so many reasons not to exercise. Too tired, too much to do, the kids need to be fed, you name it. The problem is, unless you workout, and workout on a consistent basis, you will never get the results that you want. Having an in-home personal trainer eliminates all of these excuses. Having an in-home personal trainer, you have an appointment. You KNOW you will be working out. It gives you accountability. Not only that, but your workouts are more fun. How many of us are sick and tired of doing the same thing, over and over again, and getting no where?
Having an in-home personal trainer will keep you motivated, and get you the results you want in the comfort of your own home. No more excuses! Everybody has the potential, sometimes we just need a little help. Why should you have to get dressed up, and drive to the gym. Most gyms smell bad anyway 🙂 With Every Body’s Personal Trainer, you can have the best personal trainers money can buy, meet you at your home.
