RYPT Mindset Corner: Failure

  • How to fail in your fitness goals

As a new addition to the RYPT online blogging, I have decided that I will be looking at one idea of psychology each week and reviewing how it can help with your fitness.

This week: New Year, Same Me

I genuinely despair at this time of year with the abundance of fitness marketing out there. Everything you could possibly think of is thrown in the face of masses with reckless abandon.

I do feel sorry for people who don’t succeed in their fitness goals because it’s practically all that everyone talks about this time of year and the pressure to succeed is huge (as is the expectation when people spend big money on health items).

Unlike a new toothbrush, a fitness product isn’t guaranteed to work regardless of what the item promises. It requires self discipline and also knowledge.

Here are the top 10 reasons for fitness failure

  • Not knowing what to do

All of these problems can be solved by one thing: guidance. If you know what you are doing then you naturally become more motivated, see the results faster and know that despite small setbacks (which will happen), you won’t quit.

Doing things on your own initiative is great but it certainly has it’s limitations. Afterall, spending some money on yourself that will actually improve your quality of life, enjoyment and help you feel better mentally is surely worth it!

When I started fitness, it was using a workout plan from a book, I had no idea if I was doing it right and I had lots of unanswered questions about my plan. In hindsight, invested in a gym plan from a coach or even personal training would have sped up the process dramatically.

It essential boils down to how much you can preserve with the knowledge you have and whether you have the time to expend with it.

It was by trying to help many people (in particular beginner’s) getting fit that the RYPT app was born. There had to be a way to provide a fantastic service to my clients (even when I wasn’t there) and for a lower cost…

The RYPT app was developed for beginners fitness levels with the goal of making a healthy lifestyle and exercise more accessible whenever, wherever you workout and regardless of your past experience. The fully demonstrated exercises and personalised plan will guarantee you have a first rate service.

So change your thinking going into 2018 and try something that is GUARANTEED to work…
