Pride Comes Before the Fall

Proverbs 16:18 says "Pride goes before destruction and an arrogant spirit before the fall."  

The other day I was talking to a guy who was coming off a bad injury.  

It was immediately apparent that he was pretty arrogant and thought he knew more than me.  Even though he has never worked a day in the fitness field....

I was attempting to share my best practices for regaining strength after being hurt in a way that would prevent further injuries.

He shot down every suggestion I made with his "bro-science." 

The sad reality is his pride is going to cause him to fall / fail because he is on a path to reinjure himself.

One thing I have learned from my 29 years as a fitness professional is that there is so much more to learn.  You have never "arrived." 

There are countless people who can teach me something.

As a coach I "buy what I sell."

Meaning I sell coaching but I also invest in it too.

I have a business / life coach to keep me moving forward and focused on my big rocks as well as maintaining life balance.

In 2019 I decided to do a fitness show and I even hired another fitness trainer to coach me. My wife thought I was nuts for paying another trainer but I knew if I wanted to go to the next level with my own fitness I needed the expertise of a coach who could elevate me. I found someone who had done what I wanted to do and could guide and support me every step of the way.

And guess what? 

I came into that competition in the leanest and BEST shape of my life!

An added bonus was I learned some great tactics from that coach that I use to help my own clients.

It just proves that even...COACHES NEED COACHES.

How about you?

Are you hanging onto a fitness belief system that is getting you nowhere?
