Just wanna have fun?
The good news is, no matter what kind of personality you have...there's a form of fitness that will FIT YOU!
It's important to take a little time to figure out how you work best, so that you can get the best results. In fact... if you feel you've "failed" at exercise programs in the past...chances are good that at least part of the reason why, was that you were forcing yourself to do something that you truly didn't like! That's no way to set yourself up for success!
Challenging yourself to get healthier is one thing...DRAGGING yourself to so something you honestly just can't stand is another! Life's too short for that!
The truth is...you CAN ENJOY working out...it's just about committing to finding something you like!
Some of our Walk 15 Instructors had fun sharing their fitness personalities:
"My fitness personality: Flashy workout clothes✔️Huge goofy smile✔️ All business" during a workout✔️ I like the social aspect of classes✔️ I also like to create my own space when I exercise✔️
One more thing, I may be "all business" during a workout, but it must be fun & enjoyable. If it becomes a drag, I lose interest."
"I don't wear flashy clothes, but I do keep a bubbly smile. Also, I love the social aspect of teaching Walk 15 and meeting new people. I think exercise should be fun and I emphasize that to my students."
"I'm definitely a social butterfly with a VERY bubbly personality! I had a step aerobics instructor approach me after class once and thank me for smiling throughout. I couldn't help it! I just LOVE working out, and I tend to encourage the people around me while we're at it."
"I'm the one who shows up in my paint stained rock concert t-shirt and sweatpants (sometimes I do wear workout pants). I like the social aspect of the group classes, but I am the quiet one who doesn't initiate the conversation. And once the class starts, I am in the zone."
"I'm the social one who always wears a smile. It encourages all walkers to have fun and enjoy the time. Then on to the business of getting that workout started, no matter what their fitness level is. And then getting that inner happiness feeling when they say "thank you for offering this class, see you next week!"
"I’m the “all business, but add a dash of humor!” Let’s go in and get this party started and let’s do what we came here for! Many of participants love the idea of the “happy hour”! We Walk-and-Roll while getting Fit!
I love, love, love being the Walk Diva by dressing the part, wearing a huge smile, creating a party atmosphere, but underneath all the "fun" is the heart of a true businesswoman ready to get it done! The truth is, the social aspect, the wonderful connections we make are the icing on the cake. I truly love my super walkers and Walking Warriors!
