Spring! T'is the season to start shedding!
First, we shed our winter coats and gloves. Then, we shed the thermals and long sleeves- exposing our sun-deprived skin. Oh no! BUT exposing all that skin might also mean shedding a layer or two of winter padding. NOW is the time to shed all of those layers and, with it, the inhibitions of going to the beach or wearing shorts, tank tops, bikinis, muscle shirts!!
You may be asking 'Where do I start now that the temps are rising?'
Whatever your reason for wanting to get in shape, I will commit to helping you achieve your goals. I have countless success stories with brides and grooms who want to get ready for their weddings, with mothers (or fathers!) who want to return to their post baby bodies, and with athletes readying themselves for competition.
Once you have a goal, plan, and/or deadline, you should partner up with someone to see if your plan is realistic. They can help provide feedback on whether anything is missing or over-emphasized in your training.
One good example I encounter with most endurance athletes is a heavy focus on training for mega distances and limited attention to strength and balance. Strength and balance can often be overlooked, but if targeted correctly, can significantly enhance performance. That is the kind of perspective a trainer/partner can bring to your fitness plan!
Lay out a plan that will take you towards your goal. And be ready to recalibrate it as you move forward.
