Last time, we looked at what was keeping you from exercising, from reclaiming your overall fitness and from feeling better physically.

Today, let’s look at what brought you to Your Personal Trainer Paris. If you’re like most of my clients, you’re here because of one of the following:

General weight loss

Most people are interested in losing weight, but their reasons vary. Some want to reclaim the size they were 5, 10 or 15 years ago. Others gained weight due to stress, dramatic changes in their lives (like moving abroad) or as a result of medical issues. Whatever your reason, we can get you back to a manageable weight and find a routine to help you keep it.

Benefit: You already have a goal weight in mind (or at least a definite range). Goals are easy to work towards, especially as we manage and track your progress.

An event

All kinds of events lead people to want to be more fit. A wedding, a marathon, a reunion, a birthday or some other milestone can cause a lot of people to reflect on their general health or reassess themselves physically.

Benefit: The great thing about this motivator is that it has a deadline! It’s a self-motivating motivator and we’ll keep the pressure appropriately on to reach it!


Winter malaise

As the days have got shorter and the famous Parisian light has started to disappear earlier and earlier, a lot of people fall into the French version of a funk, a malaise. The up-coming holiday season has a lot of temptations for people too — all that foie gras, wine, cheese, terrines, etc. — that seem to appear at every dinner party, apéro or work event. You might be seduced by all the delicious things on offer, but if you already know that you will fall under their spells, you need to fight back and the sooner the better.

Benefit: Know thyself, know thine enemy! Once we figure out what’s causing you to overindulge, we can develop systems to avoid it.


So, what’s your motivation? Why are you here? Let me know in the comments below, on Facebook or on Instagram @parispersonaltrainer. I’d like to hear from you and answer your questions.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be looking at what we eat: what’s good for us, what “good” is, and how we can keep our spirits up during this upcoming dreary season. Let me know if you have any culinary questions!
