The last time I had burpees in my workout was towards the end of last year, that is until last week.

Why You Should Hire a Personal Trainer

Last Wednesday, my personal relationship with my personal trainer ended. I had learned everything I could from him and it was time to set forth a different fitness route.

Hiring a personal trainer was one of the best decisions I made in life. I tried getting on the fitness path before and enrolled in a gym. But I quit so soon, lacking in motivation and knowledge. A couple of years later, after being diagnosed with sickness, I knew I had to make an uncomfortable yet wise change in my life. I wanted to go to the gym and restart my fitness route again.

Exercise Helps Control The Urges

A trip to the ENT doctor resulted in my medicine intake extending for three more days. My otitis media was still kicking and I had to take more antibiotics or my ear would have to partake in some foreign matter suction. Presented with no choice but to obey, it was the antibiotics way for me. Coming off from my abysmal diet practice last week, the 3-day extension became my excuse for more soda.
