Just watched this movie which, is a true story based on American personal trainers in the 90's who are not happy with their lot in life and decide to kidnap and murder people in order to make themselves wealthy. A bit of a blockbuster with the ROCK and MARK WAHLBERG, it's a crime comedy-although after reading into it, it's horrific and shouldn't be a comedy, however it's more the fitness content than the politics of the situation that got me.
Some of the comments that the personal trainer wahlberg mentioned during the film were: we all start the same, heroes are self made and people squander their gifts. So thinking about these three comments below are my understandings of the comments in respect to health.
we all start the same
We do more than you will ever know:
Roughly only a 5% DNA difference between all of us, so between the superstars of sport and folk that live on their sofas have only a tiny separation. The remainder is all in our head, I understand that some people that dont achieve think this is stat is rubbish, only it's not...between having a six pack and a keg is all in your head redardless of what you think.
heroes are self made
Nelson mandela, Bradley wiggins, Andy murray,every professional athlete and other people who i respect massively for being amazing have one thing in common-they believe and spend every hour they need to, to achieve. I am sporty and hold fitness types in a high esteem, however i understand they are not the be all and end all. But literally there is a mountain of proof stating that if you think you will be an athlete you will be and if you think you can't achieve anything then you cannot. So sort out your head and stop making excuses, am i being tough? not at all i have seen enough people turn around their fortunes to realise it's all in your head.
people squander their gifts
So bearing in mind that you share 95% of your DNA withthe rest of the world including Mandela and wiggins, .........................whats stopping you, which is a great book about self belief by Robert Kelsey. Right i have seen and read a lot of horror stories about people that have been overweight and an insensitive person has ridiculed or publicly ruined them or they have been kicked off a plane or bus because they are too fat. These people have got home and got fit and healthy(athletic) every time. Which proves beyond all doubt Its all in your head so stop making excuses, if there is a issue i promise you that you can sort it. If you need help though drop me a line on 01913874222 or check out my page.
HONESTLY EXCUSES ARE ONLY FOR YOU - NO BODY ELSE BELIEVES THEM
Trust between clients and personal trainers is something like the bond between a priest and his flock
This is a tough - ish blog, but i know people need help and i can do that very well as i have a huge amount of empathy. I may have just said its all in your head-and it is, but the way i live my life is all in my head too and i can promise you it's far from perfect.
So just because we are all the same physically it doesnt mean you dont need help, because you probably do, without the eduacation of fitness and education it most likely wont work for you.
If you need help and want the bond you havent seen in years then my services could be for you, i am an absolute perfectionist and need to change all of my clients....if you are one then it could be you. However, i am selective because i only want to work with people that will work.
