Surprised to hear that from me? Let me tell you a story.
When I was sitting in a cell day in and day out for a crime I didn’t commit, I had two choices, I could give up and give in to my situation, OR I could start dreaming of what my life would be when I got out. I knew I wanted to change everything. I wanted to change who I was and what I stood for and I wanted to help as many people as I could to not end up where I was.
I knew that I had to change in order to do everything I wanted. In a cell without a lot of choices, I knew there was one thing that I could change, I could change my body. I was 60 pounds overweight and didn’t have any muscles you could actually see behind all of my fat. So, I started training. I got creative because I only had my body weight to use as my weight resistance. What resulted after months and years of training is the Gym Star body that you see today. I did change my body and after I did I thought If I can change what I was before to what I am today, I can change anything.
The same rules apply for any change to happen. Here are the steps that I use to make change happen.
1)Visualize. I am always visualizing. I was visualizing my life and what I wanted to create every day I was in that cell working out my body to what it is now. I also visualize the body I want! to continually create. I see where i want to sculpt, where I want to get stronger. I do the same thing now with my clients. I start seeing how I want their bodies to look the first session I have with them.
2)Create a plan. In this case is a workout plan. This is the easy part, right? Figure out the action steps you need to take in order to put the change in motion. Workout plans can be as simple as walking to and from the subway stop one stop away from your house to make sure you are getting an extra 40 minutes of cardio on your schedule. To full blown, 4–5 five days a week to create a sculpted, fit and trim body. This is my favorite part of working with my clients I see their body, I talk to them about their goals and we come up with the individualized plan that is going to get them there.
3)Follow-through. This is the hardest part, committing to the lifetime process of change. Your brain may tell you over and over again that it is simply too much work to actually change. Things like, “ You are too tired.” “I don’t have enough time.” “I have too much work to do.” The list goes on and on… Still, guess what? You are in charge of your brain, and not the other way around. You get to decide what you can or cannot do.
4)Accountability. Yes, there are the very few and lucky people out there who are independently accountable. Still, most of us need a support specialty is my specialty as a trainer. Not only do I help you visualize the change you want, create a plan for you, support your follow through, I make sure you are accountable. I will be there for our workouts together, I will make sure you account for the workouts on your own, and I will be right next to you during our workout, working out with you to help you know you are not alone.
Seriously, if I have the brain power to change my body when all of my physical freedoms were taken away from me to create the body I have now, then ANYONE Can Do it! Let’s Do it TOGETHER!
