Why Do I Need
Personal Training -
because you are unique
Because no two people are the same. Everyone's body is unique and responds differently to injury and pain and to different types of training. As our bodies adapt, the training needs to change and progress. Personal training is not just about the physical but also neurological challenges and adaptations that take place. No one program, however effective it once was, will suit everyone, or even the one person it was designed for, for any length of time. Everyone is unique as are the solutions to their training needs and goals.
Habit of Success
"What you do consistently and repeatedly grows stronger. And that provides you with nearly unlimited opportunity.Success is not a secret that is hidden from you. Success is a habit that is readily available to you.Life is made up of moment after moment. Point all those moments in the same direction, and truly magnificent achievements will come about.There are very few things of value that you can create instantly. Yet when you expand your horizon to a few weeks or months, the possibilities for achievement increase dramatically.The hours and the days will pass whether you make use of them or not. Choose to focus your energy in a specific direction, again and again, and put the power of time to work for you.Keep your thoughts, your words and your actions pointed in the direction you would most like to go. Develop the habit of success, and with it you can create whatever you choose".
If you don’t plan well, you plan to fail. No one ‘program’ will ever get you to your goals. You need a strategy of how to get your body reacting to your workouts the way you want it, with nutritional guidance that suits your lifestyle and a plan to manage it all in the the time frame you have available. What are your goals? Do you have a clear plan to get there? If you don’t, you need to book in and get one. If you aim at nothing you can be sure to hit it every time! Give yourself a break and make sure that you are spending your time at the gym efficiently. Have confidence in knowing that what you are doing and how you are doing it is actually helping you achieve your goals - not just going round in circles!
There are no shortcuts to any place worth going!
Having just one type of workout and doing just that one thing forever will not work. You will get initial changes - but if you do not vary the type of workouts you are doing every 4-6 weeks or so, ie; progress the stimulus - the very cleverly put together human machine called your body, will intelligently adapt to what you are doing and it will stop giving you physiological changes. That means you will stop getting results!! Everybody's body is different and different people react very differently to the same kind of workout so find someone who has had the experience with peoples variations in body type and temperament. Have you ever wondered why most new gym people quit after 3 months?
Listen to Harry's story when he joined the gym with a friend...
In his initial keenness Harry worked hard with lots of gusto and did his ‘program’ as often as he could. After 4 weeks he felt great and even started to tone up a bit.
After 8 weeks he started to notice that he didn’t feel so energized from his workouts and his old food cravings (and occasional extra beer) started to return. His friend however was doing regular personal training sessions with a trainer and was doing different interesting workouts every time he came in. Harry though felt he was getting quite good at his...
9 weeks and Harry was finding it harder to motivate himself - he just told himself to harden up and get on with it and get back on track…
At 10 weeks he started to notice that his mate who was consistently training with his trainer and still getting different workouts every week (and looking like he was actually enjoying it!) was still feeling great and was actually starting to look great too. He was walking taller and looking stronger and more confident …
Week 11 Harry gave himself a week off as he thought perhaps he had been a bit hard on himself…
Week 12 Harry went back to the gym and did his ‘program’ and felt sore and tired from having a week off and decided that this workout thing was just not for him.
Harry quit. Week 15 - the mate Harry joined the gym with is spotted running round the park with his kids in his singlet (how dare he!!) showing off his now toned and more muscular arms…and that beer gut has disappeared - how dare he - what a skite!
