We still got in a decent workout but the little director was fully satisfied with the final video.
I hope you got motivated and now are ready to join BBG to workout, eat properly and by marry.
You’ve heard that being fit is all about the lifestyle, and not the quick fix, so today I’d like to give you a glimpse the habits that fit people have. These following seven habits are held by successfully fit people…wonder if you could apply a few to your own life.
1. They See Each Day with Perspective
Fail to meet your fitness goals today? Move on. Tomorrow is another day to make smarter decisions. When you wake up, rededicate yourself to your fitness goals without beating yourself about whatever mistakes you made in the past. After all, you can’t change what you did yesterday. All you can control is right now. So get to it!
2. They Know Their Bodies
When you finish a workout, you should feel good. If you don’t, then something needs to change. Either your diet or routine is throwing you off. Fit people know how everything they do affects their body and they take steps to avoid those things that make them not feel and perform their best. Learn how your body responds and care for it accordingly.
3. They Find Ways around the Reasons
If you’ve ever wondered why you can’t quite get fit, it may be your proclivity for caving to pressure. And that pressure may be self-induced. Fit people do not give into excuses for why they shouldn’t exercise. Quite the contrary. They are continually finding reasons why they should hit the gym and find pockets of time to do it—even if the trip to the gym is shorter than usual.
4. They Eat and Sleep Well
Study after study has shown the benefit of eating whole, unprocessed foods. It provides energy and strength, helps you feel full throughout the day, and makes your time in the gym as fruitful as possible. Getting good sleep is equally as important, as it keeps all your bodily systems in rhythm. Put these two fit activities together and you’re well on your way to optimal fitness.
5. They Track Progress
For some, keeping tabs on health progress is about as exciting as watching paint dry. Once you get into the routine, however, you will become a believer in the power of tracking your progress. Tracking serves to both reward and motivate you, as you see that the countless hours in the gym and smart food choices lead to a healthier weight and greater strength—a.k.a. better overall fitness and health.
6. They Think during Exercise
It can be easy to mindlessly run on a treadmill at the gym if you’re not careful. Just remember that fit people don’t do such a thing. They’re very intentional about everything they do at the gym. This means if you want to be fit, you should put some brainpower into what you include in your workout and how you perform each repetition. This allows you to get maximum benefit from your gym time and reduces the risk of injury.
7. They Lean on a Trainer
The final thing fit people do is rely on someone with lots of knowhow in the realm of fitness. This is why my clients have such a high success rate in achieving their goals – because I make sure that they stick with it! I have a sincere interest in your overall health and well-being and know how to help you reach the goals that can seem so far away when you’re trying to achieve it on your own.
Can you remember a time when you felt completely discouraged with your body? It’s easy to beat yourself up when the body that you have is miles from the one you want. When negative emotions flood over you resist the urge to get down on yourself, rather turn the tides in your favor. You may have heard the expression ‘emotion creates motion’. This is a very powerful tool. Channel your dissatisfaction with your body into ‘motion’. Take control of your body and put a plan into action.

Please consult with your doctor or health care practitioner before starting this or any fitness program.
1. Remember Why You Started
In the middle of a workout, it can be hard to push through another set of lunges, squats, or deadlifts. Don’t let the difficulty stop you. Remember why you’re there in the first place—the resolution you made at the beginning of the year, the desire to be healthier than you’ve ever been, the plan to trim extra pounds off your frame. Whatever the reason, keep this front and center to stay the course.
2. Speak Positive Truths
A few weeks before you felt like giving up, you could take on the world. In that mindset, you were continuously telling yourself that you could tackle whatever monsters showed up at the gym. What’s different now? Remind yourself over and over that you can do it! Then take your words to heart and get back on the treadmill and under the barbell.
3. It’s Just a Valley
Like all of life, the desire to work out comes in waves. Yesterday, there was nothing you’d rather do. Today, working out is the last thing you would do if given a choice. So don’t give yourself a choice. Because as difficult as it may be today, once you knock out this routine, tomorrow may be the day you fall in love with exercise all over again.
4. Play It Loud
Having problems staying focused in the gym? Get back on track by turning up you favorite workout tracks. By making it loud enough to drown out the distracting noises all around you, you may find that you become more engaged in your routine and have greater endurance during each day’s workout. Should you find both of these because of your music, don’t be surprised. Researchers have found the exact same benefits.
5. They Expect You to Quit
Over the years, you may have made big plans. Whether to travel the world, change the world, drop a bad habit, or pick up a good one, your friends have seen you fail at more than one attempt. Or maybe they’ve failed at their own attempts. Whatever the cause, they doubt you’ll succeed. Walking away from one workout may not seem like a big deal, but it can lead to a lifetime of walking away, ultimately proving the naysayers right.
6. Look at the Ladies
Or the guys. Whoever gives you motivation to look and feel better, keep them in mind when you feel like giving up. Married with kids? Keep your spouse in mind. Because while you may have already landed the best-looking guy or gal around, nothing says, “I love you” like continued dedication to look your best for your sweet thing.
7. Eat Well
Getting fit and losing weight often go hand in hand. However, if you think you can increase your fitness while also cutting the calories you’re consuming, you may be mistaken. If your body doesn’t get enough good fuel, you’re not going to feel like doing much of anything—especially rigorous exercise. So be sure to fuel up properly before and after your workout to keep your body working on all cylinders.
8. Get to Bed
No matter what time of day you work out, you’re going to fall flat if you don’t get the shuteye you need. Not only does sleep give you energy to get through the day, but it also helps keep your body in rhythm so it reacts properly when pushed. Hit the hay at a decent hour each night and watch your urge to quit go away like a bad dream.
9. Picture the New You
I know you can see it. You, at your goal weight, tight, trim and looking like a million bucks. Don’t lose sight of this picture, until it becomes the reality that you see in the mirror every day. You have what it takes to become your best self – I know this because I’ve seen scores of my clients before you achieve greatness. Don’t lose sight of your potential – I know I won’t.
If you aren’t yet one of my clients, then take this opportunity to do something wonderful for yourself. Call or email today to get started on the most effective fitness program that you’ll ever find.
Remember that…Winners never quit and quitters never win.

Has your exercise routine gotten stale?
Boredom with your routine quickly leads to shorter and shorter workouts, and then before you know it you’re skipping the gym altogether.
While it’s common knowledge that the most effective exercise routines aren’t routine at all, most of us stumble through the same exercises every time we hit the gym. And then we wonder why our results are lackluster.
In order to really see results your routine must continuously change and challenge your muscles in new ways. Here are 5 ways to refresh your existing workout routine in order to see quicker and more dramatic results…
Refresh #1: Circuit Training
The days of doing single sets of each exercise are over, now it’s all about circuit training. Increase your workout intensity by creating a circuit with 4 exercises and moving quickly between each one. Circuits will keep your heart rate up for longer periods at a time and will force your muscles to work double time.
Always choose different exercises to be included in your circuit, to really keep up the intensity and the challenge. Also vary the resistance and increase the load at each session.
Refresh #2: Go Heavier
Most of us grab the same weights each time that we exercise, simply out of habit. Unfortunately this is one habit that is seriously hindering your results. Next time that you reach for a set of dumbbells grab heavier ones. This will force you to do fewer repetitions, and will challenge your muscles with greater intensity.
Always use a spotter when using a heavier weight than you’re used to.
Refresh #3: One Side at a Time
Do you find yourself doing presses, curls, raises and squats with both arms/legs at the same time? Increase the challenge and focus by singling out each arm and leg alone. Focus all of your effort and concentration on that single movement and be sure to increase the weight as you’re able.
Have you tried single legged squats lately? The act of using one leg forces all of your core stabilizing muscles to pitch in. Start without any weight at all, simply focus on your form and range of motion. You’ll be surprised how sore you feel the next day!
Refresh #4: Pump Up Music
Do you have a personal exercise playlist? This is a quick way to instantly add some pep to your workout. Spend time selecting each song to add to the playlist. These songs should be ones that get your toes tapping and get you in the mood to move. Songs with a strong beat are always a good choice.
Make your playlist long enough to cover your entire workout time. It’s great to have fun, upbeat songs without any repeats. Unless you have a specific song that really gets you going – in that case play it on repeat!
Refresh #5: Know Yourself
Are you highly competitive? Then the best way to push yourself during your next workout is to exercise with someone who is in a little better shape than you. You’ll spend the workout pushing yourself to new heights.
Are you happiest in nature? Then move your workout to the great outdoors. Find a new and challenging outdoor activity to immerse yourself in.
Are you a social person? Then structure your workouts around a group of likeminded, fit individuals. Don’t try to go at it alone.
Tap into that unique part of yourself that make you tick and cater your workout time in a way that best suits your needs. You’ll be happier with your results and you’ll be more likely to stick with it for a longer period of time.
Use these quick and effective workout refreshers in your routine to instantly see improved results. Don’t forget to change things up often, and to always keep your muscles guessing.
If designing and redesigning your workouts doesn’t sound like something you want to spend time figuring out, don’t sweat it, let me do the work for you. My programs are specially designed to blast fat and to build muscle in all the right places.
And you’ll never get bored or do the same routine twice when you’re working out with me!
