Think Positive and Get Fit

Your mindset plays a big role when it comes to getting and staying fit.

In the same way that an app on your phone is limited by the functions that have been programmed into it, your body is limited by the messages sent by your mind.

If you have the goal of changing your body for the better by dropping pounds and increasing your muscle tone, the first thing to do is to begin with your mindset. It’s a step that far too many well-meaning folks skip in their quest for an improved, sexier body.

My experience has led me to observe that my successful clients who experience the most amazing body transformation results are the ones that abide by the following Positive Mindset Habits…

1) Positive Mindset Habit #1: Stop Beating Yourself Up

Most of us compare where we are today with where we ultimately want to be.

If you’re a size 18 with the goal of one day being a size 6, what runs through your mind when you look in the mirror?

With a positive mindset you would look in the mirror and notice the improvements and progress that you’ve made towards your ultimate goal, no matter how subtle.

With a negative mindset you would look in the mirror and only see the gap between what you are today and what you ultimately want to be, and you’d beat yourself up about it.

To be successful with your body transformation, focus on positive improvements and every small step towards your bigger goal.

2) Positive Mindset Habit #2: Do not EVER consider what others think of You

My best clients don’t give one hoot what others think of them. They are focused on their own journey and realize that the only opinion that matters about them is their own.

This small mental shift makes a huge difference when it comes to getting results.

Maintain your focus and energy on your daily fitness goals and resist the urge to compare your progress with others. Do not attempt to decipher what others are thinking about you, because the only opinion about you that really matters is your own.

3) Positive Mindset Habit #3: ONLY Think Positive Thoughts About Yourself

Nothing good ever comes from thinking poorly of yourself. I simply can’t emphasize this point enough: Negative self-talk is one of the reasons that most attempts at weight loss fail.

On the flip side, those who make a daily practice of positive self-talk, by encouraging themselves and focusing on every small step made towards their goal, see incredible results.

Keeping a positive attitude about yourself will not only help you lose the weight, it also helps you to keep it off in the long run.

Remember that an effective exercise plan is vital to getting and staying in phenomenal shape – and I’m here to help you do just that. Call or email me now to get started on my best fitness plan.

Being Positive Pays Off

Since negative thoughts have been proven to reduce fitness results, make it a practice to reject any negative thought about yourself that comes into your head.

When a negative thought floats into your mind immediately respond with, “That’s simply not true,” and then remind yourself of the last positive goal that you accomplished.

Once you do this enough times your mind will stop coming up with negative thoughts to send you, making positive progress quicker and easier.
