Since I qualified as a Personal Training in 2006.
I’ve been able to form a pretty good idea of what people believe is possible.
I’ve seen too many people set themselves up for disappointment,
all because they haven’t even given it though to what’s possible with the lifestyle they lead.
Their goals weren’t personal!
Are your goals realistic?
Being realistic about what you can achieve with the lifestyle and busy schedule you lead is easily overlooked,
very few seem to understand something that I go on about all the time, in the order of importance:
Lifestyle, Nutrition, Exercise!
If you work 10-12 hours a day, only get 6-7 hours sleep and have a reasonable nutrition at best,
how can you achieve the same results as someone that can be flexible with all of these elements?
Some of the social fitness superstars and celeb trainers would have you believe so.
Are you aspiring to be someone or something that’s achievable for you?
It’s human nature to look around and compare, but are you setting yourself up for disappointment before you even started?
Anyone can work out so hard or be beasted( fitness term ) by a Personal Trainer until they can’t move.
It’s mindless to exercise so vigorously you end up having to crawl out the gym and back to the pressure of the office.
At some point, you will probably end up burnt out, with no clue why.
If you enter the state of fatigue ( to you that may be needing the weekend to get over the week ), you’re not going to build muscle, improve your fitness or shift fat for love nor money.
I don’t care how determined you are:
You can’t give more than you have.
Signs of fatigue:
Do you aspire to a body image of a Celebrity or (dare I say) a Personal Trainer? Have a quick think, is my inspiration/motivator doing me justice with all I have going on in my life, and how long can I keep this up before something breaks?
Look out for the signs I listed above,
it will make progress a whole lot easier if you do.
If you want more informative info just like this.
You know what to do!
