Same Bad Fitness Program, Same Disappointing Results

Change makes us all uncomfortable.......and making changes in habits can sometimes be the toughest thing to do. If your exercise program isn't giving you the results you want then there's a reason. Changes have to be made somewhere or you will continue to be disappointed in your fitness results.

From my experience as a life-long exerciser and personal trainer, there are 2 main roadblocks to people's fitness success:

1. unwilling to change your workout routine and

2. unwilling to change eating habits.

There's many other reasons between those 2 main reasons but let's just look at the bottom line here.....Here's a real life example:

I have a friend who has repeatedly asked me how to burn fat and "get ripped." For the last year, my answer to him has been the same:

1. cut your weight training workout time down from 2 hours to 50 minutes circuit weight training,

2. cut your 60 minute, slow-paced cardio session down to 20 minutes of interval cardio and

3. follow the sample fat-burning meal plans or substitute similar food items that you like.

Actually, his 2 hour workout includes about 45 minutes of socializing.....anyway, his body fat hasn't changed because he is still doing the same things. Bottom line: he has been unwilling to change so he will continue to get the same bad results.

What about you? Are you unwilling to change your workout routine and eating habits? If so, you will be just like my friend----disappointed with your fitness results!

  1. "Change" is the big challenger. The dividing line between status quo and momentum is so often a mental one...

  2. Exactly Heather! Its hard to get out of your comfort zone, especially when it comes to eating and exercising.

  3. How often we see the same people at the gym doing to same cardio-type workout over and over again without noticing measurable results. Improving the quality of foods we put in our bodies would go a long way in improving the quality of the weight-training and cardio work you recommend. I bet if you asked most people who "workout" frequently and are frustrated with their lack of visible results, you could probably trace it back to their eating habits, and his or her inattention to changing those for the better.

  4. Jared....thanks for the comment! Well said!
