What's the stress about?

My personal training clients in Chicago may give you a variety of answers when you ask them how they destress: run, meditate, walk the dog, meet with a personal trainer, eat endless plates of pasta at Olive Garden, etc.  No matter the method there tends to be a theme:  a reward system.  This can be especially useful and motivating when making yourself feel better after long hours behind a desk.  Who doesn't want to work for a reward (especially if it's for chocolate)?

Well, the problem is too many.  While being satisfied with the extrinsic rewards like a beer can be rewarding in the short term, you'll eventually feel unsatisfied and search for the next best thing.

Ideally, you want intrinsic rewards-feelings of purpose or accomplishment from your job.  Why is this important?  Because you're worried about distressing.  When doing this, you should consider the root of your stress first.  It will determine how you destress! 



Top 3 Reasons to Hire a Personal Trainer in Chicago

Many people are frustrated with the weight loss process.  What better way to overcome this than to hire a personal trainer in Chicago!  Here are the top 3 reasons why most people hire a Chicago personal trainer:

3.  Conflicting information online:  It's incredibly tough to decipher between what's credible or not online.  A personal trainer in Chicago can help you sift through this overload of information and help you create a fitness structure that makes sense for your body.

2.  It's hard to watch yourself.  Even if you understand the basic mechanics of fitness you can still fall prey to distraction.  A personal trainer will not only recognize any asymmetry, weakness, or disfunction in your movement, he/she will also provide the tools for correcting this problem.

1.  Accountability.  For many of my personal training clients, they wouldn't go to the gym unless it was scheduled.  By hiring a personal trainer, it forces them to schedule time for workouts every week and, most importantly, encourage them to stick to their goals.  After all, personal training clients know that someone will be asking them about their efforts outside of the gym.
