So today we conducted client assessments!
They had been scheduled to be complete a couple of weeks ago but due to the universe conspiring against us, busy schedules, bugs from our gorgeous kids, and life in general - we had to push that time out.
Well results weren’t exactly favourable and there was quite a bit of disappointment with the physical results (its just not happening quick enough) … but steady, steady .................. can’t get disheartened.
Everyone wants to see immediate results - Eat one salad, instantly loosing weight - I THINK NOT!
The fitness side of the assessment was very good – a big improvement in strength and cardio fitness and over all wellbeing by all participants. For example - one of the team walked for 30mins, then did the assessment and still beat the first assessment.
While They have been trying to eat well, bringing healthy salads etc to work most days for lunch - might have to think about factoring in their social food and drink habits (nudge, nudge, wink, wink – no names here)
On a personal level, the team have been taking their children and spending time outdoors together, choosing to walk around the school oval, while the kids play on the playground. The benefit is that everyone is being more active and spending more time together - and less on their devices!!! Wellbeing and Lifestyle are the winners at this stage!
To be completely honest, the assessment results today were probably the kick in the butt that we needed. It is tougher to be accountable to someone who YOU feel like you have let them down by not achieving your intended outcomes.
This 5 weeks will hopefully see more positive results.
