If there’s one piece of advice I can give to those of you out there struggling to get results with your health and fitness it’s…
HIRE A PERSONAL TRAINER
I wish I would have done this when I started out. That way I wouldn’t have wasted years – following workout routines that weren’t suitable for me from the likes of Men’s Health magazine!
I could have saved myself years of frustration – due to my lack of results.
I hadn’t a clue what I was doing back then…
I’d read an article online about how carbs were bad for you (they’re not by the way!) and believe it – so I didn’t eat carbs for a month!
Then I read something else, so I’d try that!
On and on…
VERY LITTLE PROGRESS.
I finally realised ‘how much rubbish info’ is out there on the web and in magazines!
It wasn’t until I invested in coaching that I started to understand how it all works and actually how simple it can be to get results.
If I added up all that I’ve spent over the years on supplements, magazines, fancy gym gimmicks, and protein shakes….
It would be in the thousands!
In hindsight I would have spent that money on a really good coach and gotten a better return on my investment.
If you are struggling, then nip it in the bud and hire a professional.
“But I can’t afford it?”
That may well be true and if this is the case, then why not try semi private personal training or group classes?
I would always recommend 1-1 coaching over group PT because you’ll get more attention on what YOU need.
Lots of people who say they can’t afford personal training…
- Spend £20 a week on takeouts
- Smoke 10 cigs a day (£5 I think?)
- Buy clothes all the time
- Spend money on junk food
- Nails, hair, makeup
I challenge you to keep track of what you spend your money on.
If you re-evaluate your spending habits I bet that lots of you reading this will now be able to afford PT at least 1-2x per week.
Cut back on the areas that don’t serve you very much and invest in things that will lead to results, make you happier and give YOU the greatest chance of a longer and better quality of life.
