Besides receiving heartfelt testimonials and words of grateful thanks from my clients for helping them achieve their fitness goals and playing a pivotal role in their lives, I think the next best accolade is getting a surprise from time to time. Yes, one of my female clients made my day by giving me two buns which she baked herself after the training session. 
 
It is really the thought that counts. A simple gesture in itself, it certainly goes a long way to show that when you shower kindness to others, goodness returns itself in another form. What goes around comes around. Eating the two buns (the one on the top is the tuna bun and the one at the bottom is the cheese bun with rosemary), a sense of love and gratification surrounds me. Thank you. I will continue to touch more lives in whatever little ways I can J

"Only 8?"  was what my client exclaimed when I started counting the number of reps in the set.

"No, already 8." I replied. "Only 7 more to go."

As a strong proponent that our mind is our greatest enemy, I believe strongly that we can achieve almost anything as long as we shut out the little voice in our head that tells us otherwise.

Like in this case, had the client tweaked his mind to think “wow, I’ve finished 8 reps and there are only 7 to go” instead of thinking “oh no, I’ve only done 8 reps and there are another 7 to go”, the benefits will be double-fold.

First, he will be able to push himself harder as he knows he has already crossed the midway mark and is fast reaching the destination. Secondly, it sends a positive signal from his brain to his body which needs extra motivation at this crucial stage to complete the required number of reps.

Mental resilience is the key to success in anything we do. If we persevere, we will be able to savour the fruits of our labour with pride. That’s why in all of my trainings, I harp so much on the importance of training the mind as well.
