Interview with Carmen Arrobas
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I think it was the adrenaline rush that interested me in becoming a coach. The desire to train myself and be healthy changed my whole life, and I wanted that for others. I wanted people to look and feel their best and enjoy their lives to the fullest. The way I felt after a good workout made me think of wanting this as my career. Waking up every day and guiding others to do what I love doing is the best job I can imagine. I would not replace it with anything else in the world.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Let every day be a struggle and set goals to achieve on daily basis. This will bring discipline in your life and not allow you to burden yourself with excessive work that will lead to demotivation. Work towards your goals slowly, steadily but efficiently. Take time to understand your body and the effects of the changes you make and then keep working till your goals are reached. You can achieve nothing in one day, so embrace the time spent and love yourself at every phase of the journey.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My family is the sole reason I love living in my life. My children, and my dear future grandchild. I cannot be more excited to see my family grow and meet my future blood. I am grateful to my colleagues as well. I love the community Hi Body offers, and the group of people who are always ready to support and love each other like family. They make me love my job and be sure of my career every day.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Spread love and positivity is my catchphrase in life. It is the way to live your life effectively and find true happiness. I don’t believe anyone can be truly happy if they don’t help others. I love helping people look at themselves with love and accept the beauty in them. It is very hard sometimes to not be insecure and let the horrible thoughts come inside, however, I teach and practice self-love myself, and promote everyone to do the same. First, be good to yourself, and then to others. That is the perfect way to live a fulfilling life.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Stay away from what does not do you good, does not suit you and does not help you grow.”
This quote helps me fix my schedule and keep my priorities straight always. It serves as a reminder to cut the toxicity out as soon as I feel it coming into my life. Sometimes we forget to check our lives and see if we are changing ourselves for the better or worse. This quote helps me keep myself aware of my surrounding and my own heart so I can always look forward to productively improve my life and make it better.
