For some people, looking and feeling great is motivation enough to work out and eat a healthy, balanced diet. For others, it takes a lot more than that. Some people need a lot of motivation just to get off the couch. Others need motivation to carve out time in the day to get to the gym or take a run. Others may have physical limitations or health issues that may prevent them from getting the exercise they need.
Back when I decided to transform my body to become a competitive bodybuilder, I realized it takes a LOT of motivation and dedication. To physically transform yourself into a competitive bodybuilder, athlete or fitness competitor goes far beyond what most people are willing to do in terms of diet, exercise and discipline. For me, I was able to take my own motivation and use it to help my clients achieve their goals as well. I’ve had the privilege of training a number of amateur and professional bodybuilders, athletes and fitness competitors to reach their peak performances. I won’t give away all of my secrets in my blogs, but I can tell you this, each and everyone one of them has a deep commitment to their fitness, nutrition and workouts.
For many people, finding the time, energy and motivation to eat right, work out and take care of themselves is just another item on their to-do list that never gets done. What if I told you there was a secret way to increase your motivation? What if I told you that there’s one simple trick to doubling your weight loss? Would you believe me? Well…here it is. Go grab a journal or a diary to write this down. I mean it.
Your Training Journal – Excellent Tool for Motivation
Journaling your workouts, weight loss and body transformation is the most motivating thing you can do for yourself. You will see your actual progress, be it weight loss, muscle mass gain, increased strength, faster 5k times. Whatever it is you want to improve, journaling is the best way to achieve this. Multiple studies have shown people lose twice the amount of weight, and are more successful in keeping it off when they keep a daily food diary and track their weight and exercise output. It may not feel like an accomplishment from one day to the next, but all you have to do is look back to where you started and see how much you’ve achieved.
Whenever I start working with a new client I always take their key body measurements, starting weight and their goals. They keep a daily nutrition log which we review and make adjustments accordingly. My team and I track their measurements and weight along with their performance to review regularly. At the end of their first set of sessions we review against their original goals to see how much they’ve accomplished so far. There are no guarantees in life, but if my clients log in their daily food diary and follow their nutrition and exercise plans, they will see dramatic results in less than two months. The motivation to continue is easy after that. All they have to do is look back to where they started and they can see the progress themselves. . All you have to do is look at my Before and After pictures to see how my team and I help real people meet and exceed their expectations.
