Most people are not in good enough health to even go through a workout session. People need to take a look at what needs to be fixed first. Is it their biceps or their job stress? A great chest or a failed marriage? Which one do you think someone needs to work on to give them more longevity and happiness?
I had experienced some clients that come to me with complaints on a weekly basis about the same aches and pains. I would fix them with my corrective exercise, but when they repeated the same event that caused the stress in their body, they would come back to me in pain again. Let me give you an example. when a client says to me, I’m looking to loose 5-10 pounds and you have their stress history report in front of you with a husband that abuses them daily… Which would be more helpful wellness advice, to prescribe exercise and diet or to tell her to join a women’s support group to help her leave her husband?
Those clients that embrace the later advice go on to thrive in their new lives, and those who don’t, choose to complain everyday. There are two kinds of people who need change in their lives. Ones who don’t know how to change and those who are afraid to change.
