A common question I get asked is: “How do I get my clients to stay committed and motivated?”
My answer is always the same, RESULTS! When you see your hard work pay off, it’s definitely much easier to follow a meal plan and stay consistent with working out. This is what ultimately gets my clients to reach their goals. Any new client I meet, the first thing I mention is don’t cheat! I put a lot of emphasis on that because I know if they cheat, they don’t lose and don’t see results. That leads to failure and quitting! As clients stay committed and see results, then that’s how they stay motivated, on track and hungry for more.
You can have the best program and meal plan out there but without commitment and motivation, it’s just a piece of paper.
From the way they feel and look, their health improving, confidence is higher, clothes fit better and so much more! When you stay committed and all these great things start to happen then you stay motivated! Allow yourself to get to this point, it’s not an easy journey but keep reminding yourself why you started and acknowledge all these small goals you’re accomplishing along the way! Are my clients perfect? No! Do some cheat and give up? Yes! My duty as their trainer is to get them back on track and stay focused on their goals! Using positive reinforcement, reminding them how far they’ve come, supporting and listening to them. Using all tools I possibly can to spark the motivation once again!
