When the going gets rough, ask your trainers for help!
There’s something really, really, bad wrong with my ankle — x-rays didn’t show a break, but it hurts and I can’t run on it, so of course I’m still going to AbsoluteFIT sessions (the trainers can work around any condition, believe me!), but I also want to keep training for my half-marathon without permanently ruining my body.
I happened to mention this to AbsoluteFIT trainer Jackie Vail, and she suggested water jogging, which I’d never heard of; then, after I’d checked it out online and realized I needed help, she graciously agreed to spend a little of her own free time to demonstrate some moves in the pool and get me started.
People — Jackie knows what she’s talking about! (You should go to the AbsoluteFIT sessions she teaches, plus she will school you one-on-one as a personal trainer). That was some workout! For the first time, I think I might make it to this race.
The takeaway: For anything fitness, health, or nutrition-related, you can rely on your AbsoluteFIT coaches — ask them today!
