This is a sponsored post on behalf of Farmer’s Fridge. I am the queen of convenience, especially when it comes to food. I LOVE taking pictures of it, but could never, in my life, be a recipe-developing food blogger. Most of my meals take less than 20 minutes to make. For a while it even killed me to bake chicken because I felt like it took too long. The only time I spend more than that is when I make an epic cheesecake or some other baking masterpiece, because that I actually enjoy. For anyone else who wants to enjoy… View Post

I don’t think there’s any argument that exercise is good for you. I’m grateful that I’m someone who enjoys exercise and definitely feels the effects of not being able to work at full capacity for two months. I enjoy trying new ways to sweat and I’ve made it part of my career by working as a personal trainer.

I’ve been training clients for about two and a half years now, which is crazy because it feels like yesterday when I was writing posts about prepping for my exam and what I wish I had known beforehand.

It’s been almost two and a half years since I became a personal trainer and in that time, I’ve gotten many questions about it. I wanted to address some of them here and if there are any that I’ve missed, please leave them in the comments and I can write another post! 1. How do you get clients? This is one of the questions I get the most. Building up a client base can take awhile if you’re an independent trainer, which is one of the reasons why many people start out training in larger gyms.

Tomorrow will be 5 weeks that I’ve been sidelined from a stress fracture in my foot. I have a follow up appointment tomorrow and will find out what the next few weeks hold in terms of wearing a boot, healing, and exercise. I’ve been in this injury situation before and although I don’t like it, I know it’s important for me to slow down and let my body heal so that I can get back to doing what I love. In reflecting over the past month, I wanted to share some of the things that have helped me. I’d like… View Post
