There is a saying (and I believe it was made popular by Woody Allen) that “80% of success is showing up”.
I find that the hardest part of exercise is actually getting myself dressed for a workout, and then getting to the gym or outside.
For some reason, I resist putting on workout clothes and shoes, and then have to talk myself into getting out the door.
There have even been times when I have managed to get ready, get as far as the gym door or carpark, and then find an excuse as to why I shouldn’t work out.
Even though I know that after the first 5 minutes I will really begin to enjoy myself, and find exercising easy and effortless. Even though I know that after a workout I will feel freaking amazing. I have never, ever, regretted exercising.
The more I get to the gym, or the beach, the more I want to do it. It becomes easier, and as I start to feel better physically and emotionally, and have more energy, I tend to look after myself better in other areas.
I have had a few clients confide in me that it is a bit the same when it comes to booking their first appointment to see me.
They know they need to do something to change their health. They know they need access to knowledge, advice, tools and perhaps investigative tests to help unlock the keys to better health.
But the hardest part is actually committing to attending that first initial appointment. Some have procrastinated about booking the appointment. Some clients have no problems booking in, but then will cancel at the last minute.
But those that do come in, find that after that first few minutes of the appointment, that the whole process of managing their health becomes easier.
They know I have their back.
They receive the treatment plan that I put together especially for them.
I give them the knowledge and tools, and create a step-by-step outline of what they need to do to either feel less bloated, lose weight, gain more energy, have less pain in their joints, deal better with stress, or cope with the health condition which has been holding them back.
That is why I have made it as easier as possible for clients to book and pay online for their first appointment.
Because 80% of success is just showing up. After that, we are in it together.
I can help you go from burnt-out, stressed, lethargic and unmotivated to energetic, enthusiastic, vibrant and healthy.
I can also help with anxiety and low mood, weight management, bloating and other digestive troubles, women’s health and skin problems.
If any of the above sound like you, and you are ready to make your health a priority, then book your appointment online now. And then show up :)
