Having close to 150 members gives you great experience into the thinking of most when it comes to their fitness journeys.
When I hear of the challenges people face, I love to give great tips that I know will ensure results.
So here are 5 ways you can do this:
1. Don’t think, just do.
“If it’s your time, and you’re sitting on the fence — you want to do it, you’re thinking of doing it, you’re not sure if you should do it — jump off that fence!
Remember, tomorrow never comes.
2. Appreciate your body for what it can do.
Unfortunately, I hear so much more from people about what they can’t do or what someone else can do.“Take pleasure in movement. Take pride in what you can do.”
This deep appreciation for physical health is what allows you to maintain your fitness over time! Forget the “lose 30lbs in a week” mainstream narrative. Just discover what your body can do.
3. Imagine your future self.
We all have a specific motivation for wanting to lose fat and get fit. Keep that in mind. Whether it’s getting strong enough to play sports with your kids or looking great on your wedding day.
That last one is what helped 32-year-old Melissa lose 55 pounds.
“The whole time, I had this image of myself on my wedding day in my head,” Melissa says. “Walking tall, feeling amazing — feeling statuesque instead of soft around the edges.”
Don’t just think about how you want to look; think about how you want to feel.
“It’s not just about what you see in the mirror, it’s what you feel inside!”
How do you want to feel? Confident? Capable of handling anything that life throws at you? Free to try new things? Comfortable in your own skin?
Imagine what it will be like to live as your future self. How does that guy or girl look, how do they feel, and what do they do? How could you start living a little more like that person today?
4. Enjoy your food.
Most of our clients come to realize that they’ve been eating mindlessly — packing in calories without really tasting the food — for a long time.
What happens when we really take the time to enjoy our food? We usually slow down. We become more conscious of our choices, and we choose better foods for our bodies.
5. Pay attention to your Surroundings.
When clients recognize how their surroundings might be creating unhealthy habits they usually have an “ah-ha” moment. They start seeing the relationship between what’s around them and who they think they are. This helps them self-stories self stories and start seeing real results.
“What do I really care about? What gives me joy? How can I get more of that?”
What could you remove from your environment or add to your environment to create a healthier life for yourself?
Maybe you need a challenge??
Give yourself a challenge and RISE to it!
You can do this.
