Lifestyle

Single mom everyday life nowadays be like:

We single moms don’t have to buy into the popular narrative.

I’m not broken.
I’m not a victim.
I’m not damaged goods.

My life isn’t a pile of misery.

I don’t cry myself to sleep every night wishing I had a husband.

No, this isn’t what I had hoped for.

Yes, it’s hard.

Guess what? Everyone’s life has its own challenges. They’re not always as visible to the outside world as single motherhood is.

I take responsibility for my role in creating these circumstances – which is not the same as blaming myself or ignoring the role others played, by the way.

Taking responsibility empowers me to take control of my life and circumstances instead of being a victim to random events and other people.

I am creating a life that I love. Yes, even as a single mom, though there shouldn’t be a need for that disclaimer.

I am going after my goals and making dreams come true for myself and my son.

I’m cherishing these years as a single mom.

When the right person comes along, I’ll cherish my time in a relationship.

Whatever the universe throws at me, I’ll find a way to create a life worth cherishing.

5 Benefits of Personalized Home Fitness Programs

It used to be that elite fitness trainers only served clients at gyms, and you had to pay heaps. Home programs were limited to watered-down cutesy videos geared toward people who weren’t serious enough to get to the gym.

Several years ago training began moving online, and with the pandemic, home programs exploded. Now, more elite trainers are providing personalized home programs than ever before, making advanced fitness training accessible to those who, for whatever reason, don’t have access to a gym or prefer to work out at home.

Here are some of the benefits of personalized home fitness programs to help you decide if trying one is the right move for you

1-Personalized home fitness programs are customized to your lifestyle

They can be adjusted for your schedule and circumstances, and even for your personality.

Whether you have a crazy work schedule or there’s nobody to watch the kids, sometimes even the most dedicated fitness fanatics can’t get to the gym. Sometimes, especially if you’re a parent, you don’t get long stretches of uninterrupted time. Maybe breaking your workouts into two or three chunks throughout the day works best, or doing intense sets with rest in between so you can multitask with young kids or answer calls for work.

On the other hand, maybe you prefer 2-hour workouts with a couple of rest days in between so you don’t have to work out every day.

Maybe you prefer to exercise outdoors. Maybe you live near a sandy beach or a mountain or a lake and can use them for workouts that others can’t do.

In any case, with home programs, your trainer can get more creative with the format of your regimen.

2-Personalized home fitness programs are customized for your fitness level.

Unlike generic workout videos or Googled regimens, when you work with a trainer they customize the program for your fitness level.

A quality trainer will take time to assess your current fitness level and exercise form, which can be done in a video session or by sending videos to your trainer.

They will then design a program with each exercise, intensity, and duration chosen deliberately for your body’s needs.

The best ones will have you send video samples, or assess you in a video session, to ensure that you are doing the exercises correctly. Besides being important for results, form is crucial for injury prevention.

3-Personalized home fitness programs are customized to your space.

Got a home gym? Awesome! Got a tiny apartment with neighbors that knock their broom on the ceiling every time you do burpees? That works too!

The best trainers know many ways to reach the same goal and can get creative with varying access to equipment and space. They can also help you leverage public spaces such as doing box jumps on benches, pull-ups in a playground, and resisted running on a sandy beach.

4-Personalized home fitness programs can put your trainer in your pocket.

Online trainers often offer support between sessions or throughout your time doing the regimen they crafted for you. The best learning often comes when you’re in the thick of it on your own, not when you’re in a session with your trainer. Being able to text your trainer for suggestions on what to eat at a wedding or get their feedback on a workout that feels wrong boosts your skills and results. Plus, they can keep you motivated when you’re tempted to fall off the wagon.

Online trainers vary widely in this regard though. Be sure to ask your trainer if they offer support between sessions, and if so, the nature of that support. Some welcome daily texts. Others limit you to an email per week or rarely respond.

5-With personalized home fitness programs you can access the perfect trainer for you from anywhere in the world, and even take your regimen on vacation.

Gone are the days of going to the gym and having a few generic trainers to choose from. Now you can find a trainer who specializes in getting the specific results you want specifically with people like you.

There are trainers for comic book nerds who are new to working out.

There are trainers for postmenopausal athletes who are suddenly putting on extra pounds.

There are trainers for those who are recovering from specific injuries or want to be able to do acrobatics or want to compete in powerlifting.

Personally, I train single moms going through tough times, who need creative regimens when they can’t get to a gym, they’re burnt out, and their kids interrupt them every 2 minutes. As you can imagine, most of my clients were failed by other trainers and programs because they couldn’t adjust their life to fit their regimens. Getting a regimen designed for their unique needs is a game-changer.

Being able to access a trainer from anywhere in the world also means you can continue your regimen when you’re traveling. Vacations or frequent business travel no longer have to throw you off your path.

A Warning

While there are great benefits to personalized home fitness programs, their quality varies greatly. Make sure your trainer will give you personal attention, either through calls or online support. They should be assessing you and giving you feedback on your workouts.

Unfortunately, there are many trainers who provide cookie-cutter programs and call them customized. They give their clients a list of workouts and then leave them alone for a month with little or no support. Customization is limited to their gender and general fitness level, not truly customized for each exercise and for the person’s life. Choose your trainer carefully.

Final Words

While going to the gym for an hour a day and working with a trainer in person is a great option, it’s no longer the only great option. Personalized home fitness programs allow those with a variety of needs and circumstances to get just as great results or better from home. There’s no right or wrong – it’s about which is best for you.


Well, if you’re still reading till here, you’re definitely invested in the idea of a personalized home program. Luckily for you, I have my own business where I offer 5-star personalized stress-free programs globally for my clients. Excited?

How to Make Major Lifestyle Changes When You’re Burnt Out & Overwhelmed

1-Choose small action steps that take minimal effort but help you FEEL better.

2-Once you feel better, you’ll naturally want more. Gradually add more small changes as you continue to feel better.

3-When you fall off the wagon, get back on without judgment. It is part of the process.

4-Stay consistent. Don’t be an inspiration junkie, jumping to another program/regimen when the first one isn’t new and exciting anymore.

It’s that simple.


However, it’s not always easy to know which small actions will actually get enough results to make you feel better. After all, there’s a lot of money to be made selling easy “miracle solutions” that get little or no results.
Here are a few of my favorite first action steps:


Fitness: 1-minute jumping jacks as soon as you wake up. Once you can do that, keep weights right outside your bathroom and do a set of an exercise every time you leave it, working your whole body over the course of the week.

Nutrition: Make half of your food fresh fruit and non-starchy vegetables.
Stress Management: Try out a variety of adaptogens to find a few that work for you. Use them as levers to adjust how you’re feeling at any given time. Ashwagandha is the most popular among my clients.

Mindfulness: Observe your inner monologue and “reel” throughout the day. Any time you feel uncomfortable, observe what’s happening in your mind and body in detail and without judgment, as a scientist.

While these may seem random, I promise they were chosen carefully after considering how much effort they take, how noticeable the results are, and how quickly they begin to work. I’ve also tested them on myself and seen them work over and over again with my clients.
Over time, these small steps turn into a sprint and we transform in the process.
Not sure how to make a healthy lifestyle work in your tough situation? Pick my brain ???? I love getting messages about this stuff.
