Almost weekly I hear a client say something like “I want to make a change.” To which I reply, “what exactly do you want to change and how do you envision getting there?" Sure, everybody starts a workout plan with good intentions, but staying 100% committed is tough. Whether you want to be skinnier, tighter, or bulkier you’ll first need to make sure you have the following; a clear goal, a path to achieving that goal, and a desire to GO ALL IN.
The more specific your goal is, the easier it will be to stay on course. Instead of saying “I want a beach body,” say, “I want to fit into my size 8 jeans.”
If you find yourself too busy to cook or eat healthy during the week, prepare your meals ahead of time. If you find yourself too busy to make it to the gym during the week, schedule workouts in your iCal ahead of time. Set yourself up for success, not failure.
Go All In
If you are serious about achieving your goal and you have a clear strategy about how to get there, the last thing you’ll need is gumption. It’s going to take time, energy, and sacrifice but anything worth having is worth fighting for. I can tell you that my greatest accomplishments in life, my marriage, my relationship with my kids, and my health & fitness all work because I GO ALL IN, every day.
