I haven't been to the gym the past three days with all of the chaos about. That doesn't mean that I have not been active though.
A funny thing happened today though, and out of the blue. I received a
phone call about a front desk position that I applied for at a gym that I
go to. They said the front desk position wasn't really available right
now, plus it was for the middle of the night. The funny part was they
wanted to know if I would be interested in learning Personal Training.
They said my resume was impressive with all of my Anatomy &
Physiology and biological sciences and health background. Plus, they
see me and one person was a judge at the competition that I did last
year. They said if I were given a timeline to take the CPT Exam and
were willing to pursue it, they would train me with the technicalities
of actually training people.
Now, who knows where this will go, but I am going in Monday to
talk/interview with them about how this would work and what it would
I mean, I have done detailed labs with lots of dissecting and in depth
study of muscles and especially the cardiorespiratory system with labs
on actual people with those theories. I've been told that I execute
with proper form by more than a few trainers. If I didn't, I paid close
attention when told how to do it correctly. I have read the books for
the ACE Group Fitness Instructor test.
Hhmmmm, this could be the stepping stone that I have been looking for.
Hopefully, it won't turn out like every other thing. Nope, don't be
I told myself that it doesn't hurt to go in and talk/interview.
It could turn into something good. I could learn lots, learn things
that I have been wanting to learn. It could get me the extra cash to
compete more often than once a year, or to get some training that I have
wanted but can't afford.
Okay, now I have to see if I have anything in my closet that is
suitable for interview scenarios since all I own is workout wear, lol.
For a little yum:
I made this soup recipe from the current issue of Yoga Journal. I didn't have bok choy, kale, arrow root or 2 cans of chickpeas. So, I used my one can and used just some left over baked sweet potato (not even 3 oz) and subbed spinach for the greens.. I pureed it afterwards with an immersion blender.
It's delicious! I've even eaten it in the morning for a meal with a poached egg in it! Yes, I'm weird like that and like savory more than sweet.
