The 5 most common problems or fears you may have when taking on a body transformation programme and my solutions to them.
If you come across an online fitness programme, which states that it will get you in the best shape of your life in a few simple steps, with minimal effort, then you can guarantee it’s too good to be true.
Let’s not hide behind the curtain. There’s no doubt about it, embarking on a ‘quality’ body transformation programme is a challenge. And as we all know it wouldn’t be called a challenge if it were an easy ride. But you shouldn’t let that stop you signing up, because if you acknowledge and accept that at times the challenge may be tough but you’re able to dig deep and stick with it to the end then the rewards can be life changing.
So let’s address these potential problems or fears now along with my solutions to them, so hopefully you’ll realise that although working through a programme such as the ART 12 week body transformation programme won’t be a piece of cake, it will most definitely be a challenge worth taking on.
PROBLEMS, FEARS, SOLUTIONS
1) I’m impatient with slow physical results.
If this is you then you aren’t alone. On the ART programme we review clients progress each fortnight and often clients become disheartened when after just 2 short weeks they don’t see the results they were expecting in regards to fat loss or muscle gains.
Wouldn’t it be great if it only took 14 days to get the physique we desired! Unfortunately the body simply doesn’t respond that quickly. If you’ve neglected your body for months or even years it’s unrealistic to see a dramatic shift in just 2 weeks.
You have to be patient with any healthy fat loss / muscle building programme. On the ART programme you need to take your body measurements and photos every fortnight so you ‘will’ be able to see the physical changes that your body is making, which is a fantastic motivator.
“Be patient with your impatience”
2) I won’t be able to resist temptations.
Temptations are all around us, whether we give in to them or not is ultimately up to the individuals commitment. At some point you will undoubtedly be confronted with the urge to regress back into old ways, be it always having biscuits with your tea, snacking on cakes or crisps on the go or spending your evenings with a bottle of beer or glass of wine in front of the TV.
Resisting temptation is never easy but with the ART programme to help you through those testing times I encourage a little bit of flexibility with regards to food choices to try and curb the desire to go crazy. Allowing a little bit of this and a little bit of that in the diet kills cravings and allows for a more maintainable and sustainable approach.
So don’t worry, it doesn’t always have to be all or nothing. Gone are the days of eating nothing but dry chicken and broccoli, which wasn’t sustainable or fun. Trust me, I’ve been there.
Be flexible (within reason) and keep it real.
3) I won’t be able to give 100% so it’s not worth doing.
Wrong! I’ve spoken a lot about consistency with regards to a body transformation and yes, ultimately the more consistent you are the more successful you will be. But to expect 100% consistency for the full 12 weeks is extremely unrealistic.
Social events and business trips etc are undoubtedly going to crop up at some point during a 12-week period. The key here is acceptance. Acknowledge and accept that at times you won’t be able to make it to the gym or control your diet as desired. If you come to terms with this then you are going to deal with the situation a whole lot better. You can still achieve life-changing results with less than 100% commitment.
It’s vital that you “strive for progress not perfection.”
4) My body has plateaued so I’m giving up.
At some point your body changes ‘will’ plateau, this is just the way it is.
I’m afraid progress isn’t always linear as you fight against your body to change. If for example you are doing my ART 12 week programme and you’ve followed it to the letter, then you can rest in the knowledge that you’ve done nothing wrong. Don’t beat yourself up or make any crazy drastic changes, as it’s all part of the process of making a healthy and sustainable change.
If you welcome this eventuality then your chances of success are greatly improved and overtime you will break this plateau.
5) It’s all too complicated.
Due to the information overload society we live in today, most people become overwhelmed and overlook the basics of how to achieve fat loss, the formula of which is actually quite simple; if you burn more calories than you consume on a regular basis you will undoubtedly lose body fat. It’s the simple law of thermodynamics.
Over complicating a fat loss process is always going to be counter productive. On the ART programme we keep it simple and take things back to basics.
Building lean muscle mass can be a little more complex based on the individual, but with my knowledge I’ll be able to help you navigate through the process.
