“I’m struggling”

It was our monthly Coaching Day the other week.

As part of that, all members get their InBody analysis (only one in the region) and an interpretation of it and consultation with one of the coaches.

To see how people are getting on and work out, together, a plan going forward for them (not ‘telling them what to do’ like most FitPros do).

Some results are great and it’s very much a case of “keep doing what you’re doing”.

Sometimes people aren’t getting where they’d like to and it’s a case of figuring out some suitable course corrections.

———— We don’t do the thing that most FitPros do where they pretend everyone is getting great results all the time, despite not having any success stories to show ————

One particularly phrase that I heard a few times this Coaching Day was “I’m struggling”.

As in they were finding it hard going.

As I explained though……….

“Struggling is good”.

It shows we’re pushing ourselves outside of our comfort zone.

Trying stuff we don’t find all that easy.

But, in each of those cases, there was forward progress.

Not as much as they might have ideally liked, sure.

But they were struggling forward rather than sliding backwards as most do month on month, year on year (check www.theacademygtc.co.uk/briefing-meeting if that’s you and it’s time to put a stop to that).

Don’t find something easy?

That’s fine.

Do as much as of it as you can and be proud of that.

We don’t need to suffer, of course.

But struggling is a good sign.

Anyone that’s not struggling isn’t really trying all that hard and not getting everything they could.

Much love,

Jon ‘Is real’ Hall and Matt ‘Bus’ Nicholson
