I mentioned in these blogs before the myriad of reasons that people might give for leaving us.

Summer purely logistical

Something has changed in their life meaning it’s no longer going to work for them.

Moving house, a change to their work arrangement, etc.

Some reasons are, perhaps, more questionable.

And questioning is what I’m here for.

People sometimes leave because they don’t feel they’re getting their money’s worth.

Which I get

No one likes to feel like they’re wasting money.

They usually mean they’re not doing as many Sessions as they like.

And, when that’s the case, we’ve got three basic options.

1. Stop

2. Do more Sessions

3. Become ok with doing less Sessions than we might ideally like because the results justify it

Because, ultimately, that’s what this is all about.

It’s about the results we get.

The things we do are largely means to an end to that.

If I could give people a body that they like the look and feel of without having to do any workouts or make any changes to their food……….

I could charge 10 times as much.

And that’s a powerful realization.

It becomes less about what percentage of the theoretical maximum value we are extracting from something……….

Because no one ever gets their full money’s worth from anything, ever……….

And it becomes more about doing enough to make forward progress.

Becoming ok with knowingly suboptimal and done.

Because that will always get us better results than theoretically better and not done (www.myrise.co.uk/apply if you’re ready for that and actual sustained forward progress like our guys get).

Much love,
