Not Knowing Goals: A Good Coach Can Work With Anything
By Chris Munro
Dan came to me looking to get in shape for an upcoming vacation. He knew he wanted to get leaner but didn’t know what was realistic and what his goal should be. I ran him through my intake process which gave me insights into factors such as diet, exercise, stress, sleep and his overall health. Then we measured his body fat using skin folds and took his weight.
With all this information, I put together a plan and gave him my honest opinion about what a realistic goal would be given the time we had to work with. I told him if he followed my protocol, he would lose around 20lbs of fat in 4 months. The results? Even better than expected – he lost 25lbs.
This is proof that you don’t need to know exactly what you want. If you come with the motivation to make changes, you can leave everything else up to me.
