My Inventory of Workout Guides and Meal Plans

Here is a little bit of information about the inventory of workout guides and meal plans I have:

1. Blogilates

The first guide I bought from Blogilates was the New Body Make Over meal plan.I loosely followed this in college when I needed to lose weight.

PIIT 1.0 sounded like a fun guide to try because I followed her on Youtube, but I never tried it because it involves jumping and I couldn't figure out how to make it apartment friendly. 2. Love Sweat FitnessHot Body Sweat Guide 1.0 (Weeks 1-8) Hot Body Sweat Guide 2.0 (Weeks 9-16)4 Week Hot Body Meal Plan Guiltless Nutrition Lifestyle & Recipe Book have two workout guides (Hot Body Sweat Guide 1.0 and 2.0), a meal plan (The Hot Body Meal Plan), and a couple of recipe guides including the Guiltless Nutrition Lifestyle and Recipe Book and the first Guiltless Nutrition Guide (not pictured) Katie Dunlop came out with. I have done the Hot Body Sweat Guide 1.0 a few times, but didn’t finish 2.0 because I didn’t have time to workout an hour a day. As for the recipe guide and meal plan- those have been a great source of recipe ideas. However, I haven’t followed the meal plan because I prefer to plan my own meals and don’t want to restrict my calories to 1200-1400 calories a day. 3. Glisten Fit have 3 workout guides by Jessica Massey. I followed the 4 week Strength and HIIT programs at the same time at the gym in 2016. It was a great guide, but I didn’t do it more than once because some of the workouts took over an hour to complete. As for the meal plan, I mostly use it for ideas just like the other meal plans I have.4. Books by Lou Schuler and Alwyn CosgroveImage result for books by lou schuler and alwyn Image result for books by lou schuler and alwynImage result for books by lou schuler and alwyn have 3 books by Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove. Out of the 3, I finished part (about half if I can remember right) of the 9 month Strong program and completed about a month of Abs. I thought both programs were good. I even progressively got stronger every week. However, since the Strong program was 9 stages long, it didn’t give me an opportunity to do other workouts that I loved to do.5. Yoga by Kassandra most recent guide I bought was Kassandra’s October yoga calendar. It was $10 and sounded fun, but I never used it. I decided I didn’t want to do only yoga for a month. Also, since it is labelled as an October calendar, I didn’t feel like trying it on a different month.

How I'm Furthering My Education Since Becoming a Personal Trainer

     Since becoming a certified personal trainer in March, I have had extra time on my hands. Three weeks to be exact. This has given me time to take multiple classes. I’m actually almost done with my recertification classes that aren’t due for two more years.                 This is what I have been working on lately: 1. I took a couple of classes about becoming an online personal trainer.                 The day after I became certified, I watched a webinar by NPE called How To Lead Your Business through COVID-19. This workshop talked about how to move your fitness business online as gyms were starting to get closed throughout the country. I also took a 3 day masterclass called How to Transition to Online Fitness Coaching by Amanda O’Mara on Facebook. It gave me a lot of ideas and tools I could use to start a new business. Right now I’m just not sure if I want to start a business. I’m still trying to decide. 2. I have finished almost 4 recertification classes .       

Why I Haven't Posted Recently

     I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but I haven't posted on either one of my blogs for over a month. Looking back at both pages, I haven't posted on ABCTE Teacher since the beginning of May and I haven't posted on Fitness and Books since late April.       To be honest with you, there isn't much to update. I went back to work, but it hasn't gone as expected. I am working very few hours because of the Coronavirus. My unemployment has also been pending since I went back to work at the end of May. I'm still trying to get that fixed right now and looking into finding a second job if I need to.      Not much has changed on the health/fitness side of things either. I have been creating my own workouts and trying them out since I became certified in March. But right now I'm taking a break to try/learn from a workout guide I bought a few years ago and never tried. It is by Jess Massey who used to be a personal trainer a few years ago, but now owns ano
