Let’s just get right down to it!
Social media is currently flooded with 2022 goals, resolutions, focus words, gym selfies, and so much more hype. Every commercial or ad you see is promoting a product which claims to make your life so much better, but let me tell you the real secret to change and amazing achievement. It does not matter how fancy a post you write or even what mic dropping quote you share, it’s about REAL ACTION!
We live in a world of highlight reels, quick fixes, and, unfortunately, a lot of deception. As we enter a new year, I encourage you to be REAL and place ACTION steps to your dreams. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If you want real success then put in the real work and seek out real knowledge!
My passion is helping people achieve their best level of health and fitness, and it just so happens this is one of the main goals people have when thinking of improvement for a new year. As a society, we have never had more easily accessible information or “helpful” products available for pretty much anything, but especially when it comes to the human body. This is incredible and can be quite useful, but I’m here to tell you that although we learn more every day, some things will never change! Be careful who you listen to and what you read. Be truly educated, and don’t get caught up in someone else’s agenda.
There are a few key components which will ALWAYS hold true when it comes to not only making a healthy change, but maintaining it. Real, all-natural, whole food combined with consistent exercise, raising your heart rate for at least 30 minutes a day, will ALWAYS stand the test of time and create the best, most healthy version of you possible. Most nutritional supplements and cookie-cutter gym workouts which do not raise your heart rate to a fat-burning level will not give you what your body is capable of achieving. All those products offering you a quick weight loss and energy increase are only a short-term fix and not the quality-of-life improvement you need.
I believe this new year is going to bring about some amazing things in our world, but with great knowledge and great opportunity comes great responsibility. We need to carefully consider our choices when it comes to our bodies, and if improvement in health and fitness is TRULY what you crave, take REAL ACTION and leave the quick fixes and fads to those who are not capable of keeping real! Take the time to seek out real information on nutrition and fitness, surround yourself with positive, like-minded people, and don’t let anything stop you from taking action to achieve your goals in 2022!
In the coming weeks, we will be tackling real all- natural nutritional components in detail and providing a start for what it takes to navigate a true, sustainable lifestyle change.
