how I'm building health

Health coach confession: I haven't actually been to the gym in 5 years.

Not that there's anything wrong with the gym- but after all these years, I finally admitted to myself that it's not my thing

I find it too repetitive, and I end up zoning out. Then my mind starts wandering and next thing I know I end my workout early, then just head home.

My current solution to that: Find fun ways to move

Right now, that fun thing is slacklining.

It's fun and challenging. I'm not very good at it 😂.

But I love that every time I get on the line it's just a little bit different.

I just set a timer for 30 minutes, play a bit of music and then mess around on the slackline.

It's my current favorite way to move more during my day.

updates on The FitforLife System

I had a big breakthrough with my course flow this week.

I was reviewing how I work with my current clients. I broke down my coaching process into a step-by-step flowchart that helps me determine my next step.

When I coach, there are 3 key points that need to work well

  • You need to be able to keep track of your progress
  • You need to be able to find a supportive buddy or group
  • You need to have a practice that is in the 'goldilocks zone' (not too easy - not too hard)

If any one of these is weak, then consistently building your health is going to be challenging.

my favorite health things this week

How much is your health worth?

A friend shared with me this amazing paragraph from the book "Social" by Matt Lieberman

There are all these things that are difficult to measure, but may be worth more to your overall life than your job and your salary. And yet it seems so many people make all sorts of sacrifices to their health (and relationships) just for the sake of a job.

How much is your health worth to you?

Thanks for reading.

Be well this weekend,

Javier
