First, lets look at your age and occupation. I will use myself as an example. Remember when 33 was old and you were never going to be that old? Well, that's me now! Monday-Friday I am a Personal Trainer, leading TaiChi, Balance class, Mobility class. as well as Personal Training clients.
Second, look at the demands of the job. Right now, most of the classes that I teach requires muscle endurance to run a successful class. Following every class will be a 5-10 minute cool down.
Third and the most overlooked aspect of every job is the amount of stress that will be applied emotionally. This is what I mean. Take a look at a gas attendant and compare the stress level of a police officer in a high crime area. Very different. Emotional Wellness plays a huge part of your total health makeup.
O.K. How does this pertain to health? These are just a couple of questions to answer to fully evaluate your own personal health but a good start. Now, lets get to the fun stuff. Looking at my profile, I am 33 years old, Personal Trainer, teach many classes throughout the week and sometimes with stress. What would be a good program for me? This is the answer that you are looking for. Not the media hype. Not what the latest DVD says. And not what other people think. You make your own health and wellness goals, standards, and achievements. As a Personal Trainer, I will help you reach your goal, but the goal has to be the one that you set. The take away message is important, make life your own. Never give up. Life is what you put in to it.
Remember. build on yesterday and dream about tomorrow. As I go through the journey of health with you, evaluate where you are in life. You will learn how to acknowledge these issues and deal with them to define your own definition of health.
Health is not a number, nor is it a dollar sign,
