Five Steps of Fitness

Today I am going to write a blog on “Five Steps of Fitness“. Below are the five steps we all go through when starting a new fitness program no matter what fitness level we are.

  • Make a Decision to get healthy
  • You Doubt yourself
  • Conquer Doubts
  • Associate yourself with Healthy People
  • Set a goal for yourself

1) Make a decision to get healthy…

This takes 3-4 seconds but it takes about 2-3 weeks to make a habit – hang in there at least that long…and BUILD GOOD HABITS.

2) You doubt yourself…

It is absolutely natural to have doubts about what you are undertaking. My advice is to start doubting yourself as quickly as possible and get over it. Realize self doubt is part of the process…Even SEAL trainees doubt themselves, but those who become SEALs conquer their doubt.

 

3) Conquer Doubt

You can do anything you set your mind to.




That is what you just told yourself. This is where the mind and body connect. Use the workouts to be a catalyst in all areas of your life: work, relationships, school, etc…I am a firm believer that exercising your body will give you the stamina and energy to exercise your mind spirit and build better relationships with those around you…




4) Associate yourself with fit and healthy people…

Now you are fit in mind and body. Your example will inspire others. Be a role model to another heavy person. People will be amazed by your new work ethic and work and play. Eating healthy is now a habit for you too…In fact eating crappy food makes you feel ill slightly..




5) Set and conquer a goal for yourself…

Whatever you like – run, swim bike weight lift…Challenge yourself to run a 10km, lift 400 lbs etc…
