Throughout my professional fitness career the following sentence is probably the most annoying thing I’ve heard, it’s mind boggling.
I’m going to join, I just need to get fit first.
Why does it bother me so much? There could be several reasons, one of them is because for some people it’s an excuse to do nothing about their current state of fitness, but that’s probably the least annoying reason. It becomes the most annoying when they’re actually serious. I mean come on, why do you think personal trainers study? But to tell you the truth, I also understand it in some cases, as there are those personal trainers who do not know how to progress their clients step by step and build them up brick by brick. I give them that.
If you’re working with a good trainer/coach then you should trust them to assess you, see what your current state of fitness is, what your weaknesses are, what your goals are and then work towards them with a plan.
