Personal Trainers, Excuses and You

So nearly every day people come to my in Frisco and say that they want to hire a "personal trainer." They say that they need someone to help them do it. You know, someone to call the shots, give them guidance and so on. The sad fact of the matter is that most "personal trainers" aren't worth a damn. Yep, I said it. Not worth a damn.

But, that;s not what I am wanting to write about. What I have on my mind is that many times these people who are looking for "personal trainers" are really looking for someone to do it FOR them. What? Baby, there ain't no one that can do it for you. If you had all the money in the world, theres not a soul you could hire to do it. Can you say "Oprah?" :)

Conversely, if you decide that you want to do it, theres not another person walking this planet that could stop you. Not even prison could stop you from getting in shape if you have that in your heart.

So, where are you? Still looking for someone to DO it for you? Go grab a mirror and check that person out. And another thing, don't come in and tell me that you "need" to do this. You "need" to do alot of things that you don't. You need to mow the yard, clean the house, get to bed earlier, blah, blah blah. But, it's the things that you WANT to do that you WILL do.

So, come to me when you are ready. When you are, I and my staff will bend over backwards to help you. And you WILL succeed. There's no magic and it doesn't take forever...all that's just fantasy in your head... it's no Rocky Balboa's just you, some weight machines, some bad ass personal trainers and a plan. That's it baby, and that's all it's got to be.

PS, leave all the excuses behind. I've heard them all. Thousands of times...enough already. If you either don't start or do start then fall off and don't get back on, you deserve all the crap that's coming your, do what the old adage says, be fat and happy....if you can. If you can't, then get your butt back in the gym and let's get this thing going.
