So here we are another new year upon us. Of course this is a good time to bring to mind the happenings of the past year. The year of 2020 was monumental in many ways... many not so great ways, but this is the time to let the ghosts of yesterday die!
As a coach and a trainer this can be a very busy time of year. Perhaps the restriction on gyms will hamper this... perhaps not. I have no doubt that weight loss will continue to be at the top of many peoples minds regardless of whether they seek a trainer, a diet, or some sort of life style change. So before you feel this obligation to jump off into a fitness journey. Ask yourself... are you ready?

If you've identified you want to make a change but are not ready, you're half way there! Now you just have to get yourself ready. We in the health and wellness industry refer to this as the preparation phase and this should not take much time at all. It could take a few days, weeks, or a couple of months... but not years! So this is where you do your research and speak to professionals. Just remember on the flip side of not actually being ready as noted above, some people wait and wait, and ultimately either they're not ready because they just don't want it bad enough yet, or they don't act out of some sort of fear. Here are common "i'm not ready" procrastinations that indicate you're ready but that fear is getting in the way:
I hope this has helped you in some some small way. Thank you for reading my rant. I wish you a happy and prosperous 2021,
