5 Keys to Get Lasting Results with your Health & Fitness

As a Personal Trainer and Healthy Lifestyle Coach, I have many people who come to me looking for quick results with their health and fitness. The reality is, they didn’t get to their current situation overnight. If you want results, more importantly results that will last, it will not happen overnight. It will require Hard Work and Patience. Period. Here are a few tips on how to get mentally prepared for achieving those results that you are looking for.

  1.  Make a decision. When we make a decision, we are telling ourselves that we are making the commitment to do whatever it takes to make that change. That is what making a decision is all about it, it is putting a stake in the ground, drawing a line in the sand, it’s saying enough is enough.
  2. Get Informed. Understand what will be required of you and from you to make these changes happen. This may mean making sacrifices and compromises. It may mean doing things that you don’t necessarily want to do, but in the end it will benefit you (like waking up early, cutting out TV, or replacing those french fries with a salad).
  3. Be patient. I know that it is difficult when you are making strides but you don’t see or feel like you are making progress. We live in a “microwave society” where everyone wants everything to be quick, fast and in a hurry. Well when it comes to lasting, life changing results, that is not the road you want to take. Change takes time and if you keep that in your mind, it will make the process (because it is a process) much easier.
  4. Get Assistance. If you find that you need more help to stay consistent, on track, and committed to your journey for change, it is okay, actually it is highly recommended, that you find an accountability partner, support group or even a coach (like me), to help you to stay focused. It’s always easier to reach your results when you feel like you aren’t going it alone.
  5. Track and Celebrate Progress. As I mentioned, this will be a journey, not a quick fix and although you may feel like you are not making strides, trust me, you are. Taking photos, measurements, journaling your journey, blogging, or creating videos to document your path to change, can give you that boost of confidence that you are on the right track. Don’t be ashamed to celebrate a victory no matter how big or small it may seem!

I know that you have it in you to get the results that you have always wanted, but it all starts with you making that decision. If you need help, encouragement, tips, or support to get the results that you are looking for click here so we can connect.

FREE Fitness & Health Coaching[Crown]-Keep-Calm-And-Work-With-A-Coach-For many of you, the new year is full of energy, motivation, and inspiration to make this year better than the years prior.  If you are truly serious about making 2013 great, it may require you to do some things a bit different.  Many people set goals and have big plans, but tend to miss the mark because they lack the consistency, the plan of action, and the accountability to make those goals a reality.  One of the ways that I’ve been able to do some amazing things like write a book, build my business, establish my new non profit, or lose weight and get healthy, was by working with coaches who could help me.

Some of the world’s most successful people, like Donald Trump, Steve Jobs, Les Brown, Oprah Winfey, all had coaches.  Why? Because they realize that they can’t do it alone and that they need help to achieve their goals.  Don’t let 2013, be a repeat of the years before.

Do you have fitness goals, like working out 6 times a day, losing 20 pounds, dropping 15% body fat, running a marathon?   Or maybe, you have health goals, like reduce your cholesterol points, eat cleaner, adopt a vegan diet, or drink more water?  In order to assure that you reach those goals it will require you to have a plan of action to attack those goals, develop habits that will foster consistency, and accountability to keep you on track to reach those goals.  If you don’t have these things, you won’t succeed.  Period.

As a coach, I can help you with your health and fitness goals. I will take your goals and help you create a plan of action that will incorporate daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly tasks to ensure that you are consistently working towards your goals. We will work together to keep you accountable by weekly check ins to discuss your progress and your challenges. Ultimately, it will be a partnership to ensure that you get the success that you deserve. It’s that simple…and it’s free!

Yesterday, You Said Tomorrow

I came across this photo right as the new year was rolling around and it really got me thinking about how many people choose to put off one of the most important things in their life – their health.

Recently, I had a chat with a woman, a mother of 2, that I had spoke to over a year ago.  Last year, she was telling me how she really wanted to lose a few pounds and get ready for the summer months.  I gave her a plan of action and told her that as her coach, I’d keep her accountable to help her reach her goals.  I was committed to help her reach her goals, but everytime I wanted to get started, she gave an excuse that she was too busy and that she would start her fitness plan and her journey to clean eating tomorrow.  Every time we spoke, she always said “tomorrow”. Eventually, we lost touch with eachother until last week, when out of the blue she called me.

In our conversation, she shared that she had gained over 45 pounds since we last spoke, her blood pressure and cholesterol was through the roof, and her health was really struggling. On top of that, she was finding it very hard to keep up with her young children.  The real kicker was that she has just came back from the doctor who had told her that if she didn’t lose at least 65 pounds she would be in jeopardizing her life.

She recently joined me with the 12 week “Healthy You, Happy You” Coaching program, and she no longer says ‘tomorrow’, she is now a woman who is all about ‘today’.  She is on her way to losing the weight, getting off her blood pressure & cholesterol meds, but most importantly, she is preparing for the rest of her (long) life with her family.

This story is so familiar for many people and I want to encourage you that if you have been putting off one of the most important things in your life, because you are too busy or whatever else, make today the beginning of your new life. Don’t put off tomorrow something that can save your life.  If you are looking for an extra boost or help to get motivated, I’m here for you! Happy Monday and make today great!
