This is wisdom that you are going to be able to start applying to your fitness plan TODAY. It came from a conversation during a core & mobility onsite class. It's written in 3 C's so you can remember long after you shut down this webpage :)
As we were talking through (during planks on the ball hahah) what we needed big picture from our health and fitness routine, Joe started riffing with these 3 insights to help us! Here they are-- enjoy.
Joe’s 3 factors to put in place to get the most of your fitness program:
Number 1, he said it has to be Convenient for people. i.e. On your way home from work you go directly to the gym, your class, etc.
Number 2, he said it needs to be Cost-effective (for you). Put it in your budget. One tip, I use when I am paying for coaching is to build in 2-3 hours of "work" that is tied into my coaching fees. For example, if I am meeting with my coach for one hour, I put 1-3 more hours on my calendar that same week. During those additional hours, I am committed to practicing, taking action, and doing the work from our coaching session together.
Number 3, Joe said, when he was younger he could get away with just moving through the workout space without regard for balancing muscle groups and if the plan was efficient for his goals. He said "not anymore." He sees the value in being Coached in a Class (where the instructor or personal trainer is being purposeful with the various variables and goals at play).
So let’s put someone doing our Fitness Inspired Signature Program through Joe’s 3 C’s:
Number 1, Fitness Inspired is Convenient for you. Waking up & Working out is convenient for this Fitness Inspirer. She is able to go downstairs while her kids are still asleep. Log in to the Fitness Inspired Zoom room and meet her Fitness Inspired friends there. She doesn’t lose any time, driving anywhere and she doesn’t have to find a babysitter to come over early morning when her partner is gone at work. This is an appointment on her calendar on Tues/Thurs/Fri 5:45-6:30am. She is committed to this time, and it creates camaraderie and gives her people to be accountable to each week. (Some Fitness Inspirers opt for Mon-Fri live workout at the same time. This creates an opportunity for an up-level, growth, sleep hygiene, additional accountability to name a few). The morning sets the tone for her to have started well (workout, community, hydration). She goes into her family and professional life with good energy and momentum.
Number 2, Fitness Inspired is Cost-effective for you. It’s personal attention and real-time form and level help at group class prices. It’s the perfect blend of personal training expertise and effectiveness and group energy. This particular Fitness Inspirer, also does the trick of making it even more cost effective by scheduling with her fellow Fitness Inspired signature program friends for a virtual weekend and mid-week workout together by streaming together one of our Fitness Inspired Library Workouts. She is also, making this cost-effective by growing her showing up muscle by setting a goal to get 20 workouts in a month. This is a GREAT Fitness Inspired milestone to strive for that improves your health, helps you hit suggested exercise amounts for each week for your mood, energy, health. Also, not only does hitting this milestone help with cost-effectiveness, your health (what can be a better investment than that), but also is correlated with being a high performer in your purpose/profession too.
Number 3, You get Fitness Inspired Coaching in Class. We design our programs, classes, and adapt in real-time to the Fitness Inspirers in the class on purpose. Having the class community (you are known, seen, and encouraged), holding space for you to commit and be accountable to, and to be coached by instructors who know the exercise science, and the motivation of exercise research too!
