You lose some weight
You put it back on
You lose some weight
You put it back on (more than last time though)
The cycle goes on and we see it all the
time when ladies comes and enquire with us.
Diet after diet.
Who do you believe?
The fitness and weight loss industry is full of
So what do you do?
Accept that things will never change and that
yo-yo weight loss is just the way it is.
or is there something else that you’ve been missing.
Let’s call it a missing secret ingredient.
(which I will come to in just a sec)
First let’s look at addressing a really important question:
Why do so many people that join a traditional Gym
not succeed in achieving their health and fitness
(less than 10%)
Here’s what happens…
People get sucked in to the warm showers, the brand
the nice pool,
the yoga classes,
the cafe that serves cake (hey if you’ve just had a workout
you’ve earned the right to eat cake, right?)
Yet when it comes to actually going from a size 14 to a size
10 you need a bit more than a nice warm shower and
post workout hairdryer.
Go into any gym up and down the country and you
will find most (around 90%) of women either in
some kind of zumba or boxercise class or
on the treadmill / cross trainer / bike.
After 3-6 weeks of this, same routine…
it gets a bit boring.
The body has started to adapt to the exercise
and the initial stress it was put under
and progress slows down.
Let me ask you this.
When you wanted to learn how to drive
did you try and figure it out for yourself
– you know watch a few home videos,
listen to what your friends said and then
hey presto you were able to drive
did you pay a professional to teach you
how to drive?
When you pay someone that holds you
accountable (if you book an appointment with
your driving instructor then unless you’re really
ill you’re not going to miss it.) you start to
bring your goal (passing your driving test)
a lot closer.
You put the work in.
You understand that there might be a bit of homework.
You understand that if you DON’T stick to the
plan and do what your instructor says that
you’re unlikely to pass your test.
You basically set your goal, then get guidance and
help from a professional to help you get there.
You understand that YOU have to then put the
assuming you do, you WILL pass.
Losing weight and getting fit
IS NO DIFFERENT!!!
Having a gym membership is just like
buying a new car.
It’s nice to have all of those facilities
(just like the bells and whistles with a car)
but if you don’t know the plan
that you need to follow specifically for you
then you’re just fumbling your way through.
It’s a bit like trying to pass your driving test
by buying a new car and then learning how to
drive by watching Youtube videos!
This is why we provide an accountability structure
to all of our members.
For those that want to be held accountable
(and we recommend everyone does)
we regularly track weight, body fat %
and through our accountability forms
we monitor energy levels, water consumption,
food intake, sleep patterns etc.
So we provide the right plan in the first place
(exercise routines – that are never the same so
you don’t get bored
recipe guides etc)
but they we also provide the secret ingredient
that leads to such a high success rate…..
That’s when the magic happens.
That’s when RESULTS take place.
That’s the difference between yo-yo’ing
and having the body you’ve always wanted.
No need for magic pills and super processed
meal replacement shakes..
It’s more simple than that.
Doesn’t mean it’s easy though.
Just like passing your driving test!!
