Stop Making Excuses, Start Getting Results

April 13, 2015

About the Author: Eric Bach Performance

 First, a story.

Then, a call to action.

It’s all about getting past excuses.

As a coach, I’ve heard them all. 

Hell, I’m made most of them myself…and still have the occasional excuse.


Excuses are like that childhood stuffed animal that’s still stuffed in the corner of your closet.

Tweet: Excuses are like that childhood stuffed animal that’s still stuffed in the corner of your closet. End the today: Excuses are like that childhood stuffed animal that’s still stuffed in the corner of your closet.:

They’re soft, warm, and give you feelings of security.

Problem is, excuses run rampant. One leads to another. Excuses snowball into behavioral change (or lack thereof) that keep you from becoming your best self. 

“I’m too busy to train.”

“I run, so I don’t need to train legs.”

“I just want to get big, not strong.” (And vice-versa)

“I’m traveling too much to get my workouts in.”

“I can’t eat that much.”

“I’ll do it later.”

“When you stop finding excuses, you’ll find results”
— (Honestly, I wish I remembered who said that)

We all have a limited time on this earth. It may end in 48 hours or 48 years, yet we still make excuses to not own the day.

When there is a will, there is a way. Every day presents an opportunity to get better. It’s up to you to take the chance and make things happen.

Take my online client Brad. Brad’s a cool dude in his mid-20’s, played sports in high school that he still enjoys recreationally today. He drinks beer on weekends, and works his ass off during the week.

These days, Brad is a new homeowner and slammed busy as an accountant during tax season.

I mean BUSY. As an accountant, he’s knocking out 12-16 hour days 5-6 days per week for over the last 6-8 weeks.

The cool thing is, he’s absolutely smashing his workouts without fail and getting great results, despite having huge time obligations elsewhere.

Hammering. (The workouts, not his liver)

Thing is, Brad is super busy and finds time to get the important things done without fail every time, without excuses. 

Brad has never complained to me with…

“ I don’t have time.”

“I’m too tired.”

Brad get’s it. Bullshit excuses are just that, bullshit.

You, me, Brad, Richard Branson, and everyone else on the planet have the same 24 hours in the day.

Instead of giving up and making excuses, make changes.

What will you cut out of your day to make time for training?

What can be downsized?

Sometimes it’s tough to plan things—that’s where a coach comes in.

In the case of Brad, we simplified his training:

  • Instead of five training sessions a week, we moved to three
  • Instead of 70-minute sessions we adopted a minimalist plan for 45-minute workouts, with shorter rest periods and a focus on essential, multi-joint movements
  • Brad was short on time after work, so we got up at 5:00am instead of training after work
  • We hacked his morning by having him drink warm liquids and dress is layers to speed up his warm-up.

He got up, got it done, then owned the day.

No excuses! Just pure determination to get better every single day.

When things get dicey and you don’t know where to turn, a coach is there to provide the training and diet plan needed to get you strong, shredded, and athletic no matter your time restrictions.

Brad’s just one of hundreds of my coaching clients I’ve had the opportunity to work with. Like so many other people who have gone through the program, has achieved results beyond what he and they thought possible.

They’re now, they have high-performance bodies with the confidence and happiness that comes with self-investment and improvement.

I could not be prouder to have coached them and call them friends.

Now is your Chance at a Limited Time Discount

Now, I’m proud to announce that I want to help the next group—and I have just two spots available to fill in the next week at a discount, giving you   one month of training free with a six-month package.


To thank you for your continued sharing and support of the Bach Performance mission. 

Here’s what Brad has to say about Bach Performance Coaching:

“Since working with Eric I’ve become my strongest mentally and physically of my life, despite having a crazy schedule. I’ve shredded body fat and set tons of pr’s in the gym while simultaneously fixing past injuries. I’m now nearly pain free, more athletic, and have a better body than when I was consistently competing in sports! If you’re looking to improve your body, confidence, and athleticism I am 100% positive that Eric will help you reach your goals.”

Just this past week, I’ve revamped my online coaching program with a more streamlined process. It’s filled with personalized nutrition coaching, specialized online coaching programs, and weekly calls to completely improve the coaching experience for my clients.

Every interaction is easier, more effective, and more beneficial, which is allowing the additional coaches spaces.

I would love for you to be one of them.

With that in mind, I want you to ask yourself…

Are you the kind of person that will benefit from world-class coaching?

Bevan and Raven

If any of these apply to you, then we would be a good fit:

  • You lack motivation and accountability, leaving to skipping training sessions and your diet.
  • You have nagging injuries that just won’t go away, preventing you from training hard.
  • You have information overload. Quite simply, you don’t know where to begin with so much information out there.
  • You can’t find a coach in your area (luckily, training virtually takes that out of the equation…and saves you money)
  • You want a body that looks and performs like an athlete 

If any of these apply to you, then you should consider applying for Bach Performance Coaching.

Let me take the confusion out of your training. Let me take the reins and provide you with world-class coaching. Let me hold you accountable to dismiss excuses and seize the day.

Consider the cost of putting off your health, building the body you want, and building the life you want.

Is it worth putting off, and questioning your direction, training, and health?

Invest in your health and performance by allowing me to use my experience, my knowledge, and my determination to help build your ideal body and ideal life. 

Now, it’s your opportunity.  Apply for Online Coaching and get a limited time,  1 month discount on all six-month training programs.

You in? I hope so.


This is a time sensitive offer. It expires when the final available spots are taken or at midnight on September 21, 2015…whichever comes first.
