Personal training is an incorrect title these days in my opinion. Or at least it should be. It suggests that training clients is just exercise based.
The trouble is, if you want results, you have to nail your nutrition. You can’t out train a bad diet, no matter how much you do.
What you put in your mouth constitutes 80% of your result. Then you can focus on the physical aspect.
Too many trainers miss this, and purely concentrate on what exercises to perform. I’m not saying it doesn’t matter, but you need to have an all round approach. In fact, it goes further than even just nutrition and exercise. Sleep, stress management, hormone manipulation. You don’t get this from your local gym instructor I bet? I may be wrong.
A lot of the industry like any other is geared towards making money, rather than helping you and improving your health.
We all have to make money, however my passion goes more deeply towards trying to solve a nations problem of obesity.
This sounds pretentious I know, but it’s true.
I think we all need educating better on the importance of various issues to do with health.
I was a fat kid, and going into my early twenties a big guy. I’m so pleased I found something inside myself to improve.
If I kept going along the same path of crappy food, smoking, and drinking lots of beer, I dread to think where I would be now.
This is, in my opinion, what drives me now, and to an extent why I believe I can improve clients with more efficiency and motivation than some others.
I have been there myself, and I know what is going through some clients minds. giving up is the easiest option to take when you have such low confidence. I won’t let this happen.
My mission is to try and spread a message about achieving optimal health for an individual. Setting realistic goals and motivating to improve you!
This is why I constantly read about varying views on nutrition from the worlds leading scientists and fitness gurus.
A lot of the magazines and local trainers are frightened to go against the grain and speak out about how to eat correctly.
My opinion, as well as a lot of others is quite different, and probably contravercial as it strays away from what our government tells us we should be eating.
If most of us are eating within the government guidelines, why is there such an obesity epidemic?
Either people rapidly over eat, or we are being told the wrong information.
Probably a mixture of the two, however if you eat the way I think we all should, it’ is virtually impossible to eat more than your body requires for health.
I could spout on all day about this subject, which is why I have written an ebook about the subject, as well as some other really useful information about becoming a better version of you.
Keep clean, stay lean.
