This week, I am writing to you after a very exciting, learning filled weekend with our favorite celebrity guest coach Adam T Glass.
One of the common topics that was discussed this week, was success over time…
Success over time, is all about the ability to “stay in and play the game long-term”. You may recall the coaches and myself saying that the “game of fat loss” is played 24 hours a day seven days a week.
Overall, this is the case for your fitness and health. The journey never ends and we’re never really on a break. We might be taking a break from moving toward our goals but that doesn’t mean our bodies have stopped adapting- either positively or negatively.
Every thing we do or do not do leaves a mark.
This weekend, Adam talked with both the coaches and some clients who came to transformation based workshops on the necessity of addressing 3 main areas- over time: physique change, performance and pain management (or mobility/ range of motion acquisition).
We need to have 3 areas (or more) for our focus so that we don’t get bored, so that we constantly have goals and mini goals to pursue and so that we take pressure off of one area or another.
Why? We can be a bit hard on ourselves from time to time and we can have a tendency to get frustrated or give up when we aren’t constantly seeing progress in the way we measure it.
This seems to be especially true for many of our dear physique change clients (you know who you are…)
With fat loss, our clients want the results Now.
In fact, yesterday would have been better.
And at times we see people get really stressed out and hard on themselves.
Maintaining fat loss as your goal- forever- isn’t sustainable.
There has to be more.
We have to eventually chase down other things.
This might be the season of fat loss for you, but for the others in our fit family what is your season?
Are you chasing down a performance goal?
Are you excited to do your first 5k, mud run, or triathlon?
Are you thinking about taking up golf, tennis, pickle ball, stand up paddle boarding or kayaking?
There are so many options.
Whatever you are doing here with us at Fit Body Boot Camp it will facilitate your performance based goals and it can facilitate pain reduction and improved mobility.
Which season are you in right now?
There is no right or wrong answer…but as we get set to begin the summer and our various client only challenges the coaching team and myself would LOVE to encourage everyone to have at least one mobility and performance based goal for the summer.
Let’s remember, we must play this fitness game with an eye toward the long haul.
Committed to your success,
Megan K and the team
