Motivation---continuing to do something!

Study evidence that works to continue to get results

So many people get started. Studies say the first 6 weeks many can really make some change in performance, weight loss, etc but then after that so many fall off. Others studies talk about what are some key factors to maintaining behviors that are inline with your goals.

Here is what my coaches at The Fitness Pursuit in Grayslake and I have found to work with our clients:

-continue to set long and short term goals

-find something you like to do

-do it with others

-register/pay for something so you have to keep up with your behaviors

-assess, find a way to measure if you are improving or getting worse

-have a non-biased person give you feedback, like a Personal Trainer/Coach

-measure often, step on the scale, do the same route, repeat a race, etc

So many studies and reports are coming out of the affects of obesity, low activity, food choices, etc that we are probably not going to have a choice. Doctors and insurance companies are soon going to have no choice but to hold you accountable or it will cost you. Are your behaviors and body already doing ok or not?
