What works for one may not work for all…

November 30, 2012

Happy Holidays! They seem to come around so quickly!

I’ve realized that when I started out in the fitness industry, I was a young 20-something who thought she knew it all. I would freely lecture people on topics I felt strongly about and I honestly thought that most of my beliefs were the only “way”. How immature I was! If I only knew then what I know now. Not that I even know a fraction of what I want to learn in this lifetime, but now, my belief system is much more relaxed.

This is coming from a place of seeing so many people on the internet (not excluding myself) and in real life argue about what type of eating/exercise/living/lifestyle is best for health and longevity. Paleo, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, low carb, high protein, high intensity interval training, yoga, heavy weights, light weights….there are so many options out there! And my belief is that you must choose what is best for you! I will always be an advocate of natural, unprocessed eating plus a moderate exercise program which includes cardiovascular exercise, resistance training, and stretching. But again, what works for me may not work for the next person, which is why I no longer take such a narrow minded point of view with any health and fitness topics. I am always open to learning more and correcting myself when I’m wrong. As a personal trainer, it’s so important to really hear what your clients needs are and what program (exercise and diet) will work best for them, instead of choosing a program that you favor. It’s truly about the client!

That being said, choose the way that you feel is best for you.

Stay safe this holiday season!
