Hey crew, currently i am away learning how to toss myself out of a perfectly good plane in order to finish something i started 5 years ago. I had always had an aspiration to get some wings (become an Army Paratrooper) but other things came up during my Army career like partying, two Army Diver courses, two physical training instructor courses, promotion courses and adventure coaching courses.
Anyway as a 34 year old and the oldest on any of my courses, i attended and passed the Royal Engineer Para conditioning course, the Pre Para course and then P company as champion Para. Pretty much a year out of my life training and getting physically tested at my limit, but to finish of the process and be allowed to wear a set of revered wings on your Arm you need to pass a Basic Parachute Course BPC (arguably the easiest and less painfull of the processes).
It never hapened for me as each time i turned up at Brize Norton on the course, for different reasons i was sent back. I then left the Army and this is when i became a Personal Trainer, however i never gave up on the aspiration and joined the Reserve Airborne Engineers in the hope of getting on another jumps course (BPC).
Now this is all about perservering and never giving up in order to get what you want, need or deserve. It is exactly the same with YOUR fitness or weight loss battle, no one is just going to give you that flat tummy or beach body YOU really must just take it.
By this i mean doing anything and everything in your power to get the exact physique you NEED.
IF THIS MEANS GETTING UP AN HOUR EARLIER - DO IT
HAVING LESS MONEY FOR ALCOHOL AND JUNK DUE TO PAYING YOUR PT OR GYM MEMBERSHIP - DO IT
HAVING TO BEG FAMILY TO BABYSIT SO YOU CAN TRAIN - DO IT
GOING TO THE HORRIBE GASTLY GYM - DO IT
GOING THROUGH A PROCESS THAT REALLY HURTS - DO IT
EATING FOOD YOU DONT REALLY LIKE - DO IT
DITCHING FRIENDS THAT BRING YOU DOWN - DO IT
" HAVE YOU GOT THE MESSAGE - DOOOOOO ITTTTTTT"
Actually all those horrible things like the food, painful exercise, boring gym, early morning exercise can all become a habit that you really love. I prove this to each and every client i train (they hate exercise) until i train with them and then they become adicted and loooove it.
Lets just say POTENTIALLY soon i could be finally finishing the journey i started 5 whole years ago.
