This is one of those eternal struggles that people go through – they know what it takes to keep fit and lose weight but they are not doing what they know they need to. The question is why? And often why is also the answer…
What most people need to stay focused on a goal is a big WHY they need to have a clear idea about WHY they have decided to get fit and WHY they want to take on a personal trainer to help them and WHY they will stay focused on what they need to do to until they reach their goals.
Knowing your WHY keeps you focused on your end result. It helps you achieve whatever it is you have set your mind to for however long it takes.
Clients who are not fully focused on why they are exercising end up cancelling appointments at the last minute but if you know your WHY you tend to stick to your appointment because you know why you are doing it in the first place.
We all know that exercise is great for the body but when you are unfit, overweight, feeling low, and having to make a lifestyle shift to start exercise it can be really hard to keep going, which is exactly why you take on a personal trainer to help you get through that.
Knowing isn’t enough. We know exercise is good for us, we know eating well is better for our bodies, we know smoking will cause some major diseases and yet people still don’t exercise, eat well and they smoke. So KNOWING isn’t enough. You need something much bigger than just knowing – you need a reason to stay focused… and that is where your WHY comes in.
A big WHY for someone who has had a heart attack is of course to avoid death or to avoid another major illness. Its sad how many people let their health get so bad that they have to wait for a major event like that to happen before they take life seriously.
Some people have a WHY because they are getting married or going on holiday and that keeps them focused on their goal to keep fit months before it is due to happen.
Maybe you can’t run rounds with the kids without needing to stop for breath or you can’t walk up a flight of stairs without stopping…. whatever your reason you can use it to keep exercising and keep going.
You need to know what drives and motivates you to exercise because when you find it you will make your fit hot body possible!
