Sometimes, you just don’t feel like it.  It happens.  I’m friggin’ obsessed with all things training and nutrition and sometimes even I don’t feel like it.  We all know what it’s like.  Should you find yourself feeling a little “wah wah” lazy-pants, remember you will still be serving your goals even if you go and have a “punch in, punch out” workout.  (Although I can’t find the exact article, in the interest of giving credit where it’s due, I believe I got this concept from the Warrior Poet King of Strength and Conditioning Dan John).

Because this blog is read far and wide (at least that’s what Google tells me) and because there are only so many hours in the day, it pains me to say I’m not going to be able to personally guide each reader’s fitness pursuits.  And since I’m a believer in the value of some outside help on the path to health and hotness, it’s worth taking a moment to look at some quick ways to decide if your potential trainer is qualified to make your dreams come true, or if they’d be better suited making fries at McDonald’s.
