JC'S "Life's Sets and Reps"

I just got back from a great personal training business and marketing seminar. There were many great speakers, but I just wanted to highlight a slide from one of the speakers for todays blog.

Juan Carlos Santana is very well know in the fitness industry for his "functional fitness" mentality. But what I liked about his presentation this weekend was that it was different than his normal presentation. This presentation dealt with handling "Life". Many people come to us to help make them physically better, but there are usually so many unresolved components of peoples daily life that make helping the "physical" very difficult if not impossible.

So, JC presented a slide he labeled "Life's Sets and Reps". And I wanted to share it with you here today. Hope you enjoy it. I feel many of us spend to much time in some of these categories and greatly neglect some of the others

Enjoy and Keep moving

"Life's Sets and Reps"
Pure Spiritual time (1-3 hours per week) These activities do not take up physical energy. They allow you to feel calm, happy, and transcendence. Music, meditation, art, reading, etc.
Physical spiritual time (3-7 hours per week) These activities involve a rhythmic movement that provides a positive hormonal and psychological environment that allows one to be involved in positive imagery and self talk. This is exercise, problem solving, a pat on the back, and exercising the "will" of life.
Social Time (1-7 hours per week) Dedicate time to special people in your life (outside immediate family). Communicate with special friends that provide you with a secure social circle and an upbeat social environment.
Family Time (1-7 hours per week) Spend quality time with immediate family members (i.e. no TV, no cell phones, no distraction) If there are no family members around, substitute that time with close friends- thus the big range in time for both categories.
Work (40-50 hours per week) This is a must for most. However, the more courage one has to make work something they love to do, the closer they will be to true happiness. YOU CAN'T BE HAPPY MOST OF THE TIME IF YOU ARE MISERABLE AT WORK MOST OF THE TIME.
Good Sleep (49- 56 hours per week) Enough can't be said about this activity- most Americans are sleep deprived- even if they spend many hours in bed. Good Sleep (7-8 hours per night)!
