This is a totally random thought that I had Wednesday night while I was at the dentist having my teeth cleaned by my hygienist. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â (It was the most relaxing evening of this week might I add)….
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â What do Personal Trainers and Dental Hygienists Have in Common?
Well – ok, so personal trainers and hygienists don’t really have anything in common right now… But suppose they did? (Hear me out on this). Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Suppose you had to visit your Personal Trainer every 3-6 months for a fitness test or a really freaking HARD workout? Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Yanno, similar to when you visit your hygienist for a REALLY good cleaning and they put your teeth to the test.
Do you ever feel that your hygienist is TESTING how well and how often you brush? Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I certainly do. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Do you feel like super guilty that you didn’t do a better job? Does your mind flash back to that morning when you were too busy rushing the kids outta the house to brush? Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Then, for the next several weeks after your dental visit do you brush super religiously? Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â (C’mon – tell me I’m not the only one).
What if you were tested every few months on your fitness progress?Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â What if working out and exercising was as Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â important as brushing your teeth? Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â What if you HAD to visit a Personal Trainer ever 3-6 months and be put through a kick butt workout?
That would certainly motivate me to do a better job of meeting the minimum requirements to keep my heart healthy (30 min of daily moderate exercise).
