Bulletproof your New Years resolutions
Now despite the horrendous amount of negativity towards the entire plethora of people that will be joining the gym into the new year. It is nevertheless for many a turning point or point of reference.
Just like a Monday is the start of a new week and people plan to start a new thing or approach. This is an entire new year and people like to embrace that significant date.
My industry is very short sited in that those within it often fail to forget how they started. That once they were the beginner or the one looking to resolve a part of their life.
Without further ado I’m going to share with all of you budding people some tips to success.
1. Remember that any change is positive however little it may be. It took your advisors and coaches years to get to the style of lifestyle and training intensity they’re at. Don’t expect to be there now. Coaches, don’t treat your clients like YOU
2. Any change must be sustainable. Be realistic and anything you plan to do take a long hard look at it and ask yourself ‘could I do this long term?’
Hitting the gym 5 days a week after not going at all is commendable but NOT sustainable and NOT going to last.
If when you look at your new diet and all you do is fantasise about when you come off it its immediately NON sustainable.
Coaches if what you present is followed by ‘how long do I have to do this for?’ It’s probably non-sustainable and badly planned.
A year is 365 days of progress. One week in 4 is 84 days.
3. Details don’t count as much as you think. Get your calories levelled out eat more protein and eat 4x a day minimum. Eating more meals won’t increase your metabolism.
4. Don’t play all your hands at once. Don’t buy fat burners or start doing silly amounts of CV till it’s needed.
You want longevity not speed I assure you.
5. There is no need initially from not training to ‘training’. The progression from not training is firstly being more active.
6. Progression is slightly less calories, more exercise and more than anything, consistency. Be consistent. A start is taking what you eat weekly and getting it consistent. Assess and then adjust. Inconsistency means you will eat more when you exercise more. That’s what the human body does.
7. Don’t be afraid of coaches or delay learning what you need to learn until you ‘get fit’ or ‘lose some weight’
8. Don’t use scales. Progression will NOT be linear with regards weight loss. If your weight creeps up your biggest question will be. ‘Did I do whatever I/we planned’
It’s not luck so I won’t wish you that but get to it!!!
