Did you know that what you do outside of the gym is even more important for your results than what you do inside the gym?
**And just because you eat clean doesn’t mean you’re off the hook!
Today more than ever people are training more often, and with greater intensity.
People are no longer afraid to go after it, and in many realms, like CrossFit, people are priding themselves on consistently pushing their physical limits. As a lifelong athlete and gym rat, nothing makes me happier.
A quick glance on social media at any time can get you direct access to many accomplishments for that day: a new PR (personal record) hit, body fat loss results, 10,000 steps taken, and even results for a personal competition. I love that fitness has become such a focus.
As a high achiever, like most of you, I learned early on that it takes more than a commitment to training hard. I know eating clean can help, and many of you have taken that up as well, but it takes more to really reach your ultimate self! I think Robin Sharma sums it up best with this quote:
“Peak performance without strategic refueling leads to enduring depletion.”
Depletion, otherwise known as fatigue, has begun to haunt many of you, and it is holding you back from looking incredible, having limitless energy, and crushing your PRs! Strategic refueling is your most powerful ally, yet it’s the most common missing element in the lifestyles of 99% of all of the clients I have worked with. Why? It’s simple.
You are constantly bombarded with the message that you simply just to need to sacrifice yourself for better results: exercise more, restrict food, stop eating carbs. These are the current “holy grail” solutions! If you have trained hard enough and long enough you realize training hard and eating clean only gets you so far. Eventually it gets harder and harder to get out of bed. You start to notice your brain’s not as sharp as it used to be. Your drive for life and—let’s be honest—sex are nonexistent.
