2013: An Inside-Out Process to Success

2013: An Inside-Out Process to Success

Perhaps the most profound need within the human experience is to align your outside world with the internal identity you silently carry. And on that pretense, please pardon this interruption… …Because the New Year’s goals and resolutions you feel so giddy about right now, I fear, may just be another set of predictable, annual mirages.   Which means ‘his’ blueprint will likely fall short of its promised capacity to transform you. And ‘her’ step-by-step-guide will most probably not become the sanctuary of salvation it so pledged to be. No cynicism or discord intended with those statements… Just an honest analysis from a man who has been in your shoes multiple times and learned of a different path. We strive, often unknowingly, to align what we see, become and obtain in the outside world, with the internal identity of ourselves that we keep. To change the outside, we must change the inside. Period. An important message I hope all Fitness Professionals heed in 2013… …Perhaps even more so, help their clients heed. Best to you in 2013 and beyond.   BG (aka Brian Grasso – www.FTRNation.com)

How To Avoid Getting “Burned Out”

How To Avoid Getting “Burned Out”

Have you ever heard of Pareto’s 80/20 Principle? If you haven’t, here it is in a nutshell. The 80/20 Rule means that in anything a few (20 percent) are vital and many(80 percent) are trivial. You can apply the 80/20 Rule to almost anything, especially time management. Today we live in a world that wants to “push button” and make money. (They didn’t have that in the eighteenth century) And as Americans we love to always push the “envelope a little further” by taking things to the extreme. So in that spirit…. An american internet marketer came up with the 95/5 rule. It basically means 95% is trivial and only 5% are vital. So basically delegate 95% and concentrate on the 5%. Bad advice if you ask me. I tried the 95/5 and it literally burned me out. For example for years I didn’t do anything “trivial” I didn’t… Step foot in a store. Wash my car. Cook. Personally handle a customer complaint. Train a client. All I did was delegate, market, and write checks which required working behind the computer. (That was my so called 5%) But soon I discovered that I wasn’t fulfilled. I was unhappy. OK, maybe […]

Bruce Lee is undoubtedly one of the greatest martial artist ever. He wasn’t born this way. He created this destiny by his daily actions. Below are 3 quotes by him that reflect what I want to share with you today. “Don’t fear failure. — Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.”  “Art calls for complete mastery of techniques, developed by reflection within the soul.” “The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.”   You may have heard the following poem by Marianne Williamson (Watch the video below) Not everyone may agree but my belief is that you have a responsibility to yourself, your society, and your legacy to be great. We all have the ability to be the best version of ourselves. I know this may seem like a weird topic considering you are here at super-trainer. More often than not the trainers that are here tend to want to be at the top of their game. But are you really? This question is meant to have run a diagnostic and reflect on your purpose and ti see if your actions are matching what your words say. No matter […]

So I’ve sent you 2 emails ( Why clients leave? and Marketing is DEAD ) in the last couple days on the killer $97 deal where you get an entire YEAR of email content.. (over 75 emails for 97 smackeroo’s) The whole idea to put my emails on the market wasn’t even mine. Sam Bakhtiar told me to do this because he says I’m one of the “best email writers out there” But even if you don’t pick up my product, I want you to know that one of the BEST ways to increase retention.. and overall guru status among your clients.. is to email out twice a week. That’s why I made you this short checklist on how to write a killer email, every single time: [font family=”Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif” size=”20″ color=”DE0202″ textshadow=”1″ alignment=”center” weight=”normal” style=”normal” lineheight=”110″]FIRST – Know what you stand for[/font] This goes without saying, but decide for yourself what your gym/fitness business is about. Even if you started off as a ‘bootcamp’ in a park or gymnastics facility with just dumbbells & sliders.. you still should know CLEARLY what you want your clients to believe For instance, with my list I preach that steady-state cardio sucks.. hill sprints […]

What’s up fitness family, I can’t BELIEVE how many of you replied back last week to my “exercises for your butt email” I guess, I struck a nerve. (I’m good at that) One thing is for sure…. We pretty much all can agree That a round, plump, healthy butts are in. (Like the boss lady’s on the left picture) Big wide receiver butts are out. (bottom right picture) “Skinny fat” butts are out. (I call that the “crack head butt” top right) A nice butt, as defined by my dictionary is….. (Yes I have my own dictionary) “The kind that you can set your drink on”     I like to make things happen. So…. I am soon coming out of “retirement” to teach “Booty Boot Camp” with the Alejandra “boss lady” Font for 4 weeks. Disclaimer: I am doing this as a public service. We need nicer butts in Chino Valley. And since, I am coming out of retirement for this. I make my own rules. That simple. Dedicated in getting your “butt” in shape. Sam, PS – Again, I am not taking anyone who throws me $67. I would have to interview you and make sure that we’re […]
