At RM Fitness, as coaching staff, we all buy into the saying ‘Rome Wasn’t Built In a Day”
This quote equally applies to the ‘Couch Potato’ thats finally had enough of being sick, slow, lethargic, fat and lazy
As it also applies to the intermediate client who has hit a 140kg deadlift after 8-12 months training with us
What do these two guys have in common?
They BOTH want to progress further and are unhappy with their current position
Patience and Consistency are NEEDED to get to the Promised Land
if you are that guy that stuck in a rut
Maybe you’ve gotten into lazy habits; coming home from a stressful day at work, eating processed and junk food, having a couple beers and watching TV all night
These habits, although damaging, are very COMMON and very EASY to slip into
Never underestimate the power of momentum
You make one simple change today and you are motivated to make changes tomorrow then the day after
The best way to explain it is by imaging building a tall building (which is your body) you would have to build the foundation first
That starts with planning, then digging, then putting in a base, then pouring in concrete…and so on
Look at the pyramid below, you have to start with he base then build on it
That all being said,
I wanted to give you 3 Actionable, Simple Steps you could start today to start to build momentum
1 – Just get up and start MOVING
Often we want to do something in life, like getting in better shape.
and the ONLY thing stopping us is…
well its US!
We overthink what training plan to use, we speak to the ‘guy at work who’s in good shape’ we google exercise plans, we watch stuff on Face Book and You Tube
But we do jack shyt about it!
We are just collecting information
We need TRANSFORMATION not INFORMATION
So just get out your own way..
Few ways to get moving:
* Each morning do 10 reps of a body weight exercise (like burpees or press ups or body weight squats) each morning for a week then add 2 reps on the following week, 2 more the week after and so on
* If you are currently fitter, then a 10-20 min body weight circuit where you do 30-60 seconds on each exercise works well
* Get out in the fresh air and walk for 10, 20 or 30 mins
* If you are currently fitter then go for a jog or some hill sprints
if you want help with what to do get in touch – we will help you
2 – Drink 2 Litres of Water Each Day
My goal is to give you simple, quick actionable tips – so I wont bore you to death with science here
But just going from being DEHYDRATED to HYDRATED will give you very powerful, quick benefits
* Mental Clarity
* Fat Burning
* Muscle Building
* A Ton of Health Benefits
* Improved skin (and therefore feel good factor and confidence)
* Increased work capacity in all areas of life
The list goes on and on
I did a 2 min video on a very practical tip on how to get more water in:
Just do it!
– Are you on Social Media looking at other people’s lives 24/7??
Did you know your mentality becomes the AVERAGE OF THE 5 PEOPLE YOU SPEND THE MOST TIME WITH??
Now I’m not saying fire off all your family and close friends just cos they might be holding you back
But ask yourself; who can you be around more that influences you in a positive way??
One of the main benefits I feel helps the guys we work with move forward, is just being around other people on the same mission as them…likeminded, driven people
Its Rubs off on you – its contagious
It motivates you to do more, be more and then give back more
I’m also a huge fan of listening to podcasts of successful and motivating peopleAnyways thats our 3 Simple Tips you can use TODAY to start to build that momentum in 2016
