Personal trainer tips: rules were made to be broken
If you’ve been at the fitness game for a while, you may have jumped on and off the wagon a time or two.
And through that process, you may have picked up specific beliefs around exercise and nutrition “rules.”
Some examples would be…
“Don’t eat after 7pm”
“Lifting weights makes you bulky, so focus on yoga and cardio”
“Keep your calorie count to 1200 of less each day”
And frankly, rules are made to be broken.
Those rules that we so often hold onto for dear life are the rules that made us fall off the wagon in the first place. They’re the rules that kept us from getting real, lasting results.
So, look inward for a moment. What hard and fast rules do you believe to be true around fitness or nutrition?
Now, I want you to question them.
How did they work for you in the past?
Were you able to stick with those rules?
How did abiding by those rules make you feel?
If any negative responses came up, it’s time to let go of those rules and try something new.
