The top reason my clients hire me is for health. Most of them are very unfit and or obese and or are on their way to metabolic disorders.
Once we establish the why we work very hard at the how.
I nudge and remind them of their goals as we go, however, goals do and will change so we sit down and review quite often, re-set if we need and get back to it!
It can be over whelming and discouraging to many beginning the fitness journey which is why I have my cleints set SMART goals and stay focused on the moment rather than the past.
