A Tool by Any Other Name…

Posted on Updated on

Every time you get online there is a new article about the latest, greatest fat burning or muscle building tools.  One week it’s bands, the next it’s dumbbells, the next it’s kettlebells.  The sad truth is, they’re all wrong.

The best tool for body transformation is WILLPOWER.

Do I not use any of the aforementioned tools when I train my clients?  Of course I do.  When it comes to changing how you look the only universal tool is willpower.  Barbells are a specific tool with some specific applications.  Even movements like the squat have a specificity to them. Willpower is your only all-encompassing tool that you have.  Willpower can keep you on your diet, it can push you for that extra rep, and it can make you turn off the boob tube at night and get some sleep.

So where do we get willpower?  It’s something that comes from inside you and no amount of external motivation can change that.  No amount of positive notes you write to yourself and no amount of cheering from your friends can change whether or not you are willing to make the necessary changes to reach your goals and maintain those results.

Changes don’t have to me huge either, they just need to be sustainable over the long term.  This is why having a professional in your corner is so important.  You need someone who is going to teach you proper exercise form as well as how to eat.  Trainers or programs that don’t teach you anything don’t do you any good!
