ADVICE AND GUIDANCE ON HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR FITNESS AND HEALTH.
If you have been struggling with losing weight in the last 6-12 month and nothing has changed then this post is for you

Couple of days ago I have bumped into a client of mine who I have been working with 3 years back.

I met him on my way to the studio at 5:30 in the morning and he was going to his regular hike .

I was sad to see that in those years I haven’t seen him – he didn’t lose any weight ( although he really wanted ) and even worse – he got bigger .

So that got me thinking – to go out so early in the morning for a walk or a hike takes a lot of determination ( hell – I tried to exercise in the morning and I couldn’t like for ever ) – so if he is so determined : how come he didn’t loose any weight ?
 
As sad as it is – the main reason for not succeeding in a weight loss process – is that people prefer to do what is EASY but not what is NEEDED !
 
What I mean is that for most of the people – going to a walk or a hike comes easier that changing self sabotage patterns.
 
However here is the problem with the easy choices – they might bite you in the butt – here is why :
 
Most of the time when people try to lose weight they start with intensive walking , running or hiking – as this is the easiest way to go …
 
The challenge is though in most cases people that carry a lot of extra weight create posture deviation that impacts the lower extremities joints starting from the hips to the knees and ankles – so most of the time they complain about lower back pain , knee pain or poor ankle mobility ..
When deviation is created – the body adapts to the WRONG alignment and activation !
So running or hiking with miss-alignment and muscle compensation makes things much worse .
 
Yes – it probably burns calories – but if the weight haven’t changed for some time then it doesn’t really matter is it ?
 
So what should you do if nothing in your weight has changed for some time ?
 
Simple !
 
Do what needed and put the efforts in the areas that does make the difference .

Unfortunately , people tend to chose the easy way out for two reasons :
1. It gives them the PERCEPTION of doing something towards their goal though deep inside they know they are ‘ driving on neutral ‘ .
2. It is easy and they don’t have to deal with the real problem .
Yes yes – people that SAY they want to lose weight tend to cheat themselves and do things that does not help them lose weight just to fail themselves…
.
Crazy I know…
How ?
Because in 100% of the times when people actually dealt with what they should – they have succeeded.
.
Now here is question for you to think about :
Why do you keep on doing the things that don’t work and put all this effort into something that you predominantly fail yourself in?
.
When you will find the answer to this question – the rest of the process will be easy.
