Personal Trainer

For the first time in my life I have been working with a personal trainer. I've recommended his blog to you before, Erik Hansen. I'm really enjoying the experience. And at the heart of this experience is the relationship I am building with Erik. As a neophyte to all this, it strikes me that the relationship you have with a personal trainer should be as intimate as the one you have with your close friends, your work mentors, and your priest! I have complete confidence in Erik. I have no doubts about him. I know he will push me as far as we are both able to go. I also know he recognizes when I have had a big night out and I'm not feeling too flash, or when I'm rehabilitating an injury. We're on the same wavelength emotionally and spiritually, and it really makes a difference to my performance.

If you are considering investing in a personal trainer, make sure it is someone you like and trust.

Is it wrong that after reading about your blossoming relationship with Erik, I felt incredibly jealous? One of his clients is Eva 'Lovemark' Mendes! Mind, body and spirit in full flow there!!! Good job.

On a serious note, I found Erik's blog fun and insightful (as well as eye-popping!) and will be 'adding' it to my collection. I've been training religiously for the last few months so I'll stay tuned for more inspiration...
