Establishing a plan is the fundamental key to success with anything; and that doesn’t exclude reaching optimal health & Fitness Goals. Success doesn’t just happen by chance. It’s built one bolt at a time.
First, establish what success is, and what it looks like. It may be trying to fit into your high school letterman’s jacket again for your 10 year reunion; or wanting to be confident in a bathing suit for your honeymoon or family vacation.
Once you’re able to look up and clarify the image of success that seems to be sitting high up on a pedestal, we can start building that track to get you up the mountain to that “pedestal”.
Step two is laying a solid foundation so your track doesn’t crumble under pressure when temptations and self-doubt make an appearance—because they will. However, as long as you’re prepared and have built your foundation on solid truth, you’ll be able to withstand the storm and keep pushing.
24 “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. 26 But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. 27 When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”
When I say build on a solid foundation, what I mean is to educate yourself in tried & true principles of health & fitness instead of falling into one of the many “money-scheme” traps set by greedy con-artist that only care about feeding their wallets instead of your health & your future.
A good rule of thumb to use for avoiding these scams is to involve your primary care doctor in your journey toward better health. They have the knowledge to make accurate decisions, with no bias based on financial benefits. Your doctor has no reason to reject one “diet” over another because he/she gets no financial gain whatsoever from your choice in fitness “coaching”.
Nothing we teach or coach is “magical”, or “instant”. It’s simply just the facts and principles of healthy eating balanced with appropriate physical activity. But you know what? It works... it’s worked for me, and it’s working for our clients. When you slowly make gradual changes to your habits, permanent results follow. It’s not what we teach, but how we teach it that makes our programs a success.
