As a Personal Trainer in Sandycove every day we get bombarded with health and fitness related questions. The sad truth is that most people don’t want our advice they just want you to tell them they are right. Most people are ask holes.
The reality is to get in great shape is hard work.
Most people don’t want to change there behaviours and make sacrifices to get what's important to them. It is human nature to avoid pain (going to the gym) and move towards pleasure (stay at home with ice-cream and the feet up).
Look at your goal.
Look at your behaviour.
And ask yourself does my goal match my behaviour?
If not something needs to change, 99.99% of the population have a hard time asking for help. Culturally you were taught that independence is the best thing there is. Sometimes there is even shame in asking for help. In reality if you want to make progress you need expert help. Google is a great tool and all the fitness and nutrition info you could ever need is out there.
The problem is information overload, there is to much information to process and as a result you become paralysed, this causes stress which is basically emotional pain and you seek out pleasure to balance it out.
It's the job of an expert to sort through all the information and bring clarity to your goal.
As a personal trainers in Sandycove it's our job to find out how to optimise your efforts to get you to your goal as fast as possible.We always start by asking:
1. What do you want ?
2. Why do you want it ?
3. Whats stopped you getting it in the past ?
Everybody’s goals come back to three things.
Looking better, feeling better, moving better, or some combination of the three.
When we know what you want and why you want it's easy to show you how to get it. Most people never get what they truly want in life for fear of failure. You can fail at what you don’t want in life so you might as well take a chance.
