Why A 6 Week Fitness Plan Works!

A lot of people really want to get in shape and they’re super motivated to do it…..until that motivation starts to fade.  If this has happened to you don’t worry!  It’s not your fault!  If you want to succeed you need a clear plan and quite often one with a start and end date can really help escalate your progress.  Let’s look at why a 6 week fitness plan works!

Why A 6 Week Fitness Plan Works

To really get on point with your fitness program and to really feel excited about it most people do really well when they have a specific date to work towards.  This is not to say that you stop your fitness plan when you hit that date.  The idea here is to have a goal to work towards with a specific date attached to it so you have that motivation to stick with things when they get tough.

Here are some key points that a good fitness plan has that will almost guarantee success!

  1. Provides goals.

If you don’t have a clear goal how can you ever get to where you want to be.  Your goal needs to be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely.  It needs to be something that you can achieve with a specific date by which to achieve it.  This will keep you focused and motivated when things get tough and they usually do get tough at some point.

  1. Provides structure.

You need structure if you want to succeed.  You need to know what to eat and how much.  You need to know when to workout and what exercises you need to do to achieve your goals.  You need to know how often and how hard to workout.  Without structure you’ll just be spinning your wheels and that won’t get you to where you want to go.

  1. Provides support.

The majority of people do best on a fitness program when they have support.  With a good 6 week program you’ll have the support of your coach as well as the other people who are participating it.  These will be the people you’ll lean on when you need them and lift up when they need lifting up.  It gives you a sense of purpose when you’re part of a group working towards a common goal.

Get On A Plan Now!

If you really want to be successful with your fitness get on a plan now.  I recommend 6 weeks because it’s long enough to change your habits, but not so long that it seems daunting.  Once you get through the 6 weeks you can start another 6 week program and so on.  I promise it’ll be way more fun than doing it on your own and you’ll be much more efficient.

Why You Haven’t Achieved Your Goals Yet

How many times have you felt frustrated that you haven’t achieved your goals yet?  Don’t worry, you’re not alone!  Many people set goals that are totally achievable only to come up short.  There are reasons for this and I’m going to share that with you.

Lacking a plan

Many people have an idea of what they want, but not many take the time to write it down and then make a plan.  You need to know specifically what you want to achieve and write that down.  Then you need to come up with a game plan to reach that goal.  Break it down into steps and write the steps down so you’re clear on what you have to do.

Lacking focus

Once you’re clear on your specific goal and you have a plan, you have to focus.  Losing focus will guarantee failure.  To reach any goal you need to consistently work towards it every day.

Lacking a strong ‘why’

It’s fine to have a goal, but if you don’t have a strong why attached to it you’re going to give up when things get tough.  You need a very strong why that resonates so deeply with you that giving up is not an option.  Your why needs to be very personal with you and you need to be able to tie yourself emotionally to it.

Fear of failure

You have to believe in yourself and that no matter what, you’re going to reach your goal.  So many people decide to not even try because they think they’ll fail and their fear of failure paralyzes them.  Guess what?  By deciding you’re too scared of failure to even try, you’ve just failed.  Think about that – you’ve failed without even having tried.  Don’t fear failure!  You need failure so you can learn what not to do.  All you have to do is decide to go for your goal no matter what.  If you accept some failure along the way you’ll end up successful.  You only fail when you quit.

Not knowing how to get to where you want to be

No one should expect to know everything they need to know to achieve their goals.  That’s what the experts are for.  If it’s a health and fitness goal invest in help from a coach so you’re guaranteed to be put on the right path.  If it’s a business goal, hire a business coach.  There are experts out there that can help you achieve whatever goal it is you have.

Not enough money

So many people believe that they can’t achieve their goals because they don’t have the money.  Think of things you do spend your money on and why you spend that money.  You spend it because the thing you’re spending it on is important enough to you that you find the money for it.  If something is important enough to you, you’ll figure out how to be able to afford it.

Lack of support

I truly believe that the number one reason why people fail to reach their goals is a lack of support.  There is strength in numbers!  Even if the people around you aren’t supportive you can find support by seeking out a group of like-minded people.  This could be people at the gym, or an online support group, or a convention that you attend regularly.  There are many forms of support out there and isn’t it worth it to seek them out so you can achieve your goals?

Let’s Do This!
