Fit for a cause is a way fitness professionals can make a big difference in many people’s lives and go the extra mile. Their passion to inspire health and strengthen the body was the motivation and the answer to this call. The reason for writing this article is to reflect on how precious life is and to share something that will encourage you in your own personal training for your clients.
Timing is everything. Springtime is prime time to asses our clients overall fitness improvement and encourage them to stay in the race to health. Statistically many people falter from there fitness commitment due to unrealistic goals that stem from the traditional New Year’s resolution therefore, consider participating with your clients in a marathon event. An incentive to make a difference in someone else’s life adds purpose to their commitment.  
Team Training  has been a veteran of marathons for years, raising billions of dollars for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  A personal trainer can seize this great opportunity to create a new challenge for their clients. For example, Saturday was an open invitation for clients to train with me on the track, instead of me training them. (That was free) well that stemmed a marathon interest. We are so proud of Cindy. Her first 5K will be building a future for autismThe best training program requires thinking outside the box. Endurance events, such as walking, cycling, swimming or running are a dime a dozen. Trainers can be the motivator and the added creativity to these training methods. There are many resources and helpful tips available before preparing for a marathon. It is essential that a person prepare their body and mind. The physiological benefits of a cardiovascular endurance program can increase energy, improve breathing, and burn calories, not to mention the health effects of sun exposure during an outdoor workout. Outside circuit training, yoga in the park or beach, playgrounds offer great workout equipment.
Marathon training for you and your client can inspire friends and family to jump on a healthy journey and brighten the futures of others.
 Life is a great big canvasand you should throw all the paint you can on it. ~Danny Kaye.
