It’s the first half of February and you’re wondering what the heck happened with the game plan you made on January 1st to hit the gym and change your life for the better. Well guess what? Before you decide to pack it in for another year, I thought I would share a couple points to think about.
Check this out… According to fitness membership statistics, 80% of the New Year’s Resolution Gym Crowd unfortunately drops off by the second week of February. It happens to the best of people and it is unfortunate when you take into account all the positive things that a consistent fitness program can do for your life stemming in many different directions, not only aesthetically. I could go over all the great things that can happen to you when focusing on your health and fitness, but today I just want to focus on one topic and that is CONSISTENCE.
I’ve seen a lot of amazing concepts in the fitness industry to keep people engaged and excited to workout, but the ability to help people realize that fitness is meant to be maintained as a lifestyle and not a one month mission is what any fitness professional strives to do for their members.
“It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It is what we do consistently.” – Tony Robbins.
It requires consistency to achieve long term success. So I’m going to leave you a few strategies you can add to your scheduler which I hope will help you not to join the 80% of all those gym goers who get side tracked and stuck back in the cycle of waiting until next year.
1. If you are in the dark about how to properly get to your personal fitness goals, book a session with a certified personal trainer. The guidance and instruction you will receive from them to move forwards is priceless.
2. Book a consultation with a local nutritionist or dietician and get a personalized nutrition plan as well. Just remember it all goes hand in hand and you can’t out-exercise an unhealthy diet.
3. Whatever you schedule into your new game plan, start by breaking it down with no more than 3 days per week to start. Let your personal trainer guide you from there.
Yours in health.
