You don’t have to leave your home or come to Wholly You Fitness in Oceanside, CA, to achieve your fitness goals. Getting fit is all about having the right plan for your needs and consistency. It’s important to achieving any type of goal, including your fitness goal. Anything of significance wasn’t created overnight, but took doing the same repetitions daily, checking your progress, adjusting and repeating. Consistency may seem obvious and simple, but it’s one of the core requirements to every success in life, whether in the gym or life in general.
Developing good habits is part of succeeding at your goal.
If your goal is to save $100,000, for most people, it means putting a small sum away every week. It’s normally not feasible to achieve that type of savings in a few weeks or a month. The same is true when developing a strong, healthy body. You can’t workout once and expect to see results or eat one healthy meal and hope to lose weight. It’s making small changes along the way and sticking with those changes until they become a habit. Good habits that direct you toward your goal provide the foundation to reaching that goal.
Fitness goals require consistency.
If you aren’t training on a consistent basis, your body doesn’t adapt as well and habits aren’t formed. One key to fitness success is having daily habits that help your body get stronger and fitter. If you’re consistent with your training, you’ll see success quicker and form habits that keep you fit. Every workout session, small changes are achieved. Those changes all add up to bigger changes, such as developing muscle, endurance and flexibility.
Bodily changes produced by consistency include becoming stronger.
When you’re consistent, your body slowly develops stronger tendons and ligaments, more capillaries in the muscles and improves use of fat as energy, oxygen intake, strength and endurance. Your body can’t change overnight. Each small change builds on other small changes, but you have to do what it takes to achieve those changes on a consistent basis or you lose ground. In other words, the hardest part of getting fit is showing up every day to workout.
- Every workout you complete is one small step toward your goal, one brick in building the body you want. Each workout becomes easier to do and showing up becomes more of a habit.
- The more you do something, the more natural it feels. We are all creatures of habit. Studies show that to develop a habit, you have to do something for approximately 68 days.
- Consistency is about making one small change until you feel comfortable and then adding another small change. Each new change builds on the previous one. Small changes can’t occur if you’re inconsistent.
- Consistency also means dietary consistency. It’s about choosing healthier food options on a regular basis. You’ll be amazed at how your tastes change the more you do it. Giving up food with added sugar, for instance, can help you realize just how sweet fresh fruit tastes.
