Setting expectations too high and why you shouldn’t do that

Does it feel like all the advertised fitness programs out there are just too hard to follow?!

Well … that’s probably because they are and you don’t have to feel guilty about not being willing to participate.

LET ME EXPLAIN:
If you have seen the perfect body promoted everywhere and shows like “Revenge body” you know what I’m talking about.

Those things are just unrealistic for most people or better yet, very hard to achieve. I’m not saying it’s impossible. I’m just saying that because they are so hard to implement, most people quit the idea even before they experience it.

And can you blame them? NO! Because that training it’s not a one size fits all.

YES! If you are aiming for the Olympics, becoming a professional athlete or look like Claudia Schiffer in one month you do have to hustle, put in the hours and sweat to get there.

But that’s a totally different goal from just being a normal healthy person who eats well and exercises on a regular basis.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT
So first thing you need to decide on is where do you want to be. Reverse engineer your goal, that’s the best way to start. If you want to become Roger Federer then don’t waste your time reading this and go practice. But if you want to live a healthy life while working a 9-5 and taking care of your kids, then you should definitely set realistic goals.

CONCLUSION
The lesson here is to know what you want and have it clear in your mind. Just ignore all the flashy ideas out there. Remember that if they were boring they wouldn’t sell. But in our case, “boring” is what we want.

Trust the process and the results will come. This is valid as long as you follow a program that is suited for your needs and not an idealistic goal that few people have the time and energy to work for.

The truth is that most can achieve more than they believe by working on it just a little each day.
