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.

Fitness Comfort Zone-Stepping Out For Maximum Results

I am the first to admit that it is not fun to push yourself.  When I was powerlifting I dreaded the 3 hour squat workouts…but I had an amazing training partner that LOVED SQUATS!    It is human nature to constantly comfort and reward ourself throughout the day.  Look at Starbucks for example… They are constantly upselling you with the following one liner “would you like to add a delicious pumpkin bar with your latte”?  Well sure….I can comfort myself!   We have been taught from an early age that food can be comforting just like grandma’s chocolate chip cookies when we were upset.  Have you ever noticed that large commerical gyms are loaded with low impact cardiovascular machines or selectorized circuit equipment?  Have you ever noticed that the ellipticals are packed…I guarantee 45 minutes of the elliptical is alot easier than 45 minutes of running on the treadmill and people wonder why they cannot drop excessive body fat?  Why do people choose the easiest cardio?  Is it the low impact theory that draws people to the elliptical?  Have you ever noticed that it is hard to elevate your heart rate on the elliptical once you have been using it for 4 weeks…the same for the treadmill?  Have you ever noticed it is easier to run on the treadmill versus outside running?   cardio-brain1

What would you say if I could guarantee you to burn excess bodyfat with proper nutrition in little as 1 hour a day? 

Our bodies are very smart when it comes to fat burning.  Nobody wants to step out of their comfort levels when it comes to fitness.  What type of fitness would we do in a gym if the elliptical or treadmill was never invented?  How about interval training with weights and short durations of anaerobic training? Interval training guarantees to push you out of your comfort level.   I am a big fan of Tabata training, Hiit Training, and the super set method of training for burning stubborn body fat!  Here is a very effective Tabata program that will guarantee to push you out of your comfort level to pave the way for fat burning!

The Tabata program has a sequence of the following. Repeat this Tabata  then proceed to the next Tabata.

  • Bodyweight Lunges alternating feet:  20 seconds then Ice Skaters ( lateral) for 10 seconds.  Rest 10 seconds.  Repeat 4x
  • Bodyweight pushups:  20 seconds to front abdominal planks 10 seconds. Rest 10 seconds   Repeat 3x
  • Mountain climbers:  20 seconds then Burpees for 10 seconds.  Rest 10 seconds.  Repeat 3x
  • Bear Crawls ( side ways) for 20 seconds then chair tricep dips for 10 seconds.  Rest 10 seconds.  Repeat 3x
  • Lying abdominal bicycles 20 seconds then laying face down supermans for 10 seconds.  Rest 10 seconds.  Repeat 4x

Top 3 Tips To Achieve Your Fitness Goals!!

Why do people fail to achieve their fitness goals? Maybe it is the same reason many fail to achieve their life long dream? I really believe fitness is 90% psychological and 10% physical. Mindset is everything, and if you approach a task with a negative mindset, you are destined to fail. Have you ever known a pessimist? No matter what you say they always look at the negative. Personally I avoid these people…they are not in my 10th person group!

 

daily-energy

Here are my top 3 reasons that I think why people fail to achieve their fitness goals!

1. They Fail Before They Start– Why do people fail before they start on their fitness journey? I have experienced people who will come up with 50 reasons why they can’t reach their goal before they even start. They are starting with the wrong mindset! They use the common excuses such as no time, family comes first, no money, their job is too busy, class times do not work with their schedule, to tired, not a morning person, do not like to sweat, kids’ schedules, too expensive to eat healthy, spouse or significant other will not eat healthy! Well instead of thinking why you can’t succeed, what about thinking about how you will succeed or how you will use time management to succeed, use creative recipes to make healthy food, prepare food in advance, go to bed earlier, stop eating out to save money, or basically make your health a priority!

2. Remember you are your maker -Every waking moment’s purpose should be to improve yourself, both physically and mentally! It is sad to think people spend more money on the maintenance of their car than on improving their health!

3. Goals! Goals, goals, goals, goals, goals and more goals! Yes from the beginning of our lives, we have been taught about setting goals to achieve! I think alot of people have good intentions to succeed, but they just talk about them. In order to succeed you must write daily, weekly, monthly, 6 month, 1 year, and 5 year goals! You must write these goals down! I personally write my goals down on my desk to basically keep me striving both mentally and physically! My former training partner even put my #1 goal on my screen saver of my cell phone!!! Now talk about a reminder!!!! A goals that is not put down on paper is just a DREAM! Afraid Of False Starting! Fitness is very confusing! The fitness community has produced over 10,000 books that proclaim they have the answer to everyone’s problems! Now what about all the fad diets, fad supplements, fad fitness programs! WOW A TON OF CONFUSION!!! I believe that a mass majority of people have confused their bodies and their minds with clutter!! We have to sort through all of the spider webs and start on a proven path of fitness success!! THE ANSWER TO FITNESS IS TO FOLLOW A SOUND FITNESS AND NUTRITIONAL PLAN THAT WILL DELIVER RESULTS FOR REAL PEOPLE!!

BONUS#4: BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! HONOR YOUR BODY! YOU ARE YOUR MAKER! Every day is a new day! You owe it to yourself to take care of yourself for you and for your family! Your health should be a priority! Do not put it off till tomorrow. Strive for progress not perfection!!!! Please Feel Free To Leave A Comment! Dedicated To Your Fitness Success!! Steve

Good Life Fitness 21 Day Fat Melting Program

YES check out this 21 day fat melting program offered ONLY at Good Life Fitness!!!

21-day-rapid-fat-burner-program-2-3

N-10sive Boot Camps will provide you with best results, period.

I’m so sure you’ll be thrilled with the workout and results that are boot camps are the #1 in Nebraska!! You’ll know after just a couple N-10Sive sessions that the boot camp methodology we utilize gives you the most diversified workout possible in 1 hour. There is no other workout that delivers the benefits of weightlifting, gymnastics, plyometrics, short distance running, long distance running, yoga, and core work in such a short time! You’ll burn unwanted fat, build lean, toned muscles, and develop the gorgeous body that comes from balanced fitness.

What kind of results can I expect from boot camp?

You can expect a shredding of 3-5% in body fat, a boost in strength and endurance, and a cutting 2-4 inches around that stubborn midsection! A large part of making those remarkable results is from making wise nutrition choices and being consistent attending boot camp. With 2 certified nutritionists on staff we are here you assist you along the way. Of course, results vary from person to person.
I am worried that I am too out of shape.
All fitness levels are welcome at N-10Sive Boot Camps. If you are a beginner, or a veteran exerciser, N-1oSive Boot Camps will challenge you to your fitness level. No one is ever left behind! Our goal is to push you out of your comfort zone but also keep in mind your fitness level. During the class I divide repetitions from Level 1 to Level 3 so everybody is being pushed to their level to achieve results.
I like to exercise alone.
How long has your body been in a rut? Do you challenge yourself or skip workouts on low motivation days? Do you stop short when you feel fatigued? Our mind is the weakest muscle and N-10Sive Boot Camps will push you to safely improve your fitness level. The boot camp builds on accountability and group support which drives you to long lasting results.

What if I have bad knees and can not squat or run?
The squat is the most common movement we do in life. When it comes to injuries there are modifications to all exercises and I demonstrate each exercise with modifications for those that have joint issues. After personally rupturing 7 quadriceps tendons I have a tender heart for the knees, so don’t let this scare you from enjoying exercise.
