“The journey to a rockin’ bod
with a kick-ass career
begins with a single workout”
– Lao Tzu
That was one smart philosopher. He knew what was up.
In all seriousness though, this is the place where you’ll get started on your fitness journey while advancing your career.
This program, the resources, and website, admittedly will resemblesome of the things you’ve probably seen before. Why? There’s a lot of really great, time-tested, principles that help people improve their fitness. However, unfortunately, there’s also a whole lot of garbage out there that confuses people.
The program is simple, concise, flexible, and provides you with an actionable, step by step road map to improving your fitness while advancing your career, without giving up your social life and all the things you love. That’s enough literary yammering though, you don’t have time to read a novel right now, so let’s get to the things you need to know, starting with what you can expect with the program.
10 Keys to Success, Now and Forever
You could have the PERFECT program, but if you wouldn’t actually do it what value would it be? The following 10 things are the keys to your success and will allow you to get results while you also worry about other things going on in your life. Are there more than these 10 that are important? Sure. By starting with these though, you’ll be well on your way.
Defining “success” and what it means for you.
You can’t win the game if you don’t know the rules. What are your goals? Why? Why are you doing this in the first place? Start defining what you want to get out of the program and your reasons for doing it and you’ll have a much better chance at success.
Starting as soon as possible.
Do your first workout. Go grocery shopping. Take action, no matter how small, as soon as possible. The sooner you do, the closer you’ll be to your goals.
Matching your behaviors with your desired outcome.
Do you have grand ambitions with this program? Great! You can make some serious progress in a short amount of time IF your behaviors match your goals. With effective exercise done consistently and the right nutrition you won’t have to spend hours upon hours to get your results. Ask yourself these 2 questions when thinking about the outcome you’re trying to achieve:
What are you willing to do to reach your goals?
What are you not willing to do to reach your goals?
Accepting that perfection doesn’t exist. There will be bad days.
You’ll miss a workout you had planned. You’ll eat way too much. This is called life. Though you’ll never be perfect, you can still make progress and you know what progress gets you? The results you want.
Doing something for exercise consistently.
Remember that whole “Perfect program” thing? If you had the perfect program but only followed it once per month it wouldn’t get you very far. Consistency is the name of the game if you want results, you know this, and that means you’ll exercise sometimes when you feel like shit, when you’re traveling, or when it’s generally the last thing on your mind. Not always, but to stay consistent, you will. Like I said though, it’s about doing SOMETHING. You may not have your best workout every day or do a kick-ass hour of weights and hour of cardio (Who has that kind of time?), but to stay consistent your exercise might just be an incline walk, jog around the block, or some bodyweight exercises in your living room. Those little workouts help you stay on track and leave you feeling better than before you started. Cherish those and keep them in your back pocket for those shitty days when you don’t feel like doing a thing.
Yea, no shit Sherlock. I had to include it though, you know why? Because so many people still struggle with this! Look at the obesity rates in the U.S. Are you telling me these people don’t know that they need to eat better to get in better shape? Oh, they know. Knowing and doing are two very different things. This program will help you actually eat better, not just remind you that you need to. You’re welcome.
Yea, use some of this! There are times when you simply will need to stay disciplined, thinking of the bigger picture. Easier said than done? Sure. However, when you work to set up your environment in a way that allows you to have success, it’ll make it much easier on you.
Taking responsibility for your decisions.
You are where you are because of you. Yes, you’ve been influenced by others, but ultimately your decisions have brought you to this point. Don’t blame others for your situation you’re not happy to be in.
“What gets measured, gets managed” is a quote by Peter Drucker who is basically the father of business management, which fits perfectly with fitness success as well. If you really want to improve at something you have to find some type of metrics to measure progress and monitor them consistently. It could be comparing monthly progress pictures of yourself, testing body composition, taking circumference measurements, weighing yourself (Though this has it’s limitations), testing your strength, or numerous other things.
Enjoying the journey.
Okay, okay, maybe that’s cliche, but I’m telling you, you have to accept that this is not a quick fix. Rome wasn’t built in a day (I wasn’t there to prove it, but that’s what I’ve heard). However, when you make progress, it’s just fuel for more progress, taking you to whatever heights you want to go. Just like in your career, where one sale leads to another, consistent good work leads to a raise, or doing well at one job gets you to an even better one. In the end, you have to enjoy the journey because the journey is what you’ll be on the rest of your life.
Through this membership site you have all the tools you need to kick ass with your fitness while still having a life you enjoy. Go get em’ tiger!
