So exciting!

Something rather exciting happened last week—I got a job! Yes, an actual job at a great gym about a mile from my doorstep. I couldn't be more thrilled to have joined such an excellent team of personal trainers. So far, my coworkers have been great and I'm really enjoying the atmosphere. The facility itself is loaded with a ton of activities that satisfy just about every interest, and there are plenty of toys to play with during training sessions. Though personal training will be my primary responsibility, I'll also be charged with conducting gym orientations. And someday, I look forward to teaching a class or two.

In fact, as part of my training, I was asked to participate in a few of the group activities. So far, both Studio Sculpt and Group Training have really worked me. Boot Camp is next...I sure will be tired after this week! But I sort of love that feeling, so it's great.

It's funny, a little over a year ago I was making the decision to sign up for classes at Blue Heron Academy. Today, I'm an employed personal trainer and proof that dreams really do come true. It took a few months post-certification for something to really happen, but I never took my eyes off the prize. Which brings me to your daily dose of fit—never lose sight of the prize. Whether it's a weight goal or the finish line at an upcoming road race, if you want it bad enough, just keep your eyes on the prize and you'll find a way to make it yours. Remember that every step counts, so make most of them (because we're not perfect) completely worth it.
