Trainers Confessions

What I Wish I’d Known

For years, becoming more physically fit has topped this nation’s list of New Year’s resolutions. Of course, the next consideration is how to go about achieving that goal. So, we recently asked three area fitness trainers the question, “What do you wish you’d known before you began your fitness journey?”

“Finding a fitness community with accountability and encouragement will lead to faster results with 
more enjoyment along the way.”

“Of many things that I’ve learned along my fitness journey, the one that stands out the most is diet. 
Looking at food as fuel rather than gratification makes it easier to keep the diet clean.”

“Being healthy and fit is a lifestyle, requiring full-time commitment. It consists of a well-rounded 
routine of several components that 
enhance daily living.”
