This post is going to be a two-fold, with a lot of ideas about how i think you should approach fitness, and then a little bit of self promotion 🙂
To start with, commitment is a word that i’ve been cautious of using or even facing up to over the past few years. I’d do something but still try to keep a few other things going, just in case the first one messed up…
It’s kind of like accepting lots of school places for your kids, even if you’ve got no intention of sending them there… but just in case they don’t get the one you want!
The trouble with this though, is that when you’re doing several things at once, fuzziness occurs in your brain!
You’ve got no focus and spend the day chasing your tail and then not really getting any visible progression.
Commitment is defined as:
“pledged or bound to a certain course or policy; dedicated”
So it means forsaking everything else you hear, and following that path until successful. The clients I work with, both on personal training & group classes, in varying degrees commit to learning from me and achieving their fitness and toning goals through my methods. The ones who commit more, succeed more… funny that! 😛
However, some people’s problems start when advice is taken from one source. Then after that, another piece of advice is taken, from another source, and followed along with the original advice, which may be contradictory to the first advice anyway.
This creates confusion, which leads to diminished results, and then the person usually sacks both pieces of advice and goes back to their original habit.
If you commit to something, you then have to be aware of all the negativity, counter-advice, criticism disguised as support, and general second guessing you’ll receive… but stay strong! 😀
The post i did a while ago, about exercise headphones was a tongue in cheek way of saying that you need to block out (using earphones) all the counter advice and give the current path you’re on a chance.
There needs to be a significant enough amount of time for you to do your research via experiencing the advice, to then make a decision on whether it’s working or not.
Imagine there’s a fork in the road, and you decide to follow both… well, you can’t!
This is why we get such strong results at G Fit, where all the members are singing from the same hymn sheet, being immersed in a proven method that gets results… and forsaking every other piece of advice they get.
Simply by committing to one course, and before you even start it, promising to not take other people’s advice whilst you do it. This is the only way to succeed.
How can you know something works unless you’ve tried it? This begs the question, where did the source of the information come from? what do they base their “advice” on?
…but that’s a story for another time.
My point is that, find something that you can see works, has evidence to back it up, is easy to follow, and you can slot into your life.
Yes it would be nice to be able to get a “perfect” meal plan for a client, and have them eat nothing but chicken salads after i’ve worked my magic. No longer are they subject to cokes, takeaways and ready meals… but it doesn’t work like that!
G Fit offers ALL the different types of products you need now, and they’re all proven. Not by members that were with us a while ago, but by success stories that you meet along your journey:
- A mum of two who’s lost 3 inches off her waist in the first four weeks, at 52 years old
- A 21 yr old who was “always big” and then loses 2 stone in a matter of 8-10 weeks
The list goes on, and if you’re ready to make a change, you need to look at the support you’re getting, and the information you’re following –
Are you committed?
Are you keeping your fingers in lots of different pies?
Because the only way it will work is by following one course of action… with FOCUS!
