Before I explain what makes our facility and our training different, consider the following:
- Do you lack consistency in your exercise and eating habits?
- Have you tried exercising before, only to be let down with the lack of results, despite all of your hard work?
- Do your joints feel like they’ve been hit by a jackhammer following a workout or a long day at work?
- Do you know how to change your eating habits based on your goal?
- Do you feel like there is something holding you back from accomplishing your health and fitness goals, but you can’t quite get past it?
The truth is that you are not alone; the majority of our clients had these exact same issues when they started. In fact, we’ve been down the same path, which usually goes something like this…
You see an old friend who somehow continues to look great year after year, and this lights a fire under your butt to to finally start exercising and leading a healthier lifestyle. You join the first gym you find and stock your kitchen with healthy foods, thinking “I can do this by myself!”. Excitement level: through the roof! Yeah!
You’re training hard and within a few days you‘re feeling pretty beat up, but you’re proud to say that you’ve lost a few pounds. Excitement level: very high!
You convince yourself that if you work twice as hard you will get twice the results; so instead of spending one hour in the gym, you’re now spending two. By the end of week two, you’re completely exhausted and your joints are starting to feel a little beat up. Excitement level – feeling okay… but my knees are killing me… and all this “healthy eating” is starting to wear on me. This is usually when the first little trickle of self-doubt pops into your head. You tell yourself, “Maybe I am just not cut out for this…”, and as such, this is the beginning of the end.
Through shear willpower you are able to make it through one more week and a few more pounds have fallen off, but you are absolutely exhausted and the initial excitement is long gone. Your diet is boring you to tears, your body is tired and you are emotionally exhausted. You didn’t have time to go grocery shopping this week because life gets in the way, and in a moment of weakness you skip the gym and take a detour to Mickey D’s.
You now hate yourself. Your joints are killing you. You have no energy. And you think you’ve just ruined all of your progress. On top of all of this, you might decide that this whole “exercise and healthy living” might not be worth it.
Does this story sound familiar? Of course it does. We’ve been down this path many times and have discovered what is keeping our clients from getting the results they want. Here at FAST, we teach a very simple formula as part of our Foundations Program that helps our clients conceptualize why they’ve failed in the past, and also how to succeed moving forward. Ready to learn this simple equation?
Intelligent Training + Long Term Mindset + Hard Work – Self Limiting Beliefs / Your Ability To Recover = Results
Pretty simple, isn’t it? Everyone hits road blocks on their journey. If any part of this equation is lacking, the whole process can be thrown way off course. And that’s where our expert coaching (do you want your knees when you’re 50?) and accountability (do you want to make exercise a life long habit?) will keep you on track.
