Fitness companies and the industry has a bad rep. Primarily because there are scam artists all over the industry. Oh but wait…they are in every company and industry, so fitness isn’t alone in that argument. I want to let you in on a little secret about YOUR “resolution” to get healthy. This is profound and so simple that most won’t get it.
Your lifestyle choices will dictate your health and quality of life. YOUR life will end prematurely if you have a bad lifestyle and continue doing stupid things, such as: eating crap, drinking crap, not exercising, blaming others for YOUR faults. The list goes on and on. The purpose of you knowing the simple fact that you are in control of YOUR life, but nothing else. So become better at taking positive actions to make sure you are around to see your future. Three simple steps to do this are below. They work great by themselves, but harnessed together will make you unstoppable.
2- Nutrition (food and supplements)
Let’s talk about mindset briefly. Mindset is all about what you believe to be true. We can do two things in life. Choose to be a weak person and complain about our circumstances or we can rise above them, set our course based on our goals, and crush them! It’s pretty simple. If we have the mindset of a loser we will lose. If we have the mindset of a winner we will win.
Nutrition is HIGHLY important. As mentioned in another post some people seem to think that nutrition is not important at all when it comes to health and performance. I call these people prideful buffoons aka know it alls. We are what we consume. While our body may tolerate crap for a short time if we indulge in it long enough we will turn into it. Look at the movie “Supersize Me.” Honestly, I never watched it, but heard so much about how McDonalds nearly killed the guy. When people ask hey whats it in? When they clearly are a nutritional biochemist and know the ins and outs of everything, they simply just want to feel smart. That is. Nutrition MATTERS, but being a know it all doesn’t. Anyone who is not willing to accept there are better ways out there should not be taken seriously.
Training is equally important. It can be done the right way and the wrong way. The wrong way is wasting your money on a gym membership year after year in hopes of getting results and meandering through the facility hoping because you sweat you will have your life changed. The right way is knowing your goals, finding a target and coach, and crushing your goals. Then repeat the process. A coach can be paid or unpaid, however having someone to hold you accountable and slap you in the face when you are not getting where you want to be is a necessity.
