When we do our initial consultation with clients we always ask them why they think they struggle with their health and fitness.
One of the most common replies is laziness but for many of these people thats not really the case. Not when you dig a bit deeper.
When you look at a lot of unhealthy peoples lifestyles you’ll see that they all eat junk food, generally have very busy lives (work, family commitments, etc.) and have built up a ton of bad habits:
- late to bed
- no exercise
- watching a lot of mindless tv
When you put all this together you feel like shit, and when you feel like shit your head gets melted and cluttered. Common sense often goes out the window and your ability and enthusiasm for maintain a decent level of health gets massively diminished.
It becomes very normal to think that there is nothing wrong with drinking a litre of coke a day, smoking 10-20 cigarettes daily, getting 5 hours sleep, going without exercise for years at a time or downing 16 pints a week.
YOLO (You only live once >>>> only found this out recently myself)
Your brain doesn’t function properly and you’re energy levels get so low that peeling yourself off the couch to do a bit of exercise or cook a healthy meal can be hell. Much easier to stick to your comfort zone, continue eating junk, sitting on the couch and feeding into the cycle of gaining weight, zapping your energy and all that nasty stuff.
But here’s the the light at the end of the tunnel. Feeling that way is simply a normal response to how you are living your life. It’s not that your are a naturally lazy person. It’s more likely that your daily lifestyle choices are sucking the life out of you and therefore removing your ‘get-up-and-go’.
So many of our clients who told us at the start that they were lazy are now fitter than they ever thought possible. Once they removed the majority of the processed junk food from their daily nutrition, started exercising a few times a week (after mustering up the energy to get started in the first place), got hydrated and took control of their sleeping patterns again.
- Several ‘lazy’ clients now exercise 3+ days a week
- Several more ‘lazy’ clients are now banging out chin ups, push ups and kettle bell swings
- More ‘lazy’ clients have quit cigarettes, dropped 17% body fat and been taken off medication by their doctors
- And not to forget the ‘lazy’ who now have the ability to play with their children, the confidence to take on new jobs and the energy to bounce out of bed at 6am in the morning
The amount of people I’ve seen who thought they were lazy and now look back and think “I can’t believe I used to live my life like that” is unreal.
And I won’t lie to you. It was tough for them to get started at first because there are so many mental challenges to overcome- time, financial investment, deeply-entrenched habits that don’t go easily, etc. But if you were to look at those people now you’d think, “It’s fine for them, they’s naturally fit”.
Little do you know the effort they had to put in at the start.
Getting your mindset right and taking the first step is and always will be the hardest part of the journey for most people, but it’s something that still needs to be done if you are not happy with your current health and fitness situation.
But don’t get me wrong. You could be 100% lazy- that’s also a possibility!
But if you’re serious about doing it, here’s a great opportunity for you to get started.
On Thursday 29th October we’ll be hosting a SUSTAINABLE HEALTH & FAT LOSS talk in our facility to show you exactly how these clients achieved what you are looking to achieve.
We only have 15 places available and there are only a few days left to register. If you want to know how to retake control of your health and fitness and live the quality of life that you want, then click here
