Does A Personal Trainer Need To Be Fit or In Shape To Be Successful? – Infofit

by fitness journalist
Does A Personal Trainer Need To Be Fit? One of the biggest arguments in the personal training community is “does a personal trainer needs to be fit, or in super great shape to be successful?” What does in shape mean? Do you need to be shredded, run marathons, be an uber athlete? What does success look like for a personal trainer? There are differing opinions in the fitness industry on the whether you must look like a fitness model to be a personal trainer or not. However, from the client’s point of view, their trainer simply needs to lead by […]

Bradford personal trainer urges those with anxiety to get help | Bradford Telegraph and Argus

by fitness journalist
Kieran’s struggle began in his teenage years when he would feel “extremely nervous” to meet a friend in town or go to work. Things took a dark turn when he started drinking alcohol to block out the feeling of fear – a dangerous coping mechanism he used up until the age of 29. “This had a bad effect on relationships with friends and family that were around me at this time”, he said. “I became confused by both my depression and anxiety. This coping mechanism wasn’t going to work forever and eventually it did stop working in 2019. “I had […]

Sweating Her Way to SobrietyNell Hurley had her last drink on December 27, 1997 at the age of 27. To help combat her anxiety in early recovery, she started running, taking things at her own pace but working hard to make progress block by block and day by day—much like a recovery journey. Running became an outlet for her as she focused on her sobriety and eventually helped lead her to a new phase of her career. Since first hitting the pavement as a new runner, Nell has run eight marathons, become a certified personal trainer and yoga instructor, and channeled her experiences into Hurley Health, the gym and recovery support program she runs from the basement of her St. Paul home. Not only does she offer a variety of workouts, she also schedules time to check in with her clients both in person before their workout and via text throughout the week to help them on their path. How did your life experiences lead you to founding Hurley Health? I have been in recovery for a long time—over 23 years. I got into recovery when I was 27. For the last 12 years, I’ve had an incredible run of working in the addiction recovery field for nonprofit organizations and Hazelden. I went to work for an organization called the Phoenix, a national nonprofit based out of Denver; it’s a recovery support organization that revolves around physical activity: hiking, biking, yoga, you name it. [After a few years], I went out on my own and started Hurley Health. Can you share how fitness helped you get sober and your relationship with fitness today? I have a really broad background in fitness. I’m a certified yoga instructor, Crossfit instructor and personal trainer through the National Association of Sports Medicine. [When I started recovery,] I joined a 12-step group and a running club right around the same time, and for me it was the combination of those two things. I had a lot of anxiety in early recovery; I was using alcohol as a way to deal with anxiety and just didn’t have great coping skills for anxiety and depression. When I started running, that was a great outlet. I started from nothing—I could only run one block, walk a block, or run for a minute and walk for five minutes. It was hard but I kept doing it. Almost 24 years later, I’m still doing both of those things. I go to 12-step meetings once a week … I like the support and community I find there. I just ran the Twin Cities Marathon. It’s still my medicine for coping with stress and anxiety. Tell me more about Hurley Health. How does the program work, and who is it best for? It’s a very unique business model in that I combine fitness with recovery coaching. I work with people all along the spectrum of substance use, but the population that I’m honing in is what I call “grey area drinking”: people who are not alcoholic, who wouldn’t be appropriate for treatment or AA, detox, or any clinical model. They are drinking at a level that is harmful or hazardous [to their health] or they’re just feeling like they’re drinking too much. Recovery coaching is very different from being a drug and counselor or a medical model-based clinician. Recovery coaching is more like life coaching with substance use as part of the conversation. The person that I’m working with sets their own goals around what they want their substance use to look like, then I support them in their goals. I act as an accountability buddy … and help them develop new habits. I do 75-minute sessions so we have time to do a recovery check-in. [I ask clients], “How was your week? What came up for you as you abstained from substance use this week? What was that like?” We sit down and talk for 15 to 20 minutes, then we do a workout together. I also do accountability texting between weekly sessions. I love being able to provide support. It’s about learning new habits, a new way to live. Many people are becoming “sober curious,” either cutting down on drinking or stopping completely, and the conversation around alcohol is changing. Why do you think that is? There’s a big swath of the population that is drinking too much. It’s a very personal thing—your drinking too much might be different from my drinking too much. Because of the pandemic, people are home more and a bottle of wine or a bottle of beer is right within arm’s reach, and there’s so much uncertainty and added stress in the world. As a society in some ways we’re getting sicker; the world is just more connected, everything is faster, harder. In other ways, there’s more awareness around health and healthy living. I see two things happening at the same time: one is that there’s this pro-alcohol culture. Alcohol is everywhere and it’s very normal for it to be at every single event: the Super Bowl, holiday parties, work happy hours … baby showers, kids birthday parties. Two, there’s more of a push toward healthy living: yoga, meditation, the Whole 30, sugar cleanses. With social media, there’s more access to that as a trend, and the sober curious thing falls into that. From a health standpoint it’s becoming more acceptable to say no to alcohol. When I first got sober 23 years ago, I was so nervous about going to work functions where someone might offer me alcohol because I thought it was so weird to say no. It’s becoming more and more acceptable to just say no thanks and not have to explain. – Mpls.St.Paul Magazine

How to Stop Falling Over During Lunges, According to a Certified Personal Trainer

by fitness journalist
I don’t show a lot of love to lunges in my lower-body workouts, and it’s not because I don’t want to feel the burn or see the booty-toning benefits. The unfortunate truth is when I do step back (or forward) for a lunge, I have a habit of falling over. Not every time, but enough to make me wary of looking stupid in a crowded gym or getting hurt. Balance has never been my strong suit, but in an effort to improve my fitness weaknesses, I reached out to Equinox trainer Ali Cernea-Novac, CFSC, NCSF-CPT, for advice. Her first tip? […]

A Personal Trainer on Working Out to Feel “Less Captive” to Fibromyalgia

by fitness journalist
“I never avoid a movement – I just figure out how I can perform that movement in a more functional way for my body,” Morgan Rees, an LA-based ACE-certified personal trainer, fitness nutrition specialist, and health coach with fibromyalgia, explains. The chronic condition can make maintaining an active lifestyle challenging – a reality Rees knows all too well – but, she can’t stress enough how important it is to keep moving. In Rees’ case, her muscles can become rigid and inflamed, and her skin can be sensitive to touch due to extra nerve endings, reduced blood flow, and even neuropathy […]
