Here’s why you have a coach at Maximize Potential:
There’s too much out there. You know you can’t do everything. A lot of it looks—or sounds—good.
I’m talking about diet plans, supplements, recovery protocols, or workout programs.
But you can’t do it all, and trying to do too much will actually set you back. I’m guilty!
Everyone knows about overtraining, and we’re all scared of getting injured. But most don’t realize there’s an optimal amount of training to do, just as there’s an optimal amount of food to eat.
Too little, and your progress will be slow. But doing too many workouts has the exact same effect.
We choose specifically programmed workouts for our group training because it’s a great balance: It’s not too little and it’s not too much (even though it feels like it is sometimes). But even as hard as Maximize Potential workouts are, many people are tempted to do more: to add a little “recovery run,” or even to do multiple workouts in a day. This is NOT always the path to success.
More is NOT always better. Better is better.
You have a coach. That coach is your filter.
Your coaches are here to tell you what’s optimal, not what’s minimal.
At Maximize Potential, our coaches want to talk to you every quarter. One-on-one, in person during our goal reviews. We want to put you on the InBody, ask about your current goals, review your progress, and then give you the best possible prescription to help you achieve them.
Reach out to your coach to book the goal review. It’s part of your membership!
What we DON’T want is for you to have to guess.
We don’t want you to try fad diets like keto, paleo, or carnivore just because you saw someone doing them on social media. We don’t want you to drink a gallon of milk a day just because you saw it online (truth: this was the GOMAD diet). We don’t even want you to do what everyone else in the gym is doing, because their program is theirs. They might have restrictions or at a different training level. It’s not yours. Group training, tailored individually: That’s what our coaches do at Maximize Potential.
You have a coach.
They’re your filter.
Next time you see a workout online and think, “Oooooh, that looks spicy! Gotta try it after 10 am group tomorrow!” ask your coach if it fits your goals. Take it from the coaches that have been doing it for years and have learned the hard way!
