The Muscle Lines studio has been very busy interviewing new clients these days. There seems to be a common misunderstanding about a few issues on reaching goals. Clients come in ordering up what I like to call celebrity bodies, these are bodies that are well above average and looking like fitness models.
It’s great to aspire to something more but nothing is achievable with out constant focused effort, however the amount of work that it takes to achieve and maintain this look is not for the average person.
There are many things to consider when ordering up a body from your trainer. Some of the questions I ask in my consultations are:
How much time per week do you have to commit to these goal?
What is your line of profession how many hours a week do you work?
Do you have children if so how many and what age?
One of the most important questions I ask is how are you at following structure because there is going to be a lot of accountability involved and can you stick with guidelines for long periods of time? My next question is one of the most important ones in reaching your celebrity body goals. “What are you willing to give up to get what you want?”
You must be willing to do everything it takes to reach your goal. Mentally you must keep positive each day, remember your mind is the leader. If your mind is positive and on track your body will follow.
Affirmations of success are helpful. If you don’t fully believe in yourself and your goals the obstacles that appear will stop you in your tracks.
Planning your attack so that when the obstacles come along you just step over them and continue on your path to success.
Being super fit and healthy is a decision, you must decide each day to make choices that move you closer towards your goals. There will be days and weeks that are hard and you will want to give up, but remembering the bigger picture of your goals and why you decide you wanted them in the first place can help you to forge on. Having a professional on your side can be the difference maker.
In my many years of personal training, I have noticed clients that have reached their ultimate goals have a few things in common; the ability to stay focused on the big picture and stay calm when things don’t feel like they are working; and be ready to change. We must do everything we can to achieve the ultimate goal and patience will defiantly be required.
When ordering up your new body remember be ready to commit fully, make sure your goals match the time you can spend on them. Get a clear understanding of how much time per week you will need to achieve this goal.
If you still want the celebrity bodies then go after it, commit to the scheduled workouts along with highly structure nutrition plans, and be ready to say no when you need to. In my years of coaching and training there has never been a client that has reached goals and is disappointed with the result.
