10 Things a Trainer Would Tell You

Not every Life Time client works with a trainer, but we’re there witnessing members’ journeys every day.

Whether in a working relationship or from a gym floor distance, we see the progress and frustration, the struggle and successes. Of course, I’d recommend the services of a Health and Fitness Professional to everyone who comes in our doors. I’ve seen countless clients thrive with the personalized guidance and support.

For those who haven’t worked with a trainer or are on the fence, however, you might wonder what a trainer’s perspective would be on your weight loss process. What basic pointers could a trainer tell you right from the start? What suggestions or stories could he or she share? In the spirit of that exchange, let me offer ten tips from a trainer’s experience.

15 Favorite Blog Posts, 1 Final Message

One of the most satisfying parts of my week for the past few years has been my Saturday morning routine. Most Saturday mornings, I sit down with a cup of coffee and my laptop to begin writing a post or two for the Life Time Weight Loss blog. I’ve always enjoyed this time because it required me to eliminate other distractions and really consider what I wanted to share with the goal of helping others shape their personal nutrition, metabolism, health, fitness, stress, sleep and other lifestyle choices.

While I’ll likely continue my Saturday morning ritual, I’m writing today’s blog post as a final sign-off from the Life Time Weight Loss blog and Flourish newsletter. For the past 12 years, I’ve been blessed with many roles at Life Time. The past few years were particularly satisfying. We’ve been able to develop some of our most cutting-edge programs and best-in-the-market products, many of which are featured here on the Life Time Weight Loss site.
