90% of people who begin an exercise program want to lose weight. 50% of people drop out of an exercise program after the first 6 months. Why? There is so much information about weight loss it is hard to determine what is legit. I have been fortunate to learn the right away about nutrition and exercise, with an master’s degree in exercise science, and fitness coach for nine years. It took me some time to filter out the get-rich schemes and gimmicks. Here are some tips to determine if a weight loss program is ”full of it”:
- QUICK results with minimal time. ex: 20 pounds in a week, 10 minute workout, etc.
- You do not have to count calories
- Supplement line promoting weight loss
- It’s suppose to be EASY.
It’s upsetting to see how so many people want to lose weight, but do not want to WORK for it. “It’s just suppose to happen”.
I’m going to sell you this:
If you want to lose bodyfat, then you are going to have to:
Work your a** off in the gym 5- 6 days a week, sometimes working out twice in one day, with a combination of weight training and cardio exercises that pushes you out of your comfort zone. You will have to totally clean up your nutritional habits, keeping track of your calories daily. And by the way, it will probably take you at LEAST three months to lose 20-30lbs.
WHOA……..I hope I did not scare you. That is the truth and reality. The further one goes away from these facts, the further one drifts into a fairytale.
My primary role as a fitness coach is to motivate and inspire people to achieve their fitness goals. Clients in the Fight To Be Fit Weight Loss Challenge are very successful in surpassing their weight loss goals because they are under a proven system that works. Each client is kept accountable on ALL aspects of fitness/nutrition. These areas include caloric intake, cardiovascular exercise, mental attititude…yes, MENTAL attitude, and resistance training. Don’t be suprised if you get a text from your trainer at 6:00 am asking if you ate breakfast. This is an example of the accountability we offer to encourage success.
What are you waiting for? If this article scared you, then good. You are probably full of excuses and will only waste my time. Those that are serious about changing their bodies and are willing to give 110% commitment, I want you!
