I recently had a conversation with a new client of mine who had previously done several other fat loss programmes.
My client explained that the main reason they signed up to these was because the programme was the “cheapest around”
My client also went on to explain that the level of mentoring and support that they received on these programmes was in her words…”terrible” and she was in fact “shocked” at the poor level of communication, despite lots of promises BEFORE she signed up.
This ultimately lead her to not achieving her weight loss goal each time.
Unfortunately this is something I have spoken to people about on numerous occasions which in all honesty frustrates the life out of me!
People in general will naturally want the cheapest option for everything and we have all been guilty of it in our life (myself included).
As the saying goes….”pay cheap, get cheap”
If you do have a genuinely strong desire to achieve your fat loss goal then before succumbing to the cheapest programme around, I would strongly recommend you check out “social proof” of the programme first.
Scroll down their social media pages and see if they have a history of helping people achieve their goals.
Read client testimonials on their pages or website, read their blogs or listen to their vlogs. Are they expressing a strong passion for helping people which is backed up with consistent client results.
I am not saying they need to have endless amounts of before and after photos because every trainer starts out new at some stage. I remember when I first started out how desperate I was to produce client results.
Client results can come in many forms other than photos but if someone has been a PT/coach for a significant period of time and claims to help people lose weight or improve their physique then in my opinion there should be a certain degree of social proof to back up what they are promoting in their programmes.
Ultimately this is why people sign up in the first place……to get their desired outcome.
Because of this you have to ask yourself if the “cheapest” option has social proof?
Myself and Kelly are very firm believers that to be the best version of yourself personally, professionally and physically you have to be prepared to VALUE it enough to INVEST in the BEST!
Over the years we have INVESTED heavily in not only our education but also our own physique development by hiring several coaches and mentors.
We have both prepped for photo shoots which has helped us have a better understanding of what each of our clients endures during the coaching process.
We would never expect anyone to do what we aren’t prepared to do ourselves.
I have been coaching in the fitness industry for 15 years and I can tell you right now that the right level of mentoring and support on any health & fitness journey is absolutely crucial!
Having the correct programming and nutrition that is monitored weekly is essential, but ultimately people need support and reassurance when the inevitable self doubts creep in.
They require constant reminders as to what they are working towards and how long it will take for them to achieve this because there can quite often be a lot of “mental barrier” built up from years of poor lifestyle habits and bad advice.
Individual time frames vary and distractions and temptations will emerge during your journey. Without the right level of mentoring from a coach who has a genuine passion for helping people, it is very easy to take the easy option and QUIT!
I know a lot of you reading will be able to relate to this!
I will finish on this……..IF you do have a genuinely strong desire to achieve your FAT LOSS goal BUT have continued to fail by yourself, then believe me when I say you should ALWAYS source out help from the BEST coaches NOT the CHEAPEST. Simply because in the end, you will have spent more hard earned cash shopping for the cheapest option over and over again.
