Laws of Success with your exercise and nutrition program

March 19, 2012

Spring is on the way and the longer days give many people a renewed sense of energy and many will start a spring training program.  But did you know that 70% of people who start an exercise program drop out within the first two to three months?  These are not good odds!  It’s now widely accepted that the problem has nothing to do with the person but rather with the process.  You see, most people who want to start exercising just start.  Imagine if you wanted to build a house.  You’d start out with an architectural plan first to know exactly what you wanted your house to look like.  Or what if you wanted to start a business?  The banks would require a business plan first, right?  They’d want to ensure that you’ve really thought it through carefully and you’ve got a good plan to enhance success.  Well, these same guidelines apply to exercise.  You’ve got to have a plan for success.  This is why the first few months of your fitness experience are so important.  This is when most people drop out.  You definitely want to focus on getting past this initial stage to the point where you’re experiencing great results – and that alone, will help to motivate you to keep going.  The problem is most people stop exercising before they even had the chance to see the changes to their body.  Let’s not let that happen to you!
