The year of 2019 has come to an end, thus marking more than just the end of another year, but the end of a decade and the dawn of a new one: the 2020s. It’s amazing and a little mind boggling to think how fast time is going. Perhaps it has something to do with the busy lifestyle we all lead. For me, usually Christmas and New Years Eve passes by in a blur of family and friend oriented activities. However, this year, it has been quite different: it’s been quiet and low-key, something I honestly don’t mind for a change.
This time of year is a time of reflection and of making resolutions for the New Year, which is one of the reasons I don’t mind being not busy. I’m not into making New Year’s resolutions as I’ve never followed through with them, but I am a firm believer in setting goals that are realistic and attainable. One of the biggest goals that I’ve set for myself with plans (and hopes) to achieve in 2020 is to turn my passion for fitness into a full time career that is both lucrative and rewarding. Though, I am working towards achieving this goal one step at a time.
This year has been full of stress and challenges which caused me to experience a host of emotional and physical setbacks, wreaking havoc on my base level of fitness. So, for that reason, I have decided to dedicate the past two months to building — or should I say, re-building — my own strength as well job shadowing at a local gym. In that time, I’ve connected with, and have been training one client of my own twice a week. While job shadowing has benefited me in some way, doing my own workouts as well as teaching (even though I currently have only one client) is giving me the hands on experience I need to succeed. Beyond that, I’m enjoying every minute of it.
I’ve always been the kind of person who learns best by doing; by just jumping into the deep end of the unknown and pouring my whole heart and soul into mastering the art of teaching fitness classes. And, you know what? It’s going really well so far! In 2020, I’m going to take it to the next level and build One Step Fitness as well as my own level of fitness.
How about you? What is one thing that you hope to achieve in 2020?
I’ve recently started posting videos of myself demonstrating how to safely and effectively do exercises on my Instagram account, @1_step_fit. Check me out and give me a follow. I look forward to connecting there!
