Austin can be a dangerous place for someone trying to stay get or stay fit.
As soon as I moved here I immediately noticed that all the bars on my block were full 6 days a week, an abundance of craft breweries, and taco trucks on every corner. With all the great food, beer, and the general culture of casual drinking, this city makes it easy to have fun, but difficult to stay healthy.
I often joke Austin is tough to be a trainer because all of the unhealthy temptations, but in reality it’s one of the best places because the citizens are driven, health-conscious, yet are unapologetic about the fun they have on weekends (and often all the days in between). Most of my clients are open about the fact that they won’t totally cut out their happy hours and tacos, but still want to look and feel good. Personal training is a way for the people of Austin to stay on track and have the best of both worlds.
“Damage control” is a key phrase I use with clients who cannot avoid the company meals, happy hours, and travel that accompanies their jobs. I utilize online platforms to keep my clients on track while traveling and deliver meal plans. Even if someone can’t diligently stick with their diet plan while eating out or on the road, I provide nutritional guidelines that they can follow so they don’t fall too far off track.
In addition to people’s busy schedules and the distractions that come from living in Austin, staying fit in this city is a priority due to all the outdoor activities people like to engage in. Since the weather stays warm almost all year round, people are always outside and rarely covered up. Having someone there to make sure you stay consistent with your workouts, are getting the most out of them, and help you keep your diet in check helps people feel comfortable with their bodies while they’re out and about.
There are a few characteristics that make a city a desirable one for personal training. Warm weather, affluence, and a desire to be healthy make Austin a place where personal training is a huge need. There are lots of fitness options that attempt to fill this need. Group fitness classes, pilates and yoga studios, and recreational sports are all options for people to move around, but none of those offer the individualized regimen that personal training does.
Customized Personal Training
A personal trainer meets your individual needs and that cannot be found any other way. People in Austin realize this and know they need help in order to reach their goals. In any business, executives outsource tasks to others that they cannot give ample attention to. Hiring a personal trainer is simply outsourcing your fitness regimen to someone who really knows what they’re doing and can ensure you reach your goals.
Thankfully Austin is a place where fitness is in high demand so personal trainers have a large market to help! I have lived here less than a year and have enjoyed the energetic, active, and ambitious atmosphere this city has to offer.
