7 Fitness Habits Of Highly Effective People
The 7 Fitness Habits Of Highly Effective People
1. Eat Whole Foods
What is one of the major keys to success. Eating non-processed, non-packaged foods. Cleaning up just this one aspect of your diet will make a huge difference. Focus the next 30 days on eating only real food and you will be amazed at what happens.
2. Stay Consistent
No matter what you do, consistency will always be key in success. No one needs to workout every day. Decide upon a frequency (preferably 3-4 days per week) and commit to it. Again, let's commit to 30 days straight of at least 3 workouts. That's 12 workouts per month. Commit and execute. Also, stay consistent with your nutrition.
3. Get Plenty of Rest
Work + Rest= Success. You only gain muscle and lose fat during rest. Sleep is vitally important to that body fat loss. 7-8 hours per night. Focus for 30 days and see what happens.
4. Lift Weights
This is a no brainier. People who want to be in the best shape of their lives lift weights. The road to success is not on the treadmill or elliptical. It's in picking up heavy things multiple times for a long stretch of time.
5. Stay Hydrated
Being properly hydrated effects your results...period! Those who don't get results are not hydrated enough. Drink at least 100 ounces of water each day to maximize your goals and feel better.
6. Have Laser Focus
Focus on each task at hand with laser precision. For every problem there is a solution, your responsibility is to find that solution without being distracted. Do not cancel on yourself.
7. Have Non Negotiables
Set times periods you devote to workout. If you schedule a session, don't cancel it. Period. Make every effort to commit to the time you set aside. Find a way to MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Bonus: Never Give Up
Sometimes results don't come to us as easily as we’d like. That’s when we need to evaluate our habits to see if they are what is holding us back. Regardless, you should never give up. Never stop fighting and sure as hell never stop believing in your dreams. This alone is 90% of success in anything.
To take yourself where you want to go or have never been, you must focus on the habits you form. Your thoughts become your reality, rid yourself of clutter and unnecessary static. Use the habits above to build a healthier you and look the best you can.
