Pat, with all the media talk about fitness, wellness, diet and any other "magic potions" to help improve health and looks--is there anything from a fundamental point of view that you would recommend to our readers who want to get "healthier"?   

 First of all, there are no “magic potions.”  Its very fundamental but difficult at the same time.  Dieting and hard work are the only ways to become physically fit.  I would just encourage people  to be more active and try to eat healthier  For the most of us, the stress of everyday life makes it very difficult to find the time or the motivation to start a fitness program. The truth is, the thing we keep putting off the very thing that would help relieve some of that daily stress.

  I would suggest starting slowly by walking 3-5 days a week. Start with a 30-45 minute walk.  Also you should start a structured nutrition program.  Keep  it simple. Balanced diet and portion control. Cut out bad habits (eg. Soda,sweets and sodium).  This simple health and fitness regimen will start you on your way to a healthier lifestyle.  The key is consistency.  You have to make it a priority, for now.  After awhile it will be routine and much easier to work with.



Why personal training?

    From my experience, two types of people generally to to visit me.  First are those who just don’t know what to do.  Second are those who need an appointment to workout, they need a structured schedule. 

 If you are a beginner, it is very important to receive the proper guidance in order to achieve to optimum goals and to prevent injury.  Your trainer will give you proper mechanics, nutritional guidance and structured programs to follow. 

 If you are the kind of person that is experienced but lets the daily grind keep your from your fitness program, then having a set appointment every week would be a way to keep you on track.
