Be Accountable For You
When we start a new diet or exercise program, it’s easy to place blame when things don’t quite work out the way we’d planned. Our local grocer didn’t carry the right type of fish the diet required, or our gym didn’t have the specific brand of rowing machine the program recommended. If pressed, we’d probably have to admit that with a little extra effort we could have adapted that menu or made the available rowing machine work. So why is it so hard to get results in a day and age where you can literally download weight loss programs off the internet for free and where you can follow someone’s diet and exercise plan on Instagram post-by-post?
For most of us, it boils down to the fact that we have nobody holding us accountable. Accountability is a key factor in determining the likelihood of success in any endeavor, and especially in our fitness and wellness endeavors.
A lot of people find it helpful to make a financial commitment to their goals – of course, we recommend joining a gym (and not just any gym, we think you’ll LOVE (TWB Fitness & Nutrition). Whether it’s a new gym membership, new sneakers or a nifty high-tech fitness tracker, investing in your goals helps you feel committed to getting it done. You’re more likely to attend a gym you’re paying for than you are to use that free exercise video on YouTube. And the reason is simple: you’re not losing anything (in theory – really you’re losing the opportunity to reach your goals) when you skip a day of YouTube workouts, but if you skip out on a gym membership – you’re spending real money and it’s harder to make excuses to skip that workout.
Invest In You
Whether it’s buying a gym membership, committing to a trainer or buying new shoes: drop a little cash on your goal and you’ll find that the investment often pays off big in the end!
FIND A SUPPORT SYSTEM
For some of us, a support system is a workout buddy, for others its participants taking a group fitness class or completing a cross training workout together. Almost everything in life is easier when you have people around you who are rooting for your success. A strong support system is a component of almost every success story. Find someone who’s in your corner and who wants to see you succeed – and better yet – be that person for somebody else and you’ll find that that will help you push harder toward your goals, too!
PLAN, PLAN AND THEN PLAN SOME MORE
Our system makes it easy for you to plan. We have our own custom branded app, we customize the workouts for you, as well as the nutrition, and feedback based on your goals. We track you not only on the scale, but we track your energy labels, measurements, pictures, and weekly weigh ins. We are here to help you reach those goals. Often times having someone to be accountable to will help us commit to ourselves.
