There Are No Shortcuts

There are no short cuts.
There are no quick fixes.

I know this because I spent a long time looking for them & I’m telling you this so you can stop searching.

The path to having abs requires commitment and hard work.
The path to having bigger arms requires commitment and hard work.
The path to getting rid of your belly fat requires commitment and hard work.
The path to being able to walk down the stairs with getting out of breath requires commitment and hard work.

But you don’t have to be perfect.

You just have to show up and put in the work. As often as you can.

I’m not what people would consider perfect. Not by a long stretch.

And you don’t have to be either.

  • I eat carbs after 6pm.
  • Sometimes I skip breakfast.
  • I only train 3-5 times per week.
  • I eat ice cream. Lot’s of ice cream.
  • I drink. Sometimes.
  • I very rarely do “traditional” cardio.

Maybe you don’t do the things above and you’re happy doing that. That’s cool.

But if you do what I do, don’t think you’re missing out on the secret to being in shape.

There isn’t one. The shortcut doesn’t exist.

You can do those things and reach your goals. Trust me. But you still have to put in the work.

I do it. I show my clients how they can do it to. If they want to.

There will always be a new fad or “secret” to being in better shape.

You guys, everything works. To an extent.

Try something. Stick to it. Assess results.

Here’s the real “secret” plan you need:

– Eat in accordance with your goals – for fat loss be in a calorie deficit. For muscle gain be in a moderate calorie surplus
– Eat enough protein
– Stay hydrated
– Allow yourself flexibility to eat the occasional junk food. Stick to the 80-90% principle.
– Train like you mean it at least 3 times per week. Don’t push yourself to physical exhaustion but don’t coast through your training sessions either. Showing up is one thing but you’ve still got to put in the work.
– Follow a programme that you can commit to fully. Don’t jump in half heartedly. Go all in.
– Walk more. Seriously.

It may not be easy but it is that simple.

There are no shortcuts.
