If you’re overweight, or your health is not where you’d like it to be, you’ve really only got yourself to blame. Advertising, convenience of fast food outlets, long work hours, tiredness and lack of energy-they’re all excuses that people use to justify why they’re carrying around extra fat and are getting sick so often, as well as having no energy most days.
They’re not the real reason though. The real reason is because basically they are eating crap, eating too much of it and they’re usually being lazy. There’s no way around this truth. We all have the same number of hours in the day, we shop at the same supermarkets, we have kids, we have jobs and other commitments. But some people just go day to day complaining about their situation and never trying to do anything to change it.
If you’re like this, there must be a reason you decide to stay this way. IT IS possible to change your habits and to get the body you want-both in terms of how you look and how you feel. IT IS possible to turn everything around. It doesn’t matter if you’ve failed to do so on previous attempts.
YOU CAN DO IT NOW! I CAN SHOW YOU HOW!
Often people are resistant to change because they don’t know what is expected of them. Realistically, we may know what we need to do. We may be in denial, or be looking for the next magic bullet. But truth being said, YOU ARE THE MAGIC BULLET.
You have the power to change. No one else can make the decision for you and no one else can stop you. It’s all up to you.
If you’ve been thinking about coming along to FitterFaster, but are not sure what to expect, here’s a few things I’m asked the most often:
I’m scared, I’m too unfit, I’ve never done anything like this before
Statements like these are the most common thing I hear first up. Whether my initial contact with a new client is via text, email, phone or in person, almost everyone says that they’re scared and/or not fit enough. This is perfectly natural and nothing to worry about. I absolutely guarantee that once you turn up to train, you’ll feel right at home with other clients and the awesome trainers immediately.
Although the drills will be new to you and you may struggle with some components of the workout, we will be with you all the way to make sure that you’re doing everything right and not doing too much too soon.
You will absolutely not be expected to do more than you are capable of!
Every other client was a beginner once, and most can vividly remember their first sessions and how they felt turning up. We have the best bunch of people to train with and you don’t have to compare yourself to any of them. Some have done almost 1000 training sessions here, and others are just starting their journeys too.
So don’t compare yourselves to anyone else.
It’s where you’re at that is important to you and where you are going from there. We run a full beginner program where all ‘Rookies’ are required to modify drills, take compulsory extra breaks and avoid certain exercises till they’ve built up a base fitness level and can progress to the next level. Every Rookie progresses at their own rate with all coaches keeping a special eye on you to make sure you’re performing all drills safely and within your capabilities.
I dont want to keep a food journal.
Keeping a food journal is something that most successful weight losers do. And they keep doing it once they reach their ideal weight. I do it myself approx every 4-6 weeks for a week or two. It keeps me accountable and shows up bad habits that start creeping in. So ultimately it is up to you to keep the journal or not. I highly recommend it, even if it’s just till you get the hang of it and start developing better habits. If you become one of my clients, you’ll need to keep a Food Journal from time to time when requested.
Have realistic expectations
You will not be cured of your bad habits in a single day or week. These behaviours have been learned over a long period of time so you cannot expect to unlearn them overnight. We have also had myths and untruths aimed at us from every direction over the past 20 years or so when it comes to nutrition. Most of it comes from the marketing companies whose job it is to convince you why you do or dont need a certain item. These companies do not have your best interests at heart. So while some stuff may come pretty easy, other stuff my be a struggle, but its okay, eventually you can and will learn how to get and keep a healthy fit body.
Cravings are worse when you are stressed
You need to find time out for yourself. Whether that is by training, taking a walk, playing sport, reading, gardening, a bath, a massage or whatever, give yourself time out to reduce stress. Times when you feel overwhelmed will give you the perfect ‘excuse’ to have to have something bad to eat. Don’t let stress be the trigger to pig out, do something about else instead and deal with it in a more productive way. Starting a training program like those at FitterFaster, believe it or not, will help with cravings. Its absolutely amazing how you just want to choose healthier foods when you’re training.
Have positive expectations about the program. Dont think about what you cant have, but all the great benefits you are going to get-better health, more energy, a new body, longer life etc. There’s no doubt you will have to give up certain things, especially in the short term. But as they say, nothing tastes as good as a lean, fit and healthy body feels. Once you experience this, you’ll understand what I mean. Likewise with training. At first it may take a huge amount of effort to get yourself out here. But once you start to get fitter and see results, you’ll be amazed again at how you look forward to training and how it makes you feel.
How’s That working for you?
As Dr Phil would say. Has what you have been doing in the past been working for you? No? Well stop dwelling on it then or ask yourself why you are so resistant to change. Maybe the benefits of staying the same outway the benefits of making the changes for you. If some part of you keeps on making up excuses to not change, then maybe there is a reason for that. Do you really want to have all those positive benefits or not? Think about how you’ll feel when you look in the mirror. How great it will be to choose clothes you love. How happy you’ll be when you can keep up with the kids.
Have a fair dinkum go if you decide that you really do want the postive benefits, then make the effort required to get them. You will not look fit and healthy unless you ARE fit and healthy. There is no way to fake it. You will have to make the right food choices, you will have to turn up to training and you will have to push through the barriers. I can provide information, I can provide encouragement, I can push you at training, I can even provide extra incentive in the form of prizes but I cannot do it for you. I am proof that this works. Prove that you have what it takes too.
