There are many rewards to being a personal fitness trainer. Fitness trainers come into people’s lives and help them with issues with their bodies and sometimes even their minds. In my personal training business for the last 25 years, I have helped hundreds of people live their lives on their terms. I have help people be able to walk freely and perform their profession at their workplace without any issues such as pain or restriction of movement. There is a great reward for helping people live their lives the way they want them to – free of restrictions.

One of the advantages to being a personal trainer in Florida is that it’s always sunny weather. The favorable weather invites people to live active lifestyles outside, more so than northern weathers or even Midwest weathers, where people are home more often due to the weather. It is very important, in Florida, to have the ability to be active. One of my definitions of activity is the be able to perform any task from exercise, work, or socializing without the restriction of movement and pain.

Now, this is where the magic happens in exercise. Whenever you exercise, one of the requirements is that you must move. There is a great saying that “motion is lotion.” This is very true. Whenever we move, muscles get looser, they move freely because their leverages get coordinated over time, and there’s less pain from the restriction of movement. Many people that have pain tend to stay away from exercise and movement. This is where a valuable fitness trainer comes in hand. Personal trainers can set up fitness programs at home or in apartment complexes that one can perform by themselves or with the personal trainer. The value in a good personal trainer is a game changer in helping people middle-aged or older live active and fulfilling lives. Just a great example of how I have changed a client’s life: My in-home client Lisa is a stay-at-home mom and 52 years old. She had debilitating back pain and was not able to go and run her errands. Her passions were gardening and boating. Since she lives in Delray Beach, Florida, boating is very popular with her and her family. After getting together with her twice a week with my fitness program, she noticed tremendous results almost immediately upon how much confidence she had in the way she moved and was pain-free.
