Enjoy the process, don’t think too far ahead
Its always good to have a goal whether it be short term/ long term, an end product to all your hard work
I see so many people fall off track or give up way to soon because they aren’t achieving their goal overnight, things take time in some cases your life needs adapting to all these changes being made.
- your food habits
- your social life
- the people who you choose to be around you, do they encourage you, have they been on a similar journey
These are all things that need altering slowly to help towards reaching the end result.
Don’t think too far ahead in regards to your progress you will have days good and bad, progress will be visible some days and not so visible others.
Its all part of the process just try and enjoy it, by all means keep focused but don’t overwhelm yourself too much at the very beginning, if your one of these people who can handle all these changes straight away then great do it but if not take your time.
ROME WASN’T BUILT IN A DAY
Short article today but a simple reminder to everyone who’s starting out or in the middle of their journey
Here at be inspired we are dedicated to helping people transform themselves, we understand everyone is on a different journey
We also understand that a transformation isn’t for everyone so when a client 1st comes to us wanting a body transformation we need to make sure they are ready and 100% want to change here are some of the main things to think about when doing a body transformation.
Mind set is one of the most important starting points in any transformation, some transformations can take as little as 12 weeks some up to 12 months, its always best to prepare yourself for the longer duration and set realistic targets and prepare yourself for what challenges may lie ahead.
Motivation what is your fear?
Ask yourself why? What is it that you want to transform, is it to walk along the beach on holiday with your top off or wear your bikini with confidence?
Or is it to not have your belly hang out when you lift your arms above your head, it may not even be a physical appearance thing you may just want to transform your fitness e.g. not getting so tired whilst running around after your kids
Whatever your motivation is this can also be used in connection with your fear e.g. your fear could be “ I’m never going back to how i was “ so that brings you to your motivation of why you want and need to do it .
Alongside a successful transformation is a successful training regime and the correct one for your goal
Once you have that training regime you need to walk into the gym with a purpose not just do a bit of this and a bit of that, be prepared to push past your comfort zone, when your muscles start to burn go past that point and do another 3 or 5 etc, think about what muscle your working contracting and squeezing at the correct times
Is your body set up correctly to get the most out of the exercise take things nice and slow put the muscle under more tension forcing it to grow and contract all these things make a massive difference when it comes to building a physique
If you’re unsure about any techniques or exercise selection hire a coach who can show you and demonstrate things in more detail.
I have missed a pretty big part of the process out of this list NUTRITION, this will be covered in more detail at a later date.
