Managing expectation vs effort

By February 27, 2022March 10th, 2022No Comments

So what does a good effort toward your health and fitness look like? It will look something along the lines of this, making conscious efforts to be mindful with food choices, ensuring the correct amount of sleep to optimize energy levels, taking the necessary supplements for overall wellness and then to aid fitness goals, and training with real purpose. Now, while we may get a lot more detailed when pursuing a specific goal, these are the absolute bare minimums that any individual must have in order to be healthy. Why is this important when we discuss results within fitness? Because a healthy body will always achieve better results than an unhealthy one, and this should always be the priority for every goal, health first.

So if you’re not prioritizing these fundamentals, it will be very difficult for you to achieve your goal. As I said, this is the bare minimum, these things must be taken care of on a daily basis before we start to worry about our results. Once we can maintain these daily tasks, then we must get down to the specifics. Wat that will be will be based on the individual, but you can presume that it will involve tracking food accurately and consistently, providing your coach with daily weigh-ins and feedback on anything necessary, completing the assigned work to be completed on your own time, and lastly making every training session an 8-9-10/10 every time.

Of course, there will always be exceptions, unexpected events that might occur at home or at work, terrible night’s sleep that have knock-on effects, holidays, etc. But when these things are happening on a constant basis, excuse after excuse, vacation after vacation. You must manage your expectation of the coach and of your results. If canceling sessions is a common thing for you, manage your expectations. If you have two weekends away every month, manage your expectations. If you’re constantly working too much and not sleeping, manage your bloody expectations. These things do happen occasionally in life, and coaches are people too and will always understand that, but if a person has a goal that they say they want, it must be the priority, and other things must make way for it. This means sacrifices, this means possibly giving up something that you enjoy, but they are necessary to reach the goal.

Sometimes, it is impossible to do everything, but in these moments applying effort to the areas that are possible, is what will make the difference. That will make or break clients, will they throw in the towel when things pile up and stress is building? Or will they do what they can to the best of their ability and get back on the horse as soon as possible. The latter of the two clients may take a stumble in the pursuit of their goal, but the former will reach a hurdle and give up. So please take this away from this blog, put in the most that you can, and your results will speak for themselves.
