7 Obstacles To Overcome For Fitness Success

Here are the Top 7 obstacles to overcome daily!

1. Hitting The Snooze Button– Yes the snooze button in the morning can be your big obstacle. By waking up 10 minutes early each day this can be the deciding factor to give you enough time to eat your balanced out breakfast! No more drive throughs or sugar packed breakfast bars.

2. Exercising In The Morning- Studies show a 90% success rate for people that exercise in the early morning before work. If life gets in the way then you must make it a priority no matter what to exercise first thing in the morning. The old saying ” Early bird gets the worm”:)

3. Pack Your Lunch– If you try to wing your lunch you will make bad choices that are not on your program. Co-workers and friends can easily influence you with your guard down. Take the extra time each night to prepare your lunch for the following day. Fail to plan to plan to fail:)

4. Starting A Fitness Program– Yes this is short term pain with long term gains. Everybody struggles in the beginning. Nobody is bullet proof from first time soreness. I truly believe this is mentally tough for exercisers trying to start up again with their fitness program. Nobody likes to be sore or struggling to breath. Our bodies are a creature of habit and will adjust within 2 weeks. Just get through the beginning stages:))

5. Switching Your Food Choices– Yes we love salt, sugar and fat! Yes the temptations are killers but are you willing to fight through the temptations to get where you want to be? Our bodies are constantly trying to reward and comfort. Set your mindset for cruise control and fight off the battles of temptations! Short term pain for long term gain!!

6. Cooking And Grocery Shopping– Yes cooking is a short term pain with long term gains. I know many claim they have limited culinary skills. Another short term pain is cleaning the kitchen and grocery shopping. To look and feel your best I can guarantee you that eating out for your meals will produce NO results of lean sculpted body. Take the extra time and experiment with herbs and spices. Also I highly recommend the cookbook Eating For Life and TasteofMai.blogspot.com for creative healthy recipes.

7. Fear- Yes FEAR is our #1 killer of long term gains in fitness! Many fear the fact of failure in fitness. It is much easier to use fear as an obstacle to keep you from reaching your potential. Many fear of looking out of place in the gym environment. I highly recommend the group setting of fitness boot camps, group x classes, and also seeking the guidance of a qualified personal trainer. REMEMBER everyone no matter how experienced they are in fitness has felt the fear of the new gym environment. This fear is a short term pain for long term gains.

Top Tips To Alleviate Water Retention

DO YOU FEEL BLOATED? HOW TO AVOID EXCESSIVE WATER RETENTION

Do you commonly walk around feeling like a bloated Sponge Bob Square Pants? Have you noticed that you can bounce around 3-6 pounds per day? Are you dreading putting the bikini on or taking the shirt off at the pool this summer?!? Have you ever noticed one day you feel EXTRA lean and then some days you feel FLUFFY?!? This is very FRUSTRATING!! I highly recommend that you seek the assistance of our fat loss specialist at Good Life Fitness that will custom make your “Shred” nutrition program to help you look and feel your best for Spring:))

Here are some Summertime tips to help you better understand water retention and how to prevent it.

Our body acts very much like Sponge Bob. If you consume small amounts of water, it is very similar to taking a few drops of water and pouring it on a sponge. What happens? That dehydrated sponge will hold onto that water therefore causing you to look and feel bloated especially in the midsection. Now if you take a fully saturated sponge and pour a gallon of water on it the sponge will absorb it and then overflow the remaining amount. The common thinking is to restrict your water to lose weight, but what happens is the body perceives it and the signal is transmitted saying that you better retain it not knowing when the next water is coming again. This is what makes us feel bloated! Many people commonly will take water pills, detox pills, or other natural herbs trying to alleviate this water retention. These supplements are only a QUICK FIX to a problem that can be cured with proper hydration, water intake, and most important nutrition consistency! When you are bloated you are actually dehydrated. When you have the urge to drink water this is a sign of the first stage of dehydration. Have you ever noticed that all body builders carry a milk jug of water around and they are lean, muscular, and full of energy. Over 70% of America’s population are walking around chronically dehydrated.
How much water should I drink per day? I usually recommend first the following equation. Take your bodyweight/2.2. If you are doing that then your bodyweight x .66 = oz of water per day. Try adding lemon to your water. Common foods to avoid are dairy products ( cottage cheese), flour, excessive bread consumption, high amounts of cereals, frozen meals, lunch meat, salsa’s, spaghetti sauces, canned vegetables and soups, excessive caffeine, alcohol, fast food, chips, and pretzels.
There are foods that have properties to help alleviate water retention. Try and incorporate white fish, spinach, and asparagus to help with excessive water retention!! Another important factor is to not eliminate carbohydrates from your diet…this will cause more problems down the road.

Why 65% Of People Fail With Home Workouts!!!

Throughout the years I have witnessed some major life changing transformations. I still have so many questions about peoples struggles with achieving fitness success? Why does fitness have a 65% failure rate at week 12? Why do so many fall into the infomercial traps to only find themselves still looking for the next best thing? Why do so many look to the next supplement or fat burner to fill in the gaps where their nutrition is failing? Maybe we will never know the true answers but this is life long goal of myself and the staff at Good Life Fitness/N-10sive Boot Camps! We are dedicated to our clients fitness success!

Have you ever noticed in the local garage sales all of the fitness equipment sitting there? I have known thousands of people who have purchased P90x, Insanity, Bow Flex, treadmills, ellipiticals, and eventually they turn into glorified cloth hangers. Yes it looks easy and convenient but the #1 element is missing…GROUP ACCOUNTABILITY!!I truely believe the #1 element that is missing in many home video workouts is GROUP ACCOUNTABILITY!! Studies show a 225% success rate when people exercise in a group atmosphere! Travis Eckhardt was not new to fitness and like many Travis looked to the famous P90x and Insanity workout to help him take his fitness to the next level. I am HONORED that Travis has shared his personal fitness testimonial and his experience at Good Life Fitness/N-10sive Boot Camps !!

Background-Good Life Fitness has been a key element to my fitness transformation. I’ve always been an active individual, playing sports in high school and college. After organized sports ran its course I tried to occupy my free time by working out at the gym or doing P90X or Insanity workouts. The gym allowed me to maintain my current fitness level but never really improve, I simply wasn’t dedicated enough to push myself when no one was looking. P90X and Insanity are great workouts and I was able to see results but it became boring/dull doing the same workout over and over again. I soon found myself not pushing myself, fast forwarding the workout, and finally skipping workouts all together. I never really got completely out of shape all together but I definitely wasn’t pushing myself to improve my fitness level either.
Workouts-In late November I joined Good Life Fitness to participate in N10sive boot camps. I was very skeptical at first thinking that the workouts would be a walk in the park. WRONG. It was one of the hardest workouts I have ever done. In fact, a lot of days as I leave the gym I’m thinking to myself that was one of the hardest workouts I have ever done. That is the great thing about this place. Once you show up there is no stop button or slacking off or taking breaks. I also find myself constantly sore which means these workouts are really doing their job. I personally am very competitive by nature and love to set the pace in class if I can but not at the expense of sacrificing form. When Steve talks about “how we can make the workouts harder” I personally think if you have to ask that question you’re not doing them right. Every day is a challenge if you follow the instructions and push yourself.
Nutrition-Equally important as the intense workouts is your nutrition plan. Good Life’s nutritionists designed a customized diet for me based on my activity level that included calorie intake per day, what to eat, when to eat, etc…I try and stick to that nutrition plan as close as I can during the week. I certainly have my “cheat days” and have never said “no” to chips and salsa but by avoiding keeping those foods in the house I eat them less frequently. Good Life has also provided us with some great recipes to mix up our meal plan instead of eating the same food every day. I’ve been a big fan of the Myofusion protein that is sold at Good Life and just recently started taking the “Super Charge” pre workout drink that I feel has improved my energy and focus during workouts. I also prefer to work out in the morning because when I do I feel that I have better self control when picking foods to snack on. If I’ve just killed myself on a workout that morning I don’t want to go and offset it by eating something unhealthy.
Results– I’ve been a member six months now and my body weight has dropped from 177 lbs to 158 lbs. My body fat % has dropped from 12.5% to 6.6% and I have no intentions of being satisfied. These work outs are addicting, exciting, and always changing. You can’t say the same with a DVD workout. In addition to the results I’ve seen on the scale, the friendships I’ve developed over the past 6 months are equally as rewarding.
