Probably one of the top 10 questions I get asked by new clients is,
“How long will it take before I start to see some results?”
Well, the answer to that question is a tough one, because a great deal of it relies on the client. It depends on:
- How motivated you are to create changes in your body
- How well you will adhere to nutritional and lifestyle changes
- Your age
- Your sex
- The amount of stress you have in your life
- …and so on and so forth.
Now, assuming that you follow my instructions and advice reasonably well (you strength train consistently, you eat well for the most part, you get semi-adequate recovery), you can expect to see tangible results in about 4-6 weeks; maybe later if you aren’t particularly good with nutrition or if you miss workouts, etc.
Again, I have two words for every client current or new–”lifestyle change.” It has to be within you to change your lifestyle. How much time do you really have? I can’t believe that one hour a day to take care of ”you” in some way can be too much.
It’s all about the choice my client is willing to make when they walk out my door from a session. I do wish I could be there to say don’t eat that and get up and do your cardio, but that choice has to be made on the true positive goal that each and every individual believes they can achieve. The truth is that we all have it in us. It’s how bad you want it!!
