Your Biggest Struggles | Lifestyle Coaching/Training Around Northanmptonshire

"I Dont Have Enough Time"

When asking someone relatively new to the whole fitness/nutrition biz, what their main struggles are. The outcome answer is usually around the same.

Time

Motivation

Sugar Cravings

Do you relate to any of those? Well if you do, hold tight because Jamie is here to discuss each topic in detail starting with ‘TIME’!

Most people struggling with time find it difficult to cook meals, schedule their day or fitness regime. What if told you everyone has 24 hours in day? In fact let me rephrase that…

…Would you favour your job over your health at any given day?

Is the answer no?

Cool! You know what your priorities are, and you know that being healthier WILL make your job a TONNE easier in the long term.

Is the answer yes? Okay, now ask yourself this,

“how bad does my health and fitness have to deteriorate before I choose to delegate time to do something about it?”, and some people will still reply “but I still don’t have the time”.

But who says you have to spend hours in the gym and who says cooking a meal takes hours.

Its easy to look into your head and see a completely rammed schedule but the biggest tip to finding that little bit of time in your day to better yourself would be this: sit down for 5 minutes and assess where I have even half hours availability in my busy schedule.

It could mean you swapping out half an hours of EastEnders for a Micro-workout that could take you even half the time! Make a Smoothie! Have a stretch? There’s loads of things you can do in half an hour. EastEnders is there for a long time and can be rewatched over and over and wont go away. Can your current health status do the same thing? No, it can only go downhill if you chose for it to.

If you still don’t have the time and need some tips, feel free so message us on our facebook pages so we can support you in finding ways to save some time at https://www.facebook.com/LPTNorthamptonNCC/

How To Crush 2018 | Northants Lifestyle Performance Coaching

And NOT Be Part Of The Running Joke

Yesterday I read an interesting article on New Year resolutions which stated that by the 2nd week of February 80% of people have already failed their new years resolutions.

I’m sure that ^ number will come as no surprise to you, coz lets face it New Year resolutions have become a
running joke for years now.

But have you ever questioned why?

See I think the “why” is super important!

After all, if we can learn from the mistakes of 80% of the population then there is likely a LOT we can
learn right!?

So I’ll give it a bash…

For me the no.1 biggest mistake is the huge emphasis on the end outcome of a goal,

…rather than the experience of actually getting there.

I’m convinced, our culture of  “NOW & FAST” has a lot to do with it.

Don’t get me wrong, when it comes to instant private messaging on facebook, live streaming on Netflix or doorstep delivery of your Tesco shopping, then GREAT! I’m all for it.

But when we start craving this same INSTANT gratification in our own lives I see LOTS of problems.

John Lennon put it best when he said, “Life’s what happens when your busy making other plans”.

If he was around today he may change that line to, “Life’s what happens when your busy scrolling your Facebook feed!”

Either way Lennons point is this…Success is in the NOW!

It’s in the journey as much as the outcome.

And I believe that the 20% of people who stick with their NY resolutions are the ones who have gone a step further than just creating another outcome goal.

[Create Your Vision]

They have done what we teach on our mindset program the SELF-upgrade Model

… created a goal that fits into a far bigger, brighter VISION.

Most people do the opposite. They set goals that have no way of fitting around their current life.

Then 2 weeks later after starting the new diet/exercise plan they wonder why it’s so hard to stick too.

Instead you must START with a VISION.

If you haven’t tried this then I suggest you put it down as a priority if you wish to CRUSH 2018.

Not sure where to start?

I’m going to be sharing a really cool training soon on how to create YOUR vision.

You won’t believe how simple it is.(And effective)

Have You Given Up Already? | Personal Training Northants

Try, Try And Try Again

QUICK STORY-Thomas Edison. You know him right? The light bulb guy? No?

Well, teachers often said that Edison was too stupid to learn anything. In fact, he was fired from his first two jobs because his bosses felt he was unproductive. Throughout his life, his peers believed that he would never amount to much. When he first tried to invent the light bulb, he actually failed 1,000 times. However, he didn’t count them as failures. Through motivation and dedication, he was able to invent the light bulb with 1,000 steps.

Should giving up be your last try? Why can’t ‘giving up’ bean indicator of what you need to avoid next time you try?

In life when trying to accomplish or achieve something, people can often take too big a step too soonThe key to growth and progress is to do a bit more each new day than you did the previous day and make small improvements as you move along. 

You don’t have to do it all at once!! This is a common misconception, you need to take one bite at a time. To keep you focused on your journey towards success you need to have a captivating and exciting reason ‘WHY’ to keep moving forward every day. This excitement should ignite your spark plugs and provide the power to chug along like a steam train.

A baby learns to walk by taking one step at a time, they stand up walk and fall down, then they rise up again walk fall down and they keep repeating the process over and over with great determination and eventually the baby walks on their own and they can throw up their little arms in ecstasy in celebration of the milestone they have accomplished. Watching this process is truly inspirational.

One positive aspect of starting small is you discover what works and what doesn’t. Perhaps you had assumptions that looked good in theory but when you applied them they did not work out as you had thought. This affords you an opportunity to evolve and discover new ways of achieving your objectives.

The main things to remember in starting small and taking baby steps are:

  • Take small regular steps
  • Don’t try to grow too quickly
  • Make incremental changes and improvements over time
  • Don’t try to do too much at once
  • Don’t try to jump in one big leap
  • Work on one piece at a time improving and evolving as you go, and
  • Don’t be afraid to start small.

Have you given up already????

Should You Quit Working Out?| Kettering And Northants Best Lifestyle Coaching And Personal Training

Are You Investing In Your Future

As I learn & study more about all things health/fitness as well as business/marketing, the more I see mass cross-overs and similarities in terms of successful principles from both.

[The Pivotal Question…]

A popular question business coaches often ask is, how much are you working IN your business & how much time are you working ON your business.

They use this question because it determines how much time they are spending  on GROWTH.

If you are a business owner reading this then you will likely of read the E-Myth…

…(a whole book written on the subject of this-great read).

For example, for me personally working IN the business is delivering training and coaching sessions with clients (something I still love to do). 

Working ON the business is doing exactly what I am right now…

…sharing my insights to a larger audience, maintaining/building relationships that go beyond the gym and working on new innovative ideas to help people look, move & feel better in their life.

The ironic thing is, if all I ever did was focus on the in-house training sessions with clients rather than writing emails/blogs, newsletters or running workshops then the business would actually suffer in the long-run.

Relevance to you…?

The thing I’ve observed lately is people making this same mistake with their own health & well-being.

They start a fitness plan/diet and do really well.

They get fitter & maybe lose some weight or even hit target weight and going back to the business analogythey start making some moolah! 

Things are GOOD.

But then they hit a road block.

They have been consistently working OUT but have done little working IN.

Exercise & diet gets boring.

They don’t take any time to work ON themselves by setting new goals/ challenges and just like the solo-preneur business owner that settles for “just enough clients to get by”, the person seeking health & fitness
settle’s for “just-enough-to-fit-in-with-the- norm”, whether that norm is a size 10 for the ladies or a 32 inch waist for the guys.

The problem with this limited thinking is its un-inspiring as hell.

And so the only way they can get inspired again is to repeat the process of gaining weight only to try and lose it again!

The Solution?

And no, the solution is NOT to give up working OUT

BUTTTT…

…give yourself a little time each week/month to work-IN.

Think bigger than aesthetics.

Include your career, life, hobbies, hopes and dreams.

Think Purpose. Impact. Growth.

These ^^ are ingredients for a ever-expanding and inspiring future.

“A person who is in charge of their own life’s job, is to look into the future and see their life, not as it is, but as it should be.”

Summary; Don’t quit working OUT but don’t forget to dedicate some time to work IN as well.

What Are Your Instruments? | Personal Training And Lifestyle Coaching Northants

Hey Guys! Guess what? I randomly stumbled across some interesting facts about aircraft travel. Seems totally irrelevant to fitness I know, but just hear me out on this one!

Did you know an aircraft is “off course” about 95% of the time it is in flight!

Scary right…

Well it is, until you understand why a pilot has the mass array of instruments at their disposal to help get them back on the flight path in order to land at their destination safely.

Reading this struck me immediately with what we do at LPT.

One key difference I notice with people who manage to be consistent with their health, fitness & lifestyle performance is they ALSO have an array of their own personal instruments they regularly use when they start to wain “off-track” from their goals to get them re-aligned with their destination.

These can take the form of all sorts of things from

…Having a coach

…Batch cooking

…Intermittent fasting

…Accountability buddy

…Using a Fitbit/tracker

…Journaling weekly/monthly progress

…Using apps like LPT’s Fitclients to regularly load up your statistics

…Having progress reviews with yourself where you simply lay out the truth of where you are right now, what are the obstacles & what resources can you use to overcome those obstacles.

The list really is ENDLESS.

The point is having your own instruments can be the crucial thing between you reaching your goals and NOT.

So do you?

I’d love to know what works for you.
