Well that's Bob Holper for me. Bob Holper is my new hero. I've never had a hero & maybe hero is a bit of a dramatic stretch. But I really look up to him. I think about the way he communicates and any person you talk to will tell you how genuine & humble he is. Maybe I look up to him with tinkling eyes because he's older than I am & naturally, I have respect for his wisdom. But it's more than that. Seriously, I admire his dedication & his ability to communicate with people from all different walks of life. Look, I'm 28, new to this world of fitness, as I gracefully try and take over the weight room, a male-dominated sport, he has encouraged me and gave me confidence to tell them boys to move on ova ;)! From now on I'll just refer to him as BH. I have to apologize to BH, because I think this will embarrass him. Are you wondering who the heck BH is? Unless you've been living under a rock, BH is my new trainer & bodybuilding coach at Lifetime. He doesn't even have to speak a word for you to see his dedication of being fit & living healthy. Today was our first personal session. I used every minute as an opportunity to ask questions & soak in all the knowledge (all while getting my ASS handed to me).. Not only did I ask questions for my own knowledge but so that I could share with you all! I have to say, I learned so much on different types of lifts, positions..haha I was in a few "unique" positions... #awkward... As I transition to body building & focusing on really defining each muscle group, our workout today couldn't have been more perfect, a total body workout. But that's not what this is all about, those workouts will be posted on my website (www.msgreenpea.com) & myfitnesspal: MsGreenPea. I've decided that I needed to dedicate this post to inspire you to go out and find a BH in your life. Someone who truly encourages you in a positive way... to take the next a step of faith, in any aspect of life not only regarding your fitness. Do you have someone that encourages you right now? Who? Thank that person and tell them. You never know how much they will appreciate that. Do they appreciate you now but see you for who you will become? Do they help you set goals and map a plan to keep you accountable? Part of my success in the fitness world is because of my fitness family, the connections I've made, the accountability, and the ability to find my "true self" through people I looked up. Imaginary is powerful. Choice is powerful. It is not only about the weight on the bar or the salad on your plate, it's about a healthy mind. Our MIND is so powerful. If you can believe it, you will BE IT. My commitment as a blogger, journalist, and your virtual workout buddy is to be the BH to you. I know I'm trying to fill some pretty big shoes, but please reach out to me if I can encourage you, strengthen you, enlighten you, reaffirm with you, because HANDS down, having someone that will give you an encouraging hand can make a world of a difference.
