Over the last 10 years of working in commercial gyms like GymBox and Fitness First,
I’ve formed a pretty good idea of how people’s think about what they believe is possible.
I’ve seen how many people set them self’s up for disappointment,
and all before they have even given them self’s the time, to see what’s possible for them,
with the lifestyle, they lead.
Do you have realistic expectations of what you can achieve?
I think being realistic about what you can achieve with the lifestyle you lead is so easily overlooked because very few seem to make the link that I go on about all the time, in the order of importance: Lifestyle, Nutrition, and Exercise.
How can someone that works for 10-12 hours, sleeps badly for barely 6-7 and has poor to reasonable nutrition, achieve the same as someone that is able to be flexible with their schedule and lifestyle?
Do you aspire to someone or something that’s achievable for you?
I think its human nature to look around and compare, though you could be setting yourself up for disappointment before you even start.
Anyone can work hard or be pushed until they can’t give anymore, crawling out the gym back to the pressure of the office, but is this intelligent training?
A word of warning:
If you enter the state of fatigue you not going to shift fat for love nor money,
no matter how much or how determined you are, and also forget being healthy.
Signs of fatigue:
If you aspire to a celebrity or dare I say a Personal Trainer, have a think;
is the source of my inspiration/motivator doing me justice with all I have going on in my life?
How long can I keep this up before something gives out?
Do consider elements about others that motivate you but more than anything
Be inspired by you!
