I'll start on Monday
I really need to make a change
None of my clothes fit anymore
I'm so embarrassed about how I look
I feel tired ALL the time
I always fail at diets
I don't know where or how to start, it's all too overwhelming
Does any of this resonate with you?
This was me 20 years ago (and so much worse). I cared approximately zero percent about my health, fitness and wellbeing. I cared much more about nightclubs, DJ's, partying and drinking. As time went on, I looked and felt sick, my mental health was deteriorating and I knew I had to change this lifestyle ASAP.
An opportunity arose for me to relocate with work and I took this as a sign to clean up my overall health. I joined a gym hired a personal trainer (because I had no clue about programming or technique), and started my lifelong journey of lifting weights.
I changed the food I ate, prioritised protein, vegetables, wholegrains and good fats. I started seeing results, but more importantly feeling 100% better. I did the work, the hard way, there was no magic pills to do it for me- I learnt to cook healthy balanced meals, cut out alcohol and trained 5 days a week.
I went from over 30% bodyfat to 21% in 6 months. The effects of lifting weights completely changed my body shape, my mental health, and my outlook on life. I became stronger from the inside out. I was honouring my word, putting myself first and the results were coming. Action first- results come second, this is how making a change works.
I never could've done this on my own. My fantastic personal trainer Tony, was a wealth of knowledge, guidance, and he pushed me just enough every session. He was my cheerleader, support system and secret weapon. This is the power of having a coach. It is worth the investment 10 fold and makes the journey quicker, easier and more enjoyable.
Doing the work creates the change. I challenge you to start today, contact me to see if we are a good fit, I will give you tough love, I have been working in the industry for 20 years now, I have heard all the excuses before. Take responsibility of the past, dump the excuses and let's get down to business to create the future you want.
