I’m going to overlap some ideas I wrote here but today’s pondering is more geared at fat loss than muscle gain.

Getting into the kind of shape that wins admiration is extremely difficult and extremely frustrating at times, especially when we see 18 year old models popping up on our social media daily who look stunning.

Like success in any field I believe that fitness goals begin internally, and to be successful I believe that we need to accept and implement that, the older we get the more true it becomes.

Step 1: Find your WHAT

This is what you would call your “goal”. Let’s be honest here – you already know – at least to some extent what you want to achieve. So take this desire and firm it up, give yourself parameters such as specific targets to reach by a specific date.

Step 2: find your WHY

This is a miracle tool, In fact if anything in the fitness industry deserves the word “secret” it is this oft overlooked process.

Decide WHY you need to achieve your “what”.

There are a few reasons this is important. First and foremost it validates and strengthens your goal to a new level. But perhaps even more important is that it aligns your goals with your personal values… this allows you to reach your goal WITH INTEGRITY.

Step 3: find your HOW

Now it’s time to get to the nuts and bolts of your goals. Use all the information and experience at your disposal!

Deciding how you will achieve your goal is the one part that is fluid within this framework because you might find that a certain method is less effective than another, and that’s all part of the learning process.

Personally I’ve found doing this three step process to be not only effective but extremely fulfilling!
