How To Get In Shape
Choices & Time
Life is all about choices.
What time to go to sleep?
Where to go on holiday?
What do I want for dinner tonight?
Now I hear this all too often as a coach. “I don’t have time.” Everyone does.
When I first meet with a client I can tell straight away who is resistant to the idea of getting in shape and those who are ready to go and cannot wait to commit.
The more resistance, such as, session timings, busy periods at work or even “shall I just get started after my holiday” the more this person needs help.
Help with what?
Another major objection I hear is “I could never get results like that”
Yes, you can! Everyone starts somewhere.
The objection of time, work or whatever the reason is (it is normally just those) is usually down to something else.
Fear of failure?
Lack of self belief?
Tried a diet/fitness routine that was unsustainable and given them a negative image of what it takes to be fit and healthy.
Now, maybe, you are annoyed by what I am saying here but I have 9 years experience in the fitness coaching industry and have worked with many people and I know this to be true.
Currently at my fitness facility we coach: single, working mothers who manage to find the time to train
people who run their own businesses & high pressure jobs
NHS staff who often do overtime night shifts
Now these people have all made a choice. Health and fitness is important to them and they are prepared to sacrifice some of their time each week to improve.
Now this is not a post knocking people who do not exercise. If you have no interest in your fitness- fair enough no need to read on.
You may be thinking- “getting fit and healthy is a huge commitment”
Well let me tell you what is required.
1. Exercise 3 x a week minimum
2. Track your calories on myfitnesspal (very easily done)
3. Be consistent and repeat
No fads. Simple to follow. Just 3 hours a week.
The cost of fitness does not have to be expensive either there are gyms out there from £9 per month!
If this sounds like you then believe in yourself!
Simple every day choices lead to amazing results.
