Are you finally achieving the weight loss, and the health and fitness results you desire?
1. The secret is making a simple Commitment to your exercise program.
There are big companies out there who want you to believe that a pill, or a fad diet, or a special machine will solve all your weight loss and fitness problems. This may be counterintuitive and insult your common sense but people still want to believe, because there is so much PAIN in doing it the right way. The real secret is quite simple; eat 3 to 5 small healthy meals per day and perform a combination of aerobic and resistance training exercise for 40 to 60 minutes 3 times a week. Take out your calendar right now and mark off three days each week for the next 12 weeks when you will commit to exercising. Then do it. Your commitment to your schedule will bring you the results you want.
2. The secret of having a Coach.
Almost every self-help book ever written talks about the critical importance of having a coach or a mentor. A coach is an experienced and trusted counselor or teacher. It?s inevitable that you will come up against hard times on your path to losing weight and getting fit. A coach will guide, motivate, educate and support you ? so you can easily and rapidly overcome these hurdles. A coach is critical to systemizing your exercise program for maximum results and assisting you in heightening your motivation and strengthening your commitment. And a coach becomes your ?objective feedback system,? helping you see, understand and correct the problems that are interfering with your progress. Exercise and nutrition are bona fide sciences and learning everything you need to know on your own can take years of struggle, but not if you have a coach.
3. The secret of Progression.
Have you ever met someone who says they exercise week after week, month after month, even year after year and aren?t getting any new results? Believe it or not, doing the same workout over and over without expert guidance to direct your progress will actually decrease your fitness. You must learn how to progressively improve and fine-tune your efforts for maximum weight loss and fitness results.
4. The BIGGEST secret: Accountability!
In a recent study at Virginia Polytechnic University, researchers divided people starting a walking program into two groups. Every week, each individual in one group got a phone call asking how their exercise program was coming along, the other group got no calls. At the end of 24 weeks, 45% of the individuals who got the phone calls were still walking compared to just 2% who did not receive calls. The results show that weekly accountability increases the likelihood of sticking to your exercise program by 2200%!
What you?ve just read is some of the most valuable information you will ever hear on how to lose weight and get fit. And having the RIGHT information is critical. But intellectually understanding what should be done, and actually doing it, are two very different things.
I have discovered that the ultimate secret to getting the results you want is finding a coach who understands you and provides you with an effective weight loss and exercise program and guidance, motivation, support? but most of all, a coach who makes you ACCOUNTABLE!
