I'm feeling feisty, guys! After dropping all those truth bombs on my Facebook Live yesterday, I feel compelled to continue with my take-no-prisoners form of communication!
So, here goes; I'm never going to apologize for expecting a lot from the people I work with. To have gotten to the point where you contact me for help, everything else you have tried alone, or with other trainers/coaches, has not worked. Let me say that again - everything else you have tried has. not. worked. Regardless of wether you are trying to lose weight or gain weight or improve your performance, something you have seen me do/say/offer struck enough of a chord with you that you thought this may be the answer. I'm here to tell you that it is. I wholeheartedly believe that the tools and expertise I have to offer you are exactly what you have been looking for and I guarantee that you will get the results you want. Yes, I said it; I guarantee you will get the results that you want. And there is no catch - we make an agreement that you will commit to X program and meal plan for X number of days and that's it! As long as you live up to your end of the bargain, you are on the road to making lasting positive change in your life.
Notice what I said there - "as long as you live up to your end of the bargain...". There is no question about me being all in for you; this is more than my job; supporting you, holding you accountable, motivating you is my passion. I take that responsibility VERY seriously and it's something that I am very good at. The only variable in this equation is you. Sorry, not sorry to be so blunt but you are the only thing standing between where you are now and where you want to go.
This is real life! If you truly want to transform the areas of your life that are unsatisfactory, you have to be willing to put in the work. You have to be committed to going where you have never gone before, physically and mentally. If you are not ready for that, you are not ready for this journey. You are not ready for me!
Now, I know I may sound mean, but truly I'm not! I just get very fired up about being in a position to advocate for you as you make these commitments. I have had clients that are so excited and focused when they sign up to begin a program and, for the first few days, maybe the first few weeks, they are all in. But as soon as things start to get uncomfortable, they lose the fire. They lose focus and, although I don't let them quit, they take their foot off the accelerator and so start to stall their progress. When this happens, I can talk and lead by example until I'm on my knees but I CAN'T DO IT FOR YOU! You have to continue to push forward with the same focus on your goals that you had when you started, even if that mood has long since left you. That's the true meaning of commitment. And I don't expect you to love every minute of the process - I certainly don't - but you have to be so committed to the end-result that the level of discomfort to get there doesn't matter.
Again, sorry, not sorry but as Tim Grover (author of 'Relentless') says, "I cannot help people committed to failure".
The only person who should be more committed to your goals than your coach is you.
I'm here. If you are ready, let's go!
