Lifestyle – A Day in the Life of Coach Mags
If you recently read coach J-flo’s account of a glimpse into a ‘normal’ day, you’ll have noticed that her day is just like any other mom’s out there; full of chasing kids around, preparing them food, staying on top of housework and all the rest! Finding a few minutes of peace and quiet, let alone an hour to work out, isn’t always easy. Well what about if you’re a coach at a gym? Surely that means you have hours on end to train and that’s what makes all the difference right?! Uh well, sorry to burst your bubble, but no, that’s not the case! Check out what Mags’ day looks like as a Crossfit coach at our local box.
