With the smell and feel of Spring in the air I wanted to share this police report! #abercrombiefitness #fitnessmotivation #foodpolice #mealplan #trainer #personal trainer #onlinecoach #virtualtraining #fitnessblogger #encouragement
Good morning and welcome to a new Monday.
I was out lazily walking my dog on Saturday and I passed a yard sign that read “Drive like your kids live here.” The sign sent a shock wave of flash backs and memories flooding my brain. I went back in time to when I was a dumb teenager with a classic 1966 hot rod burnt orange mustang driving the neighborhood streets way to fast!!! Now, I’m the adult yelling at all of the young high school drivers to “slow down for pete’s sake.” SMH.
What does this have to do with FITness?
I couldn’t help but wonder…what if I had T-shirts made that said, “Eat like your trainer is watching”, or “order like you’re dining with your trainer”. Too offensive? Basically this insinuates that all trainers are the food police. I’m writing today to set the record straight.
