Personal Training: Helping a Friend day eight

personal-training

Hello bloggers!

Today was another day at the gym with John, although his sibling did not make it today :/ But from what he told me, she will be in later this evening and perhaps meet with me Thursday. I am happy she is considering getting another gym membership at the gym we attend, it will definitely help motivate her! 

Today our workout was the same exact workout as yesterday, the only thing I noticed different today was John was reducing his speed on the treadmill today when yesterday he had not. I asked him about it and he mentioned that both his ankles hurt today for whatever reason and today felt like it was a harder day. After the workout, he said his ankles weren’t hurting anymore, but I am hoping this isn’t a serious issue, if so, we may need to consider other options. With this being said, I don’t think he is ready to do 4.0 for 45 minutes all the way through yet, until I know more about his ankles, and until I can trust that he is starting to increase cardiovascular wise, which I do look for. I think his ankle situation is fine though, considering he wasn’t worried about it and he has had soreness before and it went away fine. I will be sure to keep a keen eye on him during the exercises. 

John mentioned how he needs to work on his eating habits, which hopefully he has a plan set in place, I didn’t have a chance to speak to him about it in depth because he had places to go, but tomorrow I am hoping we will so he can get on track with that as well. I want him to see results and build confidence within himself.  We shall see what tomorrow consist of, we are having day nine tomorrow, wish him luck! 

Your fitness blogger,

P.S my right calf still hurts, and I haven’t done any weight training on it, to prevent further injury, not sure what is wrong with it, but hopefully it heals 100 percent within the next couple of days, if not, I am not going to be a happy camper.

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon
