Think You Can Do it Yourself? Think Again You Need a Trainer.

On the day when a good friend wrote a post on making it happen and the pain one must endure, the New York Times published a solid article on the benefits of having a personal trainer. The story highlights the key reasons why trainers are a necessary component when looking to get faster, but also briefly mentions the emotional tenacity an individual must have when looking to push their personal boundaries. Whether you’re an athlete or not the articles is worth a quick read. And who knows maybe it will inspire you to go out and tackle something you once thought impossible.

    Need a trainer for what? Winning? Why do I have to win or be the fastest to enjoy my sport? I DO think I can do it myself. I also can’t afford to do otherwise.

    I totally agree with you on not being able to afford a trainer. I should have articulated this a bit better, but I was making the point that we need other people–trainers, mentors, friends — in order to succeed, since being on our own can only take us so far. As for being the fastest in your sport, I’m hardly the fastest runner, but man do I love it. Thanks for keeping me in check and hope all is well.
