This is a post specifically for women about the unfortunate fleecing occurring daily on social media that drives them pay for ridiculous workouts, diets, and other irrelevant gimmicks in hopes of losing weight and getting toned. I have never been a fan of this terminology due to it being misleading in nature. I am fully convinced that a large percentage of women whom use that term do so arbitrarily without truly understanding what it means.

I cannot stress enough that change is difficult. Fat loss, muscle gain, and improved performance take a great deal of both physical and mental effort. True transformation comes through acceptance of discomfort while continuing to proceed forward. It goes far beyond just desiring or wanting to change. The ideology that if you believe hard enough, the change you desire will occur, is a lie.

A base piece of my process for intaking a new client is to clearly define the overall goal of the client. Once the goal is established it helps to define the focus of programming regarding nutrition as well as approach to training. As a coach it allows me to set what clients should prioritize to put them in the best position to succeed.

Show of hands for those whom are familiar with or played Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out? Yes, I am aware this shows my age. If you didn’t raise your hand you should still be able to follow along and get the point of this blog. The blog title “007-373-5963” is forever etched in my brain from childhood. This code will allow you to skip right to the end and fight Tyson.

As a part of the human ego, we prefer to fancy that we are unique or different from others. This notion is illustrated by the numerous items of apparel available and social media posts / images around being the physical manifestation of a unicorn itself. I am going to apologize in advance for having to burst that rainbow-colored bubble (ideology) as it relates to nutrition goals (weight loss, performance, composition change). Before we begin, I want to make a brief disclaimer that there are and will always be situations in which a medical condition, prescribed medication, and so on affect our body weight and/or performance. I have no intention of ignoring that fact but will state that those are usually the edge cases or less likely reason for not attaining goals.
