I came to train with Mikhail because I had landed a position in my job where I was struggling to find time to workout and when I did it had no structure and I wasn’t seeing results. I was tired of having to guess what to do next and at the time I stuck with what I knew best that was functional and cardio. I wanted to build muscle but, as a person that naturally looses weight, I wasn’t doing the right training for my goal.
Also having a done ballet for around 12 years I’ve never felt comfortable in the weights room because I didn’t know what was what and where to start. But most importantly I thought I was going to get bulky (which is a shared misconception amongst almost every women new to the gym)
During my first week I struggled with knowing exactly what I had to do and my sessions sometimes would go up to 2 hours! But once I become more knowledgeable of the machines and exercises I started to face my own mental limitations. I remember texting Mikhail around 2-3 times saying I was getting bulky and too big! I was more mentally scared of the idea of not being “that skinny girl” that I’ve always been stereotyped as! But week after week, check in session after check in session I started to feel what it it feels like to be strong. But most importantly to overcome fear, self doubt, anxiety about the unknown. To step out of your comfort zone and trust yourself that you can do anything that you set your mind to. Even if that is as simple as deadlifting your own weight or bench pressing a small child. It takes focus, courage and dedication and these are definitely things I’ve learnt with the online coaching I’ve taken up with Mikhail.
I’ve went from not enjoying weights at all to a weightlifting fan. Obviously physically my hard work shows but it is the mental gains that have made the biggest difference in my life.
Thank you Mikhail for your dedication and patience!
