Today I began my journey to become a fitness professional. I have enrolled in the National Academy of Sports Medicine’s online Certified Personal Trainer program. My husband and I’s low income has proven to be too much for us to handle. He got a second job working with his friends at the baseball field and I felt it was time for me to do something to and so I decided to expanded my education and completely step out of my box and begin this course.
I have no intentions of talking about the course or going into detail about what I’m learning. I simply just want to talk about my struggle of taking a new career path and seeing where it may lead me. I greatly enjoy working out and I enjoy the time I spend with my trainers that I think its without a doubt something I could do as a part time job to hopefully help my husband and I get out of this poor state we’re in.
I have never been the type of person to actually “follow my goals.” I daydream a lot about what it may be like if my husband and I were able to afford a nice new car or build our dream home but daydreaming gets you no where. You have to step out of your box and try something to make it happen. I’m putting all my faith in myself and God. I know I can do anything I set my mind to and I’m going to give that accountability to myself by trying to post in my blog. If I’m the only one to ever read this blog that’s okay. This is more for me than it is for anyone else.
So here goes nothing… I’m now a student of NASM and I’m going to work hard to pass the exam and be certified!
