I Got This One Online Client

1223423123_12312332432_345345345I’m not going to mention her name.

But it starts with a “Steph” and ends with a “anie”.

This lady…

– Has a coaching call with me every month and has never missed a call.

– Checks in and emails me a weekly review of her training and nutrition.

– Eats real food and lots of it – not just carrots and celery sticks.

– Lifts heavy 3 times a week and does cardio another 2-3 per week.

– Is a mother of 2 who wants to be a role model for her kids.

– Has dislocated her shoulder but has complete all the rehab and is now pain free.

The reason I’m pointing her out is because girls like this really represent what it’s like to live the ‘fitness lifestyle’.

I get asked all the time “what’s the FASTEST way to get in shape?”, “How do I get rid of my stomach?”, etc, etc…

And the answer is always the same…

Change your LIFESTYLE.

So in this post I want to show you the 3 most popular habits that girls who lift have, and how you can adopt these into your life…

Habit #1 – They Don’t Buy Junk

You’ve probably heard this before.

Girls who lift know that if they keep junk food in the house it will land on their waist sooner or later.

So they don’t buy any.

Rid your home of chips, cookies, candy, baked goods, pre-packaged snacks and anything else that belongs in a vending machine.

Replace the above with fresh fruit, veggies, nuts and other healthy whole foods snacks.

Habit #2 – Eat

This one may sound simple.

But how many times do you see or hear girls bust their ass in the gym and then go eat a celery stick for a post workout meal?

Then 3 hours later, they are absolutely starving and start to binge eat.

If you train hard. You gotta refuel your body with food – and this keeps the munchies away.

Habit #3 – They Have Priorities

Girls who lift make exercise a priority.

Along with keeping a job, paying the bills and having a social life, exercise is an important part of their lives.

What I’ve found is that fit girls put exercise before leisure time.

Yes, they enjoy leisure, but it is scheduled around their workout time.

Treat exercise time with the same importance that you would as an appointment.

So ditch the excuses, because BAD excuses are worse than none.

And even though excuses make everyone feel better… they change NOTHING.

If you want it, you do it – that’s how my girls do things 🙂

Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Talk soon
