What’s holding you back from reaching your goals? As personal trainers, we are here to help you be successful in the most efficient ways possible. Here is what we have found over the years that has worked well with our clientele and ourselves…
Try to set both long and short term goals. Have an end goal in mind but make sure you focus on the short term goals and try to accomplish them along the way. Have specific dates that you attempt to reach them by, which allows you to see progress and keeps you motivated to keep working hard. Either keep a manual journal or try using an app such as myfitnesspal to help you track your progress.
Make sure you have accountability along the way. It will make your life a lot easier if you have a friend to workout with or a trainer to keep you accountable as you try to reach your goals. We cant stress this enough! This way if you have an excuse, it is a lot harder to cancel when someone else is relying on you being there to workout.
Find a balanced workout routine. Males and females need to realize the importance of weight training. You simply wont see the same benefits by just doing cardiovascular workouts. Each body will have different needs so if you are unsure, have a trainer set up a customized program for you.
Make sure you have a well balanced nutrition plan to follow. Fad diets do not work long term. They will not last and you will end up frustrated. Meet with a qualified individual to setup your specific needs and make sure you keep your goals realistic to your lifestyle.
If you just cant get motivated or do not know where to start, contact us for a complimentary assessment. We are here to help you and would be happy to get you on your way to your ideal body. Happy Lifting and Healthy Eating!
