Remember that exam that I told you about a few days ago? Well, the result is in and I am pretty damned satisfied with myself. While this is something that will change my life, it just might change yours as well. That is, if you keep reading my posts and don’t get bored…lol.
So what is this news? Today, I am officially a certified personal trainer. Yep! You read that right. I have been so inspired by my own transformation and even more so by other people’s transformations that I want to do this for a living. I am doing a complete 360 degree turn and changing my career into becoming a fitness professional (I put in my two weeks notice at work yesterday). Oh, those video series are no joke! Those are the same principles I live by to make all the decisions I make in my life.
I believe that this career found me because I wasn’t even looking for a new one. I thought that I would be happy with working in the cancer research field for the rest of my life but then this great new thing happened to me. I can seriously say that I can do these – help people reach their fitness goals, live healthier lifestyles, realize their full potential – for the rest of my life and not complain one bit about any aspect of my job. I know there would be times when it would be challenging but I know that in the long run, it would be a rewarding experience — for me and for those whose lives I touch.
What does this have anything to do with you? Well, when I started blogging about fitness, I always wanted to do some instructional exercise videos instead of writing about them. But, my big issue with that was – I was not a fitness professional. I wasn’t qualified to teach other people how to do exercises for which I am not even sure if I am doing correctly. So, now that I have learned so much (I believe in continued learning though), I can then pass on that knowledge to you – as a professional. This doesn’t make me any better than other fitness bloggers out there as some of them have wwwaayyy more experience than I do but now I am more confident in sharing my knowledge with you. Fitness has always been a part of my life – I just never occurred to me back then that I can have a fulfilling career with it.
Now I know and I hope that you will stay with me in this journey. So, I guess you will be seeing more videos of me in the future – which can be a good thing or bad thing – depending on how you look at it…lol.
