3 Steps To Achieve Your Fitness Goals

How to Achieve your Fitness Goals.

The first question would be how do you train?

Does this sound familiar… 20min on some cardio machine such as treadmills, cross-trainer or bike? Or does this sound familiar Chest and biceps, Back and triceps, legs and shoulders. Or I’ll do my 2000 ab crunches and that will get me a 6 pack Anywhere between 3-5 times a week. Does this seem like you?

Ok now here is the big question. Are you getting results?…

What I am going to do is give you information that is going to help you get results and best part is, I am going to make it as simple as possible.

The most important thing with any sort of training is, HAVE A GOAL!

I have heard many people say I just want to be fit. My question is, be fit for what?
To get the best results with any training/ fitness program, you have to have specific goals or targets. It could be anything like I want to lose 5kg, I want to run 10k in less that an hour or I want to Deadlift 120kg. It could be anything you want it to be, but the most important thing is you need a target.

With a target it gives you more focus to achieve your end goal. With no goal you will NEVER get the results you want.

Here are 3 Steps to get started;

1. Give your self a goal
- Set your self a goal so you know exactly what result you want.
2. Give your self a time frame
- Time frames allows you set your self a time limit achieve your goal. This is an amazing tool to keep you focused on that target. Its also a great tool to develop to make sure every goal you do is attainable and not unrealistic (to lose 10kg in 1 day).
3. Have a plan and DO IT!!
- How will you do it? Having a training program is key to achieve your goal and by having a plan just makes everything so much easier.
- Lets get through the wall and get the results you want!!

Top 5 Nutrition Tips

Top 5 Nutrition Tips

1. Get rid of processed food - Eliminate all the bad food from the house. Taking away any processed and sugary foods from the house allows you to stay on track with any nutrition program. Knowing that all you have is good food in the fridge allows you to eat better and achieve the results you want!
2. Take Baby Steps- Don't go cold turkey. For a couple reasons 1. You may start well with good intentions by going strict for a few days or weeks, but you may end binge eating in order to satisfy your craving. 2. For every meal you eat well is one baby step in the right direction and by making these small gains, gives you motivation and drive to stay on track.
3. 80/20 rule - Give yourself some slack. By eating well most of the week, reward yourself with something your craving, it might be your favorite chocolate bar, a glass of wine or what ever it is. Giving yourself a reward allows you to stay on track longer and if you are struggling during the week, you know that in a few days there is light at the end of the tunnel when you can have your little cheat day or meal.
4.Drink Water - This is one of the most important things we need to do for life. Our body is made of 78% water and I guarantee most people do not drink enough during the day. By drinking about 2 litres a day can help flush any toxins in the body, which if they accumulate can cause dehydration which in turn cause tension, aches, pains and headaches. Water also aids with nutrition by speeding up your metabolism and keeping hydrated would also suppress your hunger and stopping you from having any cravings for any sugary things.
5. Prepare your meals - Have you ever heard the saying 'Fail to prepare, prepare to fail' If you don't plan things out most probably it will fail. If your plan is to eat for weight loss or just for better health, knowing that you have food ready to go is very important. Have you ever been in a situation where you you don't have any food with you and you end up just getting something convenient, like some sort of take out food (Mcdonalds anyone??). Preparing your meals the night before or even before you go to work. Gives you the added benefit of staying on track with your nutrition plan and most probably achieve your goals.
