A loyal reader asked me to break down a day in the life of a personal trainer – when I wake up, what I do all day, and how I stay fit.
Those of you who are also independent consultants like me know this: there is no typical day. Each one is different, and plan as we may, days tend to take very different courses depending on cancellations, traffic, and a host of other “unpredictables” as the hours roll by.
That said, because my days are so varied and (perhaps) somewhat interesting, I figured I’d combine that reader request with today’s Blogging 201 assignment, which is thus:
B201 – Day 6 – Make the Most of Events
Create a recurring blogging event on your site, and/or make plans to attend a blogging conference.
Besides looking up blogging conferences in my area (not too difficult seeing as I’m in Los Angeles), I am hoping to draw some inspiration from my daily life to create a recurring but meaningful blog event (think World Fitness Day, or American Clean Eating Month [don’t take my idea – this may happen!], or something we can all participate in for the greater food).
Until I figure that all out, here’s a breakdown of what my #dayinthelife looks like this lovely Tuesday:
5:00am– alarm goes off; I groggily walk to the coffee pot and brew up some DD
5:15am – take my temperature (for fertility tracking), take my Biotin (for hair growth), and get ready (using my fave sweatproof products by it Cosmetics)
5:30am – coffee in hand, drive out to my first (outdoor) client while listening to Kevin & Bean, my absolute favorite morning radio show
7:00am – first client done, drive back to Fox Studios to teach CycleSculpt class
8:30am – class over, client at Fox
9:30-11:00am – bathe and prep for wellness presentation; breakfast of two hard boiled eggs, leftover arugula salad, and 1/2 whole wheat pita
11:30-2:00pm – give back-to-back wellness presentations at Fox (title: Exercise Intensity – The What, The Why, and the How-To)
2:30-4:00pm – work with online clients (all 89 of them!) over on FitOrbit.com; nosh on leftover Winter Day chili and pumpkin cornbread from last night
4:00-8:00pm – train more clients (both at Fox and outdoors)
8:30pm – receive Amazon Fresh and Blue Apron deliveries, prepare delicious meal (tonight: caramelized pork and congee); watch Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown, Tosh.0, and/or House Hunters International with the fiance
10:30pm – after a couple chapters of Lena Dunham’s new book, hit the sack
What does your #dayinthelife look like? If you blog, what’s your favorite blogging event and/or conference?
