What Sandra Said About Me On Facebook

So I got this message from Sandra last week:

 
“I signed up with Matt because I knew I needed to lose weight and get fit.  I am 51 and have arthritis  in both knees so exercise was a no no… or so I thought.  
 
I also work long unpredictable hours so thought I could not plan proper meals and hence was always snacking. 
Matt is totally dedicated and knowledgeable.  He has shown me that I can exercise but don’t need to go to a gym to do this.  
He is extremely motivational, almost to the point of nagging,  but this is what I needed to remind me that every little thing is helping my bigger goal.  
I would 100% recommend Matt if you want a fresh approach to the whole healthier, fitter and generally happier way to be healthy.  Thank you Matt for the help you have given me”


Well done, Sandra!

But why am i sharing this?

4 reasons:

✅ To squash the myth that you have to be dripping with sweat and crawling out of a gym to get fit and lose weight <<< this is actually the fastest way to fail. It might seem ‘normal’ given what you have heard in the past to be dripping with sweat and aching…but it isn’t necessary

✅ To show you the power of fitting this healthy eating and exercise stuff around your lifestyle (even if you work long, unpredictable hours or are short on time <<this is why we have short ladies only sessions and click and play home workouts you can do at home in just 6 minutes)

✅ To show you that everything can be adapted for you, even I you have arthritis or a hip or knee issue..

✅ That having someone nagging you, almost like a polite kick up the bum can help you do the things you probably know to you need to do to get the results you want, be it fitting back into favourite clothes, getting fit, or reducing your risk of health conditions like diabetes 

Unfortunately, most ladies come to me with the ‘experience’ of exercise is something that is boring
or intimidating.

Classes can be monotonous and you can easily get lost amongst a large group where no one even knows your name and checks up on you if you don’t turn up or go through a hard time.

And we’ve all felt the eye balls staring at the back of our heads when walking into
a brand new gym…not really knowing where anything is.

To summarise then.

What I believe to be the key ingredients to success to any transformation:

 Commit to 3 exercise sessions per week (these can be as short as 5 minutes…1>0)

 Commit to making positive changes to nutrition without giving up the things you love.

 Do something that is FUN.

 Do something where you feel comfortable.

 Don’t try and figure this stuff out yourself – choose something where you are supported / encouraged and can get questions answered.

 Set a goal but focus more on the daily habits that will help you achieve that goal (this is what we do with the areas of Food, Fitness and Focus)
 
You DO NOT have to be special.
 
There is nothing heroic about the above.

Anyone can do it – if they want to.
