Amazing Results in ONLY 15 DAYS!!!

I get quite frustrated from 30 day programs. I get more frustrated from 21 day programs.

Just now I saw on Instagram a 15 day program.

Seriously. WTF!?

What the fuck can you possibly achieve in 15 days?

In the post they’re hyping that it’s a diet plan, recipes, workouts, a group for support and coach all for only $150.

$150 for a 15 days program!?!

Now, $150 for a diet plan, workouts and coaching might not be that bad of a price, but again, what the fuck will you achieve in 15 days?

As always, I wonder then what?

This is the loophole.

Let’s say it’s a super strict cutting regimen. You actually see results because you go after it 100%. Heck, it’s only 2 weeks right. Anyone can go 100% for 2 weeks.

You’re so “successful” you lose 10 pounds!! Amazing results right!?!

But still, then what?

Will you be better off?

Will you be able to keep it off?

Will you have learned anything?

No you won’t. You will have forced yourself to succeed BECAUSE it’s so short term. You have ZERO plans or focus on the long term and how to MAINTAIN the results you just created.

Usually, you’ll be so exhausted by the intensity of the 15 days you’ll happily dance back into your “normal” routine and go right back to day 1.

This shit drives me crazy!

If you’re falling for this stuff and frustrated with not getting any results. You should be.

That stuff doesn’t work, it never works, and it never will. Stop falling for it.

I hope this post sheds some light on the process of these things and helps you see why. If you want long term results, get a long term mindset.

At least something beyond 15 days. Or 21. Or 30. Or even 90.

Please.

I won’t sacrifice your health for faster “gains”

Gain

Yes you are pursuing your fitness goal with maximal intensity, but is it at the sacrifice of other areas of your health?

I’m seeing this more and more lately so I wanted to address it.

Here’s my perspective:

I’m a Kinesiologist.

For the purposes of this article, all that means is that I study the movement and function of the body and how it works.

As a fitness coach, what this means is that when I create an exercise program for someone, I’m not only looking at their end goal and what they are trying to achieve, I’m also looking at their body and how well it functions.

What I see so much of today in the fitness industry is a singular focus intensity. Everyone wants HIIT workouts that “make me sweat”.

The good news from a coaching perspective is that making a workout hard is easy. I see endless amounts of videos on Facebook and Instagram of people creating insane workouts and super challenging variations of exercises. My personal simplification of it is: #JustAddBurpees

And it does make sense because intensity is how we get results.

It’s easy to make someone sweat and it’s easy to make someone work hard and push their intensity.

However, this often comes at a sacrifice to other areas of health or function in the body.

I see this in high intensity workout programs that don’t address body proper body mechanics and this creates added strain on joints and connective tissue.

I’m tired of seeing olympic lifts for added intensity meanwhile the knees and back are bending in ways that anyone watching knows is not right.

Bottom line, I’m not willing to make intensity the highest priority at the sacrifice of another area of health or physical function just for faster gains.

In my coaching I take the time to build a solid foundation with each client based on their individual needs. I take time to make sure they move and function well and I make sure they don’t develop other health issues just to lose a few quick pounds.

Unfortunately this process takes a lot longer than what we tend to see put in front of us online, but I don’t care.

I won’t sacrifice long term health for a short term result.

My goals is to help you create a body that not only looks good, but will function great for the rest of your life!

The real reason your program isn’t working

  • Not seeing results quick enough?
  • Hit a plateau?
  • Feel you need to try something else?
  • Feel like what you’re doing just isn’t working?

I get a lot of reasons for people wanting quit because “this isn’t working”.

They’ve hit some sort of plateau, aren’t seeing results quick enough or have just had a week or two “off the wagon” and have struggled a little bit.

They feel they won’t be successful with their current plan and that it’s just not working.

However, from my perspective, slow progress, plateau’s and struggle is totally normal and common.

In fact, I’ve never seen anyone NOT struggle with their goal.

To think you can start off on something new, never struggle and be able to reach your target perfectly the first time is a little crazy if you think about it.

What I usually see is that it’s not the program that’s not working.

The issue I see most commonly is time.

People haven’t put in the time needed to truly see results.

 

We wall want the results NOW!

And why not? We see endless amounts of ripped bodies and ads on Instagram and other social media telling us it can be done quickly and easily.

Really that should be your first warning sign! It’s all total bullshit!

However, you believe it because they have proof! There are clear photos of the success people have had. There are testimonials of how great it has been, how easy it was and how good they feel.

Now I’m not trying to discredit any of these programs because many are probably pretty good. I’m talking more specifically about the time or speed of these results that the plans and programs are suggesting.

In my experience the promotional testimonials you are seeing fall into the “results not typical” category. At best I would guess 1% of people see results that quickly. Especially the type of results that are going to last.

My challenge to you is to actually do some research. Put in some time, put in some work and maybe even reach out to others.

How many people have actually done that “90 day Shred” program? Of those, how many experienced the stated results? Of those, how many kept those results long term after the 90 days?

Of the truly successful ones, ask “How long did it take you to get these results”

I guarantee it won’t be an overnight success story. I guarantee they didn’t nail it on their first try with no struggle.

In the end, my guess is that you’re probably just going to finish this article and say “I know Chad” and go on with your day.

We all REALLY know right?!

However, if your fitness goals are set 3 months at a time I’d argue that you don’t know. If you’ve tried more than 2, 3 or 4 different programs with little success or success that didn’t last, then you don’t really know.

It makes sense in your head, but when you’re motivated to try something new you forget it and think you’ll be different. You think you’ll be part of the 1%.

You think THIS will be the program that finally works!

But please, please, please do the research! Don’t just take my word for it.

This article is just words and theory on a website. Get some proof! At minimum just ask some friends and/or truly look at your own track record.

It’ll be incredibly valuable the next time you hit a plateau or rut on your journey.

When you struggle, it’s not always just the plan or program that’s not working.

More often than not, it’s probably not working because you haven’t put in enough time to get past the struggle.
