For over 26 years, I have been helping people transform their bodies…melting body-fat, getting stronger, getting fitter, getting healthier, etc.
During that time, I have employed about a bazillion different strategies…meal plans, supplement protocols, training programs, mind-body techniques, psychological counselling, pharmaceuticals…the list goes on and on and on.
While most of those techniques were “borrowed” from other trainers, medical professionals, workout buddies and scientific research, the most important part of my education came from the people I worked with.
Because no matter how effective my transformation programs are, as soon as you introduce the human element into the equation, all bets are off.
What works for one person almost never works with the next victim/client.
There are so many factors at play – physical, mental, emotional, social, financial, legal and of course genetic/epigenetic.
Unlike an exact science like physics and chemistry, transforming an adult human being from this….
… into this, is not as simple as…
Like our fingerprints, all of us are unique. Each of us has…
- A unique genetic makeup
- Unique life experiences
- A unique social life
- Unique belief systems
- A unique knowledge base
- Unique financial resources
- Etc, etc, etc…
And because of this uniqueness, applying a one-size-fits-all solution to a complex problem like permanent fat loss is usually doomed to failure.
Like our fingerprints, we are complex…full of unique loops, whorls and arches.
So….before you run out and spend some cash on the latest diet book, weight loss supplement or fitness program, I want you to stop, take a long hard look at yourself.
Will this one-size-fits-all solution fit YOUR fitness / fat loss fingerprint?
NOTE: I hope this article didn’t discourage you. While I truly believe that physique transformation can be complicated at times, it isn’t rocket science. If you’re having trouble getting yourself in shape, there are lots of great people out there with the knowledge of what needs to be done. Renting their knowledge, confidence and support may cost you some cash up-front, but the pay-off at the end is definitely worth it.
It’s the same reason I don’t try to do my own car repairs. I need my car for work and I suck as a mechanic.
