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,
