Dear All My Personal Training Clients:
Have I told you lately that I love you? And by that I mean I love you in the least stalker-ish, most heart-warming kind of way. I love that you talk the big gulp and dive into your first sessions, probably wondering what the hell I will ask you to do and whether you will be able to climb the stairs or lift your blow dryer the next day (Spoiler: You will.)
I love the way you trust me with your bodies and your learning curve about movement. I love the way you keep coming back, session after session, sometimes WAY before it is daylight when the temp hovers at too many degrees below zero and your face hurts as you walk to the studio door.
I love when you can finally smile when you move your body. Watching that moment, after hundreds of sessions or just one appointment never gets old.
I love when you nail a push-up of any kind. Know why? Because then I know that you are strong. Often, stronger than you think you are. I know that your muscles have learned to play well together and you are really starting to get this whole exercise thing, even if you don’t really love push-ups themselves. I love that you do them when I ask you to–so we can both marvel at your strength.
I love when you tell me that you have finally stopped worrying about losing weight and that you are happy that you can run, and you will stay happy as long as that is true. (And, sometimes running isn’t a lifelong thing…..I will be here to help you find the next kind of #movement4joy should the need arise.)
I love laughing with you and solving the world’s problems together for 30 minutes while you are telling me you are ready to sweat, sweat, sweat. (I can make that happen for you, for sure!)
I love hearing you say that you feel safe in my studio when you just need a quiet place to feel the things you are feeling while we move through some gentle stretches with few words.
This is the work I love, and you people are so amazing. If you are not yet part of the group I am addressing in this open letter, are you ready to join this family of Movers 4 Joy?
