How To Solve The Biggest Health & Fitness Problem Women Face

accountability-300x300
Problem : You have a difficult time staying consistent with your diet, exercise, or healthy lifestyle habits.

 

This is the biggest most women today face when it comes to maintaining good health and fitness. Statistically, around 65% of women (and likely a lot more) struggle with staying consistent.

We’ve all had a go at losing weight and improving our health. Here’s what most women have tried before getting results with us:

  • Weight Watchers
  • Slimming World
  • MyFitnessPal and other calorie counters
  • Crossfit and other group workouts
  • Popular diets like paleo, juice fasts, cleanses, and low-carb
  • Workout books and magazine articles

 

By no means are these “bad” options. They work really well for some people and not for others. But, slowly but surely, most of these methods and tools start to dissolve and fail over time.

Why?

It’s because they only help to solve a surface-level problem.

  • Need somewhere  to exercise? Here you go.
  • Want to know how many calories you eat? Here’s an app to download.
  • What to know the “best” foods to eat? Read this article.

The only problem with surface-level solutions? They only work for a very small amount of time.

The ups and downs of everyday life are not taken in to account with these surface solutions. They don’t take into account the lifestyle you live, your work, your kids, your free-time. Nothing.  And because of that, they don’t help you stay consistent.

 

What do most women do when their consistency drops?

  • Pick another surface solution to follow.

 

How do we change this and become successful?

  • Make yourself accountable to a program.
  • Make yourself accountable to a person.

 

Make yourself accountable to a program.

In an ideal programme, all bases will be covered:

  • Proven results time and again
  • Easy to adapt to your lifestyle (so you can stay consistent and do it even when you’re busy).
  • It’s actually fun (who’s going to exercise if it’s not fun?).
  • A huge, big goal at the end (a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow).

 

The first three points are very important and are the fundamental elements of a solid exercise and nutrition program. But the last one—having something big and positive to shoot for—is often overlooked.

In fact, loads of programs actually do the opposite: they make you feel guilty and bad for “slacking” or for not being an angel when it comes to health and fitness.

So how do you know if a certain program will help keep you accountable?

  1. You need a way to measure your progress and track it on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
  2. You need to follow a structured plan, but still have room to move at your own speed when needed.
  3. You need constant reminders to practice whichever nutrition, exercise, or lifestyle habit you’re currently working on.
  4. You need it to be customizable to your skill levels, goals, and how much time you have available.

Where do you find all this?

Make yourself accountable to a person.

Often, making your self accountable to someone else can be the difference between consistently getting great results or folding to the pressures of work, family, and social stress.

Time and again personal accountability shows itself to be much more important than personal motivation for one simple reason: no one always feels motivated to go make healthy eating choices.

If we’re accountable to another person, we’ll actually have the impetus to follow through with healthy eating and exercise we need to look and feel great.. Furthermore, we’ll do it over and over again even when the going gets tough. (And the going always gets tough at some point.)

That’s why the women who’ve had the most success with us in changing their bodies made themselves accountable to another person.

It could be a friend or workout partner. It could be your spouse. Or if you want to join our Fitterbody Ladies, we’d love to help you too.

The important thing is that you make yourself accountable to somebody and get the help you need. You have a lot on your plate already; why not let someone else show you the way?
