Personal trainer tips: Staying fit when you don't have time
Over my years working in fitness and nutrition I’ve worked with A LOT of clients. I’ve had to really navigate what holds them back. I’ve talked to hundreds of people about their struggles with weight. I know about the fear of failing again, the fear of starting over, and the fear of falling off the wagon. I know about the cravings and lack of knowledge of how/what to eat to get a lean body that’s actually sustainable. I’ve watched them spend endless hours on treadmills, working with trainers, and exercising with little to no return on their time and energy investment. And I’ve seen them give up time and time again. After coaching hundreds of clients and learning about their biggest areas of struggle, several things stand out as major issues that cause setbacks or failures, but what the overlying issue boils down to is TIME. They just don’t have time. I’ve been able to help these same people who once felt endlessly trapped in a vicious cycle by time transform their bodies using methods they can rely on forever. Here’s what to do: 1. Learn how simple nutrition really is. You don’t need to spend hours prepping healthy food. You don’t have to eliminate carbs or eat chicken and lettuce and that’s it. Foods that promote fat loss taste AMAZING and take very little time to prepare. You can also go out to eat frequently and lose weight. It’s just a matter of knowing what to order! 2. Exercise for maximum efficiency. You need the most bang for your buck because of the time crunch. You need to exercise your entire body with short weight training workouts. The easiest way to do this is with ‘metabolic conditioning’ like we do at Empowered Fitness. 3. Mindset. Everything starts with believing that your goals are possible to achieve and making up your mind that you’re doing this thing NO MATTER WHAT. That you’ll strive to be better by just 1% every day. Accept that there will be setbacks, but there is no giving up. 4. Stop trying to be perfect. I would go CRAZY if I had to be perfect all the time with my fitness and nutrition. Even as a pro, I love junk food sometimes and have created parameters that are easy to follow and mean I don’t have to be perfect. If all this sounds great to you, you may still be wondering where in the world to start. Don’t worry! I’ve got you covered!
