7 Maslow’s Levels of Human Needs` Self-ActualizationPersonalGoals – Help othersEsteemSelf-respectRespect from OthersAcceptanceAffection – Approval - BelongingAbraham Maslow developed a method of how human needs are met. He ranked human needs from most basic needs to higher needs.The most basic needs, one’s physical needs for water, food, shelter and rest are at the bottom.This is followed by the basic need for safety, such as freedom from danger or financial security.These two levels must at least be partially filled before a person has the energy to pursue the three higher levels, which are more psychological than physical.The third level is the acceptance level and includes feelings of affection, approval and belonging.This level is followed by the Self-esteem level, which includes feelings of self-respect and respect for others.Finally, one reaches the self-actualization level, which is a personal level with personal goals.SafetyFreedom from danger – financial securityPhysicalWater – Food – Shelter - Rest
8 Relating Physical Training to Maslow’s Hierarchy Physiological - You don’t train so it’s not. Shame on you!Safety – It is something you feel like you have to do to be healthy and look good.Love & Belonging – It is something you look forward to.Esteem – It becomes a part of who you areSelf-Actualization - It becomes what you do professionally on some level.Maslow’s Hierarchy can be used in most every situation. This example has to do with training and working out.Starting at the bottom with the physiological. You might say, “You don’t train so it’s not.”Shame on you! Even if exercise does not fulfill the higher levels for you. Exercise ought to be a necessity. The body must move around to function well. The better it can move the better it can function. Who are my people in here who make it a habit to work out? This can be going to the gym or belonging to some activity that requires conditioning and working out the body. How do you feel when you work out? How do you feel when you deprive your body of a workout?Safety – You begin to get the mindset that exercising is something you have to do to be healthy and look good. You now realize that exercising is beneficial. Your mindset might be something like, “ I must exercise” or “I don’t want to, but I have to.” You have not yet reached the point where you are excited about it. However, you do recognize the benefits of exercise which is with proper exercise, you are ensuring yourself of your health, which helps to secure many other things in life. It has become a matter of safety. Something you must do to ensure your safety.Love and Belonging – You start looking forward to exercising or training everyday and if you don’t train every day, then you are looking forward to your next workout. Exercise is no longer something that you do but something you want to do. THIS IS WHERE THE REAL FUN BEGINS. You start getting a sense of belonging with others who share your passion. Training is now becoming a part of your lifestyle, something you do regularly, and something that you love to do. Exercise is no longer a chore.Esteem – Love and belonging lead right into esteem. Exercising or training is now a part of who you are. You identified with it. Training brings you a sense of accomplishment, self-esteem and makes you more confident. At this point, the thought of not being able to work out leads to depression.Finally, Self-Actualization happens for those people whose profession ends up being in the fitness area. You become a personal trainer, a coach, a performing strongman, an educator of health and physical fitness, etc. It is part of who you are, what you believe, what you stand for.
