Always go a step further than you think is possible. Even if you are the trainer and not the client. I took a boxing fitness. Lass this evening. One of the class was able to do the plank for a minute a time, over and over with ease. So I presented her with a series of progressions, from easy to super hard. I bet she gives each one a damn good go.
Did I sit and think no, she can’t do that so I won’t tell her that? No. That would be imparting my limiting beliefs on her. Instead I gave her ALL the options, that was it shows her that
Lunch: home made soup and bread roll
Dinner: chilli mince and orzo pasta
Sometimes in the world of coaching, others’ fitness comes first. Today I took a class, but didn’t have time to exercise myself as well. That’s ok, I love helping others achieve their goals and get a great buzz from that too.
