If you’re waiting until you’re in better shape or the exact right time to really commit to your fitness and nutrition, I have to tell you that the perfect moment you are waiting for is probably NEVER GOING TO COME.
So here’s where I would start: Awareness.
- Awareness of your strengths.
- Awareness of your weaknesses.
- Awareness of what you need to improve.
Awareness precedes change. And you’re here because you want to create change.
You’re most likely aware that we are a functional fitness gym that focuses on strength and conditioning while exercising at relative high intensity.
Our workouts and exercises are programmed to improve your fitness and to aid you in your fat loss pursuit. We program these workouts with 3 levels and we lower the intimidation factor with our fundamentals level which is designed for people who have never worked out before, just getting back into fitness and/or have injury concerns.
This is WHAT WE DO. And we are constantly improving our execution of this service for you. We like to think of it as the best hour of our day. An hour we push the limits of what it means to be human through the expression of our god given ability to perform functional movement as we test our physical and mental capacity – our potential.
But it’s not just the gym alone that gets you results. Yes, it may be the catalyst through it’s positive and supportive environment, as you gain access to expert coaches, while associating with like-minded individuals pursuing similar goals.
But if you want results, you have to be aware of what happens in the kitchen.
You have to be aware of what is going on the other 23 hours of the day you are not with us at BEFIT.
To keep good nutrition brief for effectiveness:
- Eat real food not too much of it:
- Meat and vegetables
- Nuts and seeds
- Some fruit
- Little starch
- No sugar
If you are doing this at most meals throughout the week you will be creating a positive internal environment in your body.
Then we look at your sleep and stress at work.
Are you sitting at a desk and moving just 3000 steps per day? If you have a fat loss goal, you need to move more than 10,000 per day. It’s that black and white. 10,000 steps per day is the same as getting enough vitamin c so you don’t get scurvy. Get under 10,000 steps a day (despite training 6 days/week in the gym) and by definition you are still sedentary (inactive).
If you are not in an environment at work that allows more movement. We encourage you to come in the gym early or stay late, jump on a bike or rower, and just move nice and easy at a pace similar to walking. We’ll save the intensity for the workouts.
This brings us to the importance of a positive environment.
It’s the environment that a gym like BEFIT cultivates, coming in everyday, that will make you want to focus on eating better and moving more.
So to create change in your fitness and nutrition:
- be aware of your actions – are you moving enough, are you eating real food that is mostly meat and vegetables
- get yourself in a positive environment – we’ve got you covered in the gym, but how can work and home be more aligned with your goals?
Life is always throwing us new challenges. Anchor your fat loss goals with a 3 pronged approach of consistent bootcamp workouts, real food, and daily movement. This not only will change your body, it will change whom you become.
Committed to your success,
