When speaking with new clients I often describe the first session to working out after a time of being sedentary; your goal is to get stronger but the next day your body aches there are pains in places you never imagined and you question why? Similar to beginning an exercise regime you feel an emotional soreness or vulnerability. This is just the start of a brave and fearless adventure to the new and improved you.
