10 years ago you’d probably find me in Mcdonalds, KFC or burger king every other day of the week. I had a serious sugar addiction (particularly sweets and energy drinks.) Alcohol dependency was serious. I smoked. I was partying all the time. I was anxious and depressed because of all these things. I was digging myself an early grave.
Luck came when I got a new job which meant I had some spare cash. I was seriously unhappy with the way I looked and felt. I had recently had an incident in the Hnm changing rooms where I had burst into tears! So I decided to check out some local PT’s.
I remember his sales pitch when he told me the cost. HOW MUCH?! I went home and told him I’d think about it. I was a little put off. Upon reflection, if I’d known how it was going to change me, I would have paid more.
I thought and then I thought some more. I continued to think about how nice it would be to be comfortable in my own skin, to feel fresh and healthy and to rid some of my anxieties.
Previously I had joined gyms and done the typical thing where you smash all the cardio machines. Monday – Treadmill. Tuesday – Cross trainer. Wednesday – Rower and so forth.
This always got so tedious I would get into it for a few weeks but then the boredom sets in. Then you stop because no changes are happening. I was too scared to pick up any dumbbells but was always jealous of the strong girls in the gym who did.
When I finally decided to hire my PT, my world completely changed. I now had something else to focus my addictive personality on to. Something that was going to benefit me and make me a better person. When I saw quick results from weight lifting, that was it. I haven’t looked back and it’s now been 7 years.
I’ve since made my passion my career and I’ve never looked back. I absolutely LOVE being that person that now does all the above for others. Showing them how to lift correctly, motivating them through workouts, helping them push out the last few reps, showing them how good diet and exercise helps mental health and guiding them with their nutrition. I also love the chats and the laughs. I feel like my clients become my friends and I wouldn’t change it.
