Iíve tried to be good this year. I help my
family and friends when they need me. I get all of
my work done on time. I do all I can for everyone
else. For Christmas I would like lower blood
pressure & cholesterol, less stress, better
mobility, stronger bones and muscles, to lose weight
and yes, MORE ENERGY. Something else I would like is
someone to teach me how to improve my nutrition
Does this sound like a letter you might write to
Santa? If it does, donít feel bad: hundreds of
other people just like you feel the same way. Well,
help is as close as a phone and now is the time to
reach for it.
For years, when my husband asked me what I wanted
for Christmas or my birthday, I would say "a
personal trainer." I always thought I could not
afford one, but I could. I needed someone to lead me
through each step and tell me exactly what to do.
Thatís just the help I got. Now, as a personal
trainer myself, I realize the financial concern of
people and have set costs that are affordable. Just
think how much you have spent on those diets and
gimmicks that didnít work. This will work, if you
commit to it and it will be worth every penny by
improving your health as well as your appearance and
Over the years, I tried every diet, every diet
aid, fad, and miracle. Of course, nothing worked.
The only real way to lose weight, keep it off, and
improve your eating habits is the old-fashioned wayó
to develop a healthy eating and exercise program.
There is no quick fix. The weight and health
problems did not develop overnight and they can not
be corrected overnight. By consulting with a
trainer, you will learn the proper form and
necessary information to exercise on your own and be
able to maintain and keep improving. Exercise is not
as hard a s you may think and can even become fun
and something you look forward to.
Start out this holiday season with a healthy outlook and carry it into the new year.
