It’s not money, it’s your priorities.
We haven’t been posting as regularly as we are at full capacity at Rev and our time is structured and counted for down to the minute. We feel very privileged that through a pandemic our business has come out the other end and thrived. We’ve had to turn many people away which never feels quite right but capping our members is how we ensure we keep our personalised, private and exclusive environment.
Here’s something to think about…..I had a convo with one of our clients who said starting here is the best decision he’s ever made in his life. He spent years making excuses until one day he’d had enough. One of those reasons was the cost…. until he looked into his spending.
If you think personal training is too expensive yet you go out to restaurants weekly and spend over $100 on the family then is it lack of money or is it your priorities that are the issue?
I’m not saying going out for tea is a bad thing for anyone who feels triggered by that, who doesn’t enjoy being cooked for, I’m saying clearly that is prioritised over accountability to exercise and if that’s the case then clearly it’s not a money issue, it’s a priority issue. Health and Fitness is possibly just not a priority for you.
Think of where $100 goes every week.
I know people who spend that on alcohol, cigarettes, shopping sprees on things that become junk within a month.
Pointless travel, bought lunches everyday at work, a good chunk of it on coffees and stop ins at cafes. On one hand we can say great for supporting local businesses (keep it up) and do what you want, it’s your life, BUT, don’t go complaining to a health coach/PT/nutritionist who works their arse off to keep you turning up and striving for what you say you want. This is exactly when I see passion die in these enthusiastic young PTs who have gifts to share.
These coaches don’t love getting up at 5am every day and finishing at 8pm. They don’t get paid for your complaints and lack of discipline. They are there to support you and guide you with knowledge, empathy, understanding and structure (which requires you to be disciplined). They will believe in you when you don’t yet believe in yourself.
Their time and their knowledge is priceless and something you can carry with you for a lifetime.
We talk about this endlessly at Rev. Priorities. Be real with yourself, don’t let stupid excuses come out of your mouth. You can train online with some PTs for as little as $10-$15 a month. That’s ridiculous!
You can get fairly clear on what your values and priorities are by looking at your bank statement every week.
And if you don’t like what your current priorities are then you can change them.
