    has anyone ever gotten to the point where you kick your ASS in the gym... and then you realize you're not really getting anywhere, you see results but the vision is fleeting. i feel like i might as well give up... it had been a dream my GOAL for the longest while to compete. who the fuck was i kidding!!! that shits harder than military survival camp!!!

    I can whip anybody into fine form as a trainer, but myself is what I'm no good with!

    I think the problem is that it can be easier to push someone and help them achieve YOUR goals for them, but when it comes to oneself, you may be not as aware of your capabilities; and therefore you don't see the results you expect for yourself. Ya know?

    Maybe you've reached your plateau. Why don't you try to get a personal trainer and see if they can push you to get the results you want. It might help when someone else help you with your journey instead of trying to do it all by yourself.

    what kind of message is this coming from a PT? You should know the answer and resolution to your own question/problem otherwise you shouldn't be a PT. Not trying to be harsh, but don't lead others where you are blindly traveling.

    It's all in your head.

    As a trainer - you should know that maybe it's time to switch it up... Change something.... Maybe in your routine, maybe your diet. Fine a new workout partner -or a new program...

    Find something that can re-motivate you...

    You can do it. Never surrender.

    So, basically, you're just admitting that you have no clue

    This is the making or breaking point in your life! When you reach this fork in the road, you take the hard way and you keep going as if you still had the glimmer in your eye. Just cause you don't have it now, doesn't mean you won't get it back. You may need a break from all this, but not for too long. Just get back to doing it; cause the worst that can happen is that you stop doing this and you gain a lot of weight, get lazy, miss friends, and wonder what you can do to get yourself in shape... wait, so even if you workout at home, you still have got stay focused!
