Change It Up and Ask For Help

I’m sure you’ve heard at least once how important it is to change up your fitness routine. The theory of muscle confusion has reached the vernacular by now and most people seem to know they should try and avoid homeostasis. I do believe this theory is true and I myself have experienced the value of changing it up and challenging the body. However, it’s one thing to understand a theory…its a whole different thing to put it into practice!

Recently, I realized I was so busy caring for all of my clients that I hadn’t stopped to plan for myself. I was sorta just scrambling to squeeze any workout in and not really focusing on sculpting my body. Therefore, I wasn’t getting the results that I wanted. I decided to hire a colleague of mine, Kendall Lou Schmidt, to design a plan for me. Kendall got me back to where it all began for me: weight lifting 5X/week combined with high intensity cardio training.

Honestly, I have to admit I was very proud of myself when I hired her. It felt like it took courage and humility to get guidance from another fitness professional. To really leave all of what I thought was “right” and be open to another person’s ideas. But boy am I glad I did! Within a month, Kendall’s plan helped me to lose inches all over my body. I am refocused and my mindset is determined, as I don’t want to let her down. I also now got a glimpse into my client’s world as I see how they must feel when I train them. Even trainers need trainers!

This whole experience has been so eye opening to me. I’ve learned so much about my body and what it is capable of. I also really learned the value of asking for help. There is not one elite athlete that doesn’t have a coach, and although I’m not sure of the statistics, I’m betting most successful people in any area of life have an advisor or mentor.

Maybe you’re the cardio junkie who sticks to the treadmill or elliptical. Or maybe you’re a yoga fanatic or Pilates fiend. I strongly encourage you to switch it up, try a new plan for a while and maybe even hire someone to help you for a short period of time.

And you know I’m always there for you with all of the free stuff here on my site or through Facebook/Twitter/email…I love to hear from you!!!

So keep it fresh, mix it up, and GET MOVING!

    I drop a leave a response each time I especially enjoy a post on a website or I have something to add to the conversation. Usually it is caused by the passion communicated in the article I looked at. And on this article CF Colors v 2.1, Post Formats Admin UI v1.3.1, and Social v2.10 : I was excited enough to drop a commenta response ;) I do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it simply me or does it look like like some of these remarks come across as if they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I’d like to follow you. Could you make a list all of your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thank you! prob olja ГҐterfГ¶rsГ¤ljare

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Many thanks nyttiga popcorn recept
