If you are looking to make a change it’s not an hour of exercise per week you need help with.
It’s the support outside of that gym session. Sure a trainer beasting you in the gym is fun and exercise is great and you’ll feel good it. But to make changes you need to go beyond that. You need to look past someone counting how many burpees you’ve done. To someone who can give you support outside of that gym session.
I’ve seen people that have had trainers for years and made zero change. That’s because one hour of the week that you exercise is futile when it comes to improving your health. It’s a drop in the ocean.
As I said it will make you feel good for having done it but if you don’t have your nutrition on point it doesn’t matter. if you don’t have your sleep and stress managed then you aren’t getting to the crux of it.
It’s like putting a plaster on a broken arm
Lifestyle choices, the things that you’ve engrained over the years. Are the things that have got you into this situation. One hour of beasting a week isn’t going to help.
And what happens outside of that gym session with a trainer? You’ll have a vague idea of what to do from the sessions you’ve had but as soon as you walk out of the gym. You are on your own. This is tragic because that one hour in the gym accounts for only 4% of your day.
The other 96% is going to be a guessing game, the foods you eat your sleep cycle, how you manage stress, your activity. Plus all the other things that encompass your quality of life.
Without knowing what to do for the rest of the week you are stuck. Unaware of what you need to do to change your body nor do you have the mindset to facilitate change.
That one hour with a trainer does nothing to help you understand your metabolic rate. To determine the calories you need for fat loss and improving your energy. What needs to be a part of your diet to optimize testosterone levels and ensure you are helping keep lean mass. What exercise frequency and type you need to build muscle. Mitigate stress and elevate testosterone levels. What your sleep cycle looks like to ensure that you are energized. So you have focus and improved executive function.
Don’t get me wrong it’s admirable taking action to make a change but when you are not changing. It’s a poor investment. And it’s not the trainer’s fault, I’m sure they’re doing the best. But unfortunately, the entry standard into the fitness industry is low.
Gym staff will be able to guide you with exercise techniques. But someone with a Degree in sports science will have advanced knowledge of physiology. To program your sessions and recommend what exercise is relevant to your goal.
A Nutritionist will be able to plan out your diet to ensure that you achieve your goal of getting leaner. Whilst ensuring that you adjust your diet to optimise your energy and productivity. Increasing your testosterone levels.
An NLP Practitioner will help you manage stress. And ensure that cortisol doesn’t diminish your vitality and energy.
This is why it would be prudent to have a health coach in your corner. Someone qualified in all those areas. Who can program your lifestyle to improve your health.
Ask yourself ‘what is the cost of not doing so?’ To continue on spending thousands on trainers whilst making no change. Wasting time getting nowhere with the newest fad diet that claims to be better than the last fad diet. To carry on feeling tired, exhausted, and stressed.
That is going to be very costly in terms of time and money. Not to mention the toll on your health.
