When life gets hard, train for it

I think one of the most difficult things to do is to change your life, especially mid-stream. It takes discipline, consistency, a sobering understanding of your weaknesses and the realization of some gnawing unhappiness inside–whether it be in body or in mind.

The weight room has always provided a place for me to work out problems and stress, set new goals and realize them so that I rebuild myself every time that I’ve had to reinvent myself. It’s the only place I can go to feel stronger instantly. In my 27 years of training, I watched women jump the hurdles of life–divorce, depression, loss, toxic relationships and balancing family work and children–as well as self-esteem. Finding time for much needed self-care becomes difficult. During this observation, I found my passion for training the over-30 female client. Weight training has been my “go to,” and, while there are no guarantees in life, there are massive personal gains with hard work and discipline in the weight room.

If there is one thing I know for sure, strength training has prepared me for those harder things, balanced me during times of stress and strengthened me when I felt weak. While their are tons of fads, fitness trends and new diets, one steadfast rule that has carried me through these hard times is that, when life gets hard, train for it.
