One of the most predominant qualities of my veteran STRONG GIRLS that have successfully transformed their physiques is sharing their enthusiasm by helping others along too.
As everyone knows, dieting is hard. Very hard. It’s profoundly even more difficult if the environment you surround yourself in not geared for success (i.e. consistently eating out with friends, spending late nights at the bar, surrounding yourself around negative individuals, being constantly in the company of people that are not so health conscious, etc.).
Most of my clients come to me looking to loose weight and/or tighten up but what happens over time as they get closer to their goals, they also become influences in their own circles often encouraging others and also inspiring. As they progress with their physiques, the farther along they travel in their personal fitness journey. Their Facebook pages slowly begin to convey messages of inspiration and accomplishment further transitioning into messages of fitness, nutrition, and health. More importantly they move away from behaviours that no longer add value to their health and begin embracing habits that are more inline with their goals.
In contrast, the individuals that struggle the most with their dieting goals are the ones that give into old habits and engage in activities with others that are far removed from their goals. In other words, they continue to feed into the habits that are getting them into more trouble from a health perspective.
If you want to succeed with your fitness goals, help someone else achieve theirs too. When you consistently give others encouragement, when you stay active with friends, and when you help friends/family in finding healthy eating options, then you will exponentially increase your own chances of even surpassing your own goals.
There are no words that can express how proud I am of my team and their commitment to share their knowledge, their best practices, and their struggles. Most importantly they exude enthusiasm when it comes to health and fitness…and it’s infectious. Love my team.
