really does have a name! Its Jackie. Nice to meet you! I’m a Personal Trainer and am a self-professed fitness junkie!! I enjoy a whole lot of working out, but really do not enjoy going to the gym at all, so have found some pretty great ways to work out hard without doing the gym thang.
My workouts include (but are not limited to): Endurance Running (my first love), Weight Training (official 2nd love), HIIT (including wind sprints, hill sprints, & endurance running incorporating hills), and yes, even some long duration steady-state cardio like powerwalking. I’ve almost worn out the seawall around Stanley Park all on my own with all the cardio I do there! When circumstance (like mostly weather) won’t allow for an outdoor cardio workout, I’ll even go so far as to climb the stairwells in the high-rise apartment building I live in for 45mins or so…
I have a great set of weights and fitness bands at home (including a pull-up bar I had installed), and regularly weight train hard with my own music blasting (I don’t even have to wear an mp3 player!) and get totally into my own head and feel that burn.
As far as I’m concerned the possibilities for working out and being super-fit without ever hitting the gym are endless!
Anyway, I’m very glad you found me! I’m here to share what I do, how I do it, what gets me motivated, what gets me down and causes barriers, whatever!! And, if there’s anything I can do to help you motivate on your own journey, or get through your tough spots, then I know I’ve landed here for a reason!
If you are in need of some extra motivation or are interested in working with me in person or online on your own fitness goals, be sure the check out my page. I would love to work with you.
