Coach Melissa here, the motivational coach you never knew you needed!
I’ve hijacked the Fit Body Boot Camp blog because I figured I could offer some inspiration to a few of you future boot campers out there…
See, I used to be overweight. I was far from fit. My self-esteem was at an all-time low. It hurt to look at myself in the mirror. I felt lost and hopeless.
Then I saw a Fit Body Boot Camp ad online one day. What did I have to lose? I decided to check it out…
The rest is history. I fell in love with their quick HIIT style workouts and lost a bunch of weight in the first few months. I even learned how to keep that weight off for the long haul…
So what did the trick for me?
Once I got on top of my mentality, I was able to conquer fitness every single day. Mentality is the biggest part of working out. You can’t get down on yourself!
Let’s talk through some of the most common objections and excuses people make when fitness gets the better of them. Trust me, the power of perspective can turn these doubts into opportunities for you.
“My body is soooooooo sore…”
Of course it is! You just worked out!
You’ll always experience some level of pain when you grow. Just think about how awkward puberty is for literally everyone. Yet without puberty, you would never become an adult.
Think of soreness as a blessing, not as a curse. In fact, wear that soreness as a badge of honor.
Soreness is the body growing out of its old infrastructure and into a beautiful, toned new body. YOUR body.
Your muscles need tension to grow. You can’t just drink some magic potion and watch your body morph into shape…
So the next time you’re sore, embrace it as a sign that you’re on the right track, recognize the areas of your body that aren’t sore (if you did legs one day, your arms probably don’t feel that sore), and work out those areas so you can maximize your results.
“I’m not fit like HER. How do you expect me to get fit like her?”
Been there, done that.
If you walk into any “Big Box” gym around the country, you’ll see women with ripped abs, toned waists, and curvy figures. It’s easy to think that you could never be just like them…
All those fit people didn’t just hop out of the womb with six packs and arms of steel. They worked for it!
Fitness and health aren’t some talent that only a few people possess. You can work for that body you want—you just have to stay disciplined!
Don’t think of it as, “I need to be just like THAT woman.” Set your own goals and crush them. Trust the process of getting in shape and you’ll soon be one of those women too.
“Life is getting crazy right now…”
I first would like to say that I hear ya. Life is a whirlwind sometimes.
Here’s what I’ve found in my most successful clients: They all lead very, VERY busy lives too. How do they still get in shape?
They make their health a priority.
When it comes down to sleeping in or exercising, they exercise. Late night dessert? Yep, they’re fine without it. Boot camp after work? They make it a habit.
That’s a tall order when you have to work out for an hour and a half each day. But what if you didn’t have to choose between working out and your hobbies, family time, or sleep?
That’s why Fit Body Boot Camp is the answer for you! Our intense 30 minute workouts burn fat in less time than it takes to cook most good meals. You could literally go to 3 sessions in the span of the average movie!
So what are you waiting for? Fitness is a piece of cake once you get started! Check out Fit Body Boot Camp right here and get your first 3 sessions FREE!
