are your workouts doing more harm than good?

Now that I have your attention! Don’t get me wrong, I love a workout, I am the Honolulu Personal Trainer after all!

I love moving my body, getting stronger, learning new skills and I love GIVING ALL OF THESE FEELS TO THE LADIES THAT I SERVE.

So, to be clear, this is not about why you shouldn’t work out. I’m not going to repeat what you already know – exercise is good for you. But as I’ve now been working with clients for over two decades to help them achieve their goals, I have come to see a lot of ways people are sabotaging their healthy efforts through their approach to working out.

Do any of these resonate with you? Not too long ago, I personally, would have checked ALL of these boxes!

#1. You feel like you know what to do, it’s just your self control that gets in the way of your weight loss efforts.

#2. You rely on exercise as weight control. Exercise prevents weight gain. You need exercise to lose weight.

#3. You feel strongly that for the amount of exercise you do and how healthy you eat, these efforts do not move the scale or change your body the way you think it should.

#4. You don’t like working out but you do it anyway because you know it’s supposed to be good for you and if you want your body to look a certain way, it’s the painful road you must suffer through.

One of my mentors Dr. Jade Teta is teaching me female metabolism and hormones and how THAT plays a HUGE role in weight management or weight resistance.

During a recent lecture, he said: “If you are doing everything right and still not achieving your weight loss goals, then you are NOT doing everything right.”

Yes, a hard pill to swallow, I know. For myself, I spent over 10 years doing what I thought was right only to be left frustrated, burned out, exhausted, gaining weight and miserable.

Sister, you are not alone! As a female metabolism specialist, I see a LOT of healthy and unhealthy habits in various forms as I work with clients to find the solutions to get them to their goals. And believe me when I say, sometimes your workouts are doing more harm than good.

What do you think? Have you ever found yourself thinking your results should be more reflective of your effort?
