When I first looked into fitness trackers, my mouth dropped.
The price to get top of the line — exactly what I need as a certified personal trainer — are crazy high! Especially if you really want to know the deep specifics of your health and track your well-being.
But after months of talking about getting a Fitbit Charge HR, one of my friends went ahead and got it for me as a gift. Talk about a swell guy, right?
If you’re anything like me, you know that good music brings out better lifts.
Music is one of my favorite ways to focus on the task at hand: getting stronger! And if you saw me everyday like my family and friends do, you’d know I always have my headphones. Or that I’m always bumping something good over my car stereo.
Mom and Dad told you fruits and veggies will make you grow tall and strong. The dentist told you that candy and soda will give you cavities. The high school track coach told you to eat pasta before the big meet to give you tons of energy the next day.
I see it all too often in the faces of potential clients: the guilt of needing a personal trainer.
Losing weight is hard. You don’t get to eat just whatever you feel like. You have to make time to exercise. Compared to your sedentary life, the active lifestyle requires you to get off your ass.
Add onto all that the responsibilities that come with adulthood.
Having spent some time traveling, I realize that some of the lower end hotels don’t have gyms. And even some higher tier hotels just have lackluster gyms.
So what do you do when you don’t have everything you need to workout?
