Do you jump from running one day to and aerobic class the follow day to spinning the next?
Do you follow a diet for a few days then jump to another one because you’re impatient? It’s too hard? Or you’re bored?
Do you follow random workouts and eat random meals?
How do you expect to measure progress if you never stick with anything long enough? How can you set realistic goals? How will you ever know if you have reached your goals?
You will not see changes in fat loss, strength, lean muscle or even metabolism if you don’t follow a structured exercise and nutrition plan consistently for a specific amount of time.
I have been in the fitness and nutrition field for over the last 15 years and I have seen 3 main forms of exercise and nutrition ADD:
1) Changing your workout too much ADD
I see this one quite often. If someone is doing a Zumba class on Monday, then a Cycling class on Tuesday, and then a bootcamp workout on Wednesday, then Pilates on Thursday. There is NO consistency there. There is no structure. Though I truly believe all exercise and activity are beneficial if it’s done safely and it’s not over done…yet one will NOT see great results with the weekly plan above. Why? Because it’s too random and not balanced. Unbalanced and random exercise will give you unbalanced and random results. It will be very hard to see measurable changes in a plan like this.
2) Changing your gym/personal trainer/bootcamp too much ADD
You just started with a new trainer with lots success stories and things are going well but your BFF just told you about a hot new bootcamp in town. So you jump ship and quit working with the trainer and join the bootcamp. Two weeks into the bootcamp you and your friend get impatient and super sore and tired give up and decide to do this hot new yoga class everyone is talking about instead. So you decide that this might be the workout for you so you ditch the bootcamp for yoga. Do you see the problem? You never give anything time to WORK! I have no problem with someone trying to find a program that is the best fit for them. However, jumping around from the latest fitness craze to the next great workout fad, to the new sexy aerobic dance class…. will get you know where and is a recipe for disaster if you are looking for great results.
3) Changing your diet ADD
You have tried Weight Watchers for a month, and then Nutrisystem for two weeks, then went Paleo for another week. Yet none of them worked for you! Right? Why? Well either you’re using a flawed diet program or you are just NOT giving it time to work. What you really need is a balanced nutrition plan that supports your specific goals and not a random fad diet plan you saw on tv or online.
The best way around workout and nutrition ADD is having a structured and balanced exercise and nutrition program customized to your specific body and goals. A specific and customized plan that you follow consistently is guaranteed to give you the best possible results in the least amount of time.
You came to the right place! 😉
