LISTEN TO YOUR TRAINER – Sometimes people have the best intentions in hiring a coach BUT they battle and question the coach consistently – know the reasons why you hired a coach in the first place and reflect on your ‘old ways’. Did your old ways work for you in the past?COMMUNICATION – Occasionally clients forget about this part and just want the next phase of workouts or nutrition. How can your coach know what the next phase is for you if the coach doesn’t know your stats or progress?
We all know how important water is for our basic survival. However, for athletes and active individuals, water is simply vital if we want to achieve optimal performance. Here are 5 important reasons why you should never neglect the importance of water:
1. Fat takes more than four times the space as muscle. TRUE – muscle takes up less space so that’s why sometimes inches can come off but the scale doesn’t change.2. You can turn fat into muscle through training. FALSE – Body fat and muscle are two completely different tissues and have different structures and functions. One does not have the capability to turn into the other.
