6 Week Challenge Success Tips


6 Week Challenge Success Tips

A 6 Week Challenge is a great chunk of type to develop new healthy habits and to see some real change in your body.  Being apart of a group of people working towards the same goal is an invaluable tool to help people overcome obstacles that are hindering progress.  We have seen huge success from people that have stuck out the 6 Weeks and we have also seen people come 1 week and never come back again.  This is not unique to a 6 Week Challenge, but just health and fitness in general.  After witnessing success and failure I have  3 tips to help you reach your weight loss goals.

  1. Expectations.  Be in reality with where you are and how long it is going to take you to get where you want to go.  Count the cost before beginning.  This is going to be hard work and you need to be prepared for it.  You will  be sore and there are going to be days that you don’t want to come.  Expect this and be prepared to go against your feelings.
  2. Be consistent in diet and workout frequency.  If you eat well and workout consistently you will get results.  You cannot out train a bad diet.  There is no magic formula.  6 Week Challenges aren’t some magic fix to your problem.   This is a tool to help get you on track and it should be used as such.  6 Week Challenges offer structure and support to help you stay the course and continue after.  Don’t do 6 Weeks and quit or go back to Planet Fitness doing what you did before.  I have handfuls of clients that have done our 6 Week Challenge and gone back to their previous gym.  Guess what?  Most have come back or they aren’t working out at all.  I also have handfuls of clients that have continued with us and they are doing amazing.  This is a lifelong project.
  3. Make a list of goals and think about why you are doing it.  Be specific.  I have one guy that has just lost 20 lb and he told us he did this for his health so he could be around for his kids later in life. Find your WHY and you won’t quit!
