I grew up as a physically active child in New Mexico. That was how I “did fitness” for the first 21 years of my life. Walking, riding a bike, playgrounds, Boys Club activities and playing sports year-round. I never thought about training heart rates, body fat, muscle mass, eating right or any of those things growing up. My first requirement for exercise: it has to be fun! You will keep doing exercise you enjoy.
When my football playing career ended after college, I had a problem. What would I do to stay active? Exercise had always come automatically with my lifestyle. Now, I was working behind a desk as an accountant most of the day and I had become sedentary. Except for the occasional memberships on rec sports teams, I was not very active. I gained 30-40 pounds in about 2 months time!
So, I did what many people do. I joined a health club and began to exercise. It seemed like work instead of fun because I had never been a member of a health club. My exercise habits would basically go this way: good workout habits for 3 months, sporadic workout habits for 3 months. I didn’t really pay close attention to my eating habits.
Over my years as an accountant, I would gain and lose that 30-40 pounds depending on my workout habits. I had settled into a routine I was pretty happy with until I started studying to become a personal trainer in 2004 and becoming certified in 2006. Since then, I have helped thousands reach their fat loss and weight loss goals through live one-on-one training, online training and phone consultations.
