On today’s episode of Making FIT Work we have over 60 years of collective experience in the fitness and nutrition industry between myself and my amazing three guests; Nicole Blasi, Jennifer Kirsch and Lauren Mahoney.
I wanted to kick-off the New Year by diving deep into the biggest reasons most people aren’t getting the results they want in order to help you make some real sustainable changes in 2022.
Nicole Blasi, personal trainer & nutrition coach for 23 years and the co-host of the EatRite Nutrition podcast.
1 Reason: Consistency. In order to build big behavior or nutrition changes in our lifestyle we need to start with small amounts of consistency. Continuously checking those small boxes that will eventually build into bigger more detailed habits that will give us bigger and better results over time.
1 Reason: Not having an Accountability System in place. Jennifer recommends that you find a system or program that offers some measure of accountability. It could be as simple as setting a reminder on your phone, finding a workout buddy, becoming an active part of a fitness community (in-person or online) or investing in a Trainer or Coach.
Lauren Mahoney, certified strength and conditioning specialist who has been working in the fitness industry for 10 years as a 1:1 and group trainer.
1 Reason: Commitment Level. Laura explains how the commitment level must match not only the goal at hand but the lifestyle. For example, committing to 4 workouts a week when realistically 2-3 would be best for your current schedule. Get realistic with your level of commitment in order to stay consistent.
Nina McGoff, certified food and fitness coach. Creator of the HIIT & Lift online training program and host of Making FIT Work.
1 Reason: Overlooking the importance of proper nutrition. No matter what your goals are, you cannot out exercise improper nutrition. You also need proper nutrition to fuel your brain, body and workouts and without it you will eventually crash due to a lack of energy or give up due to a lack of results.
Listen to the full episode for an open discussion about each of these topics along with real solutions on how to overcome these very real mindset blocks that may be the very reason you’re not getting the results you expect.
