Original Article : 4 WAYS TO KEEP YOUR BODY IN “TRAINER’S” SHAPE

How many workouts did you get in last week? How intense were they? Were you able to do cardio and resistance training? Did you stretch? These might be questions that we ask our clients but we need to address these items ourselves. In order to be an effectual trainer or instructor we must make time for our own fitness. Our clients will look to us as role models and it’s essential that we demonstrate a fit lifestyle. This doesn’t mean that we have to do everything perfectly but we do need to “practice what we preach”.
I know personally that the pressures of our daily lives can get us off our workout schedule but we have to make it a priority. I’ve always felt very fortunate that exercise has always been a part of my job. Early in my career I owned a dance studio so I got in hours of exercise almost every day. Then I became a college professor and originally taught face-to-face health and wellness lecture courses along with movement classes like Modern Dance and Aerobic Fitness. As I transitioned to teaching totally online it became more challenging to get my own workouts in. So, I came up with a few ideas that helped me and I hope they will help you too.
