Why The Perfect Workout Is Perfect For You…

FeaturedWhy The Perfect Workout Is Perfect For You…

If you are becoming more serious about investing into your health and physical being, joining a health club can really help you get started, and stay on track.

At The Perfect Workout, we care about your goals as much as you do, if not more! We understand how challenging it is working out sometimes, we get it, it is not fun, and it is not suppose to be. Instead, we focus on the positives, creating and reaching personal goals, while also being there to support you 100%. You don’t need to be in the studio to talk to us, you can reach out any time and we’ll be there. We know how badly you want to reach your goals, so your time if very valuable to us.

This brings up one of the reasons why The Perfect Workout is perfect. We value your time. Our 20 minute training session is for targeting specific muscle groups while also getting in some cardio. I like to call this the 2 in 1. Unlike other gyms, our private studios are in a clinical setting giving us the space to train one on one without distractions. We are there to help you focus while making sure you’re working out properly. 

Working out properly will get you closer to your goals. And this is another reason why we’re perfect. All of the personal trainers were trained to pay special attention to your form, so we can help you correct it. This allows you to strengthen the muscle without the help of other body parts.

Preventing injuries is at a higher rate because of our super slow technique, and this makes us perfect, because of its safety. You wouldn’t have to worry about high impact workouts, because the machines help intensify the workouts using heavy weights with a low impact method. Going slow allows the muscle to stimulate more effectively, because you’re fighting the momentum at a heavy weight. Imagine powering through the weight using momentum, and not paying attention to your form. This can result in a disaster.

We strive on perfection by implementing our core values: Enlightened Exercise, Teamwork, Candor, Integrity, and Customer Service. We find each and one of these extremely important, and take much pride on achieving these with every single one of our clients.

Additionally, we are personal, so you have support which is one of the most important things to have while making a life change, or simply living an active lifestyle. If you want more information about our program, please go to www.ThePerfectWorkout.com. We also launched a nutrition program, and you don’t have to be a client already to join, or to get more information. 

If interested, go to our website, locate a trainer near you and ask them about the program, or the nutrition program, and we’ll do our part to assist you from there.

Learn To Date Yourself (Be Your Own Boyfriend/Girlfriend)

FeaturedLearn To Date Yourself (Be Your Own Boyfriend/Girlfriend)

I’ve been working on “my bad habits”, and one of them is to not go from one relationship to another. Instead, I’m learning to have a relationship with myself. It’s been awhile to be honest, and it makes me think how much I’ve lost myself being around the wrong people. You wouldn’t lose yourself around the right ones, so that’s why it is important to really learn about yourself, and this includes having a relationship with yourself, first….

Put YOUrself first. This means your priorities, feelings, morals, values, instincts, etc. Whatever is a part of you, shall come first before anyone else’s. Learn to separate that from others. Learn to accept that your responsibility is about YOU. Learn to be a little more selfish. This will eventually allow you to become selfless, when the time is right, and with the right people. Don’t go against the timing of your SelfLove, always have this on the top of your list. Your self love is the ultimate importance of your vision. The other day I posted on IG and explained how it is important to treat yourself, take yourself out, and really begin doing things that you enjoy, even if its alone. One of the other trainers, and myself, was talking about how there is this stigma of having to do things in the company of others, and how we need to change this type of mentality. Why do, why wait, why not? Why do we do this to ourselves? We miss out on opportunities because of the company of someone else. We need to be a bit more assertive to our needs, wants, desires, and we need to be in more control of how we want to approach these things. We only miss out because of ourselves. We don’t need to put that responsibility on someone else, and for what? 

This brings the point to learn to date yourself. Act as if you are the boyfriend/girlfriend of whom you desire, and treat yourself as so. Put that responsibility of being there emotionally, physically, mentally, to yourself. Put the responsibility of support, love, creativity, inspiration, and really motivate yourself as if you are not yourself, know what I mean… Learn about yourself as if you are really dating yourself, get to know yourself a little bit more. I’ve been doing this for almost a year now, and I love it. I’m learning so much about myself that I haven’t realized some of myself before. It is new, and a bit tricky, but keep practicing, and keep yourself busy. When you begin feeling discouraged, use that time to take a break. Unwind, unplug, undo, wherever you are, just unYOU yourself and take a timeout. We can’t expect to go on full speed all the time, and we have to take a break sometimes so we can charge. Just like our phones, you know. Learn to charge your batteries.

Do something different! When I feel like I’m in a funk, or feel discouraged, or maybe a bit overwhelmed, I’ll find something different to do, even if it doesn’t require much. Think of this as a time to go on an adventure. Walk at a new park, read a new book, take yourself out on a date to a place where you haven’t ate before. Or do nothing, and relax.

Give yourself time to really figure YOU out, this will take time, but actually take the time by applying a little more effort into yourself and well-being. You’ll learn more about yourself, and begin admiring others who share these commonalities. 

Practice, Patience, and Perseverance,

Happy 1 Year Anniversary To My Locs!

FeaturedHappy 1 Year Anniversary To My Locs!

I cannot begin to express how grateful I am for my lil babies. I love all 76 of them (I think there’s 76) lol. I plan on counting them again, but anyways….My year was on July 11th. I remember it so clearly too! I’ve always wanted to loc my hair, but I wasn’t too sure on when, and of course you want to make sure you are ready. And I was that day. It was a sudden urge for me to do it and I just went for it!

Look at the progress (happy tears)

 

I must admit the length now is too much lol. I’ve always switched my hairstyles, but most of my favorite and convenient styles were worn short, so this is interesting yet I am happy to try something different. I don’t look forward to going back either, like I’ve said before I like my fro, but I love my locs. The convenience of it alone wins, because I can’t stand having to do my hair every day, especially as a personal trainer. Having a busy schedule works wonders when you’re not all up in your head all the time, and wash day is a breeze!

I still do not use a lot of product, and I wash once or twice a week, and not re-twisting each time either. To be honest, you don’t need to re twist on a schedule, just when you feel you really need it. On average, I probably re-twist every other month. I like the new growth, but when it’s time, you’ll now. You just have to listen to your hair. I still use the VO5 shampoo (clarifying shampoo) and conditioner. I like the VO5 conditioner because it is not thick, and more on the watery side. Now always keep in mind that a journey, is just that, and most importantly it is YOURS, so always do what works for you.

It’s nice to get advice, and ideas from others, but when you figure out something for you, it may or may not work for others. That’s okay, keep embracing your journey and continue to learn. This can go for anything! The focus though is on you, you’ll know what works, and you’ll know what you deserve. A journey for me, is actually about listening to yourself more, and not being moved by distractions or popularity. It’s about finding the pieces to a puzzle, putting them together, and making something beautiful from it….LIFE!

Have fun with it, and live your life happily!

Til next time,
