A Solid Foundation
I am truly blessed and so lucky to work with a personal trainer! I am learning to do away with those unhealthy and bad habits I have formed in working out over the years. I am relearning the basics to create a good practice that gives me the solid foundation I need for myself, my needs and my whole being. I am discovering that in having a good practice it helps me throughout my day and not just in my work outs!
The greatest lesson I have learned is relying on myself once again! I love having a trainer that listens to my needs, guides me and supports me. I love that my trainer slowly hands my body back to me to educate myself on what my whole being needs! I am learning to form healthier movements, create new muscle memories and form healthier posture and alignment.
Posture and Poses
Posture helps me and my body in so many ways (i.e. breathing, moving, exercising, living, etc.)! I noticed my bad posture turning into good posture within days of being more aware of it. I love being able to correct myself in poses now! I need to listen to my body and its needs or risk injury.
Motions and Movements
I love being more aware of my body and how it moves! I want to do more good than harm to my whole being. I am more aware of healthy motions and movements now! I am still learning how to relieve tension and stress in my body in a more natural way.
Safety and Stability
I am learning how my body moves as well as how to align my body in my motions and movements! It helps me create stability and balance. It helps me with my posture and going into poses. It helps me be more aware of my limitations to move safely!
Strength and Flexibility
I absolutely LOVE discovering my STRONG again! I am building that strength in my muscles and my joints that helps me become more flexible in moving my body. I am more aware of pain and discomfort in order to lessen the risk of injury. I am building endurance not only in my work outs, but in living my daily life too!
Rest and Relaxation
I am enjoying working out two times a week! It gives my body a chance to rest and my muscles and my joints can relax and recover. I make rest and relaxation a part of my workout routine throughout the week. I have even learned that there is a proper way to position my body while sleeping!
