Alex’s Journey
Alex initially entered Live Well to gain an understanding of exercise and a flame to kick start his fitness journey. He wanted to lower his cholesterol, loose his stomach fat, and maintain a balanced healthy lifestyle.
In conjunction with his shift work and nocturnal working hours, we had to find a balance between recovery, functionally, and just feeling good!
After 3 months at Live Well – training twice a week, he can confidently say he feels great! Additionally, he understands how his body moves, especially on the gym floor. The combination of cardiorespiratory exercise to prepare his heart and lungs; and strength training with time under tension to prepare his muscles, tendons, and ligaments throughout the acclimation period has assisted in how Alex functions in and out of the gym.
The progressive overload approach was utilised in order to allow room for optimal growth and reduce the risk of injury. It’s not always about what the results say on paper, but the exercise and nutrition education that will stick around forever.
THE most powerful conversations are the ones we have in our head each and every day.
I’m scared.
I don’t want to do this.
This is too hard.
I am a strong and confident.
I embrace hard things because they make me better and stronger everyday!
I love solving problems!
THE most powerful conversations are the ones we have in our head each and every day.
And when you’re not waking up with enthusiasm, then this IS a huge opportunity in personal growth for you.
Look, I KNOW the challenges in life can be scary.
But I also know that you must have courage, faith, belief and attack your fears to grow.
Where should you begin?
Start with the way you talk to yourself each day.
Here’s the equation:
Programming → Beliefs → Attitudes → Emotions → Actions → Results.
Where are you getting stuck?
Where do you need to fix the input to produce a better output?
Most people get stuck in either
A) negative attitude
B) processing difficult emotions. This clouds their judgement and holds them back from taking the action required to move forward.
When that’s the case, back up, take a deep breath…
fix your programming…
build up your beliefs…
and you’ll soon find yourself smashing through walls that once held you back.
Keep moving forward!
How are you going right now..?
I don’t know how things are going for you right now.
Maybe you’re doing awesome.
Maybe you’re at a low point and struggling to work through some challenges in front of you.
Either way…
This too shall pass.
And here’s what I mean by that:
It’s all too easy to get sucked into the emotional roller coaster that is just really the nature of life!.
Especially when you’re working hard, giving it your all, and doing everything you can to make your dreams come true.
But the reality is you’re NOT your best day.
And you’re NOT your worst day.
You are the average of ALL of those days put together.
Which means, regardless if you’re winning or losing, the MOST important thing is to always:
Keep a level head, stay humble and stay hungry!
Keep doing the right things needed to consistently move forward with your goals
When you do those 2 things… then you’ll ALWAYS be on the right track.
No matter what the scoreboard in life says today.
