5 tips to reaching your goals of a lean, fit and strong body

June 28, 2013

This was the day that I made a promise to myself.

See that guy right there? That was me just a few years ago as you can see by the time stamp…4 years ago to be exact (from the time this post was written).

I was 300lbs, unhappy, unhealthy and the most sad – not attempting to fulfill my potential. The photo was taken the day I had promised my self to change. That is no exaggeration. THIS VERY DAY! I was at a tipping point. I was in my mid-30s, overweight, playing music all night long and sleeping all day, eating crap food – just not being happy OR healthy. I made a promise and I held myself accountable. I settled into my goal of getting a six-pack, but more importantly to me…

Feeling better, happier, and getting my fat self healthier!

Yes, that’s me and my now wife on our honeymoon in Key West just a couple of years later! She was with me throughout the whole process and lost over 50lbs herself following my Sõl Food Diet.

How did I do it?

Well, I will tell you one thing that is VITAL to the process…

YOU MUST HAVE SOMEONE THAT CAN HOLD YOU ACCOUNTABLE.

A good coach/trainer will be checking in on you, making sure your following the plan, feeling good and dialing it in proper! WIth my clients I keep my numbers low so I can give them 100% of my attention and ensure there staying on point. I don’t chase money and clients, I chase RESULTS!

I truly love measurement day as I know we have put things in place that will ensure those inches are falling off. It is an exciting day, cause unlike some people, I KNOW what that feels like… seeing the fat melt right off and the muscles/shape come in. I have been in there shoes.

It is truly a great feeling

I get to relive it every time on measurement day, my clients know this day is coming and we prepare/plan accordingly. It is an exciting day for both of us!

To summarize:

  • Have someone to hold you accountable: Coach-wife-workout partner… they must be serious, honest, with knowledge in fitness & nutrition
  • Set deadlines: This is vital. Every six weeks take new photos and measurements
  • Have a plan in place, a proven and personal one. Not a DVD you buy, that is not personal and will only take you so far
  • Set up a reward system: Example – “Once I reach 140lbs, I am going to go on that vacation to the beach”
  • Have damage control plans in place when you stall, or things go wrong.

This 5 tips will help you on your way. I use all these with my clients and they simply work!
