Having a coach is pretty important when it comes to your health and fitness. Even as a coach and a business owner, I have a coach for both business and training. Coaches are great because they know more than you, plain and simple. It is their job to learn as much as they can about what they are coaching you in.
I coach adults in fat loss and strength development, as well as youth athletes for best performance on the field of play. When I am not training people or running my business, I have a stack of exercise science books I am diving into all the time.
One big problem I see with prospective clients is that they think they can do it all on their own, thus they decide not to join my program. They think they know their body or what their body needs. I understand this thought process; I don’t live in your body, I don’t know exactly how everything feels to you. What I do know is what the science says about how humans respond to training and the difference between good and bad technique. This helps me keep you safe and keep you getting the results you want.
Just because you have been living in this body for 30 years or more, doesn’t mean you know how to get the results you want out of it and make it the ideal body you want. Similarly, just because you have a car doesn’t mean you automatically know how to change the oil, the brakes, or replace a transmission; that’s why you take that car to a mechanic.
My big question is, why not take your body to a body mechanic? Someone that understands the ins and outs of how the body works, how to keep your body injury free, how to adjust your program, and get you the best results in the shortest time. Or you could keep trying to be a mechanic that has never really worked on a car.
