One Last Lesson From the Olympics

As I mentioned in a previous post, there's a lot you can learn from Olympians that will help you reach your goals and improve your life.

One thing I didn't mention in that article was coaching. Even though they've be involved in their respective sports for many years, even world class athletes have coaches.

Regardless of whether your goal is...

* getting stronger

* dropping body fat

* improving sports performance or

* preventing osteoporosis

... a well designed program, proper instruction and good form will help you meet those goals safely and effectively.

Although I have clients that do so, you certainly don't have to meet with a trainer every time you work out to get the benefits of professional coaching. Some clients have sessions once a week or once every two weeks and exercise on their own the rest of the time. Most of my members and clients just see me every 4-6 weeks for a new routine.

Unless you love learning about exercise and staying current on the research, why waste time trying to create an effective workout program for yourself? Find a knowledgeable fitness coach and get the most out of your exercise time.

If it's good enough for elite athletes, it's good enough for you.
