The One Thing I Would Change In This Industry.

This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. 💭💭💭


And with the time of year being a very common time of change, I wanted to write something on it.


If there was one thing I would change about this industry, or at least help make steps towards improving on, then it would be this.. 👇🏼


I feel, that there are too many cases, of people chasing goals that THEY don’t really want.


Hear me out..


They think they want it, they’re convinced they want it.


It’s absolutely not in anyway, my place to tell people what they want and don’t want of course. This is just simply an observation.


I’ve done it.


I once spent 6 weeks training for a 200kg Deadlift, only to realise, and I’ll be honest.. I’m really not that arsed about getting stronger and setting PB's.. 🤷🏼‍♂️


I got caught up in people around me wanting to get stronger, that I thought that’s what I wanted.


If that is what you want, then amazing! Go after it! 👊🏼


But, if you’re like me, you’re not REALLY that bothered and breaking Personal Records, yet find yourself going after it anyways, then maybe it’s worth having a re-think.


Just last year, I was about 2 months in to writing out an 8 Week Nutrition Plan to release in the New Year.


Then I realised, I don’t want to talk about protein and carbs. My passion doesn’t lie in telling someone how many calories they should be eating. It maybe used to be, but it certainly isn’t now.


Working as a coach in this industry I come across people everyday who have goals.


And all I can do, is simply urge everyone who has a clear goal, to ask themselves, is it something you REALLY want? Or is it because you think it’s what you should want? Or because all of your friends are chasing it?


It’s one of the most liberating feelings to have a goal, and know that you TRULY want it, and aren’t just following some kind of trend.


🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼


What do you think?
