Still working hard at the gym, not seeing the baby weight melt off, and again, I know better. I'm telling myself it's OKAY. But about a month ago, I had my body fat tested at the gym- by the electronic handheld ones, which are not super accurate. But whatever.
I tested it again last week, and I'm down 3%! Within a month, that's pretty good. I'm proving my own point I always tell people- if you're working out hard and eating pretty healthy, the scale might not move, but you are getting leaner and more fit.
And there we go. Progress.
Which brings me to my next quandry, which I need some major input on.
So please comment!
I want to use my degree (BS in exercise science & fitness) and renew my personal training certification!
My national cert just came out with a new program specializing in weight loss, which intrigues me, because I feel like it's pretty simple. But obviously there must be a lot more to learn about the science of weight loss if there's a whole program for it. And let's be honest, most of my clientele in the past have the same goal- losing weight and getting toned.
I actually really want to create a business helping women lose the baby weight because I feel like that's where a lot of people get hung up. And since I've been there (I'm still there!), I can certainly empathize.
So here's my plan- We have an unfinished basement. With plans to finish it probably by the end of this year. I want to section off part for a home gym where I can train clients. And charge less than going to a trainer at a gym.
Does that appeal to women? Would you feel limited (or jipped!) with the equipment that a smaller space would have?
I feel like it'd be less intimidating, because you don't have gym-goers watching you work out.
And since I have kids, and most people I'd train would have kids, scheduling could be a little more flexible, and they could bring them over if they needed to.
Anyway, I'm interested in feedback, ideas, or questions- I want to start setting up a business plan and invest in good equipment but I want to know my potential clientele and their expectations- even if you don't live by me, I'd love to hear your input- basically if you would hire me and what would make it worth it for you!
Obviously fitness is a passion of mine and I've found a lot of satisfaction and pride in helping people meet their goals.
Meanwhile, I'm trying to get back to this kind of shape...
Who's with me?? ;)
Miss those abs. They will reappear one day!
