Life is hectic and often involves juggling work, family, and social life each and every day.
It may seem like the last thing you have time for, is to think about getting fit!
Why Should Getting Fit Be At The Top Of The List?
There is one simple fact that many of us can easily forget; a fitter version of ourselves will be able to cope with everything else in life more positively, with more energy and in a better state of mind.
Of course, we shouldn’t forget to mention that getting fit helps us to lose weight, stay within a healthy weight range, avoid medical problems, develop better stamina and release lots of the feel-good endorphin.
How Can I Get Started In Getting Fit?
Getting the motivation to actually get started, as well as the ‘will power’ to keep up with your fitness training, can seem like a mission impossible.
That’s why wherever you live, whether it be London, York or Whitby fitness instructors are one of the best methods in pointing yourself in the right direction.
How Can I Choose A Great Fitness Instructor?
Wherever you live, you’ll see plenty of advertisements, so whether it’s, ‘Whitby fitness gurus’, or ‘Liverpool health experts’, one thing is certain; there are plenty to choose from.
1. Set Your Budget Before You Make Any Contact
This step is crucial. As soon as you start talking with a fitness instructor there is a high chance that the benefit of the whole process will dawn on you and you’ll feel you should pay whatever they happen to be asking.
Rather than fall into this trap, do your homework and find out the price range for fitness instructors in your area (they may vary significantly), next decide what you can afford to pay and set that as your budget.
Now once you start making contact with potential instructors, begin the conversation by asking them to confirm their rates. If they are out of budget politely decline and move on to the next one.
2. Choose Someone You Click With, But Remember A Little Healthy Fear Is A Good Thing
There is much more chance that you will stick with a fitness program if you have a good rapport with the instructor. After all, you are going to be spending a considerable amount of time with them!
They don’t need to feel like your long lost soul mate, in fact, this may actually not be in your best interest, but you should at least feel a solid click with them.
Remember you’re not looking for a friend, you want someone who can push you to reach your goals. So if the instructor instills a little healthy fear in you, it may be a blessing in disguise.
3. Consider Partnering Up With A Friend
This tip has good and bad points. The negative side is that the instructor will not be giving their full attention to your personal and individual needs if this is important to you then ignore this tip.
On the other hand, teaming up with a friend can give the moral support and encouragement to keep going, even when it’s pouring down outside and you’d love to cozy up by the fire!
Certainly getting and staying healthy has many advantages, including emotional, physical and mental benefit.
A great way to get started is to choose a fitness instructor who is within your budget, has a personality you click with and may be willing to create a program for you and a friend.
