It’s that time – let’s take a second to see where you’re at with things.
As the saying goes: “Look at your goals. Look at your behavior. Does your behavior match your goals?”
When I say behavior, I’m referring to your habits. That’s really all getting in shape is – developing good habits. Work on your habits consistently and you’ll get in good shape. It really is that simple.
The key is to make sure your habits are working within your lifestyle. Attempt a hardcore lifestyle change and you’re going to get really overwhelmed, really fast.
The other end of the spectrum isn’t much help either. Completely ignore your habits and you’re never going to change. In fact, your health and fitness will probably deteriorate over the years. No one wants that.
In essence, we’re talking about lifestyle management. Think of your fitness as a dial: things don’t always have to function at a full blown 10. You just want to very slowly crank up the dial over time. As the weeks and months go by, you should have several habits that are just part of your normal routine. It’s almost as if you do them on auto-pilot. Those habits add up to significant results.
So let’s take a quick look at how you’re feeling, what you’ve been doing, and what you’d like to focus on moving forward.
By the way, I will be sending this out every so often. I know, I know – you’re very busy with a ton of things to do. But there are worse things in the world than having to deal with your trainer who wants the best for you. :). Plus I like hearing from you guys.
As always, let me know if you have any questions. See you on the training floor!
