While I’m on the subject, there is one thing that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, and that’s the idea of getting a personal training fitness coach. Recently, I’ve kind of been feeling like I hit a wall with my training, and I don’t really know how I should proceed.
I like my routine, I like going to the gym, I really like doing The Vertue Method and PIIT 28 every week, but I still feel like I need to change something to up my game, especially at the gym. Even if every time I can lift a little more seems like a mini victory, I don’t actually feel any stronger than before, you know? I know I’ve built some muscle, but there are still so many things that I’d like to be able to do that I can’t do yet – I need more strength, and more self confidence as well.
