Last week one of my relatively new clients referred to me as a “fitness freak”. Not in a bad way, but it got me thinking. I’ve never looked at myself as even close to a fitness freak; but I guess to the average person who hasn’t been through a huge transformation, or who has yet to build up the necessary habits, achieving this level of physique might seem far out of reach.
However, what most people don’t realise when they see me is that I haven’t always looked this way. As you can see, I’ve been every body type from skinny-fat to plain fat, so I’m not sure I can be classified as a fitness freak :) In fact, I would consider myself as more of a foodie than a fitness freak. Seriously; anyone who knows me will tell you that food takes up about half of my daily thoughts.
I weight train 4-5 times a week (at most) and don’t really do any other form of exercise apart from picking up the occasional skateboarding injury. And up until just under 3 years ago, I was that guy in the bottom left photo. But guess what the interesting thing is? The amount of exercise I do since then has not changed (well, apart from the one skateboarding session a week). Do you think anyone would have referred to me as a fitness freak back then? I think we can agree that’s very unlikely.
Now, don’t think I’m saying that falling off a skateboard once a week will get you 6-pack abs :) What I’m actually trying to say is that achieving the body you want is not as difficult as you think, and you don’t have to be a “fitness freak” killing yourself in the gym, or starve yourself to achieve your health and fitness goals.
What you should focus on instead, is building up the necessary exercise and dietary habits over time, so that when you do achieve the body you want, it will be much easier to maintain. And I’m sure that all of these people I’ve helped will agree :) http://www.fitnessmadeeasy.co.uk/transformations.html
