Trainer Talk Tuesday: Switch It Up

I am a trainer and I hired a trainer. Yes, I hired a trainer to take over my workouts and nutrition for the month so I could benefit professionally from his knowledge and experience and for the challenge. I love Crossfit and have been doing it 5-6 times/week for the past year. But I also know that changing up my routine, doing new exercises in a new format and trying new foods and supplements could take my fitness level and body to a different level I may not reach doing what I'm doing now. It's AMAZING how doing something different can throw your body totally off! I did bicep curls and skullcrushers this week...I haven't done those specific movements in over a year...and I AM SORE!!! I am eating brown rice, yams and oatmeal for the first time in a long time...I was used to a Paleo diet that eliminated grains and dairy.

Am I comfortable? No. I had to ask someone to point out the seated calf raise machine at the gym today...never used it. I'm used to the gym feeling more like a second home. It's taking me awhile to plan ahead meals, I'm not used to using a food scale and my usual "go to's" for snacks are not an option right now.

Am I growing? Absolutely. My body is adapting to change and I know it will reap the benefits. I'm mentally challenged by a whole new routine and fighting the feeling of uncertainty.

If you find yourself unmotivated, at a plateau or even wondering if it's possible to take your body/fitness to a whole new level...switch it up. Try something new. If you've been doing the same exercise routine for more than 8 weeks it's time to get uncomfortable. Join a fitness class, hire a trainer, sign yourself up for a race and can do it!
