About two years ago, I attended one of Phil Learney’s Seminars – ‘Advanced Fat Loss Protocols.’ For those who don’t know, Phil is arguably one of the best coaches in the world and amongst the most knowledgeable – he’s also one of the Directors of ‘Be An Athlete,’ too! In that seminar, he told us about one of the best clients, in terms of referrals, he ever had: a hairdresser. He said that once you change the life of a hairdresser, you can expect hundreds of referrals. Why? Well, they spend all day talking, and what better conversation topic than their amazing ‘fat loss transformation…?’
It was an awesome tip and something I immediately jumped on. Literally the next day, I went to get my hair cut at my local hairdressers and lucky for me, my hairdresser, Pete, happened to want to lose some weight. This was two years ago and now we are very good friends, and I can vouch for Phil’s advice… I have had more clients come to me in my local area than ever before. So, what’s this got to do with starting the gym?
I write this article having literally just got back from having my hair cut again. Every 4-6 weeks, Pete and I discuss various things, of which his continued fitness journey is clearly a point of discussion we both enjoy. He told me about how his wife has just started the gym, but is struggling as she’s tired all the time. So I asked Pete why she’s so tired?
