THE NON-GYM DOMINATION GUIDES

[THE MINDSET]

“I cannot do this without a gym.”

Hate to say it, but you’re right.

Our biggest obstacles are not real in the material sense, but are actually beliefs like these.

If we want to become the person we know we can be, we will have to battle all the limiting ideas that tell that us first why we CANNOT do it.  Here — without a gym and in charge of our own destiny — this is where we will take our stand.

To help you with this, we are giving you our actionable 3 step process that has helped transform the minds of countless others:

  1. Change Your Words
  2. Challenge Your Assumptions
  3. Create Your Environment

You will not get to where you want to go without belief. Let this book be your travel guide.

 

 [THE TOOLBOX]

“I don’t have time to research all this.”

It can be difficult crossing over from a gym to a non-gym.

It can be even harder transitioning from getting trained to actually becoming your own trainer.

Luckily, for both, we can take “shortcuts” to circumvent many of the unnecessary struggles. This book is one of those shortcuts.

In it, we save you time and energy by telling you:

  • What equipment you should buy (and where you can get it for cheap)
  • How you should eat (aka what trainers and nutritionists are afraid to tell you)
  • The 5 most beneficial supplements that you [probably] aren’t taking
  • And the books we read (and you should too) to “get motivated”

Best zero dollars you’ll never spend…

FITNESS MASTERY THROUGH COACHING

[GET FIT WITHOUT A GYM]

Training ourselves can be a confusing thing.university crest Fitness Mastery Through Coaching

  • Is my back supposed to hurt like this?”
  • Is my squat supposed to look like that?”
  • How much do I do, how often do I do it, and when can I stop?”

Tack on the many hours needed researching all this and the cold hard fact that there is often no one to hold us accountable and motivate us, it then becomes less surprising that we fail to reach our fitness goals.

Truth is, it’s a lot of work to set this all up correctly. Thankfully, however, there exists a magical universal law:

The smarter our work is, the easier it becomes.

This is where coaching comes in: I research –> You get a smart plan –> You do less but achieve more

Take a gander.

THE PROGRAM

Dear Prospective Clients:

Here are some things you should know.

5 THINGS ABOUT COACHING

STRONGMAN Fitness Mastery Through Coaching

My program: Strength meets holistic health

  1. I will accept those that want to train at a gym, however, priority will go to those looking to achieve awesome fitness without a gym.
  2. This is a performance program. It will make you stronger, help you move, feel, and think better, clear up pain and injuries, and a host of other things. It will most likely improve your physique as well, but this is not the focus (find out why here).
  3. I am giving you the smart work but I cannot do the hard work (that’s on you).  I am your accountability to increase those odds.
  4. I am not a “get quick fit” type of guy. 10+ years in this industry has taught me that the quicker the results come, the quicker they also go. I want to help you keep these results so prepare for a commitment.
  5. I am from the real world. I realize that shit happens, circumstances change, and that people change their minds. It is because of this that I offer a refund if you are ever dissatisfied with my service. Since this is about quality (and I hold myself high), I don’t foresee that happening.

FAT LOSS, MUSCLE GROWTH, AND THE ARCHER’S PARADOX

arrow2

FOCUS LESS

There is power in the ability to see the trees and the forest at the same time.

Archers, for example, aim slightly off the target to hit the middle (that’s the paradox).

They do this not only because the arrow bends (and throws the trajectory off slightly), but because over-focusing causes less accuracy.

When aiming for our targets, fat loss or mass gain, it’s no different. Overfocus here causes us to zoom in on only a couple of variables (be that calories or some certain “rule”) while neglecting the rest. Often, it is our health that pays the biggest price. Like I talked about in Why Chasing 6 Pack Abs May Make You Fatter, once our health goes, so does our results.

WE DON’T HAVE TO AIM AT THE CENTER

I’ve had clients lose twenty-to-thirty pounds without giving them a diet just like I, myself, have gained muscle without focusing on muscle growth.

The key is to aim slightly off to the side.

  • Instead of dieting and counting calories, eat more foods (greens, fiber) that cause you to naturally eat less.
  • Instead of adding more arm and chest exercises to build your upper body, do hormone-stimulating exercises like squats and deadlifts.
  • Instead of logging 5 hours a week on the treadmill, sleep more.

The point is that THIS is all related.

If you focus on changing one variable, you risk changing them all. If you do not know which variables these are, then failure is likely.

YOU VS. YOUR MIND

Friend: Hey bro. How do you find contentment?

Me: I think about people who don’t have anything or watch videos of horrific events. This makes it easy for me to be grateful of my own position in life.

Friend: Good point.

…. 10 minutes later

Friend: I’m discontent.

Me: Wanting more is written into our brains. Sometimes it’s healthy, sometimes it’s not. When it seems to be making your life worse, ask yourself, “Why am I discontent and not happy with what I have?”

Me: It isn’t real. Often it’s just chemicals in your brain that are out of whack.

Friend: What?

Me: Your discontent is fake. Being truly discontented is having no food to eat or no shelter over your head.

Friend: Yeah…that would suck.

———-

Why is it so easy to get sad and discontent these days even though we have so much (and sometimes even after we do gratefulness exercises)?

For a large part of it, I think it is because we listen to what we tell ourselves. We listen to our cravings, our impulses, and our sad/jealous/anger/whatever thoughts that enter our head.

The problem arises when we accept these thoughts as truth. We think, “These are my thoughts. My thoughts are me.  And they are right because they are me.”

So our mind tell us, “I am hungry. Go get DQ” and we do what it says (because it’s right, right?) or it says, “I’m sad. Don’t smile and think only of negative things” and once again, we give in to the dictator.

But here’s the thing: We are not our mind. And we don’t consciously create what it puts out.

We are only the observers; We sit on the outside.

When we are able to think about our thinking, that is the “I”. When we are on auto-pilot driving to work, that is the mind.

One is conscious, the other unconscious.

While both are produced by the brain, the mind has a mind of itself so to speak.

Ran by neurotransmitters, it has objectives. When dopamine is high, it wants more, more, more… When serotonin is high, it just wants to be lazy. When both are low, we don’t care… about anything. Throw in the standard hormones and we got a freaky-deeky mind on our hands.

These chemicals are why we cannot trust the mind and why we must be critical of it.

When our mind says, “I’m depressed”,  we must question it.

If anybody else said it, we would. We would probably ask “Why?” and “What can you do to get out of it?”.

For other people, we are therapists. For ourselves, however, we are whatever the mind says we are.

So next time we are feeling sorry for ourselves or craving a new purchase at the mall or thinking we need this or that to be happy, let’s challenge our mind.

Ask:

Why am I thinking this way?
Where did this belief/thought/impulse come from?
How can I view this differently?
What will happen if I accept or reject these thoughts?

This thing saying all this crazy shit — it isn’t us. We are the thinker. We own the right to accept or reject these thoughts.
