Who Is Your Fitness Support System

Wow peer pressure and a bucket full of crabs!  Sounds interesting?  Peer pressure can be the #1 downfall to a person’s fitness success!  Approaching the holiday season you will be put in situations that will test your loyality to sticking with the PLAN!  With multiple holiday parties and tempting co-workers you will really have to stick to your guns!  Don’t cave in!  Be prepared ahead of time! In the fitness world and in life I like to visualize people as crabs.  Have you ever noticed a fisherman’s crab bucket has no lid on it?  Why?  Well when one crab tries to escape the other crabs will pull him down.  No crab ever escapes.  Dating back to the college days I lived with guys that were constantly trying to get me to fail on my diet.  Don’t get me wrong I ate my fair share of pizza and beer, but when I got serious I was 100% committed to the plan! Now while I was cooking up my chicken breast, brown rice, and broccolli, these guys were eating pizza!  They constantly ridiculed me trying to get me to fail.  Stick to your guns!  Remember “No Food Tastes As Good As The Feeling Of Having The Body Of Your Dreams”!  I love that line from Bill Phillips! To be successful with your fitness goals stick to the “10th person theory“.  Choose your surroundings and friends wisely.  Choose 9 other people that are on the same mindset of fitness that you are.  This goes for all aspects of your life.  The goal is that you will be 1/10 of those successful people!    Avoid the crabs in life that will constantly bring you down.  Be an optimist!!

Top 7 Tips For Fitness Success In 2018!!!

Short term pain for long term gain! In order to achieve what other’s haven’t you must be willing to make sacrifices that others won’t. Unfortunately in the beginning these are short term pain. Every successful fitness transformation requires short term painful sacrifices that really make the major difference in long term 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 the Good Life Fitness youtube channel 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. Train smart and expect success!!Share it! Facebooktwitter

3 Tips For Long Term Fitness Management

Looking at various studies on obesity, the researchers found several common factors among those who were successful in maintaining their weight loss long term.  Check out these top 3 tips.
  1. Limiting T.V Screen Time-  I often hear I do not have enough time to exercise...but funny thing is they can recite the current sit-com show to you.  With T.V comes snacking and mindless eating...BE CAREFUL:)   The average American population spends 3 hours a day watching T.V.  Try and replace this time by taking a walk or going to the gym..
  2. Maintaining Consistency-  Our bodies are creatures of habit. Staying consistent on your daily caloric intake and maintaining consistency with their workouts and nutrition was  key.  There is no "falling off the wagon".
  3. Weight Training-  The secret is "muscle".  Yes NOT huge bulk but muscle.  The key for long term bone health, metabolism health, and successful weight management is preserving your muscle.  It is the armor of your future success.  Exercising with weight a minimum of 3 x week.
