Personal Training - are you really 'on it'?

Written by Mark Coles - Follow on Google+ | Facebook | Twitter

There's a very big difference between saying you're doing it and actually being seriously "on it".

So many people say that they're really focussed, they're really training hard and they're eating well. But they're not really on it. They miss the occasional meal, they miss the occasional training session and they cheat when they're not supposed to. This type of person is usually the one complaining when they're only making small progress steps, if at any at all.

When it comes to really being on it, absolutely everything is 100% bang on. If you have to weigh your food, every single meal is weighed and prepared. In the gym, you record every single rep and you never miss a workout. If you're allowed planned free or cheat meals, you have them only when instructed.

Being bang on is a term we use a lot with our personal training clients, and they very quickly adjust to the way we do things. They know what we mean when we ask them, and they're only cheating themselves if they lie to us. What's the point in investing in your body, if you're not going to be bang on?

Have you ever wondered how people get in amazing shape, in relatively short periods of time? They're always bang on with everything they do. The people who question some of the results they see, are always the people who have never experienced really being on it.

When you're not getting the results you're expecting, just ask yourself if you're really on it, or if you're just cruising?
