I began my career in fitness when I was 21 & I’ve learnt a lot in my 21 years of doing this…
I look back at some of the things I used to believe & some of the advice I used to give out and its embarrassing!
Training wise I wasted a LOTS of time & energy doing what I thought I was ‘supposed’ to be doing.
I wasted even more money on pointless supplements. I used to literally panic when my tub of protein ran out…
I wasted too much time looking up to & following people who where (in hindsight) full of shit. They where just good salesmen.
I dealt with my underlying insecurities by acting cocky. Inside I was scared to admit I was wrong or that I didn’t know the answer to something.
I didn’t understand worry, stress, fear or pain. I didn’t know what a sleepless night was, and I certainly didn’t understand loss…
I could go on….
I’ve grown a lot, I’ve learnt a lot, and I’ve experienced a lot, all of which has led me to where I’m at right now.
My experiences (good & bad) help shape how I help people today.
We can’t turn back the clock, or change yesterday but we can help shape our future by the actions we take today.
If you need help, give me a shout.
Have good day, have a good workout, have a good week.
