Have you heard the myth going around that personal trainers don’t drink or eat crap?

A lot of people who aren’t in the fitness world feel that personal trainers live in this paragon of virtue life:

  • They don’t drink
  • They don’t eat pizza or chocolate
  • They don’t go out socialising
  • They go to bed at the same time everyday

This leads to the idea that getting involved in being fit and strong means that nothing is any fun anymore. That is not true. We all eat ‘crap’ at The Warrior Programme and some of us drink. We all have a life where there’s a level of balance and compromise. We tend to think about making changes in a black and white manner: ‘If I start getting fitter and stronger, I have to give up seeing my friends, drinking and having any fun with food.’

We often feel like we can’t have a balance between things, perhaps that isn’t true? Perhaps you can eat the things that you want, have fun and enjoy the life that you want to live.

Getting fitter and stronger will enable you to be healthier and have more energy, therefore you have more time and energy to go out there and have fun!

If you build a body that is strong and resilient that works for your life, you will have more energy at work which will result in pushing through more boundaries, getting more money and clients, increasing the likelihood of promotion. This then enables you to have more leisure time, not less.

It’s about curating that balance which enables you to find a pattern that’s sustainable. You keep getting stronger. You keep having fun. Everything ultimately becomes more aligned with the goals that you have for yourself
