If you are looking for a coach, 1st you better choose the right one who will get you to where you want to be the healthiest way possible, and 2nd you have to be willing to put in the work.
That being said many people hire coaches because they think if they have one, that all their problems will go away and all their goals will be accomplished. No, it doesn't work that way at all. Whatever you want in life, YOU have to work for it, no one else will be able to do it for you. A coach can give you all the knowledge, motivation, and guidance that they have BUT if you aren't putting it to action, then you will not get to where you want to be at the end of your program.
When this happens, who is to blame? The coach. Well we as coaches can only do as much as you allow us to do and if you don't work your butt off on what we guide you to do then you are shorting yourself. It's not the coaches fault for you not doing your part, be truthful to yourself and don't put blame on someone else unless the coach was absolute crap. We as coaches will be there to keep you going, aid you in the best possible way so you don't have to be miserable every step of the way accomplishing your goals.
I personally as a coach, don't like to trick people into buying my programs because I want a client who has the desire and want to change, they are willing to put in the work to achieve their goals. Not to join my program because I think they need to, to become healthier and to look better. What I truly want is clients who I can help educate and guide through a life changing process that will forever change their lives. If you give me all of you, I will give you all that I have so you will never have to pay for my services again, not because I don't want you too or don't want to help you anymore but I value the education I give that will give you what you need to do things on your own. Once you are a client with me, I will always be there to help you out after you are done with programs, any questions, I'm all for it.
Becoming fit, healthier and more active shouldn't cost a arm and a leg to achieve. Many trainers and coaches out there charge an insane amount, and some don't even look out for your best interest. I really think that is sad, when people value money or someones health. I will never, if anything I will help you out in any way I can without a dime. But we do live in a world where we do need to make a living BUT will be that coach or trainer who rips you off. Karma my friends, it will come back. The more positive and good things/energy you throw out there the more you will get it back. When if comes to finding a good or bad coach, read my previous blog and always never hesistate to ask me via email, text or call!
Last note : never bad talk or blame a coach for the work you didn't do.
Stay balanced friends - the best way of life !
