Struggling Through the First Steps
Deciding to start is the hardest part, but the second-hardest is figuring out how you'll tackle your goals. Kelsey started out thinking she could do it alone, but soon realized that she needed help. "Only a few weeks into my journey I felt that I was in over my head," she explained. "I knew that I needed to hire a professional, but was apprehensive about doing so given my previous experiences with trainers that were merely there to collect a check."
A trainer at Kelsey's gym reached out to her on Instagram, inviting her in for an assessment, and that's when things started to change. "My fitness assessment was executed with great detail, analyzing my range of motion, especially around my injuries, and really breaking down my eating habits and body composition. To me, this was a good indicator that I was in the right place," Kelsey told POPSUGAR.
