When it comes to toning your body, getting your figure back after you have a baby, or just getting into shape, sometimes it takes a little bit more than just working out at home to some workout DVD’s or even making sure you go to the gym every day.
Having a personal trainer works because sometimes you just need a little bit of encouragement to get your weight loss or strength training process going. If you’ve been working out for a long time, and you’re not seeing the results you want, it might be time to hire a personal trainer.

Your Personal Trainer Debby Can Help Increase Your Willpower

It never fails. You start our day with good intentions. You eat a healthy breakfast, drink a large glass of water before your coffee, vow to grab a salad during lunch and think that today would be a good day to start that new workout routine your buddy told you about. Off to work you go, feeling in control and ready to take on the world.

It takes willpower but you manage to pass up on the office coffee run and resist eating the donuts one of your clients dropped off as a thank you. But then you had to make some hasty decisions to get a project completed and now your co-workers want you to join them at local Mexican joint for Taco Tuesday and all-you-can eat chips and salsa.

You feel drained and it’s only lunchtime. You go with the path of least resistance and join your co-workers.

Later, after consuming far too many $2 tacos, you’ll begin to wonder if going to the gym will even be worth it. Maybe you should start this whole healthy thing next Monday…with a clean slate.

Social psychologist Roy F. Baumeister conducted experiments at Case Western and Florida State University to unravel the mystery of why we lack willpower and discovered what he calls decision fatigue:

“These experiments demonstrated that there is a finite store of mental energy for exerting self-control. When people fended off the temptation to scarf down M&M’s or freshly baked chocolate-chip cookies, they were then less able to resist other temptations…Willpower turned out to be more than a folk concept or a metaphor. It really was a form of mental energy that could be exhausted. The experiments confirmed the 19th-century notion of willpower being like a muscle that was fatigued with use, a force that could be conserved by avoiding temptation.”

So what’s a person to do?

Your Physical Fitness Trainer North Hollywood To The Rescue

Debby knows what it’s like to go to battle with fatigue and temptation. She helps clients arm themselves with tried and true skills that will reduce the decision-making process allowing clients to have willpower energy when needed.

By creating customized plans that not only include individualized workouts but also incorporate ‘prep-work’, like packing healthy and tasty lunches to remove the need to ‘go out’ for lunch, Debby will help set you up for success.

Her effective fitness tips touch on the very things researchers suggest for improved willpower:

  • Eliminate temptation, bring your lunch to work. Pre-packing your lunch (even the night before) removes any decision making during your lunch hour and ensures you eat healthy.
  • Boost your willpower by focusing on the positives. Debby encourages journaling for keeping track of successes and accomplishments. You can review these when you’re feeling less than motivated.
  • Join in group exercise or commit to a personal trainer. Once you make yourself accountable to another person you’ll be less likely to back out of an activity. Schedule your workouts just like you would a doctors appointment—make it something you just cannot miss.
  • Get enough sleep. Sleep deprivation cause poor decision-making and is counterproductive to maintaining motivation and willpower. There are also many health advantages to sleep including proper workout recovery and mental restoration.

Debby’s North Hollywood gym is nearby to Burbank, Toluca Lake, Valley Glen and Van Nuys.
