I hope you had a great Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend! Hessle foreshore was packed!
It made for an interesting bootcamp as it was nearly impossible to get parked down livingstone road -MADNESS! Like on TV :)
It’s the actually anniversary TODAY, - but Saturday was the day of the week it all started, and just feels right!
Start Small and Be Patient
I just wanted to write a little about how things take time, patience and hard work.
When you embark on losing some fat, changing the your body shape, getting stronger or fitter……………..it’s not easy!
I often say that the first bootcamp session is the hardest one – mainly because it’s a big shock to your system…………but also because it’s a huge step psychologically.
Your body just want to say “NO!”
Back in June 2009, when I started Bootcamp , There were many times I had 3, 2 – even just 1 person training! Business-wise, this seemed like it would fail….but I loved it, I believed in it – and knew I would make it work. When you get a group of people hungry to drag things around a snowy field – you know they’ve made leaps to become mentally and physically strong people
Check out the scenery when Bootcampers came down in January……
Putting it in Perspective
If you need to lose fat (90% of most people’s goals), food is key, and exercise will help.
Here’s a simple, yet effective way of making progress in most things.
1. Measure what you want to change
2. Create a plan
3. Re-measure and assess if said plan worked.
4. Tweak plan and start over!
It sounds simple, but it is so effective. There is also something I might mention that is very important. If you DO NOT STICK TO YOUR PLAN - you cannot say it didn’t work!
Many people say ” I tried __X__ and it just didnt work…..when really, they did a bit of __X__ but 90% of the time did what they were already doing (old habits) and end up where they are today. That’s how many people end up saying “‘nothing works for me – I give up”
Dont give up! Its often worth the wait! (See below!)
Have a great week,
