How To Start Your Fit Journey

Tis the season to get it right!

Do you know when I get the bulk of my new clients?

If you said January and September, then you are correct. It seems like the world is ready for a reboot and desiring change. However, most of us will come running out of the gate full speed when we should come out crawling. I know you’re excited to start a new plan and looking forward to a speedy transformation. But the fact of the matter is the harder you come out, the quicker you crash and burn.

So I hope you follow my guide below so you can succeed!

How to Start Your Fit Journey

After receiving an ALL CLEAR from your doctor, take a 25-minute fittest, so you can better gauge where your starting line should be. A fit test will consist of 4-8 different exercises and engaging in each move for 1 minute. During that minute, we are keeping track of the amount you can reach. 

 For instance, my fitness test looks something like this;

  1. Push-ups
  2. Sit-ups
  3. Squats
  4. Jump and jacks
  5. Knee tucks (jumping or lifting each leg one at a time)
  6. Jump rope
  7. Running/walking a mile (a timed mile)

This is a typical test that I would give someone in the beginning stages of a good health plan and not someone looking to take their current journey up a significant notch.

What Do You Do After The Fittest?

After the fittest, you will be sore and questioning why yourself—wondering why you are starting this journey. That’s completely normal and to be expected. But you have to throw those thoughts right out the window and began to think more POSITIVELY, or you will fail.

Began a One Week Mission

Take this journey one week at a time and dedicate yourself to completing 25 minutes each day of circuit training. You should pick 3 or 4 exercises and do them 4 or 5 times for 30-60 seconds each. Limit your breaks to one break per rotation. 

Example:

  1. Burpees
  2. Jump and Jacks
  3. Forward lunge 30 seconds
  4. Back Lunge 30 seconds
  5. Plank 
  6. Rest for 60 seconds and then repeat

After completing this initial phase, you will be ready to crush week 2!

The first week is the most challenging, so you are ready to be beast through your journey like a bull if you can complete it!

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!
