La Jolla Sports Club Personal Trainers weigh in on some of their thoughts on 2019!
They get coffee at Brick n Bell—they’re just like us! They shop at Mitch’s Surf Shop—they’re just like us! They go to the Lot—they’re just like us!
Yep, those damn fine La Jolla Sports Club Personal Trainers are juuuuuuust like us.
Piggybacking on last month’s articles (here and here), we’re slightly returning to the idea of gratitude, but not in an overtly connected way. In one of the studies we referenced, there was a group that was tasked with focusing on something that they felt hassled by. Which got us thinking… What in 2019 could have gone a little better? We also had your personal trainers comment on something they were pretty jazzed about, because who wants to end the year on a downer?
Questions on fitness, or want to get to know these people a little better? Just ask! All of our personal trainers are certified, trustworthy, knowledegable and plain old fun. OK, here we go 🙂
What could’ve gone better: Being more focused and on-track with my 2019 goals by writing them down and understanding how it can change the situation.
What she’s grateful for: Joining the LJSC family and meeting you lovely people!
What could’ve gone better: 2019 was a tough year for me. Back in June, I lost my younger sister in a car accident involving a drunk driver. This was my first time experiencing the loss of a loved one who I had been close to, and I dealt with it the only way I knew how to. At first I wasn’t sure how I was going to come back to work and be happy enough to motivate members through a class or a client through a workout. But coming into the Club and putting all of my energy and focus into my clients and helping them improve helped me get through it all. And not to mention, the outpouring of love from my coworkers and all of our awesome members. During that tough time I was thankful to have the support that comes with being a part of the LJSC team.
What she’s grateful for: One thing that I loved about 2019 is that my experiences, both good and bad, helped me grow in new ways. I’m stronger, both mentally and physically. I’m a better teacher. A better trainer. A better daughter. A better friend.

Our resident wordsmith, Neil, drops some serious knowledge.
What could’ve gone better: My life.
What he’s grateful for: My life.
What could’ve gone better: I wouldn’t wish an emergency root canal on anyone…
What he’s grateful for: 2019 was yet another year of amazing times with the amazing people in my life. Fun trips with my wife (and our dogs) in our second year of marriage, hanging out with my family of friends all over San Diego and of course getting to work with some of the best coworkers I’ve ever known. Life is gooooooood.
What could’ve gone better: Relationships that have taken energy from me, but I’m working on bettering my friendships with those that matter and moving away from those that don’t.
What she’s grateful for: Professionally, 2019 brought about a much-needed addition to my career as I was promoted to La Jolla Sports Club Group Fitness Manager!
What could’ve gone better: 2019 was a solid year! Maybe a little more traveling. On the other hand, we kind of live in the best place, so having a lunch break with uncrowded waves to surf made it enjoyable!
What he’s grateful for: I took my cousin’s kids trick or treating… We had a man-eating spirit, a wolf in colonial garb and me as a shark.

Thanks to the La Jolla Sports Club Personal Trainers for weighing in… We’ll check back in next week to see what they’re looking forward to in 2020. Whoa. 2020.
