You see it all the time. Fitness programs that offer “quick fixes” which often leads to quickly losing the results you got after the plan is over. The big problem is that the plan itself is not sustainable. Whether it’s a restricted diet that you can’t eat much of anything that’s enjoyable or you are told you need to be on the treadmill everyday like a hamster on a hamster wheel. Both aren’t realistic in the long term.
Ask yourself, is it worth your time to get results for that short time period OR would you rather get results and actually be able to sustain it for the long term? Seems like a no brainer.
Below is a picture of Ryan who is one of our clients. This picture was taken only a month into being a member at our gym and he has come such a long way. He has lost 22.9lbs of PURE body fat, gained muscle, and got a lot stronger since joining us. He tried working out on his own, weight loss apps, but couldn’t find anything that worked for him. With his busy schedule with his work as an accountant and being a father, he realized he needed extra help finding a solution that worked for him and his lifestyle. So not only has he got great results, but he is able to continue to be healthy for the years to come, not just weeks.
So the moral of the story is if you decide to take action on your health, one of the first things you should ask yourself is this a realistic plan for me? Most of us are busy with work, family, and other activities. It’s easy to overwhelm yourself and then you become burnt out and then stop entirely. Make sure it’s a sustainable plan like Ryan’s!
