Having Trouble Hitting You Fitness Goals?
Does this sound familiar. I go to the gym or boot camp classes 2 to 3 times a week and I still don't get the results I want. I work out really hard and still nothing. I am so frustrated I just want to give up.
I am hear to help. I get clients that say things like this all the time. When we started to look at what is going on, it always come down to one thing Consistency! When you only workout 2 to 3 times a week you will not get the results you want.
Let me explain. There are 168 hours in a week. Most people only workout for an hour per workout. That is only 3 hours a week you are working out. That leaves 165 hours that you are doing other thing. Some are important things like sleeping, eating, working and bathing. I am sure that I am forgetting some things.
Lets break it down a little. Let start with working out 3 hours a week leaves you with 165 hours. Sleeping 8 hours a night leaves you with 157 hours. Working lets do 10 hours a day for 5 days a week. giving 2 hours hear for travel and a little overtime. That leaves you at 107 hours a week. Lets say eating 4 hours a day that is 28 hours a week. Leaves you 79 hours a week.
If you just changed you workout to one hour a day. That is an increase of 2 time what you are currently doing. I am not saying that you work out need to be in a gym everyday. I like to go hiking, swimming, walking or you could try some classes. My point is you should be moving more.
