2 Wheels of the Same Bike

Last week, twice, I was asked the question about exercise routines and such.


And as I explained to the question-eers, I will explain to you.


If you are using exercise as a means to lose weight, you are barking up the wrong tree.


What?! You say….


Why would a ‘gym guy’ be saying this? Doesn’t it go against the very nature of the business?


On the surface, I can see why you would think that, but dig a little deeper.


Coaching requires truth, even when you know it will get you a sideways look. Often that truth comes in the form of wisdom which is many years of real life failure and observation.


Yes, you can stay in line and repeat the dogma that weight loss is a caloric equation because to go against this is to go against the establishment.


Lucky for you, my mind works best by always questioning the establishments that be.


Exercise and nutrition (habits) are two wheels of the same bike. They both need each other.


Exercise is for your brain, there are certain growth hormones that can only reach your brain and cross the blood-brain barrier through physical movement. These hormones make you feel better, they improve your attitude and focus.


Thus, they will drive better habits outside of the gym, and its within those habits that losing fat occur: fasting, sleeping, resting, etc.


If you just try using one of the wheels in your quest, you will find it much harder to attain success.


If you don’t believe me, just do some reality math and observe those in your life that workout, but don’t really pay too much mind to what they eat or how they eat or watch those that chronically diet without any type of exercise…..


They never, ever, get lasting results.
