Trainer Tip of the Week – Two Things You Must Have to Achieve Results
Let’s face it, we all go to the gym to achieve some type of results correct? Whether the results you are looking for are strictly health related, or vanity related, we all workout for the same purpose, and that is to achieve something. I’ve worked in the fitness industry for over ten years, and in that time I’ve see all types of people come and go. Over my time in the fitness industry as well, I have taken notice of the people who see results, and those who do not. In my opinion, there are two main components that separate those who see results and those who don’t, and those two things are consistency and intensity.
No matter what you are wanting to achieve, you must be consistent. I can’t tell you how many people I’ve met over the years that get really excited about working out, then get into a routine where they come for five or six days and workout hard for even two hours sometimes, then get burned out after a few months. After they lose the desire, they begin to skip the gym completely. After a little while unfortunately, they are right back to where they started and the same cycle begins all over again. That person is always on a rollercoaster. They are on a workout high and feeling good, to back down to a low and feeling sluggish and out of shape. There are never any real breakthroughs with this routine. If this is you, I encourage you to pick a frequency (days and length of a workout) that is reasonable, and a frequency that will get you the results you are looking for. Have self discipline, and dedicate yourself to that. You want to be on a routine where you are on a constant climb, and seeing results throughout your whole life. Remember, your fitness journey is marathon, not a sprint!
Along with consistency, those who see results also are also not afraid to work hard and challenge themselves. I always say that if cleaning the house fatigues you more than your workout, then something needs to change! Now, intensity certainly varies. Where as a brisk fifteen minute walk for one person might be a challenge, to another it might feel easy. However, if that person consistently challenges themselves with a fifteen minute walk, before they know it it will get much easier, and that means they’re ready for a new challenge! I encourage you, no matter where you are at in your fitness journey, do not be a afraid to get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself. If you do, you’ll love the results and progress you’ll see!
