San Fernando Valley Personal Trainer Knows Mental Aspects of Training Increases Success

It’s been said that it takes at least 21 days to form a habit which is why you see so many fitness challenges that are 21-30 days in length. While these are a great way to jump start your fitness program and provide great motivation and accountability they don’t seem to increase overall longevity. Many people end up quitting after the challenge ends, much like the gym population decreases come February and March.

San Fernando Valley personal trainer, Debby, knows that developing the mental aspects of training and nutrition work much better than gimmicks when it comes to commitment. But if mental toughness were easy no one would quit. Having an expert trainer like Debby on your side will insure your success.

What builds mental toughness?

Mental Fortitude: Committing to your health and fitness goals requires concentration, self-control and perseverance. It’s often referred to as mind over matter. It’s showing up at the gym when you don’t feel like going. It’s pushing through discomfort when you’d rather quit. It’s treating your workout not like an option but a must do.

Confidence: As your fitness increases so will your confidence. Eventually, the scales will tip in your favor and your confidence will become a tool that tests your limits and pushes your fitness to a new level. Right now you may doubt that you’ll ever be able to run a mile, but with mental fortitude, proper training and a new level of confidence you’ll soon consider a 5K run just a warm up.

Mental Clarity: One sure way to fail in any aspect of life is to have muddled goals. Learning proper goal setting leads to mental clarity and gives those goals the importance they deserve…that you deserve.

Positive Outlook: An important, but often overlooked part of gaining mental toughness is controlling your thoughts. Science has proven that our thoughts are powerful enough to ellicit physical reactions. If we think we are going to fail, we often prove ourselves right. Negative thoughts drain energy and diminish your accomplishments. Rather than focusing on what you aren’t able to do at the moment, honor those things you can. After all, you showed up and not everyone can say that.

Hiring the best personal trainer Woodland Hills has to offer will help ensure you reach your goals with confidence. Goals that have been clarified and tailored to your needs and desires. Contact us today to find out how we can help you set these goals and get you on the road to health and fitness.

Jason’s a really great trainer. I do the virtual personal training program because I know form, I just don’t have the knowledge to build my own plan. Jason’s always been very responsive whenever I have questions. He doesn’t give you a cookie-cutter plan; I have a few physical limitations and my gym doesn’t have the widest variety of equipment and he was very understanding and helped find the right exercise substitutions. I found the diet plan really helpful because it’s flexible enough where I can try different foods, but specific enough about how much and when to eat so I actually see results. Be clear with your goals and stick to what he says and you’ll definitely be happy with where you are in just a few months.

If you’re looking for rapid transformation success Jason Kozma is the best personal trainer available! Very happy with the guidance, accountability, and humor he provided during our training time together. He genuinely cares about getting his clients the best results possible. If you are not in the LA area he also has an excellent online personal training program. Highly recommend.

I live in Chicago so I used Jason's online personal training. It was a great experience especially for the price. He would monitor my workouts each week and let me know if I should be able to go heavier on an exercise based on everything else I was doing. He'd also review my recorded diet and tell me where to tweak things. He was also good about reminding me to update my weight and progress pics, and he'd adjust the workouts or diet based on that. He was honest about how much weight/muscle I should expect to gain and didn't try to make huge promises just to get business.
