Fitness Motivation – A Trainer’s Guide to Being Fit by Paul Bright

Wouldn’t you want to have a personal trainer to guide you in your exercise activities? Wouldn’t it be totally cool if someone showed up at your doorsteps offering to train you to be healthy for free? Wouldn’t a life/health coach make your diet and weight loss efforts become a lot easier? The answer to all of these questions is YES! Yes, yes, yes. It would be lovely to have a trainer but it is not necessary. Read this article and learn simple ways on how professional trainers help their clients gain better fitness motivation, and in effect remain fit for a lifetime.


The first and most important information trainers tell their clients is to live a healthy lifestyle. Proper diet and regular exercise are really the basic factors that will keep you physically fit. Take time to go to the gym or at least do some exercise at home or in between school or work. Filter your food and take out all the unhealthy stuff you are putting in your body. You don’t need all that fat, salt, and cholesterol!


Staying fit doesn’t only mean having the proportional weight for your height. Your life shouldn’t just be about healthy food and regular exercise. Take time to enjoy yourself. Once in a while, go out and change your daily routine. Have a jog with your spouse, play bowling with friends, go to the salon with your mom – do stuff you like without compromising eating healthy. This will let you enjoy your life more and will even give you a revitalized fitness motivation.


Find ways to relieve yourself from daily stress. Learn to relax and take control because stress and staying fit are closely linked. When not treated or handled right away, stress can cause various body-mind disorders. These disorders maybe anything from dizzy spells, migraines, sleeplessness, and muscle cramps – to more serious effects such as ulcers and digestive disorders, immune related disorders, and cardiovascular ailments. In relieving yourself from stress, think of two ways you can do it: either you change the situation (avoid or alter the stressor) or change your reaction (adapt to the stressor or accept the stressor). Whichever option you choose, put in mind that you are trying to keep yourself fit. No amount of exercise or eating good food will be enough to keep you fit if you stress yourself out.

People from all walks of life dream of having personal trainers to help them with their struggles in weight loss and fitness motivation. Well, you don’t have to have one to get yourself fit and fabulous! Follow this guide, keep a healthy lifestyle, have some fun, and manage stress in your life, and you’re sure to be fit and fab.
