What is your passion and what do you love about it?
I think I’m the happiest person in the world because I can say my passion is my work. It’s even more than passion – it’s a mission in life. I’m really pleased to be an ambassador for a healthy lifestyle. Everyone deserves the best, that’s why I love helping people to change their lives, make their lives better than before & make them happier. I really enjoy helping people to understand how important their body & state of mind are. I am good at teaching them about healthy lifestyle and I show them how to achieve balance to live longer, happier and to enjoy the journey to its fullest. And I’m passionate about it.
How did you begin and what stands out on your journey?
I found my passion when I was still in High School, but I only really understood it later, when I was working with Human Resources Department as a Senior Specialist. Every day, after work, I was doing sports, fitness classes or training at the gym. I was really happy to train with my friends, in a place I really liked because my body and my mind felt great afterwards. One day my fitness instructor said: “Aneta, you’re on the wrong side. You were born to show people why sports are so important, to teach them how to love it as much as you love it! You need to share your energy with other people. I want you to become a fitness instructor”. I was scared at first but I was also excited about it, so I decided to give it a try. I did my course, as well as many workshops to develop my skills and I decided to quit my office job. I really liked my job, but something inside was telling me: This is your way. And so I underwent this huge life change and I felt awesome.
A few years later one lady told me: “Aneta, thank you for helping me lose my extra weight with activities I like and helping me with my back. It changed my body, my mind, and all my life. I can walk, I can meet my friends, I can do what I want and I’m really happy. You taught me and helped me understand that a healthy lifestyle is a pleasure, not a punishment. I really appreciate that you took care of me as if I was the most important person in the world. Thank you for everything”.
That was when I realized that this is more than just a passion – it’s a mission.
What are your next goals?
My main goal is to develop my skills and increase my knowledge to become better every day. I want also to share my positive attitude. It will be great to inspire more people to start loving a healthy lifestyle and to quit bad habits while enjoying their experience. It would be perfect to motivate more people and to give them real support. I would also like to continue to share my experience with everyone and hopefully, we all will enjoy a journey filled with optimism and happiness.
Do your best, forget the rest and of course the most important thing: Enjoy the Journey.
