It’s never too late to follow your passion

Some of you might noticed, that for last couple of months I wasn’t that active on my blog. There a reason for it…

For a long time, I was thinking about doing my fitness qualifications. But I wasn’t sure. Sure of what? Well, whether it’s just something a current trend for me, or something I will stay with.

Three years on, I’m happy to confirm, that fitness and nutrition is my lifestyle. It became my habit to stay active and constantly learn new things, even after reaching my weight loss goals. I’m always hungry for information and always trying to learn and apply new things that I learn. Fitness is not about perfection, it’s about being you and getting to your goals on the road that suits you.

If you would tell me 10 years ago that I would start studying to become a personal trainer, I would probably laugh in your face. Really loud. I used to be one of those who used to go into pub instead of a sport class in school.

But at beginning of March I told myself: “F**k, it. It’s time to enroll on a personal trainer course. Finally.”

I kind of grew up in it, and realised that it’s not just something temporary but something I really enjoy and am passionate about. I want to teach people. I want to share my experience with them and help them find them their “perfect” road to their fitness goals. Yes, their perfect road, because everyone is different and there’s no one-size-fits-all. I believe I can use my experiences and can understand what people are going through. I have been there, and done it…

So there I was, sending an email and finally enrolling to NASAMUK fitness course. This weekend I took my Level 2 exams and in September/October I should be fully qualified with Level 3 as well.

Was it easy? Nah, and sometimes I wanted to throw my notes out and give up. But the passion was always there and I wanted it like never before.

I’m proud to be doing the NASAMUK courses. The workshops were great and much to my surprise, it was evidence based, and that’s really close to my heart. It was amazing to discuss things with people who don’t try and force feed you with stuff from papers, but who actually tell you stuff which works and is based on evidence. We had some good discussions, like whether the knee can go over the heels when squatting, and if is breakfast is really important, and fasted cardio, etc.

I won’t lie, I felt like a fish out of water. My eyes always light up when I’m around people with who I share the same passion.

It’s never too late to follow what you love. To follow what makes you happy. But I know one thing. I wasn’t ready for this a year or two ago how I am now.

Now back to nerding for a bit (before starting to learn the course material for the next level) and catching up on studies etc, as I was cheating a bit on them with anatomy. I hope they forgive me 🙂

If you want it follow your dreams, be healthily obsessed about it and trust yourself. You can do anything what you put mind to as it’s only YOU who is your limit.

Update: I just had my result back and happy to say, that I passed my Level 2 qualifications! Now for a bit of rest before starting Level 3, which I’m really looking forward to. Especially the Nutrition part.
