Mommy Makeover participant Charity Rossiter has said that the toughest part of this program is missing the time with her son, Jonathan, and husband, Ryan. She said she loves getting to see them interact with each other at bath time and getting ready for bed. (And we can understand why – that little guy is cute!)
Still, she said, she knows she needs to make time for herself to be a healthier happier mom for Jonathan.
But Anytime Fitness personal trainer Rob Land says his goal is to teach our Mommy Makeover divas as well as his clients how to get the most out of their time in the gym so that they can be in, out and on their way back to the rest of their lives.
“You do have a limited amount of time to begin with, and obviously not ever free moment you’ve got you’ll want to be 100 percent focused on working out,” he said.
The secret for the ladies of Mommy Makeover and for anyone else, he said, is to work smarter, not harder.
The first thing Land recommends is personal training, and the reason is simple – you will work harder, in a shorter amount of time and find quicker results.
“You’re getting the most out of your time, so you’re not in there spinning your wheels,” he said.
In addition, the fact that a client pays for the trainer’s time is another motivation, he said. Because the client attaches value to a personal training session, Land said, he or she will be more likely to show up. If you have something momentarily riding on the session – or if you just have someone waiting for you at the gym – you’ll make it a priority. Land said it’s just another form of accountability to make sure the client is on target.
