Julie Gleeson a personal trainer at the YMCA of Central Maryland offers some motivation tips for those she train and others who have not committed to an exercise plan.
“You have to be willing to do what it takes and that doesn’t mean coming to the gym everyday. Eat what you like, if you eat things you don’t really enjoy, you’re not gonna get any results,” Gleeson says. One good resource for healthy eating is pyramid.gov, which she gives that tip to anyone wanting to know about portions and how to balance a meal.
Gleeson has been training for less than two years and teaches from her own personal experience as someone who did not exercise much in the past. She has a lot of ideas to help keep people motivated and she is a great encourager.
