As a coach with 8 years of experience training clients from all walks of life, I can tell you I’ve never seen someone make an epic transformation without encountering some roadblocks on their journey. I lost 60lbs of fat along my own fitness journey, but I’ve also experienced injuries, illness, and fluctuations in weight. I’ve been consistently dedicated, and at times, I've lacked motivation.
The point of this blog is to emphasize that progress is not always linear. Similar to a good stock, you'll have both up and down months, but over the years, you will continue to grow. The best personal trainers understand that this journey includes ebbs and flows as a natural part of the process.
After the initial excitement of seeing results wears off, it's the habits you build along the way that will keep you going. Fitness needs to be integrated into our lives, much like brushing our teeth or taking a shower. We don’t always feel like doing it, but it’s a non-negotiable habit we’ve incorporated into our lives (I hope 😊).
So, if you’re reading this and feel like you’ve fallen off the bandwagon, so to speak, give yourself some grace and remember, “You're only one workout away from being back on track."
