The concept of Befriending Resistance

How to make friends with that voice that doesn't want to do it

The concept of Befriending Resistance

Why is there sometimes such a gap between desire and action? Why do people have goals that they find so hard to stick to? 

Maybe it’s eating healthier, going to the gym, learning a language. No matter how much we want something there is a voice that tells us not to. Sound familiar? According to our Resitance Therapist Virginia, rather than fighting with this voice and the resistance we have, we should befriend that resistance and use it as a guide to achieving our goals.

InBody measurements are an accurate body composition reading tool to help us see your quantifiable progress of your personal goals you and your trainer have defined together.

We will be able to track:
  • Analysis of body composition – muscle, body fat, water retention
  • Comparison analysis for upper/lower body and left/right side balance
  • Setting specific health goals
  • Tracking and comparing your progress with previous measurements

At Attika our priority is your health. We have met plenty of people with six packs that are totally miserable and unhealthy. Having a six pack can be a side effect of healthy habits and of course we can help you to get there, if you wish to do so. However, our priority is creating healthy mindset and habits towards becoming a better human, feeling good in your own skin, and having energy to keep going. The looks are a bonus 🙂
