If you go to the gym once and work your legs out until they are so sore you can’t sit on the toilet, do they look thinner? Feel stronger?
What a silly question! Of course not.
Then WHY is it that so many people out there think they can get a quick fix at the gym? They think “I’ll do one personal training session and then I’ll be on track and I’ll get thinner and stronger.” Yes, going to the gym is the right idea. And yes, getting on track is the right idea also. The ‘on track’ is the bridge between your cause and effect. It’s the path that you set yourself on.
So why do so many people start on the path, hop off of it, and then feel disappointed that they didn’t achieve their goals? Unrealistic expectations. There are NO quick fixes at the gym!
It takes approximately 3 months to see a difference in your body from consistent exercise. So, yes, after one month please feel great that you got that far, but don’t expect to see much difference. Pay attention to the difference in how you are feeling and keep on keeping on. Yes, you may get discouraged, and that’s when you really need to dig your heels in and move it! If you can’t do that on your own, hire a Personal Trainer who knows the most effective route to get you where you want to go and will hold you accountable.
When you set out to do something you put a plan into action and start on a path. Think of your exercise goals in 3 month segments. Work for that 3 month goal and stay on your path. When you achieve the goal, have a pre chosen reward for yourself. Then take your newly empowered self and move on to the next goal.
DON’T GIVE UP!! Give it the whole 3 months. If life happens and you waver, adjust your time frame and hop back on your path.
Many people have trouble motivating themselves to keep going for a three month period. That’s where I come in. I can assign you an experienced Personal Trainer based on your individual needs and fitness goals. We have an introductory special going on to get you started on your path to Health and Fitness! It’s $150 for 3 sessions! That’s half off the regular price.
Are you going to keep saying “I really should work out”, or whatever your version is? Or are you going to DO it???
Here’s a quote from Tony Robbins:
“A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.”
See you at the gym.
