I’d like to talk to you about one of the main problems people make when it comes to
their fitness and wellbeing. The Accountability Problem:
If you don’t feel 100% accountable, you won’t be able to lose that weight.
We are grown-ups. Unless you have a bossy partner or a friend, nobody keeps you accountable
to get fit and healthy. When you buy that delicious bottle of wine on a Thursday evening,
order a takeaway on a Friday evening or not exercise for days/weeks, nobody keeps you
accountable. It’s just down to you. You might already have a personal trainer
who you see weekly. As a traditional concept in personal training, you are buying their
time to train you for that specific booking time. That’s it. The rest of the time you
are literally on your own. You are responsible for your own healthy eating, your own additional
exercises in between sessions, if needed, and for your healthy decisions. If you are lacking accountability, what you
need is daily check-ins and regular communications. This is so essential. So if you don’t have
this additional service from your trainer, find an accountability body, a colleague,
partner or friend to keep each other accountable. You might not get the best professional service
that you get from a fitness coach, but remember if it’s a friend, then it’s free and it
is better than not having one!
