The Big Secret to Staying Consistent in Fitness

You might read a million articles or opinions on how to make fitness habits a consistent reality for you. You might even succeed with some of them while failing miserably with others.

So, I’m sharing with you today how my clients & I stay consistent in fitness.

Are you ready?

The secret is…

We make the choice.

That’s it. No matter our moods, what month or day of the week it is, what special occasion is coming…we CHOOSE to stay dedicated to taking care of our health and our bodies. There are cheat days and course corrections but we get right back on track.

Believe me, I wish there was a fancy answer, a magic pill. I’d be rich! ☺ But there isn’t.

Basic health and fitness is simply a choice. Once you understand and OWN that, it’s far easier to accept where you are and begin to facilitate change.

If you’re ready to make that choice, to CHOOSE health 365 days a year, please shoot me over a message and let me know. I’ve got your back!

It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint

When we decide we want something big in life – a body transformation, to compete in an athletic event, to start a business, etc., we often WANT IT NOW.

Frequently I have to remind clients that health and fitness, like anything important and worthwhile in life, are a marathon effort, not a sprint or a race.

Patience, persistence, and perseverance will get you everywhere when approaching big life changes or goals. Urgency, impatience, and inconsistency will, conversely, get you nowhere.

Can you lose 20 pounds in a month? Probably. But 2-3 months down the line things won’t look or feel very good.

More importantly, things like pain management, habit change, and improvement of health require a longer effort.

It is completely unreasonable to have speedy expectations of goals around transformation.

Always be honest with yourself. Do you give up when the results don’t come RIGHT NOW or are you in for the long haul when it comes to your health?

To have a body you love that stays strong for decades, you cannot race to the finish line…because there isn’t one.

So, the next time you feel frustrated by slow progress or find yourself slipping, remember you’re running a never-ending marathon. Learning to love every moment, even those moments of struggle where we grow the most, is essential to staying on your path.

I’m here to support your marathon if you need it.

Come As You Are

Whether you’re currently working with me or whether you have in the past or you may in the future, it’s important to me that you know that I want you to come as you are.

Come as the imperfect and amazing self you are RIGHT NOW and transform into the imperfect amazing self you want to be.

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t exercised in years, if you don’t know the difference between starchy and complex carbs, or if you love or hate the idea of fitness.

You have a place here. You are cared for, and you are wanted.

You don’t have to be anything that you are not to start making big steps to becoming your best self and receive the most incredible support.

Even if you’ve struggled to find support in other areas of your life, it will feel like home when you have a coach who understands you.

Sometimes people don’t get to hear how much they matter often enough, so I wanted you to hear this message today.

You are perfect as you are, and I appreciate you as your imperfect amazing self. 🙂
