Make the choice to live a healthier lifestyle today

Print Article

I am sitting at my laptop, which just so happens to be pink-and-white polka dot for a reason. It makes me smile. I also have a zebra print high heel shoes. Why? They make me smile. I have several tubes of my favorite pink lip stick. Why? It makes me smile.

I don’t view my office as a place of work, rather a place that I can make a difference. A place that makes me smile, makes me happy and a place that brings my creative juices alive. It is My office. It is my life.

While there may be a pink girly whimsical side of “Nat the trainer,” there is also a very concerned and compassionate side of me that cares very much for all of my clients. I have a very stern and often black-and-white (no B.S.) approach to what I do (for a reason). I guarantee results and my clients reach their goals.

Health and fitness has, for a long time, been a large part of my life. What I do, day in and day out, is not a job for me, it is a lifestyle and a commitment that I have made.

Anybody, regardless of your current age or weight can choose to be fit. All you need to do is make that initial commitment -— not to your significant other, not to your physician, not to your kids or coworkers or your personal trainer of choice. No.

Make the commitment to you. Then start: Eat well. Exercise well. Live well. Where’s the confusion in that? Do it today … stop goofing off with your life.

If you want to continue being out of shape, tired, overweight and stay on the merry-go-round of blaming others for your condition, then by all means, do nothing.

If you are ready to begin living a healthier lifestyle, I congratulate you in taking the first step toward the new you!
