The crux of this commentary stems from my career in fitness, health and sports development coaching, observations of certain quarters of the exercise industry and a recent conversation with a friend whom I respect greatly as a man.
Whilst this unquestionably goes against the grain of parts the exercise industry, I have no concern on making this statement or even offending some for I feel the issue of weight management has been dealt with poorly on many fronts.
I have enjoyed a remarkable career, accomplished virtually everything that is possible within the sporting sector across the world as well as assist tens of thousands each year in attaining their health and fitness goals. Yet my goals are not merely a new trophy for the case and certainly not a financial reward but building and improving the quality of lives in my community. For those who have attended my seminars and events, or even read me on a regular basis, you are well aware that my methodology runs deep as I push my clients towards a healthier lifestyle and far beyond the scope typically considered.
However parts of the exercise industry, much like sections of the general public, are afflicted with a sickness that causes them to cast negative commentaries of an individual’s weight. Being healthy is not a reflection in the mirror or the dysfunctional body image that has tainted the public for at least twenty-years but something broader.
Briefly, through my entire career I have never met a single individual who has become a “better person” because they have lost weight. They certainly may be healthier after losing weight and could potentially “open the doors” to a better life but is it not a guaranteed event. I hope each of you live healthy, passionate lives that embody honour, faith and a commitment to bettering your fellow man but the weight loss route should go much deeper and provide you an avenue to your greatest dreams.
With that said, I can teach you how to lose weight, discover the physique you have always wanted but it will come with the extra benefit that I insist upon, that being improve the quality of your life.
For those whom are overweight, ignore the ridicule and feel free to ask for my help. I ask for nothing in return other that the blessing of helping you see the greatness that lay within. It’s there, trust me, but you must have faith and to do so you must eliminate the negative commentary that ignores the beauty, the greatness you already possess.
Returning to my notation of my seminars, my typical opening statement is bold and comes from deepest part of my heart:
Give me the time and I will improve the quality of your life.
I can help you learn what types of food to eat to assist your weight loss goals but you will find the much greater benefit of building bonds in your community with locally harvested produce and then enjoying the meal across the table with family and friends as a moment of fellowship.
I can teach you how to exercise properly to lose weight but you will find the added benefit of healthier living, being pain-free and in-fact enjoying participating in fun events with, you guessed it, family and friends as a moment of fellowship.
We sit at an earliest dawn of a great era, where connectivity has improved to extraordinary levels and with it, opportunities are boundless. Each of us can attain our goals, whether that is within fitness, health, education or a multitude of objectives but it starts in believing, having faith, being a part of restoring classic values and unlocking that greatest within.
Without question the tools to lose weight are never more available and along with the knowledge base of diet, supplementation and exercise your goals are within reach but let me stress, let’s add just one more objective. Lose weight, not simply to attain your physique goals but to enjoy a better quality of life.
I will conclude this commentary in a slightly different manner because I suspect it is important to understand why I do this and for that matter associated with this wonderful company that is more akin to a family than a business.
