Episode 26 – Personal Training at Hope with Bill

Hope Mindful Compassion Show – Episode 26 – Personal Training at Hope with Bill

Hosts: Paul Garrigan & Bill

In this episode, Bill talks about the benefits of personal training at Hope. We addicts can have an ‘all or nothing’ attitude towards exercise. This can mean we either start off overenthusiastically and burn ourselves out, or we struggle to get motivated enough to do even one sit-up. Personal training is helpful because it means we avoid the extremes so we can get the most out of an exercise regime.

In this episode of the podcast, Simon shares his experience of dealing with hepatitis C, and he explains how such consequences of addiction need not be a barrier to recovery – in fact, there may even be a positive side to having to face them.
