What does it take for someone to realize their obstacles were not as REAL/BIG as they thought before?
The person I am pictured with hadn't allowed anyone to take their picture in 10yrs! Yet when I asked them if I could and post about it, they said absolutely! They decided as of Jan 1st to get their life back and dropped from 480lbs to 441lbs. We have dropped another 12lbs the past 2 weeks training in person and online to help hold them even more accountable and they feel A LOT better already. If you have thought to yourself for quite some time I really need to workout, or lose this 10, 20, 30, 50, 80lbs, etc... get on it! Time is going to pass anyways you may as well put it to the best use possible.
Sometimes all it takes is ONE decision and at least ONE person believing in you to realize your biggest obstacle will always be YOU!
If you workout right now or even if you haven't started yet lets pretend you workout 5 days a week. Well in month 1 you're working out 5 days a week and say in month 3 it's still 5 days a week. Lets say in month 6 and month 12 it's STILL 5 days a week.
So here's the deal. You're not working out MORE time in this scenario but your work capacity/what you can get done in a workout increases along with your resting metabolism by us adding lean muscle tissue from month 1 to month 12 SIGNIFICANTLY!
Why should you care?
You should care because that "good avalanche" of work capacity allowing you to do more, and more, and more will get you into MUCH better shape over time. As it picks up speed it picks up more and more speed. Your workouts become progressively more intense overtime allowing your body continued success. Allowing you to cover A LOT more ground in the same amount of time in the future!
When you see good results without being "perfect" in the first few months and feel so much better already KNOW that the best is yet to come!
(This person trains with me online and was by no means perfect during this 3 month time frame. We even started out slow and had some hiccups. They started though, and have gotten better and better and in 3 MORE months it'll be light years different :) )
If you have tendinitis or any arm injury dead lifting or holding weight might not be possible right now. You also might be doing at home workouts and need a way to make it harder. Check out this awesome option to challenge your body while your on the mend or away from other options!
When I say that one of my MAJOR STRENGTHS is adapting training to work around injuries, limitations and/or current deficiencies. I'm NOT kidding!
✔ This young man is 87 years old, and a cancer survivor!
✔ His wife wanted him to workout so he didn't "start looking like an old man."
✔ He wanted to start training with me because he wanted to improve and didn't like the fact he didn't feel as able bodied the last 6 months.
✔ When we first met he told me he got polio right before the vaccine came out so somethings just took "longer." Your mindset is everything.
✔ At a time when most people WELL before 87 pack it in here he is out there kicking ass!
✔ He feels better, is stronger, and is already MUCH steadier!
✔ He found me on google! Normally that's NOT a big deal but he's 87! He's adapted and been open to learning new things as he's aged.
✔ Fitness has different stages. This man wants more years, independence and quality of life. My only wish is I would have met him even sooner!
