Tuesday Fitness/Health Tip #1

Tip Of The Day!

 

“Go at your own pace”

 

No matter what kind of fitness journey you may be on, be sure to go at your own pace. There is no rush, as long as you are constantly progressing; it doesn’t matter what rate of speed it happens.

A New Week, A New Thought

Bloggers,

I decided to add another fun topic to my blog because well, I wanted to and because there are some things I think would be fun to talk about with within this category. This specific category will be called “Thinking Out Loud” & I will post it on Sundays! basically this will integrate my thoughts for the week, current events (preferably around fitness/health), my opinions on certain things in the industry, it might talk on my experiences or tell a story, it might be discussing things outside of the scope of fitness/health, it could be about anything really that doesn’t already fit into my other categories (which I will name at the end of this post) so hopefully all of you will enjoy it greatly because I am looking forward to it myself. 

 

ALSO…For those of you who may not follow my soundcloud account, I have decided that I also want to add another category based off of my podcast & it will be “Tuesday Fitness/health advice & tips” so I will continue my podcast series but will be adding this to the blog as well now because I want everyone to benefit from this 🙂 Which this basically is going to be me giving you advice & tips and also be answering questions that maybe people have asked me or have for me now that could be helpful for others. 

 

ALSO, ALSO… My podcast is supposed to have interviews, current events, Q & A on Saturdays, but I have been slacking and yet to do that, so not only will that continue (as soon as I find ways to get that going) but WHEN and IF I have time, I will be adding guest post to my blog (which is nothing new) but haven’t done it in a  LONG time. Yikes! sorry.  but this will take place on Saturday’s or Sundays possibly – the way I will go about it, is I just have a list of over 100 DIFFERENT TOPICS I want to write about written down and some are meant for guest post and some are meant for me to write about – so basically if I come to you about writing something for me, it is because I feel like you could be a good person to discuss that particular topic BUT this does not mean I don’t allow people to write guest post otherwise, because I have had people come to me about wanting to guest post (which is fine) but I am just really picky because this blog is my baby! lol so don’t take offense if I don’t accept your topic or request to write a post on my blog, because I like to be choosy because I worked my ass off on this blog like everyone else on theirs. 

 

ALSO, ALSO, ALSO.. LOL.. I have been doing Review Wednesday’s on YouTube (so yes, I will be adding them to the blog regularly on Wed whenever I do them) 

 

So with this all being said and laid out, I am hoping going into this new year, my blog will continue to grow, and give everyone something to read about that they are interested in no matter what journey they are on as far as fitness/health goes.

Why I Chose Exercise Science/Personal Training

The Truth Is..

For some of you, you may not be able to get to the About me Section of my blog and that is perfectly okay because it probably needs updated anyways. I decided to make a more personalized post today since I have been connecting with so many other bloggers who are personal trainers, or health coaches. I love the reasons why people have chosen this profession and i even love the ones who started in this profession but have moved on to something more like nursing or physical therapy and occupational therapy, among other occupations. I think no matter what, you all have chosen to do that profession because you enjoy it – at least I hope so and hope that you if you don’t enjoy it, you find something you do enjoy. 

 

I found that my passion lies with fitness, lies with wanting to be a personal trainer and making the most of it with what I have learned and experiences. I  started off as physical therapy student (which I loved, btw) but soon changed my degree to exercise science and never regretted it yet, although sometimes I was in question about it. For some people, they think of this degree as a dead end, a no go, a pointless achievement but for me, it means I have the power to change someone’s life in a way that is transforming them into better people physically and hopefully building them up mentally as well. Now for starters, this doesn’t mean that I might not go back to school for something more or different if I need to, or decide that I want a change of scenery or if I want a profession that has more benefits, etc – this just means for the time being, personal training is my highest goal. I know this job is hard because most trainers are working part time and having to build a client list while carrying another job and I realize this job can be tiring because you are having to work around a client’s schedule that may be really early in the morning or really late at night but in order to keep them as a client and build rapport, you do it no matter. 

 

In my mind I know this is something I want to do and love watching other trainers with their clients. I want to make a career of this, but I also have given thought about becoming a strength and conditioning coach or perhaps going back to school and going for physical therapy again..and those are ALL things I can do at any point in my life If I choose to. I want to be a personal trainer because I feel as though I have come a long way in myself and I have seen changes that happened gradually and I want to see those changes in others; and if this sounds about right, let me add that I also want to be a personal trainer because I want to be a fitness mogul – someone who isn’t just a person in the world training people but a person who has taken their training to new heights, traveled, well versed with other trainers and professionals in the field, someone who has a general audience they train but specializes in something that makes them stand out among the crowd, someone who has an app that people use because they know it will benefit them, someone who does public speaking/motivational speeches because people love what I have to say and want support, I want a book that I publish; maybe even a series that gives not only the fitness aspect of my life but my development as a person and where my obstacles lie. I want to be able to network with people – nutritionist, doctors, sports medicine professionals, coaches, etc in order to make the best of my job and deliver the best part of me. I have no idea if any of this is possible and if it is, I want it and if it isn’t, well shit I will try anyways. 

 

Being a personal trainer isn’t about looking good, or being strong  – to me, it goes above and beyond that, it is about dedicating your life to making sure that every client feels like they achieved something – achieved something that made them feel better about themselves and their capabilities. I never want a client to feel inferior next to me, I want them to feel like they are my teammate and we both have to do this together if we want to be successful. When I think of everything I hope to do as a personal trainer, I want it to mean something. To some of you this is crazy, impossible, maybe even shocking, and potentially a dream that might never happen – but this is why I chose to graduate in exercise science and why I want to be a personal trainer, this is what I believe in. 

 

P.S for all those who are trainers – feel free to let me know the pros and cons of being a personal trainer, let me know why you chose this occupation, let me know what you think about the fitness industry, let me know if you were a trainer and went on to something more and why you did so, let me know what you think of my reasons, let me know if you prefer working in a gym or being an independent trainer,  tell me everything you know and have learned working as personal trainer. Did you have dreams of training celebs? Do you feel like personal trainers get paid well? Do you feel like it is a growing job choice or dying occupation? do you think exercise science is a dead zone degree? Name other jobs you can get with an exercise science degree, I want to know everything you are willing to share and please feel free to connect with me through social media or email. I love being able to speak with all of you.

5 Ways to stay Motivated

  1. Make goals: simple, smart and realistic goals
  2. have a social circle who motivates you to do well and doesn’t discourage you
  3. Reward yourself for your progress: You deserve it!
  4. Use positive words: “I will, I can, I won’t give up”
  5. Go your own pace, don’t make it a race against someone else, because we don’t want you to feel left behind, we want you to feel like you did better this time vs the last

I know this sounds all too simple, but with motivation is discipline and you need both to make the best out of whatever you do. If you follow these few steps, you will start to see some positive changes within yourself 🙂 Good luck!

The Medical Tag

Thank you doctorinspe for tagging me. This same blogger is the one who came up with this tag in the first place. I am so happy that someone decided to get creative and make their own tag representing their studies – please feel free to check their blog out, it would be awesome if more medical student/professionals would get involved with this tag as well:)

The Questions:

Who are you and where do you study? Good question, I am Shay-lon Moss. I currently study at home, as I have graduated in college and working on getting a certification in a career path I want to do. I may decide to attend college again in the future but taking it one step at a time for now. 

When did you start studying medicine or pre-med courses? Well let’s see when I first started college was after high school, I was going for allied health and venturing into physical therapy for awhile. When I moved back to Ohio, I continued to study physical therapy but then switched my major after reviewing how long it would take for me to be accepted into the physical therapy program (figured I would graduate in something else first and if I wanted to then go back to school for physical therapy, I could and also be working in a field that I want to work in making more money. I ended up graduating in exercise science. 

What made you choose this medical field? It was a plan B to be honest, something I had to prepare myself for in case I didn’t make into the physical therapy program. 

How did you come up with your blog name/username? Let’s be honest, it is generic, no thought into it. I honestly just went with the recommendation because I didn’t really know what to name my blog at the time. Although I will be changing my domain name soon! 

How would you describe your blog? My blog is my personality. It establishes humor when necessary, kind words of inspiration to make someone’s day, and teaches people (something I enjoy doing) in my field. 

What’s your favorite quote?: “Well, what’s up doc?” – Bugs Bunny. Jk. I normally make my own quotes and forget about them down the road, here is one I made up that I like.. “being smart doesn’t mean you know it all” – Shay-lon Moss

Best memory in medical school? The time I never went  to medical school. 

What’s one course you struggled with? Anything that had to do with math, I struggled in EVERY math class, no lie.

What’s your favorite book? Hm, this is tough because I know I have read some good books throughout my life, but can’t think of any off the top of my head right now. 

What do you do in your free time? What free time?! LOL. I like to watch movies or catch up on my series, cooking, going for walks/hiking, traveling to new places (whether in town or outside of town), trying new restaurants, playing video games, playing cards/board games, finding new hobbies because I need some. 

What do you want to major or specialize in? Personal training – more specifically possibly athletes and both men and women. I haven’t thought about what specialty I want yet, but this is necessary if I want to stand out among other trainers. I have given thought to possible strength and conditioning coach as well, so the world can lead me anywhere, I am open to different paths for myself 😀

Who do you look up to? Anyone who has be significant in my life or did something significant for the world. 

How do you study (productively)? Right now I am using notecards I made. They have been helping, my problem is I get distracted when studying so now I have to have my phone on silent and have my TV off and no music and have a quiet place to really focus, and not to mention when my hands are moving (writing something down) I do a better job of studying. 

How do you stay motivated in medical school? Make goals for after med school. 

What are your best tips for future medical students? Drinks tons of caffeine, make friends with the smart kids, never go to parties, work less hours, make huge sacrifices, live with your parents, eat mac and cheese/ramen noodles to save money (PB &J sandwiches for the most amount of saving), wear glasses so smart kids will think you are smart, read more books, raise your hand in class and participate, arrive to class 30 minutes earlier to get the best seat, eat breakfast,  stay away from alcohol, listen to Beethoven while studying, join study groups, take extra credit (even when you don’t need it), take good notes, buy your textbooks, invest in highlighters, be better at math than myself, don’t date anyone – can cause stress & we don’t want that. LOL, tell your siblings to stay out of your bedroom while you are studying, invest into a laptop, take naps, stay up late studying, wake up the first time your alarm goes off, use your computer lab when necessary, score high on SATs/ACTs, take internship programs, don’t be a jackass to your professor – it could cost you your grade, don’t sleep with your married professor to pass the class – it doesn’t make you cool, tell your boss at work you want weekends off to study if possible, do some meditation to clear your mind, drink plenty of water, have a counselor on speed dial in case you get overwhelmed and have a nervous breakdown, don’t get sick, hold your pee during class so you don’t miss anything the professor said, wear comfortable clothing, make friends with the school librarian, & MOST IMPORTANTLY – DON’T FLUNK OUT OF MED SCHOOL 😀 good luck! 

If you are a medical blog, it is your turn to do this tag, and let me know, so I can read it!
