Yes, I’m a Personal Trainer, But I Admit That…

I got the inspiration for this post from personal trainer Taylor, who writes at She has done a series titled, “10 Jaw Dropping Confessions Of A Personal Trainer” and I loved reading her confessions…mostly because I can totally relate!

Sometimes I feel like, as a trainer, I need to live a certain lifestyle when it comes to healthy and fitness…but I definitely have some confessions of my own ;)

Here we go:

I admit that… I have a crazy sweet tooth and “splurge” on a sweet treat 2-3 times per week. Usually something small, like a small cookie, or piece of dark chocolate. It has definitely gotten the best of me though, and there have been times when I just can’t stay away from the Famous Amos cookies in the vending machine at work!

I admit that… I have a love/hate relationship with cardio. Sure, I love to run…but some days I just don’t want to. Though now that it’s warmer I feel like I will run more, but this past winter I had absolutely no desire to run, and I’m totally okay with that. Though my brother, dad and I did get in a good 2 miler yesterday!

I just hate other forms of cardio like the elliptical, biking, stepper, etc. I just get so bored! I’m all about the weightlifting.

I admit that… I will never be a morning person. I have tried SO many times to wake up and work out in the AM but it’s always been a fail. I have slept in my workout clothes, but that has not made me any less apt to hit snooze. I just have way more energy in the evening. Why force something, right?

I admit that… I’m really not a huge fan of vegetables. I’m pretty sure I will never crave them, and I eat them because, well, I have to. I guess there are some I like over others but I can’t think of any that I would say I LOVE. Just sat here staring at the screen trying to think if there’s one I love…nope, I got nothing. Maybe tomatoes?

I admit that… I view the gym as a playground. I love going to the gym to lift. I rarely don’t feel like going due to energy or anything…it’s just something I look forward to every day because I can’t wait to see what my numbers for the day will be. I could probably spend a decent amount of time there, because I like trying new exercises/machines, and challenging myself on different things. I also love trying new classes! It is kind of like a playground for adults right? Or am I just weird…

Which of these things can you relate to?

Do you like veggies? Give me a vegetable suggestion please!

  1. I can relate to most of those!!

    I am sure the gym is just a giant playground for adults…except for the cardio bit, I hate all cardio machines…I like to run, but only outside :-) I also love lifting…although i am not doing as much at the moment as I am training for a 10k

    Mornings are so hard…I can only manage them if I am meeting someone and have no choice!! and veg, yeah, they are ok…and good and everything but the only ones I love are bell peppers…and I think they are technically a fruit…

    ok :-) thank you for writing this…it make me feel like I am not completely crazy training to be a personal trainer!

    • hahah glad you can relate! I also hate cardio machines. Idk how people go to the gym and spend an hour or more on an elliptical..I get bored after 5 min!

      • I really don’t know either!!

        If I am going to do an hour of cardio I will go for a run, other wise it is 5 mins of sprint intervals and on to something more interesting!

        and treadmills are the most terrifying of torture devices!! I am glad I live somewhere it is rarely impossible to run outside (if you don’t mind rain that is…)

  2. Try roasted carrots sprinkled with salt and pepper and then scoop up some hummus!
