As a busy entrepreneur, your focus is going to be primarily on your business. With so many things to get done, meetings to run, employees to check on, and business lunches to eat, your health and well-being are often last on the list of priorities. This often leads to weight gain and health issues that go with the excess of kilograms. Being the most important person in your field of work is only worth something if you’re also the most important person in your own life.
That being said, it’s imperative to change your exercise routine as soon as possible. No more can your evenings be spent in front of the TV, and no more can there be room for excuses. As an entrepreneur, you know very well that there’s no such thing as no time. It’s only a matter of organization, will power, and determination. You’re a go-getter by nature, so use this trait to your advantage.
Just because you need to exercise doesn’t mean you need to be miserable about it. This is a chance to think outside the box and fix your health all in one.(more…)

Getting Certified in PT
As a certified personal trainer, you can not only meet these professional goals, but you can also put your outgoing personality, communication skills, and motivational strategies to good use by helping others to realize their true potential and meet their fitness goals through targeted training programs.
But before you can get started transforming your clients one physique at a time, you need to obtain the proper certification to practice. If you want to find the one that best suits your personal and professional goals, there are a few things you should consider before you choose.
If you are thinking of moving home soon and you find yourself in possession of a home gym, you’re probably all too aware of the enormity of the task that is ahead for you when it comes to moving everything from your old home to your new one. Just as you don’t want to injure yourself during a workout, you especially don’t want to do any harm to yourself moving your gym equipment without proper care!
2017 presents changes for corporate organizations in terms of employee health and wellness trends. After all, health is an indispensable ingredient that directly impacts a worker’s level of productivity in the workplace.
With so many goals and challenges that companies need to tackle, companies regardless of size and nature need to invest in various strategies that are aimed towards holistically improving employee health. If you are a business owner, manager, or a member of your organization’s HR department, here are 4 trends you need to look out for this year.
However, it’s important to put in mind that no matter the health and wellness strategies you adopt for your workers, what matters most is that they cater to their every need and integrate with their current lifestyles. Let’s get started, shall we?
It is said that you have to spend money to make money, and in the case of business promotion this is generally (but not always) true. Even products that practically market themselves, like the iPhone or iPod, have massive advertising campaigns behind them to ensure that every person on the planet wants to run out and buy them. Of course, you don’t need to spend the millions on advertising that Apple does.
If you’re a personal trainer or you’re running a fitness business (creating workout DVDs and selling related merchandise or running your own gym, for example) you can find means of promotion that don’t necessarily require you to buy air time for advertising on a global scale. What you should do, however, is explore several different avenues of promotion so that you can reach out to the largest possible segment of interested consumers. And here are a few great ways to do just that.
The Personal Training Attitude
Becoming a personal trainer is something that only a select few are suited for. For one thing, it’s not enough to simply enjoy physical fitness yourself, although that is certainly a prerequisite if you want a career you love. You will need to exhibit specific strengths (pardon the pun) in order to excel in such a field.
You’ll definitely have to be committed to keeping yourself in shape; after all, who wants to listen to a personal trainer that isn’t fit? That’s like trusting a driving instructor that’s never been behind the wheel of a car. However, you also need to have the right disposition. If people want to be barked at and ordered around, they’ll join a boot camp class.
It’s the job of a personal trainer to motivate, not command. You need to be patient and nurturing and employ excellent communication skills. And above all, you have to be passionate about helping others become the best version of themselves. But you also need a fair amount of training under your own belt before you can train others if you don’t want to push them too far or cause undue physical harm. As a result, it may take you a little time to become a personal trainer.
