We all know the trouble of shaping our bodies to the figure we want. Getting those perfect abs, that rock hard chest, or those toned legs all take time and knowledge of what steps to take. Now I want to ask you, what steps are you taking toward your goals? Have you taken a step today? Do you have a diet plan to lose weight?
If your new to the fitness world and have found or been looking for the gym to help take you to the next level, remember it will take more than just a gym membership. ONLY 5% of people with gym memberships will obtain the results they desire. Why is this? Well, 95% of gym members don’t have a set plan on what to do next. If you’ve attended a gym for years and still haven’t seen the results your looking for, then it’s time to take a look at what you’ve been doing and change it. A diet plan can usually push you to the next level.
Here are some quick tips to help you plan for your fitness goals. First, start writing down what you do each day. Keep a journal of your workouts as well as what your eating. If you can see what you’ve done in the past, then you can change it later if needed. Keep measurements of yourself. You always want to know where you were and where you are now. If you don’t do this the mind will play tricks on you. Since changes do happen slowly, your own eyes have trouble actually seeing the results. That’s why we require numbers to help us see what we’ve attained. Don’t let your weight bring you down…a better number to pay attention to would be your body fat percentage. And lastly, do some research. It doesn’t take but a few minutes to read a fitness article or have a small chat with a local personal trainer.
So don’t wait till next week to plan your next step. Start right now. I want to know:
What’s your strategy?
