Advice from a person felt the difference
These are the people who promise to start eating right or do sports after an event. Or tomorrow. Or the winter, or summer, may pass from Monday, New Year, after Easter…
They are constantly waiting for something. And so, all the events, all the holidays, all the Mondays … and they wait.
Life does not get easier. Free time is no more. There are new events, new Mondays, but also new problems.
In the meantime, their body is broken. Muscle mass disappeared. There is sarcopenia, gout, illnesses, wrinkles … stretch marks and orange skin are their smallest problems.
And over time, they get used to even their unpleasant looks, finding “big people” stores. Going up the stairs is a pain for them, even walking the same almost instantly gets tired.
The more they wait, the harder they will begin!
What if you met here?
Trust a nutrition coach. Achieving a result and feeling better and with a minimum of fitness, plan 2-3 hours a week for fitness, swimming or whatever you like best.
Make these hours the highest priority and fight them with everyone who tries to hinder or demotivate you! Turn them together with proper nutrition into a part of your life!
2. Irreparable gadgets
These people are consuming too many calories and cannot even imagine that they will give up something tasty. For them, it is enough for the food to be fresh or “from the countryside” for it to be healthy and not at all and consider switching to proper nutrition.
Often people come to us who start from the door: “I want to lose weight, I will do everything you tell me, just don’t deprive me of the cake before bed!” half a loaf of bread, I’m not. I will never give up on that! ” We begin to wonder why they bothered to come to us.
We are looking for some compromise and tricks to give up our greed little by little, if they do not, they cannot have a positive result. With us the results are always 50×50 – we will do our best, but we cannot force anyone to feel good.
Gourmets usually equate “healthy” with “tasteless” food.
The culinary entertainment we organize convinces ourselves that this is not the case at all, but it is difficult to visit them.
There comes a time when even the most irreverent gourmets realize that their love for sweets and harmful foods is not their “taste” for food, but an unacknowledged inability to cook. Or excessive tolerance for the choices of children, who are often far from right, but for peace, parents often even tolerate them.
If you still think that chips, soda, croissants, candy and cake are the perfect food, think! You have eating habits at the age of five. It’s time to grow up.
Trust a nutrition coach who, in small and painless steps, will find your true taste for good food. You own it, but you put it to sleep …
3. Injured (physically or not quite)
These people will never start living properly, justified by old traumas.
Yes, they are well aware that workouts are necessary for health and will gladly resume them, but a few years ago they injured their knee and it still clicks when walking and hurts when the weather changes.
Or they have a blood vessel damage that they read on the Internet or EWC (a woman told them) that it is genetic and therefore cannot be changed in any way, they have to put up with.
What kind of sport are we talking about?!
But when these traumatized people are completely healed (obviously never), then they will certainly start training again.
Each of them comes to this state differently. Athletes may have been outstanding. But they may just start playing sports, get a little traumatic, or feel pain somewhere and immediately decide that sports are harmful and painful – far from such work!
Others have been traumatized since childhood, went to doctors and told them that the problem is incurable for modern medicine (modern for them means what they learned from textbooks at the Medical Institute). They just have to get used to living with this problem. And they do. They are used to it and live with it.
In others, it may not be exactly trauma, such as high blood pressure. Because it is easiest for his doctor to prescribe a medicine to take him off, explaining to the patient that he is already in the “adult” box. Without being “old”, he takes the part for the rest of his life and considers it something completely normal.
Some of them don’t even go to the doctor to find out what happened. They ask the forums and the biggest “experts” give them “proper” advice that they can do on their own at home. With these technologies, why waste time in classrooms and clubs.
Oddly enough, one rarely tries to find a good trainer (nutrition or sports) who is competent to prepare him with nutrition and exercise regimen, show him how to ignore a bruised body or a method to restore her painlessly and sparingly. If at all this trauma exists. Because it can be purely mental.
Naturally, no trainer will close his eyes to the pain and limitation of mobility, but will do everything in his power if he sees desire and motivation in the person! No one should throw sneakers in the basement and accept that this is normal for the age. No, it’s not normal! It is “normal” for everyone to be healthy and happy!
There is no way that there is no sparing exercise that is good for recovering and relieving pain after trauma. There is no way that there will be no proper diet to get you out of your mind and body.
There is no one who is so “broken” that he can do nothing. Unless it’s broken … mentally.
Even people with irreversible disabilities can not only train for health but also attain a physical condition sufficient to compete and achieve incredible results.
There are many examples. If you participate in sports internet forums, participate precisely for motivation purposes. For advice, no one can guarantee you how correct they are unless you know the trainer personally and are not sure that he or she is a specialist in the area of interest. In forums, the tips are “autobiographical” – people are sure that if it worked for them, it would work for everyone. And this is not always the case and may even have a radically opposite effect.
People who earn a living from hard physical labor.
There are still some. They exercise irregularly or refuse to train at all because they believe that their physical activity at work is sufficient. And that they don’t need fitness or any sport. This is a big mistake.
As a rule, in any heavy physical labor, the set of movements is not large: the same muscles are loaded and the limbs move within a limited range.
As a result, the worker gets a pronounced muscle imbalance of some muscles at the expense of others, stiffness and pain, back and joint problems. Feeding them is often under any criticism.
Strength training involves many different exercises that build harmoniously all muscle groups, increase endurance, flexibility and coordination. When properly prepared.
In addition, in heavy physical labor, the load is usually a constant. The muscles get used to it and stop growing. In the gym, the load is constantly increasing, the body becomes stronger, more embossed and enduring. During sports, people get used to the right diet, which allows them to protect their muscles, and I have not seen an employer until now to take care of it, whether it is only with advice.
With a good workout regimen coupled with proper nutrition, the worker learns during sports a technique that he or she will be able to apply while working out, performing movements much more efficiently and reducing the risk of injuries and accidents.
A person who has mastered proper weight lifting will never lift a heavy object incorrectly, risking getting hernias.
For health, it doesn’t matter if you do heavy physical work or are in front of the computer all day, whether you are a man or a woman. If you want a harmoniously developed, beautiful and healthy body, in all cases you need proper nutrition, strength and cardio training.
These people start training many times. And it’s tight. And they also follow the diet. They start and give up. And so many times. They constantly feel frustrated by diet and restrictions. They are desperate to be “victims” all their lives and their suffering will last forever.
They usually lack motivation. Goal missing. Their expectation is that everything should happen quickly and painlessly. They believe in the “magic pill”.
Reality is different from our fantasies. Our body adapts, but for each one differently – at some quickly, at others very slowly.
If these people set a goal and are motivated, they can also cross the threshold of “victimization”. Being alone is more difficult. It is easier to prove with a coach.
One gets used to almost everything. Even more so with physical activity and healthy food. The decision and the first steps are the most difficult. The more persistent and disciplined a person is, the faster the adaptation. The stronger the motivation, the stronger the desire to quit can overcome.
In fact, all these people with great figure and health never suffer from eating and exercising. No! They love to do it.
Don’t think athletes are having a hell of a problem refusing sweets. No! They just don’t care about sweets. It is neither genetically conditioned nor the result of iron will. This is a common habit, and definitely anyone can develop one. He just has to ask for it and cross the threshold, after which he will no longer suffer.
6. Pedants and Theorists
These people love the theory and are happy to delve into the details but miss the really important thing – practice and perseverance.
They are scared of microwave ovens, looking for the GMO-free sign, the BIO, and any such useful label pictures. They read and explain to everyone about the pH of the water and exactly what water to drink. They know how soda bicarbonate, bee pollen and all other “grandmother”, NASH or foreign magic substances work. But for some inexplicable reason, they are not interested in their abdominal obesity, weak muscles, and whether they eat well and regularly. They do not understand that because of themselves they stand fat and unhappy.
They cannot imagine that even with the most organic products, they can also ruin health.
They will tell their coach all their diagnoses, starting from childhood, endlessly discussing the benefits or harms of exercise or other products. They will make an analysis of the analysis made by the coach of their eating and sports habits. Some will even try to explain to him how much he misses one-on-one because they have read about it on the Internet.
Naturally, they will not achieve any results, because they will not make any efforts.
This is difficult. Discussion and “philosophizing” are much easier and more enjoyable. Unfortunately, these “philosophers” find it difficult to self-identify as such and their ego is in the clouds.
Details are important, but as a rule, the time for them comes much later. And the biggest goal is reached in small steps. To make all steps achievable and enjoyable. They can even be fun.
The ultimate goal must be a real change in lifestyle for the better, more correct and environmentally friendly. Suddenly this cannot happen. Quick results are also contraindicated. Most diets and some sports regimens produce quick results, but the “pill” turns out to be great and people give up – they can’t live that way for the rest of their lives.
Usually simple rules are followed to start with: regular workouts, balanced food, gradual withdrawal of harmful foods and drinks, good and proper hydration.
7. Masters of Apologies
You can’t argue with these people. They have the answer to everything.
They often say that they really want to train, but there is simply no time for that.
In addition, any suggestions and tips are absolutely inappropriate for them – they each have a specific unwavering excuse.
We have met people who are outright world champions by apology.
They have no strength to train in the evening after work, they have no time in the morning, they have no opportunity during the weekends, they have too many duties at home, just then they have to bring the dog out, hang over their student’s head, it is too expensive in the gym, too stuffy at home and so to infinity.
They usually think their excuses are unique. Yes, they are unique to them, but we hear them every day several times by a variety of people and smile half-heartedly “with understanding.”
Well, there are also some unique ones, for example: “I was already on my way, but the gearbox fell on the Eagle Bridge” (in fact, I suppose it is possible, the man was driving Moskvich, not the latest one).
Such people are not looking for solutions. They are looking for excuses. Most of all to themselves – others usually see the truth, even if they are educated enough to remain silent.
We need not depend on the circumstances. Desires can and should be stronger than any excuse.
Rearrange priorities. One way or another one can always find a solution. It is proven in practice!
The problem again is purely mental. Just admit to yourself that you can. An hour of workouts over the weekend will not ruin your family, even if your family doesn’t get pancakes for breakfast. Especially if you don’t think you have the strength to train after work. Don’t delay, do it now!
I promise – you will not die and you will even sleep better, you will have a better rest, even your waist will hurt less than without exercise.
They are “above things”.
They are convinced that the rules are not for them. Maybe someone needs eight hours of sleep to recover, but they feel fine after four. Probably someone should eat well and increase the protein level, but for them two pizzas are enough to accumulate strength for training.
To give up alcohol? Well, no … Do they warm up before training? Yes … Work on joint mobility? Ha! Let the girls in the yoga class do this.
They hardly share this, but they think so.
Soon the questions begin: “Why has my progress stopped?”, “Why do my muscles not grow even though I break from training?”, “Why am I injured again?”
And they even answer. They don’t ask. They know and can do everything: “Probably things are genetic for me”, “I will have to change coaches”, “This diet is not suitable for me” …
Yes, our bodies are different, but not so much.
If they adhere to the training regime and it is especially for them and prepared for the purpose not every one of them, if they eat properly, balanced and properly, if they hydrate their body enough, if they sleep well and as needed – they cannot get results.
One can withstand heavy workloads, but if this is not done right, sooner or later his enthusiasm will “break down” and all results will be lost.
Let’s take good care of our body – that’s all we really have.
If you want to be healthy and happy – look for us!
