As I have talked about in the past here on this blog, this year back in January I started over in my exercise journey. I have been in various levels of shape over the years and my exercise and fitness routines have been knocked down more than once from health, surgeries, depression and other set backs. But this year seems different. Before I always exercised pretty much for vanity reasons. I wanted to look a certain way and keep my weight in check. This year I switched to exercising for health. I want to be healthy. I want to be stronger. I want to move better. And yes I still want to lose weight and look a certain way in my clothes. But now by having more and different motivations I have made exercise a way of life. I crave exercise and finally understand other people who crave exercise as well. Exercise helps my stress and my mind. It helps with my writing. It gives me energy at the day job. It's helped me heal from an injury that had me using a cane last year. It is slowly changing my life.
With this new found and truer appreciation of exercise, I have been thinking about even making this a side career for me. I have been looking into becoming a certified personal trainer this summer. I would love to really work with others who are coming back from illness or injury in particular. I have even been playing with the idea of starting YouTube channel once I am certified to help people workout in the comfort of their own homes, mostly where I myself like to workout. All of this is still in the planning stages. I am trying to decide where to get my certification from at the moment, so if I have any trainers reading this and who would like to give me some insight on the certification they received, please drop me a message, I would love to hear from you!
