I recently started my 3rd round of Insanity last week and I am proud to say that I have successfully completed each day’s workout without skipping a day. Granted it is only week one, but most people who start Insanity, tend to drop off right after the Fit Test, which is Day One. Even with the best intentions, sometimes we don’t stay committed to a fitness program or going to the gym, because we don’t have anything or anyone keeping us accountable. If you have ever set out to start a fitness program, like Insanity, or going to the gym 5 times a week, then find your DVDs or sneakers collecting dust, chances are that you may need some accountability to keep you in the game.
Accountability is key for reaching your fitness goals, because it requires you to have to answer to someone or something and if you don’t pull your weight the other person is affected. I recently read a report by ExerciseFriends that “accountability partners raise the success of failing diet and exercise programs to over 95%. Their members tend to keep the pounds off if they keep working with a friend or partner.”
If you haven’t had much success starting and completing a fitness program, a new healthy eating regimen, or even reaching a specific goal, it may be time for you to get some accountability in your life. As a Fitness Coach, I am here to help you to stay accountable as I offer free fitness coaching, where I will work with you to help you stay accountable. If you are interested, click here to sign up! Also, each month I host accountability groups through Facebook (ran in a secret group) where we can check in daily with our workouts and our meals. You’d be amazed at the progress and results that my group members achieve and they all agree that the accountability group made all the difference.
