Hire A Trainer…at least once in your life

As a Trainer, I can get lost in my own schedule of managing my clients which can result in subpar intensity levels for my own workouts (even with a massive home gym in my basement). As a new Mommy, my duties at home (coupled with managing my business) has had me feeling overwhelmed at times too so working with another Trainer allows me to mentally shut down, let go of all my stresses for an hour, gives me another set of eyes to assess my own physique/tempo/form/intensity levels, and helps me push far beyond my comfort zone.

It’s back to training and long build for this Mama..time to build the booty☺
