Today I think it’s worth examining what quality traits to look for in various coaches and trainers. After all, in today’s fitness arena we’re bombarded with readily available information and resources at the click of a button and many people put a great deal of faith in these online coaches and training resources simply because of their notoriety. So with that being said what do we look for in a quality coach? Read on my young Jedi to explore this question a bit further.
Regret kills the spirit. It’s like the old saying goes we will regret the things we don’t do more than the things we do. Sure you can make the argument that bad decisions in your life were decisions that you had rather not made, but had you never made them you would never learn, you would never understand correct alternatives, and you wouldn’t be able to advance in your life anywhere forward than your current standing.
You see regret is something that seeds in quietly and doesn’t rear its ugly head until you reach a point in your life where life reveals to you the realization that the opportunity that you walked away from was the biggest mistake of all. You can’t avoid it, it’s life.
For starters I don’t want to sound like I’m trying to nitpick with the semantics here, but I want to point out the difference between conditioning and general cardio.

This is where we move from general cardio to purposeful conditioning. Keep on reading to understand where I’m going with this.

It defies logic, but if you’re one of those individuals wanting to take an easier path then make sure you spend the next 90 seconds in the comfort of your home doing all of your shopping right here!
People are motivated by different things. When it comes to fitness what do you value? Are you motivated to look better? Are you motivated to feel better? Are you motivated to perform better for the purpose of competition? Are you just motivated to burn off that $3.00 combo value meal?
I only ask these questions because the thing that makes one individual tick may not have any bearing on the next person. Well no matter what motivates you the thing that makes all of this work is lean hard muscle and today I want to talk about three guaranteed ways you can achieve just that!
