People of Solihull, Birmingham and beyond!…
How often have you achieved something…
To only then be unsure if its actually good?
Results you get through your training are a prime example:
Is that fitness improvement good?
Is that loss in body fat good?
Is that how much stronger I should be?
Your opinion on this is based on perception and unfortunately this is controlled heavily by THE MEDIA
Magazines, web articles and adverts all claim you should be seeing AMAZING results
‘Lose 2 stone in 2 weeks’
‘Increase your minute mile pace by 2 minutes’
‘Look like this person by taking this pill’
And you listen…and I don’t blame you, because its coming at you from all angles
But because you believe it, when you don’t see these results…
You get disappointed…
Your motivation wavers
YET, what your basing your success on is nothing but LIES, seriously
I can openly and honestly hold my hands up and say from all of the leading experience us coaches have at CP, all the remarkable minds we have worked with across the globe, that these claims are not possible…
For example, the world’s LEADING muscle physiologist concludes gains in muscle mass like many supplement companies make are false
The international societies of nutrition clearly state body fat losses greater than approx 1kg a week, are not healthy, yet the media celebrates these mamouth body weight losses
(which often are mainly losses in water from reducing carb intake, losses in muscle mass from the severe calorie restriction and only somewhat actually fat loss)
The point im trying to help you with is this…
The benchmarks you can compare yourself to are often nothing more than hype
No more factual than Willy Wonka or the Loch Ness Monster
Your expectations need to be based against FACT, not fiction
Otherwise a great result can be portrayed as a bad one, and when you should be motivated, you end up the gutted, down and out
Consequently we have to consider this as coaches with those we coach at CP
And hey, if you want to lose 2 stone in 2 weeks, or become Mo Farah in a month
We’re not that good! But truth be told no one is!
