Perspective

Are you planning ahead? Do you realize the time it takes for the body to adapt to nutrition and exercise? It’s different for everyone, but it takes dedicated work and time. Those who are successful have taken the necessary steps, and those who rushed into the gym when the sun started to come out for “summer bodies” are a little too late.

It’s not that we can’t improve the lifestyle, but think about it this way: you’re only in the gym for maybe an hour a day- what’s going on during the other 23 hours a day? How many days a week are you dedicating to improvement? How much quality training are you putting in? How are you eating? What are you doing for recovery? How’s your sleep?

How honest are you?

It can seem like an overwhelming process but really it just takes some action. Then it’s making that action consistent. When it’s automatic it’s time to move on to another variable of your success. Then it’s keeping that momentum going.

This all being said, what are your goals for the fall? What about this coming winter? What about a year from now?
