1. Consistency getting into the gym
- 5 to 7 days of the week is considered consistent
2. Eating decent (not perfect)
- Aim to address 1 bad habit each month
- Personal Challenge
- Print out a blank calendar and write your new habit goal on top
- Give yourself a check each day you stay true to your goal
- Assess your consistency at the end of the month
- Continue to improve this habit
- Aim to build new lifestyle patterns
- Repeat with other lacking health/fitness habits.
3. Preventing injury
- If you are not sure what you are doing please ask someone for help. It is important to stay conscious of the source of your advice
- Some questions to ask a “Personal Trainer” or “Health Coach”
- Individual’s background and experience in the industry
- Is this individual working in health and fitness as a profession (what you want) or as a side-gig?
- How do they envision you reaching your goals (extreme answers are nearly never the answer)
