AND NEVER MISS A NEW POST
By Shane Young | October 17, 2017 |
Being an instructor brings me so much joy and fulfillment, it doesn’t feel like a job. And not having to work behind a desk anymore is pretty awesome, too! One of my favorite things about being a trainer is being able to witness the progression in each of my client’s strength. Its incredible to see how capable the human body is and how much it can adapt. Watching clients hit personal records – seeing ladies who couldn’t do a single pull-up hit 5 in a row – is pretty freakin awesome.
The story of my personal fitness journey is quite ironic. In college, I had the love of my life (at the time) end a relationship because I hated to do anything active – this included going to the gym, hiking, walking more than 10 feet from my car to the mall, you name it. I had never run a mile, I had never gotten the euphoric high after a heavy squat session. It wasn’t till that breakup happened that I really took a long look in the mirror – and said to myself – why CAN’T you like that stuff? Maybe you SHOULD try it?
I let go of fear and took my first training session and fell in love. It’s been 10 years since then and I can’t begin to tell you how thankful I am that I once got dumped for not loving fitness. SO – moral of my story – it doesn’t matter who you are, when you start – how in shape or not in shape you are – start somewhere! We were all beginners at one point and there’s nowhere to go but up on the journey to health.
