I've got a question for you. Are you fitting in any of the following every single week?
Feel free to comment below after reading this article. If you're like most health and fitness enthusiasts, you probably are doing at least one of these, maybe 2 consistently ever week. Some of you, I see disappear as
the list goes on. Look at the list again, this is the list that produces the best results/gains when it comes to
your health and fitness.
For those of us with a perfect schedule, it's a piece of cake to consistently reach our goals. Of course
having a perfect schedule is the exception rather than the rule when we talk about long-term behavior,
months, years. Even if we didn’t always fit in the entire list every week, but at least 2 items, we'd be in great shape all year around. The concept of consistency is one that generates results.
All of my clients are aware of this list, especially those who are getting awesome results.
I could go on, consistency creates above average results and the more consistent you are, the more likely
your results will become exceptional.
Still, there are those few who absolutely blow it. There are those few who believe that once you swipe that credit card, magic rains down from the heavens. Just like when you swipe that plastic to buy your favorite
comfort meal, a new outfit at the mall, a tropical vacation or a new car. Instant gratification and feel good
vibes. Things are different when you purchase training or coaching. You now have to get down and dirty, do the work and keep it up. We're all human ok, if you've fallen off the wagon, just hop back on. Your character and your health will thank you.
As a coach I do absolutely everything in my power to provide value. I identify my client's deepest
frustrations, learn to understand their problems, guide, motivate, create a solid game plan, change, tweak
and adapt as needed to fit my client's strengths and weaknesses and also model good behavior. It's a lot of work, yet I love providing this kind of value.
All the client has to do is take all these tools and take action, consistently. Ask for help, consistently. Do the homework, consistently. As long as it takes, day after day, week after week and month after month.
Is there room for blowing off a workout now and then ? Yes, and here are the only reasons why you should:
The core of consistency is an ongoing commitment to action and focus. Some things are non-negotiable.
Commit to taking action on your list, be it massive action or steady action. How does consistency make an appearance in your life, your fitness and health? Are you in it for the long run?
