Dedication and Consistency

:Scott Kratochvil

I have written about “Motivation and Dedication” and the difference. (click the link to read that article)

Now that you are working on the dedication part it is time to plan and work on the consistency part, as they go hand and hand. If you want success you need to simple daily disciplines. You need to plan this and dedicate yourself to follow through on these things.

When I meet with clients we talk and set up goals to achieve but as in the article link above, goals are dreams until you have a plan and take action. After we set up goals we go through an action plan. This is where the dedication and consistency comes into play. There is no magic diet, no magic workout program, no magic pill or magic potion. There is just math, science and education. It doesn’t matter your goal people have achieved it and more. They did it with math, science and education added with dedication and consistency.

If you have a plan in place that will get you the results you desire and you don’t take action your goals will just stay a dream. You can read this article “Your personal program” here to start getting an understanding of what you need to do.

After a client and I discussed goals we go into the math, science and education part as in the article above to put together their plan. Once we have the specific needs to achieve to accomplish their goal we lay out the consistency part. We set up monthly, weekly and daily goals of consistency to achieve the goal at hand. If your goal is to have ripped abs, I’m sorry to tell you 6 minute abs 3 times a week isn’t going to get you there. Running a marathon isn’t going to be accomplish by walking 20 minutes at lunch every day. Deadlift 500+ lbs isn’t going to happen by doing 5 lbs curls a bunch of times. Rehabbing an injury isn’t going to happen by sitting on the couch. Improving mobility isn’t going to happen by sitting at your desk at work all day. All of this seems very obvious doesn’t it? This is the exact approach to many clients that first walk into our facility, it is not their fault but it is the human condition, we want everything now!

Any goal is going to be accomplished by doing small things daily. This is when our clients really succeed!!! Have a plan in place, follow it daily and work towards that goal daily. We do have a lot of clients that just want to get their butt kicked and not think about their workout and that is completely awesome! If you do have a goal you want to achieve we need to sit down and put it all together. Then the dedication and consistency on your part comes into play. We are here to walk with you on this journey and help keep you accountable and on track but ultimately it comes down to what you are doing when you are not with us that determines your results.

Contact us to sit down and set up this plan so you can get to crushing your goals!

A really good teacher is never a giver of “truth,” but rather a guide, a pioneer to the truth that the student must discover for himself. A good teacher, therefore, studies each student individually and encourages the student to explore himself, both internally and externally, until, ultimately, the student is integrated with his being. A good teacher is a catalyst” – Bruce Lee

5 Myths Exposed that you keep you from burning fat

bustingthemyths

There are plenty of exercise misconceptions out in the world, some of which may be holding you back from your best body.

Do the following 5 exercise myths sound familiar? This may be exactly what you need to hear.

1) Exercise on an empty stomach burns more fat.

This theory says that if there’s no fuel in your body to burn then you’ll end up burning fat, but research has proven otherwise. Instead of pulling the energy from stored fat, there’s a better chance that your body will look to energy in your bloodstream and muscle stores. Further drawbacks to exercising on an empty stomach include shortened workouts due to lack of stamina, and dizziness or nausea from low blood sugar.

Instead of going hungry, enjoy a small, nutritious snack about 90 minutes before you exercise.

2) Cardio is more effective for weight loss than weights.

For some reason women seem to love the idea that they will burn more fat by running on a treadmill than by lifting dumbbells. Sorry ladies, but cardio alone is never as effective as a routine that also includes resistance training. Strength training is essential for building lean tissue, which increases your metabolism and decreases your body fat.

If your goal is weight loss, then make friends with some dumbbells.

3) If you exercise enough, then you can eat anything you want.

This myth makes me cringe, as I’ve seen so many people throw away their hard-earned fitness results by overeating. Even if you exercise daily at an intense rate, your diet still matters. To top it off, most people overestimate how many calories they burn as well as underestimating how many calories they are eating. This can be a fattening combo.

For best results, maintain a calorie-controlled diet filled with fresh, wholesome ingredients.

4) For optimal fat burn, exercise longer at a low intensity.

Wouldn’t it be nice if this one were true? Then instead of pushing it hard in the gym we could all simply go for a nice, long stroll to burn fat. Umm, usually if something sounds too good to be true that’s because it is too good to be true.

Intensity matters when it comes to getting great results, so challenge yourself.

5) Unless you exercise often, exercise is a waste of time.

I hear this myth in the form of an excuse from people who haven’t started an exercise program due to the idea that they won’t be able to exercise enough to make it count. Research continues to prove that any exercise is better than zero exercise. So you can only exercise once a week? Do it.

Any exercise is better than zero exercise. Contact me today and we will get you set up with an exercise program tailored to your lifestyle.

The sooner that you get started on my results-driven exercise program, the sooner you will be living life in your new, slimmer body.
