I am still trying to get my new business up and running (@JillsWellness). I am on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. It's only been a year since I got my Personal Training Diploma, and I've heard it said that it takes at least two years to get a new business going. I have budgeted for that, so fingers crossed!
Things are looking up though; I have a few clients, but also an exciting opportunity to work with a physiotherapy company locally. It's taken a lot of time, effort, commitment and networking to establish links with people, and it's often felt that I'm going round in circles.
My passion to do this is what drives me. I totally believe in what I'm trying to do, and when things are definite I'll share a bit more information- I'm not being intentionally mysterious.
I'm still getting my gym sessions in, and usually go about 4-5 times a week. For me this really helps my tailbone pain. I think it's a mix of the good old endorphins, just the actual getting up and getting out, socialising with friendly, like-minded people and actually keeping everything moving and supple.
I do find the cold weather tends to make the pain 'niggle' though, so I'm not looking forward to the Winter. Summer is definitely my season!
I would recommend being more active to anyone who is in pain. I know that a lot of factors effect our ability to get active (and not all just physical). But I would advocate getting advise from your healthcare provider and/or Personal Trainer to see what they suggest. They can support and motivate you throughout. There is usually some activity that you can do, regardless of any limitations.
It's just taking that first step.
But then, every journey begins with that first step.
