You are not just a Fit Pro

balancing life as a fit pro

Last week I shared maxim number 9 with you: Have fun!

As promised here is this week’s maxim for you.

#10 You are not just a Fit Pro

Making your passion your profession and working as a fitness professional is a privileged, rewarding and fun career. However, you have other roles in your life that are important too.

Building your fitness business takes up a lot of your energy and bandwidth. You must be smart with your time and plan in rest and recovery like we do with our client’s training programmes.

Work-life balance

As well as being a fitness professional, I am a fiance! (soon to be husband!), a father of three, brother, uncle, son and friend. I take those roles very seriously as well.

To maintain a work-life balance, I have specific measures in place.

For example, in my terms and conditions and email communications, I make it very clear that my working hours are Monday to Friday, 9 am to 4 pm.

I have an out of hours autoresponder on my business WhatsApp that reminds people of this, so they don’t think I am ignoring them!

I have also turned off notifications for my business WhatsApp messages and emails. When I am with my friends and family, they have my attention, and I do not get distracted by work.

Be the best fitness professional you can be but not at the expense of all of the other vital roles you have in your life.

In the video below, Ben Coomber and I discuss content creation, engagement, and the importance of managing customer expectations for maintaining a work-life balance.
