The Master Skill of Success

Well,  the first week of the new year is here. Here is a quick post on how to reach your goals. At the bottom of this post I already shared with you my goals and resolutions for this year. Please share with me some of yours.

In a famous study in 1953, the graduating seniors of a major university were asked if they had written goals, and plans to achieve them, after they left the university.

1953rosenbergsons1953-thumb-468x3451
It turned out that 3 percent had written goals and plans. 14 percent had goals but they were not written. The other 83 percent had no goals or plans at all, aside from getting out of university and going on vacation that summer.

Twenty years later in 1973, they followed up on the graduates in this study and asked them, among other things, about their financial situations. They found that the 3 percent of students who had clear, written goals and plans upon graduation were worth more than the entire 97 percent of graduates put together.

What does this experiment have to do with your fitness goals?

EVERYTHING

You see before we start an exercise plan, we must write down our fitness goals.

This automatically starts to program your subconscious towards achieving your goal.

Imagine that you have two drivers, each with a brand new Mercedes-Benz.

They both set to travel across the country toward a distant destination.

One sets off with no road map, navigation, nothing.

The second driver takes the time to plan his trip carefully using road map, navigation and getting advice from people who have traveled that path.

Which driver do you think will reach his destination on schedule??

The first driver might NOT even reach his destination.

Your fitness goals are pretty much the same.

People with clear, specific goals and plans that they work from each day, accomplish on the average, ten times the result as others who don’t have a clear idea of where they are going or when they want to get there.

My First Month at Fitness Concepts

Hi Sam,

blog-kathleen-sam1

Yes, it’s been about a month since I started and since then not only do I have more energy than before but I have noticed than my jeans and clothes are a bit loose no matter how many times I’ve actually put them in the dryer.

I have had only good compliments from my husband who is so supportive and from my family members and friends.

They have noticed that my tummy has gone down, my face has gotten slimmer and have said that my skin is glowing.

It makes me feel good not only about myself but It gives me confidence in my trainer and your company that I have made the right decision in signing on.

I won’t lie that there are days where I feel discouraged only because I see myself every day and It seems like the mirror is lying and that I want to reach my goal much faster.

I know that it takes time and effort in getting there. It really is a good thing that I have appointments with my trainer, Gina cause if not, I would not be able to do this on my own.

Prior to signing on with Fitness Concepts, I have visited other health clubs like 24 hour fitness and LA fitness to determine which would be a good fit for me and with all the research that I’ve done on my own, your company is not only result oriented but your staff are very knowledgeable, fit and friendly.

I would also like to add that where, at any health club would you be able to not only meet and see the owner on a regular basis, receive daily emails, updates and health information, who is very personable and make clients feel like they really matter?

Only at Fitness Concepts. I like the fact that someone can’t just join Fitness Concepts to work out on their own but rather paired with a trainer to make sure that they achieve their goals. That’s what sets you apart from the rest.

Thank You for your concern and I wish your business success !

Motivated, Kathleen Miyashita

Dr. Sam: Kathleen, Thank you for your positive attitude and the willingness to follow the program. I have no doubt that you will get excellent results for months to come.  We truly appreciate you and KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

Lose Weight While You Sleep

Anyone who has watched television after 10pm has seen ads for fat-burning potions that promise to melt off unwanted pounds while you watch TV, read a book or sleep. However, while you know that there is no magic potion to help you lose weight in the La-Z-Boy, there are steps that you can take to help your body burn more calories every day and lose weight faster-yes, even as you sleep.

The secret to better calorie burning is in raising your resting energy expenditure-your metabolism- the amount of calories you burn every moment as you live and breathe. Sometimes in our 30’s, our metabolism starts slowing down at a rate of 5% every decade- a seemingly small decline, but one that can add up to more than 10 extra pounds’ worth of calories a year if you’re not careful.

Why the metabolism meltdown? Muscle loss. Muscle tissue burns about five times as many calories each day-even when you’re not exercising-than fat tissue does. Unless you take action, by the time you’re 65 it’s possible that you will replace half of your lean body mass with twice as much body fat.

MAKE SOME MUSCLE

“Resistance training probably is the best long term method for increasing resting energy expenditure,” says metabolism researcher Gary R. Hunter. If you work every major muscle group twice a week, you can replace 5 to 10 years’ worth of muscle loss in just a few months. That new lean muscle tissue will boost your resting metabolism. Plus you’ll also burn about 200 calories by performing your strength training routine and your metabolism will stay revved up for about 48 hours afterward.

EAT TO LOSE

Exercise always works better if you eat right. You can complement your calorie-burning efforts with these strategies…

Eat breakfast. According to a study by researches at the George Washington University in Washington, DC, skipping breakfast can cause your resting metabolic rate to 5%. Eat a morning meal-oatmeal, yogurt and fruit provide a good protein-carbohydrate blend-and your metabolism will return to normal.

Get protein with every meal. Protein not only makes you feel full faster than carbohydrates, but also takes more energy for your body to digest, so it gives you a slight metabolic boost. Some good sources are fish, lean meats, poultry and legumes.

Eat frequent meals. Whenever you deprive your body of food for too long, it goes into survival mode, slowing your metabolism and hording calories. Eat regular, healthy meals-along with one or two healthy snacks in between.

Drink plenty of water-and make it cold. In a study from Germany, researchers reported that drinking water boosts your body’s calorie burning rate by 30%. Ten minutes after 14 men and woman drank just over a pint of water, their metabolism sped up, and within 40 minutes, it reached a peak burning stage that lasted more than one hour. Since the metabolism spike is partly due to the body’s efforts to warm the water you drink, cold water works best.

Drink green tea. Researchers from Switzerland found that 6 out of 10 men who took a green tea supplement-the equivalent of one cup of green tea-three times a day with their meals burned about 80 more calories during the following 24 hours than those who took a caffeine pill or a dummy pill. They believe the tea’s flavonoids enhance deigestive efficacy.
