Do you know when it’s best for you to go hard or easy when you exercise or try to improve your health?
I started thinking about this recently while teaching fitness to my older adults.
I learn so much from them – specifically how we can best move, eat and stay mindful so that we live a long and vibrant life.
Let’s face it – now our world gives us so much stress and depletes our energy that living our healthiest self is challenging!
But, how do we know when it’s good to push ourselves in a workout, with our nutrition, in our life…? Or what tells us it might be better to slow down?
The other day, I learned that one of the gentlemen where I teach tried to get his own chair from a stack. He fell. These chairs are heavy and very awkward to lift and move. So many of my students in my class try to do this – they want to stay independent and prove their strength so they try to carry a very heavy chair from the stack and/or grab weights much too heavy for them. But, I don’t let them!
When I came to my class I noticed one of the men was missing. Jack. My heart sank because I knew Jack – who always shows up for my class – took the fall.
This got me thinking about how much we all either push ourselves too much like Jack and perhaps take a fall or take it too easy (stay on the couch watching Netflix too much instead of going to that exercise class, for example).
And, it got me thinking about how important it is that we have a coach – someone who can and knows when it is the right time to cheer us gently and kindly so that we can push ourselves and/or reminds us to take it easy, go slow and stay present instead.
I’ve coached hundreds of people of all ages as well as I’ve been coached for my health, business and personal development. Like Serina Williams who wants to improve her tennis game and has a coach to do so – I have coaches to help me better my life.
I can’t imagine not having my tribe – my village of experts who guide and lift me up.
What about you? Do you have a coach?
If you want to to feel and be your healthiest self with no fad diets and/or supplements – and you specifically want to;
- Maintain your ideal weight,

- Feel energetic instead of depleted
- Be more confident that what you are eating and how you are exercising is setting you up to live a long and vibrant life
- Digest your food optimally – YES this means at least 1-2 quality poops PER day.
