ARTICLES: THE OWNERS MANUAL TO YOUR BODY
|By DEBY HARPER
If you purchased a complex computer system, or a new car, you'd expect an operator's manual, so why not an owner's manual to your body? Too often, we manage our bodies by the trial-and-error method, actually causing harm to our bodies. It's almost as if there were some secret to gaining and keeping health, but we can't seem to find it. People who achieve their goals and find success are the people who know themselves.
Lifestyle Insights is a tool that allows you to know yourself
better so you can be confident that you are working with people
that know how to communicate with you in the way that meets
your specific needs.
Have you ever wondered why some people continually start and stop exercising, others stick to one plan forever but never see results, some never start at all, and still others commit to a program and do see results? We all have different sources of motivation and different goals based on our preferred behavioral tendencies. A careful examination of the preferred exercise environment, exercise partners, and other behavioral styles will reveal what works and doesn't for you. With that in mind, if you want to start exercising and improving your lifestyle, it doesn't matter so much where you go, but who you work with once you're there.
The relationship between the wellness/fitness professional and
client can mean the difference between a program that's a quick
start / early fizzle, or a lifelong health habit. Wellness/fitness
professionals affect their clients or members by how they listen,
communicate and interact with each other. One bad experience
can keep people away from exercise for years, so the relationship
developed with the wellness/fitness professional is a key element
in your ongoing commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
Things to consider:
A workout is a wise use of time when it unlocks your own personal power, physically and emotionally. When you finish a workout with a quality instructor, you don't just feel better, you feel better about yourself.
- Exercise during the time of day most conducive to your success and enjoyment.
- Choose an instructor who's able to activate your natural motivators.
- Train your trainer to work with and speak with you in
ways that both encourage and motivate you.
- Know what your wants and needs are, as well as your likes and dislikes.
- Communicate clearly with your trainer and persist until you arrive at a program that's the most comfortable, effective way for you to see results.
