I want to try a bit of a different direction with this blog going forward, so I thought I’d do a quick post about where I want to go with it.
I’m going to start writing regular blog posts about my progress, both personal and career, with an aim to keep them as real as possible. This is going to mean being relatively transparent, which is no doubt going to be a little hard to do, at least to begin with, but I think will be worth it.
Well, I think a big problem in the fitness industry, especially now with social media, is that we often only get to see the highlights from peoples day/week, and I’m as guilty of this as anyone. I always put up posts of my training or food, where I’ve strategically picked an angle to make things look as impressive as possible. I think that using social media to display and promote your progress and achievements is great, I just think that it should probably be balanced out by an occasional lack of progress. Because that’s real life.
So, if I was meant to have a session and I skipped it, I’ll write about it along with a reason, even if that reason is that I couldn’t be stuffed.
If I’ve had a bad week with my nutrition, I’ll let you know about it.
If I was meant to write a blog post and I left it until the very last minute, I won’t need to tell you about it, as it’ll be evident in the low quality of the piece you’re reading.
If everything is going amazingly then you’ll read about that too.
Hopefully this will read as a more realistic look into someones journey in the fitness industry.
