"Why Isn't This Working for Me?"


The Coach and Client Conversation Series



There are many misconceptions in fitness that hinder so many people from achieving their goals.


Our goal at Evolved is to give you the tools, strategies, and knowledge you need to be leaner, healthier, and happier.


In this second installment of our Coach and Client Conversation series, you get to peek in on scenarios that address and overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of many people’s fitness goals.


Today’s scenario deals with the idea: “Why isn't this working for me?”


Once you read through this brief conversation, you'll have a better understanding of the key things you need to address to achieve your fitness goals.


To set the stage for this scenario, the conversation opens with the coach and a new client meeting for the first time.




Coach: Thanks for meeting with me.

I know it takes some courage to walk into a gym for the first time

and I really appreciate that you took that leap.

So sincerely, thanks for coming in today.

Let’s start with the big picture.

What’s the goal?



Client: I’m so frustrated. I’m following

[keto, paleo, whole 30, sugar detox, low carb, carnivore, or etc.]

and the scale just won’t budge.

It worked for my friend, but not for me.

Maybe I'm too old or my metabolism is broken.



Coach: I see that you’re frustrated

and I think I can offer some hope and some help. 



Client: Please help. 

I’m at my wit’s end.



Coach: I’m happy to.

Let me start by reassuring you that your metabolism isn't broken

and that your age won't stop us from getting results. 

I've worked with plenty of people coming from similar circumstances

and pursuing similar goals, so I'm confident we can see results.

Now, as for using a particular approach for weight loss,

the single largest factor to consider is caloric intake.



Client: But I thought [this particular approach] was for weight loss.



Coach: Any approach can be used for weight loss or weight gain

depending on the number of calories eaten.

Imagine if I eat nothing but the "healthiest" imaginable food,

but I eat 6000 calories of it a day,

I'm still going to put on weight.

Does that make sense?


Client: Yeah, it does.



Coach: With our time together, we're going to take a different path.

Instead of adopting a program that we have to fit your life in,

we're going to create a program that fits your life. 



Client: That sounds way better.

With these other approaches,

I'm just basing my choices

on what worked for someone else I know.



Coach: And we're going to sidestep that previous frustration

by implementing customized strategies that are

both effective and fit your lifestyle.

That way your weight loss journey is easier and more enjoyable. 

Are you ready to get started? 


Client: Yes! 



Coach: Great.

Now that we're on the same page when it comes to weight loss,

let's start by really clarifying your goal and 

create some customized strategies for you.


Client: I'm excited.

Let's get this ball rolling.
