The Fitness Zone
Personal Training can be addictive, but you must continue to look after yourself as well as your client, achieving a work, life balance, says WA Fitness Coach, Shaun Radford.
When you start seeing clients taking control of their lives and achieving results, it can be exciting and fulfilling, and it's easy to focus all your attention on them. But with the number one rule being, never hurt your client, you must constantly be on your game and be attentive with all your clients. This is why your health and well-being is of the utmost importance also.
The following tips will help you stay on your game as you go through your career.
Exercise regularly yourself, with both cardiovascular and resistance training.
Schedule breaks between clients to allow you to reset, prepare and rehydrate for your next client.
Have regular snacks, and make sure you eat healthy, balanced meals.
Enjoy relaxation days, unwinding with family and friends, grabbing a massage or just relaxing at the beach.
Get adequate sleep, enjoying a full night of uninterrupted sleep to recharge.
Set regular goals, so you stay inspired and fulfilled in your career.
Practice what you preach and you'll be a much better role model and Personal Trainer to your clients!
