What do you think of when someone says sexy flat tummy versus strong abdomen? The usual response I get is a sexy flat tummy is what I want. A strong abdomen isn’t sexy. It’s practical. Most of us aren’t practical when it comes to health, wellness, fitness, and weight loss. All we want are flat stomach exercises. With each WOD you’ll definitely have a flatter tummy, all in due time. What is really crazy to me is when people look for an exercise for flat tummy in 7 days.
The scientific piece of it is that we all have an abdomen. The real truth about it all is that it’s just not sexy to talk about. There’s no emotional response. It’s simply the truth. The fitness industry likes to sell bullshit claims that a flat stomach and six pack abs will lead to health and happiness. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
Why Sexy Flat Tummy Versus Strong Abdomen?
When’s the last time you’ve heard someone say they wanted a strong abdomen? Never. I’ve worked with a lot of people in my career and it’s always been the same story. It’s because we are fed the same shit. We try to change in the same way. Using the same tools. Going on and off diets constantly, in turn ruining your internal chemistry (lucky for you not permanently). Talking about sexy flat tummy versus strong abdomen is something I do every day with my clients. Breaking down the barriers of the bullshit marketing is also what I do. Shutting down all the claims about how to get a flat tummy in 1 day.
Forget about the sexy flat tummy. Because as soon as you really are ok with not having a sexy flat tummy it will come even faster. Vanity advertising is what’s working best in society. I’m here to cut the fat out of that. (No pun and Dr. Seuss rhyming). The selling point is our extra fat on our bodies from either overeating, medication side effects, laziness, sudden illness, surgery, postpartum or any other reason that I’ve heard before. Let’s face it, sex sells.
It’s the emotional response to sex that we give any attention to it. If you’re scrolling through Facebook, Instagram or any other social media platform and a picture of a beautiful woman or man show up wearing next to nothing you’re going to Slow Your Scroll for a split second. We’ve all been there before because I just saw it the other day. The word SEX was in very large text. Then it caught my attention. Therefore I bring that to you.
Sexy Flat Tummy versus strong abdomen is oversold. It’s that split second emotional response of guilt or anger or jealousy that we feel when we see those pictures. Even the word sex can trigger a flood of emotions. It’s the physiological response that drives you crazy.
Can you imagine if you’d have that same response to working out? Or bettering your mental health? Or better yet… Being excited about a stronger abdomen?
Sex sells. It’s no secret. However, marketing for any product or service only works when enough people have tried the product, sexy people endorse the product and when there’s money to be made.
Say it out loud without an emotional response like “getting turned on”. Sex sex sex. My guess is either you’re weirded out by this or you’re completely comfortable. There isn’t much in between. The reason we are drawn to the sexy flat tummy is we want what we can’t have.
Most of us will never experience what it feels like to look and feel sexy. Because of that is the very reason that I have to continue to help people change. It’s time to forget about the sexy flat tummy and start moving your mindset to a stronger abdomen. Or don’t, but either way, the sexy part about your stomach isn’t your tummy. It’s the work it takes to change.
Actually, the work isn’t even the sexy part. It’s the reward you’ll have when faced with temptation while at work and those cookies, cake and pies are looking amazing. Or those chips at the supermarket that have been staring you in the face for weeks and you’ve passed by one last time.
With a different mindset, you’ll be able to indulge and refrain with ease. Therefore, the consistency you’re at right now brings you to a deeper level of dedication. You’ll no longer think about having or wanting anything. That my friend is the person, the place and thing to be. Therefore you’re now on your way to a stronger abdomen.
It’s time to forget about the conversation of sexy flat tummy versus strong abdomen and simply talk about what it will take to break your current patterns and create new ones. You’re now ready to go and get today’s WOD done. Your consistency is impressive and because of that you’re still here and my intuition tells me that you’re happy as a clam.
