COACHING TERMS AND CONDITIONS
It keeps you committed. – Success in many of life’s most important endeavors begins with a commitment. We need to push our comfort zones in order to force out bodies to adapt, change, and grow leaner and stronger. I can’t think of anything more detrimental to someones chances of success than offering refunds. If you don’t follow through with the plan, there will not be a refund. Information has no value unless you act on it. I believe that if you pay for something you’re going to act and put in the work, whereas if you get it for free or have the option to ask for a refund, most people will either half-ass it or disregard it within a matter of days.
It stops the occasional dishonest person. – I have had people get me to write them a very detailed plan with no intention of paying for it. They thought they could demand a refund, threatening to write a bad review somewhere on the internet if I didn’t. I won’t allow anyone to think that they can put myself to be held to ransom in this way.
It protects my reputation. – I need to be known as a coach that holds people accountable because this is why many people hire a coach in the first place. If I get a reputation for not following through on my word, I steal this commitment tool from future customers and undermine my entire business.
Do not lie about or pretend that you’re following the plan when you’re not doing so. – If you have to stray away from what I designed for a day due to unexpected life events or circumstances, all you have to do is be honest and tell me what happened. We’ll always find a way to make up for a mistake or something completely unexpected. If you mess up for whatever reason there’s no need to keep it a secret, since you’ll be simply lying to yourself first and foremost.
Do not lie and claim that the program is not working if you’re half-assing it or if you barely even follow it. – Yes, there are times where alterations need to made to every program or plan, but doing so just because is not an honest reason. There’s a huge difference between following a plan for a month and realizing that it doesn’t really fit your schedule due to a new work schedule for example or that your goals might have changed and adjustments or changes are necessary, and between half-assing and/or skipping workouts or not eating accordingly and claiming that the plan is completely wrong. Be honest.
NO HALF-ASSING IT
When you commit yourself to something, do it properly or don’t do it at all. – The results that you’ll get will only resemble the level of your commitment. If you half-ass it, you can’t expect to reach your utmost potential. I will provide the guidance to become 1% better every single day, but it’s up to you to prove to yourself what you’re capable of.
