Fitness is booming! Today you can find a multitude of great instructors and gyms that deliver cycling, weight lifting, boxing, and everything in between.
Believe it or not, there was a time that I found myself embarrassed to tell people my profession. If conversation shifted at a dinner or house party, “What do you do for a living?” I would gulp, sweat, gasp and then whisper under my breath, “I am a fitness instructor.” When I started in fitness 15 years ago, working as a personal trainer or group fitness teacher was not often thought of as a profession. Back then, one may have worked in fitness as a hobby, to get through college, or maybe even to just help pay off school loans while they waited to get a REAL job. Today, I walk through this bustling, health-conscious city (dressed in my work uniform of lululemon pants, Gap Body shirt, Lucy bra, and Lorna Jane jacket. Guilty!) amazed and excited to see yet another gym, another juice bar, or another cool new place where I can find a community of like-minded people. Now I am proud say that I am a part of a growing industry that continues to shape and shift attitudes, bodies, and minds.
It’s 2015 and time for an industry wide paradigm shift in our commoditized, just do it till you drop, poly/cotton, spandex-blended world (which I love, mind you). As fitness professionals we owe it to our clients, members, and followers to stay committed to being knowledgeable, passionate, and unified. With all the growth and changes in technology and fitness programming the time has come to open our doors to each other and discuss how we can elevate our level of instruction and industry as a whole. Together lets discuss movement as it applies to quality of life. There is room for all of us at the fitness and wellness table who have a mission to make lives better. Let’s realize there is no patent on the lunge or squat, but recognize instead a palette of movement exists that can be artistically blended to create more ways to change lives, have fun, and stay strong.
