We are approaching the end of January and those few resolutions I made are surprisingly STILL active. That’s huge for me! One of those resolutions I made was to move somehow each day. Notice I didn’t say exercise, that word just makes me want to do the complete opposite for some reason and rebel against all that is healthy and good. I prefer to play mind games with myself and call it as my girlfriend coined it “The Movement”. Pretty good eh?
The hardest part for me is over – the Itchies! If you get these, please read my post about how to survive them. I am doing a little walking and running at least four times a week and now I meet up with a personal trainer! Having a certified personal trainer, or C.P.T in California is as common as Starbucks on every corner. Finding a C.P.T is as simple as googling one in your area, but finding one that is the right fit for your personality and lifestyle isn’t as easy. Fortunately for you I have fantastic friends with fantastic hookups and if you are ready for a new and improved version of yourself than DJ from FF Athletics is your guy!
DJ is a certified personal trainer out of Murrieta, CA with a long list of qualifications. Check THIS out! DJ has 3 years track; 100 meter and 4 by 1, One year coaching Avon H/S Avon CT, USMC combat fitness instructor, Black belt Marine Corps martial arts, 3 years Muay Thai training, 5 years submission grappling and competition, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu blue belt, seven years personal training and 13 years active duty Marines. Basically one certified BADASS!
Impressive? Yes, but that’s not why I chose him. It’s because he’s that little extra push that I need to identify my body’s optimal workout plan and he keeps me accountable without scaring the crap out of me. Many moons ago I was a dancer (no pole involved thank you) and I thought I knew what my body responded to for best results. That was how many years ago and how many babies ago? Exactly. I needed a professional to give me the “low down” on Celeste’s here and now body type and develop a fitness plan to align with it.
I made the resolution for 2013 to step out of the box and do things that may be uncomfortable. Teaming up with DJ was completely out of the box for me but I’m thrilled I did. I feel not only stronger physically but mentally! Plus, the thought of having a rockin’ bod for spring/summer isn’t shabby either.
