RYPT Mindset Corner: Freedom
How to succeed in your fitness goals
Long term success is achievable
As a new addition to the RYPT online blogging, I have decided that I will be looking at one idea of psychology each week and reviewing how it can help with your fitness.
This week: Freedom
The concept of freedom has huge implications when it comes to fitness. If you think that it doesn’t then try following a regimented fitness plan!
That’s my main gripe with the fitness industry: it’s all about telling you and not listening to you. That’s where RYPT is different.
Being told what to do is needed for guidance (to a certain degree) but me telling you to train six days a week following a plan to the letter will soon fail. I can guarantee that.
At RYPT I consult with you to dismiss what you hate doing, focus on what you love and include full demonstrations of things that I think you’ll enjoy.
This also applies to nutrition; the stricter the plan is, the more you are likely to deviate when you have a hiccup. It is basically physiology but it’s often neglected.
I often find that the clients who get the best results are those who are interactive with their plans. Most commonly I get asked to simple present a plan to a new client. However, through my studying on mindset, it is evident that consultation is the only way to make it work permanently.
On the other hand, the mind is the most important and simultaneously most overlooked aspect of fitness. You cannot merely command your body to start exercise and get results. If you don’t have your mind on board then you are fighting a losing battle.
Much in the way that last weeks blog was about making sensible targets; having a balanced and structured plan will compliment this.
It is great to have some degree of professional guidance but we also know how likely or unlikely a plan is to succeed before we even begin. These workout DVD’s seem to be the most common exhibition of this. It sounds like a wonderful idea, stick on a DVD and follow what they do and, as interactive as they may seem, there is no substitute for a personalised plan. If you hate burpees then guess what? A DVD workout doesn’t know this or even that you have a dodgy right knee. This commonly leads to injuries or people quitting because it’s too tough.
Freedom is a key element to fitness and even as structured as my gym plan is, exercises are moved, sets are adapted and so on. I couldn’t live with a concrete gym plan and it should be no different for you. Challenging your body and keeping it guessing is the quickest (and really the only way) to get your body to change.
