“Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like” Will Smith
I fell into this trap early on in my fitness career. I spent too much time and energy trying to ‘keep up with the crowd’ and do and say things that others were doing because I thought it was going to help me grow my business.
Guess what, it didn’t happen.
The reason is didn’t happen was because I was trying to be someone I wasn’t. I was trying to impress other personal trainers, trying to impress people who would never buy my services.
Not a great start to my business or personal training career lol
I see it with people when they start out on their health and fitness journey.
They spend an insane amount of money on Nike gym kit, buy all the supplements going and subscribe to all the latest fitness gurus on social media.
They spend emotional capital on the things that don’t have a big impact on their journey and when they don’t reach their goals they spend even more trying to get there.
If you are starting out on your health and fitness journey, invest a small amount on getting started.
Ask if any gyms are doing trials or taster sessions to get a feel for the place to see if it is going to be a good fit for you.
Get to know the environment, the members and of course the coaches before investing your hard earned cash.
Read their social media content and if you feel it resonates with you reach out to them. Don’t jump on the band wagon and do what Sally in the office is doing because Sally might not be on the same journey as you.
The only person you should be trying to impress is YOU.
