If you only do one thing this week, incorporate one of these recommendations and promise yourself you’ll stick to it. Ideally, we are creating our bodies to be lean, fat burning machines, with optimal cognitive and internal health that can operate at peak physical performance. That’s ideal, not necessarily so practical for most to achieve over 12 weeks. It’s a complete lifestyle shift rooted in healthy choice is the best choice kind of mindset. For everyone the journey to healthy is different. It may include making a new addition to your lifestyle, incorporating new training disciplines, taking supplements, learning to substitute with healthier alternatives, and for many it means cutting things out like salt, refined sugars and processed foods. Sustaining the healthy look and feel requires learning a new behavior that allows you to still enjoy life and all of your indulgences in the cleanest way possible that is gentle on your body. There are many different approaches and methods to reaching this ideal state. The most effective approach is to partner with a personal trainer who can work with you to deeply understand and consider the fitness regimen and nutrition plan that will yield the best results for you. Everyone’s journey starts with one simple step. Whether it’s just reading these weekly newsletters to better inform your health choices, listening to our new podcast for a deeper dive on many of the topics we explore here each week, or using the Be Exceptional Fitness App you’re showing your commitment to self-improvement. The most important part is consistency and your will to trust the process.
