After over eight years working with clients, I've realized that we all struggle with the same issues, and I'm not just talking back pain or fatloss. When it comes to feeling good in our bodies, finding time to exercise and accountability are the number one culprits to not working out, as well as not knowing what to do and then not eating properly on top of it. Healthy eating comes back to the issue of time, and this problem of time management is felt keenly by New Yorkers, but definitely is not unique to them.
So how do you teach someone to value the time they make for exercise just as much as they prioritize going to work every day? Our fitness is put on the back burner, much like the pile of dirty laundry hiding in the corner. We'll get to it--our run, our yoga practice, our meal prep--eventually.
I realized during my yoga teacher training that what drew me to yoga was the approach of it being a practice, and I feel that your exercise routine/fitness routine, whatever you wanna call it, would benefit from us approaching it the same way. It takes practice to carve time out of the day to anything, whether it's burpees, meditation, or making the bed. It takes practice to get the perfect kettle bell swing or to hold half moon pose steadily. Building a strong practice in life is what makes us consistent and keeps us healthy and sane.
Whether it's through a face-to-face personal training session, a run coaching program, or an online fitness plan, I aim to help you with your niche of fitness the best way that I can. Week-by-week, we take a look at what's working and what isn't—what's on the docket ahead & what is there to improve, consider, etc., in terms of prioritizing and time management. That is why I am here--to consult--not to boss you around (well, maybe a little, if you need it), but mainly to help you make time for your health, your practice, whatever that may mean to you.
