5 Traits Of Our Most Successful Fat Loss Clients

Successful Fat Loss

This may seem like a strange thing to admit but…

Not every single client that joins one of our coaching programmes will get amazing results when aim is successful fat loss.

I've been doing this for a long time (nearly 20 years!) and of course we strive for 100% success rate but that's just not reality.

Over the years, I've identified the exact characteristics that our most successful fat loss clients have in common.

(It also applies to ANY goal…)

Here they are:

1. They embrace the long game

I talk about the long game constantly but there's a big difference between nodding along and agreeing and actually embodying that mindset / perspective.

Our most successful clients know that the problem wasn't created overnight. So the results won't happen overnight either.

They treat the process as a lifestyle choice (and we deal in real life – not instagram influencer life!).

2. They communicate proactively instead of reactively

Proactive communication is when they anticipate a potential roadblock and ask their coach for advice and guidance on navigating the situation.

Reactive communication is saying nothing about it and then springing it on their coach after things went sideways.

Note: we still want to know when things go sideways but the best clients communicate before AND after the event.

3. They use frustration (and sometimes failure) as feedback and are open to doing things differently

This may sound obvious but some people are dead set on doing the same things they've always done and expect a different outcome.

The most successful clients view frustration/failure as an opportunity to learn and grow and are open to new solutions to common problems.

4. They view their dream outcome as a checkpoint, not a finish line

Some of the most unfortunate stories are when we have a client who “makes it” and reaches their ultimate goal… only to view it as an end point.

Then they default back to previous behaviours.

Successful clients view the dream outcome as a direction, not a destination or a finish line.

They want this for life. Not for a fleeting moment.

5. They lean in to the boring, simple, day-to-day difference makers

We recently had a client who mentioned to her coach that the daily habits that create her results were “too boring”.

I'm talking about walking, stress management, proper sleep hygiene, food quality, and resistance training.

Everyone wants to search for the magic bullet. We love to make things more complicated than they need to be.

It's easy to blame hormones or genetics or age or metabolism…

It's easy to search for the pill or the supplement or the missing piece that will make it rain results…

But the reality is… the “boring” daily habits will create 99% of the results you desire.

The best clients actually love that they don't need to overcomplicate things and they find ways to extract joy in that process.

I could keep going with more characteristics of successful clients but these are the top 5 that make the biggest difference.

If you're considering working with a coach, you're smart for doing so.

However, it's not a guarantee that you'll get to where you want to be.

If you can be honest with yourself and embrace those 5 characteristics above, you'll transform your body (and life).
