If you’re reading this, then I assume you’re into fitness in some way, shape, or form.
I’m also going to assume that you currently have a fitness goal that you want to achieve. Trying to lose some fat? Looking to pack on some muscle maybe?
Whatever your goal is, listen up because I’m about to tell you the single most important rule of fitness that you need to know. It doesn’t matter if you’re a complete beginner or have been working out for decades. This rule applies to everyone (Arnold Schwarzenegger included).
After coaching hundreds of clients throughout the years, I’ve come to realize the one determining factor that can make or break a person’s body transformation. It’s what separates those who get results and those who don’t.
The #1 rule of fitness: consistency.
Sure there are a ton of other factors and variables that exist, but none of them matters without consistency.
You can take the best workout program in the world, but if you don’t stick to the workouts for a few months you won’t get anywhere.
You can try Paleo, low-carb, Weight Watchers, Atkins, intermittent fasting, whatever. You’ll lose fat in the first few weeks, but you’ll gain it all back if you go back to your old ways of eating like crap.
You can hire the best trainer in the world, but if you’re looking for results with only 4 sessions it’s not going to happen.
Think about this for a second — when was the last time you stuck to ONE program for more than 3 months? What about 6 months? A year?
Too many people are trying too many different training programs and diets without giving them enough time to reap the benefits they are looking for. Consistency is key. Set training & nutrition goals, build small but sustainable habits that you’ll do for the rest of your life, and then crush your goals.
Until you hit your goals, don’t try anything new. Hire a coach that will keep you accountable if you need to. Stick to one training program, one “diet”, and don’t overanalyze. Do this for at least 12 weeks and I promise that you’ll see results.
