Weight loss is hard work, and that’s a hard pill to swallow. But it shouldn’t be. Diets, pills, or quick fixes that promise you results in a few weeks-you know exactly what I’m talking about. Those fat-burner pills, crazy master cleanse, or that workout routine that promises you’ll drop 20 pounds in 28 days all seem to lead us right back to where we started. Successful weight loss is a combination of habits and behaviors that will not only help you drop a couple inches around your hips, but will also boost your confidence, energy, and overall quality of life.
How to lose weight without a personal trainer
Learn how I address the most common reasons why people come to me for help and share my tactics and strategies on how you can overcome those challenges on your own.Posted by Gimme Fit on Monday, January 21, 2019
How to succeed without a personal trainerFor anyone who might be new to my content – Hi, I’m a personal trainer who dedicates most of my time working with people to create lasting weight loss results in their lives. So instead of trying to convince you not to pursue a route of working with a trainer, I’m going to break down the common reasons why people look to me for help and share with you the same tactics and strategies that I use to help them out.
InformationThinking back to where I started out in my own fitness and nutrition journey tells me two things:
- That I’m getting old
- I have really learned a lot of information
AccountabilityHere’s the tough part. You knew it was coming – accountability. Accountability will make or break your success. It’s one thing to know what’s right, but then you’ve got to act on it. If you’re looking for help on goal setting, I dove into that a bit deeper in my article of how to Skyrocket Your New Year’s Resolutions This Year.
Staying on trackThere’s a cool study at braveheartsales.com that I want to summarize. The study allowed five groups of people to use different strategies that would help them stay accountable to goals that they set for themselves. These are the different strategies that each group implemented:
- They mentally kept track of their goals and what it would take for them to accomplish them
- They wrote down their goals and what it would take for them to accomplish them
- They created actionable commitments to reaching their goals
- They created actionable commitments to reaching their goals and sent those goals and commitments to a friend
- They created actionable commitments to reaching their goals and sent those goals and commitments to a friend as well as a weekly progress report of how they’re performing
