In this post I discuss who shouldn’t work with me and why.
You want a quick fix
Whilst exercise can in some cases reduce pain quickly, most of the time it takes a little time.
The goal is to get you stronger so you have fewer aches and pains in the long term. It’s not to have you walking out of your first session without pain.
It takes around 2 weeks for your central nervous system to improve its ability to contract muscles and a further 8 weeks to change the structure of those muscles.
If you want a quick fix this isn’t for you.
You want a diagnosis
I’m not a medical professional so I can’t give you a name for the cause of your pain or discomfort.
Hopefully you’ve already seen somebody who can. If you haven’t and you want your issue investigated further, I recommend visiting a Doctor.
I send clients to London Sports Orthopaedics when I need more information on a person’s particular situation.
You want to see other health care professionals
I’m not the jealous type, honest. If however you want to get the most out of this approach it’s best to commit to it.
If you still think there’s more to gain from an approach you’re currently using, then by all means continue. When that has taken you as far as you think it can, give me a call.
You’re unwilling to invest in yourself
This process isn’t available on health insurance programmes. As such you’ll be paying directly for it.
This creates a different type of commitment. One that usually produces outstanding results.
You’re not open to the possibility of change
I don’t want to sound airy fairy here but It helps if you’re open to the possibility your situation might change.
Whilst your body will adapt if it’s given the right stimulus, it makes the journey more pleasurable for the both of us if you want that to happen.
