Ruth here, AKA Ruthless. Thanks for taking a moment to read. I understand we have busy lives and taking time for ourselves can be difficult; for myself included. I applaud you for carving out a little time right now.
Even though I’ve been a personal trainer for almost 20 years, I’m a real person. I don’t live in workout clothes, and fitness doesn’t take over every area of my life. Nor do I think it should for you or my clients.
I exercise because it keeps me strong, happy and feeling good to do all the other things I’d rather be doing. That’s probably one of the things my clients love about me. I’m relatable and I understand real life struggles outside the gym. I approach personal training a bit differently than most trainers I’ve met. Often I share the same feelings toward exercise as my clients; I don’t look forward to being on a treadmill. I like cake, wine and high heels even though I know they are bad for me. There is a balance in it all but most important, I want my clients to enjoy the process of getting and being healthy.
You can bet that feeling good is healthy for you, as is being in a good mood. Consider it healthy to do those things that simply make us happy and feel good. Whether it be dancing while you get dressed (which I do), a hobby or interest, let you be you – and let’s be ‘Ruthless in health’ together!”
