CREATING INDEPENDENCE: Know the 'whys' and 'hows' of your training so you can be equipped for life.
Is your workout regime creating independence? Are you gaining control of the ‘whys’ and ‘how’s’ of exercise, empowering you the ability to replicate it months or even years down the road? Many times majority of workout routines and/or personal trainers fail to guide their clients on a path of health and fitness education. Those that are educated properly will start to comprehend the purpose behind what it is that they are doing; hence, creating independence for that client. It is nice to have guidance, but to be dependent on one person or one program for the rest of your life is unrealistic and non-productive in the long run. One of the top reasons our general health and fitness industry isn’t producing a healthy America because we are giving people fish instead of teaching them how to fish: we are not creating independent clients who are educated with the “whys” and the “how’s” of their fitness workouts.
SportsFXN’s training program is to help bridge that gap between the client and the workouts through educating not just your mind but your body as well. One of the best ways to keep people engaged and motivated through a workout is by constantly challenging their physiology in such a way that our brain can comprehend what is it being asked of as well as WANT to continue with that process. Lack of education is where failure happens; that client wants to give up, because the workouts are either 1. Too hard or 2. Too easy. As many of us learned at such a young age it is the porridge that is “just right” is the one that is chosen. If it is too hot or too cold, we are left starved, deprived of the sustenance and sustainability to propel us to a life of health and wellness. SportsFXN’s main goal is to create a client who becomes independent; educated and takes back control of their health and fitness for not just the now but for the many years to come.
