New Years Resolutions: A Success Story

I posted this on the 1/1/2016 on my Facebook Page.

I thought I would share it here on my blog as well, considering the entire month of January is awash with people signing up for gym memberships in the hopes of getting back in shape.

Below I’ve listed a few tips to help you start the new year on the right track:

1. Have a plan

– Decide when you’re going to work out.

Decide how often you’re going to work out, which days of the week you’ll be working out, and at what time of day.

Stick to the plan.

Do not deviate from the plan.

Consistency is easily the MOST important component to getting in shape.

If you stray from the plan and skip 2 weeks of working out, you’re doomed. DOOMED.

2. Realize that getting in shape is a process

– Getting in great shape is going to take time.

It’s going to take longer than 2 weeks, and it’s going to take longer than 2 months.

Disappointing I know, but anything worth having is going to take time.

If it’s been 2 months and you don’t notice ANY change, you might be spinning your wheels and/or you’re doing something wrong.

**** Not sure how to progress? Hit me up, and we’ll determine what steps you need to take to get the results you’re after.

3. Don’t get stuck in the CARDIO COMFORT ZONE (I beg you)

– I see people on the treadmills, the elliptical, the bikes, the stair steppers all day – every day.

I shake my head often.

You know what all these people have in common?

They’re out of shape, overweight, and weak.

I wonder if they’re wondering why their bodies don’t change?

I have a theory…

Lifting needs to be the priority.

Want to get in shape?

Acquire lean mass on your frame.

That means muscle.

**** Not sure how to lift? Hit me up, and I will you show you how to lift safely, efficiently, and effectively.

4. Have a balanced approach in mind when deciding your training regimen

– What I mean by this is, you don’t want to do bicep curls every day.

Focus on the big compound lifts and then work to the isolation lifts.

Squats, Dead Lifts, Bench Press, Pullups, Rows, Overhead Press – these come first.

Leg Extentions, Leg Curls, Calf Raises, Bicep Curls, Tricep Extentions, Lateral Raises, Shrugs – These come second.

**** Not sure how to formulate a balanced, and appropriate workout program? Hit me up, and I will make one specifically for you, and then I will guide/coach you through it.

Basically, hit me up.

I’m looking for dedicated people who are gonna work to get in the best shape of their lives.

Hit me up if you need guidance. There’s nothing wrong with asking for help.

I’ll make it easy and fun, we’ll have a great time!
