Fort Worth Personal Trainer: What’s REALLY Holding You Back and 5 Steps to Fix It
One of the biggest misconceptions for people that are struggling to lose weight and get in shape are the things they think are holding them back, and what is REALLY Holding them back.
You tell yourself it’s your…
-Lack of time
-Don’t know where to start
-How do I even get there
-I’ll be bored
-I’ve tried and failed in the past
-No one thinks this is a good idea
When in fact the #1 phrase that holds you back is the…
What if I look stupid?
What if I’m the fattest person in the room, building, state?
What if I’m asked to do an exercise I can’t do?
What if I fall off the treadmill and die of embarrassment?
What if I can’t afford this for the next 5-10 years (yes, I’ve heard this)?
What if my spouse, doctor, children don’t want me to workout?
What if I have to buy all new
clothes (You will ,guaranteed)?
It’s not the time, the money,
or the effort that stops most
It’s the “What if’s”
There’s ONLY one cure for the “what if’s” and that’s..
Have you heard of the phrase
“Action alleviates anxiety”
I like that quote so much, because I see it working with clients all the time.
A new client will be super-nervous before we begin and 5 minutes into their first workout they’re locked in, focused, and in the zone.. and all the “what if’s” are gone.
The action alleviates the anxiety.
You may have heard me talk about the 5 Steps to taking Action from Dan Kennedy before.
But they’re so good I want to share them again.
Dan isn’t a fitness expert but he is a “get it done” expert.
He has his own weight loss success story as 8 years ago he was told he was on the road to type 2 diabetes.
He immediately changed his diet and kicked in an exercise program with the help of Dr. Cooper from the Cooper Clinic in Dallas.
He quickly peeled off 45 pounds. By keeping that off and watching his carbs and blood sugar he been able to keep his diabetes under control without medication.
Here are Dan’s 5 Action Steps to getting more done.
You can definitely apply these to your fat-loss get in shape goals and you’re going to see much better results in less time.
I’ll give you his step by step then how you can apply it to fat loss.
Dan Kennedy’s action steps to getting more done.
1) Start Immediately-Once you identify something you want, start immediately.
(Join our Bootcamp or PT program NOW! Join a gym and start working out TODAY not tomorrow or next week. Thinking about it time is over action time is here.)
2) Take Visible Action-So other’s know you’re serious
(Clean out all the junk food from your kitchen, tell your co-workers you’re not available 5-6pm M/T/TH you’re working out and it’s not negotiable)
3) Take Simultaneous Action, not Sequential- Do lots of things at once.
(Start exercising and eating better at the same time. Exercise without a change in diet leads no where. Dieting without exercise is a losing game and you end up skinny-fat)
4) Be Congruent with What You Say-
(Tell everyone you know you’re going to lose 10 pounds in 30 days. Your friends will support you, will help and cheer you along the way. Your frenemies can stew while you hit your goals.)
5) Leverage Work-Rather than doing new
work all the time.
(Food journals work because you can always refer back to what was working. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel. You just need a good day or week to work off of)
So there’s your 5 steps you can take to ward off the “what if’s” and get moving in the direction of your fitness goals.
Take lots of action,
And take it right now!
