It’s about gritting you teeth and following your nutrition plan – even if you don’t want to.
If that sounds like hard work then let me throw another quote at you...
“Do something today that you’re future self will thank you for"
I don’t know who said that but it motivates me.
And it helps me be more disciplined.
What we do or don’t do today won’t change the here and now much but it will change what happens to us tomorrow, the day after and the day after.
It’s about doing things consistently, even when you don’t want to.
Like saving money today for the house you’ll buy tomorrow.
It’s like the medical student studying until 4am because when they pass the exams to achieve their dream and become a doctor.
Do something today that your future self will thank you for.
If that resonates with you and if you’re serious about making REAL changes in your life then I strongly recommend you DO these three things.
The first is to set a goal.
You need to know where you’re going and you need to be able to measure how close you are to your goal.
Take measurements, keep score and review these weekly.
Second, find an accountability partner someone you can rely on and share the journey with.
The positive pressure of having someone can drastically increase your chance of success.
What you do need is someone who’s going to make sure you’re doing the work, supporting you when you need support and shouting at you when you need to be shouted at. (this is why accountability coaching is such a big part of our program)
Last but not least - be accountable to a group.
Just look at the success and popularity of our personal training program
Its not just an exercise class; they’re getting individual attention but also have camaraderie and are working towards a common goal. Imagine working out with people just like you…seeing a women in her 50s doing something that she couldnt do 3 weeks earlier is so motivating!
In the group you push yourself more so you’re not the weakest link and you push yourself to make sure to keep pace with everyone else (and to keep our trainers happy).
Strange as it may seem - we’re social beings and working in a group triggers our basic instinct to fit in. And results show that!
Let me summarize this for you:
Write down your goals
Be accountable to yourself.
Find an accountability partner.
Join our personal training program
It’s all simple stuff (like the best advice always is).
Most of the time we get wrapped up in
What the scale says
Do we need to be doing cardio or not
Is the workout we are doing at home working
How your clothes fit
That we forget that it goes way beyond those tangible things.
How confident do you feel right now?
How much more confident would you feel if you got the above in line?
Well that's what Anna has now...a new sense of confidence
She built that confidence thru little wins along her fitness journey
With more confidence, Anna can do things she didn't think were possible.
What would you do with more confidence?
Put on a two piece bathing suit?
Buy clothes that you couldn't even think of wearing now?
Actually, get in family pictures without being embarrassed
Get attention from your spouse
You can do anything you want and fitness is the lock and key to having it all!
If you are interested in finally having the confidence you desire call 5162291438 and we can go over the details!
Hate to be the one to say it but
ℍ𝕖𝕣𝕖 𝕚𝕤 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕙𝕒𝕣𝕕 𝕥𝕣𝕦𝕥𝕙
𝕆𝕟 𝕨𝕙𝕪 𝕪𝕠𝕦𝕣 𝕓𝕠𝕕𝕪 𝕚𝕤𝕟’𝕥 𝕔𝕙𝕒𝕟𝕘𝕚𝕟𝕘
Despite your best efforts
1️⃣You aren’t in a calorie deficit because you are sneaking bites, licks, and sips, and you “eat the same thing every day so you don’t need to log it”
These calories add up really fast! Licks, sips, and bites can add up to 300 extra calories every day!
2️⃣You are paralyzed but what the scale says
You let the scale dictate your feelings…if your weight spikes up from water you freak out and then get frustrated and cheat. Then you feel guilty and start again on Monday
3️⃣You care more about “burning more calories doing cardio” than lifting heavyweights
Cardio is very reactive not proactive! Let’s say you get sick and go to the dr
The dr gives you antibiotics to get rid of the cold
That’s what cardio is…the antibiotics
But how did you get sick in the first place?
It’s because you don’t eat your fruits and veggies and your immune system is weak!
So weight training is like fruits and veggies! Weight training retains muscle which helps your metabolism and overall body!
Are you ready for this hard truth?
4️⃣You are impatient, inconsistent, and “all or nothing”
Sorry to be the one to say it but too many people think if they diet for 1 week they should drop more weight than they think.
When you lose weight at a healthy rate…it’s slow .5-2lbs a week of pure body fat is ideal!
So if you want to lose 20lbs of body fat that would take you 20-40 weeks! 20-40 Weeks of CONSISTENT work!
20-40 Weeks of being 100%! If you comply 50% it would take double the time!
This is why we teach our clients how to make this a lifestyle. This is why we give them educational courses and explain to them these hard truths!
If you are unhappy with how you look despite your efforts you need to take a good look in the mirror and these 4 big things.

152 ᴅɪꜰꜰᴇʀᴇɴᴛ ᴅɪᴇᴛꜱ!!!
Did you know that the average person over their life does 152 different diets!!
That averages out to around 3 per year when you become an adult!
What does this tell us?
It tells us that most people jump from diet to diet looking for a long-term solution.
The problem is most diets are not set up to be a long-term solution!
Do you really think the keto diet was designed to followed for eternity? No!
Sure you can follow it for some time but I promise it’s not sustainable forever! I mean seriously do you think you could never have another slice of pizza again?!
The problem is these diets don’t even work short term…the issue occurs during the “rebound” phase…this is the point where people get comfortable and start gaining the weight back…how many people that you know who swore by a “diet” only to see them a couple of months later heavier than ever!
Stop trying to look for “another diet” to follow and just join us in learning EXACTLY how to eat for life!
The best personal trainers in long island teach you how to make nutrition a lifelong habit! So you never have to jump from diet to diet again!
