Can you name the film?
Film buffs will have that one straight away…
But it’s so true, losers do always whine about their best.
I especially love meeting people out in a social environment and they feel the need to tell me about their medals from school
“At school I was county champion…
But I used to be the best in primary school at the frisbee…
Or, until my injury I could wrestle bears…”
Working in a health club I would hear these kind of excuses all too often from members as they would try and justify themselves for their weight gain despite turning up to exercise every day,
This is ok on day dot when you are explaining your exercise background and obviously showing a bit of bravado,
(my ‘about me’ story has a lot of this built in to empathise with these tails of woe)
But after that, forget about it!
“I’m just getting back into it…” – after 1 session you are back into it, now crack on!
Back as a young pup trainer I even entertained these type of regular justifications in sessions because I felt that in order to do my job ‘professionally’ the client was always right…
Here’s your bout of Tough Love for the day!
Write this one down and remember it…
When it comes to nutrition and exercise,
no matter who it is,
no matter how successful they may be,
the client is always, always, always WRONG!!
I’m afraid it’s true and you know it,
I hear all manor of BS being spouted on a regular basis…
“I was rushed off my feet so I had to grab a pizza…” – bet you watched top gear though!
“I couldn’t make the session today because child no 1 was up during the night ” – funny how they’re never ‘up during the night’ when it comes to hen dos or stag dos or any other all day bender,
and btw going to the toilet doesn’t count as up during the night!
So this is just a gentle warning that if you are thinking of taking one of the last 4 places on the Tough Love Summer Shred then be prepared to be called out!
It’s my job,
You pay me to get you in shape not listen to your could’ve, would’ve and should’ve!
If you’re still whining about your best then it’s time to put your hand up!
If you need some Tough Love then this really is your last chance as we start tomorrow am.
11 places gone and 4 left for Tough Love Summer Shred
4 weeks and I guarantee it’s not like anything you’ve done before,
But tell me,
How did that work for you?
(Go on I’ll let you…)
Paul ‘Bear Wrestling Champion’ Love
P.S 11 new starters means a great opportunity for you to get in with a group of people who are in the exact same position as you, rather than being the newbie – they are all a little nervous and excited at the same time!
