"Trust Your Coach"
"Trust The Process" ----WELL MAYBE.
Within the last year or so, I have heard and have seen some of the most scariest diets and workout plans circulating around social media for competing. There has been a bandwagon of wannabe coaches out there to make a quick buck.
Many competitors are getting sick along with disordered eating.
Attached (swipe) are some of those diets/workout plans that I have gotten ahold of. I have more but only sharing a few.
I, honestly cringe that some people actually PAY crazy amounts of money for these plans. (YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY)💰 Social Media has played a significant role to help motivate folks from couch to fitness. This I praise.
However, not everyone is qualified to provide healthy diet/workout plans. "The right coach for you?" Here are some tips when looking:
PLEASE do your research.
Educate yourself first and foremost. (the more YOU know the better). Ask questions, before a hire and during - a lot of questions. Never feel bad that you are asking questions. ASK!
Ask for ANY certifications.
Ask for references - call them.
Ask for a sample meal plan.
If you need to count anything such as five asparagus , six almonds, or omit sodium, fat burners- don't hire them.
Lastly, ask yourself - what is the true reason you wish compete- "what is your why?" Competing isn't for everyone, and this is okay. The hype of "The Gram" and parts of social media will faze out one day. However, you only have one body to live in. Protect it, take care of it, and choose wisely who you want work with.
If it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't.
Stay healthy my friends. 🙌 😘
