6 Tips To Fitness Success

  1. We must think about fitness as more of a permanent change. A way of life. Otherwise the gains you make, if any, will all go away once you stop and you'll end up more disheveled.
  2. Start gradual or small. Make your goals attainable, but worth your while. Once or twice a month will not be enough as well as making the goal of doing something every day either. This will inevitably lead to burn out.
  3. Cover all your bases. You must address every area of importance as it related to your health and fitness goals. Address weight training, cardiovascular and nutrition. Nutrition is 70-75% of being healthy and seeing results. Start with the right formula of all of it.
  4. Get the Support that you need to be successful. Not everyone can achieve his/her goals without a good support system. This does not mean that they give you advice but that they encourage you and hold you somewhat accountable.
  5. Be consistent. Doing anything without some kind of consistency, you'll only get so far. Don't expect to see results without some kind of consistency.
  6. Get professional help if needed. This could be hiring a personal trainer, getting involved in group training class or bootcamp, etc. Having a professional to help you along the way has been shown to produce faster results and to improve compliance.
Have a Happy New Year!!
