Body transformation

Today I want to talk about body transformation and the approach that I follow when helping a client with a body transformation goal.

I started my career as certified Personal Trainer with basic nutrition education that I learned as part of my personal training qualification. So when ever I helped a client with body transformation  I would focus on training a client  and just talk with a client casually about making healthy food choice when we were busy training. 

I never really followed up if the client was making healthy eating choices on a regular basis or not. I had no structure of supporting clients  and keeping them accountable when I came to their eating habits. 
All I did was keeping clients accountable when it came to their training appointments and supported them while we were training.

When it came to assessments which is what I do to track  progress some clients were progressing towards their body transformation goals other were not.

So I knew this method of helping clients transform their bodies was not the best approach because of its success rate.

I started investigating why some clients are not getting the results.

What I discovered is that lack of support when it came to nutrition, stress , not enough accountability and lack of rest and recovery was what was lacking from my body transformation approach.

This is how I discovered the 100 % method.

What is a 100 % method?

A 100 %  method is an integrated system of 5 disciplines which are:

20 % what we put in our bodies ( food and drinks)
20 % movement ( physical activities and exercise)
20 % stress management 
20 % accountability and support 
20 % rest and recovery 

I will be explaining the 100 % method in more details in future blogs
