Women trainers make me want to punch walls.
Why do they all talk to their clients like they’re babies?
“Feed your spirit.”
“Don’t exercise if you don’t feel like it.”
“It is important for your mind-body connection.”
“Reclaim your SEXY!”
“Repeat your mantras every day!”
And the number one worst offender is: “Oh, just make sure to try and do this program like two times a week.”
Two times a week is never going to form a habit. Habits are the building blocks of life. It is so easy to skip something if you only do it twice a week.
It doesn’t matter if you simply walk around your block, but do it every single damn day.
If you are serious about getting in shape and getting your health back, you have to focus on HABITS.
But your pseudo-trainers don’t want to tell you that because god forbid you may have to work your ass off and not “honor your spirit” or whatever horseshit they feed you. Getting in shape requires hard work.
Here are some questions you need to ask yourself RIGHT NOW:
1. Have you been following one program for more than two months?
2. If you have been, are you getting the results you want?
If your answer is yes, keep going! If your answer is no, then why in the fuck are you still following that program?
90% of the time there is nothing wrong with YOU and everything wrong with the place you got the program.
Did you know it takes an average of six weeks to actually build muscle? So any program under that amount of time that preaches “toning” “muscle building” or anything along those lines is a lie. Sure, you can make the muscles swell, which is a vital part to the muscle-building process, but understand that illusion is swelling not actual muscle.
Not to mention, muscle is essential to the fat-burning process.
“See, every pound of muscle burns between 50 and 150 calories a day just to sustain itself, while every pound of fat only feeds on 1 to 3 calories.” –Dr. Oz
So if they’re telling you to simply only do cardio/yoga, that’s probably why you aren’t seeing the results you want. You need muscle. That’s that.
The only way you can succeed is to create a new habit. Study habit formation, it will change your life.
