What Is The Code You Live By?
Our code is like our operating system. We all have one when it comes to fitness, health and nutrition whether we know it or not. These are our unique habits and conduct we have in regards to exercise, physical fitness and exercise. For most of us this is based on what we believe is going to work for our particular goals. Most people’s Fitness Code is at least somewhat influenced by marketing and influencer’s sometimes for better and sometimes for worse.
I hear and read online all the time from other trainers and influencers how “any small amount of exercise, even 1 hour a week, is a good start and will give you benefits.”
I think this sends the wrong message to most people and sets them up for failure. In my experience as a coach It only puts you one excuse away from no exercise.
I have a duty as your coach to hold you accountable and not encourage a mediocre Fitness Code that will not get you the results you want. this is why I think it is so important for everyone to plan on 300 minutes a week of exercise, physical activity or even health and wellness research and planning.
Will your health benefit from less than 300 minutes a week?
Sure, but in my professional experience and observations i have found that people who dedicate 300 minutes a week or more to their health and fitness are successful 100% of the time and people who make excuses and dedicate less time get mixed results.
Why 300 minutes and not 5 hours?
It is much easier to break up your workouts into minutes and schedule it in a way that works for you and your busy schedule. just make sure you do it.
Record the time and dates of your workouts with the Tracking Sheet provided or in your notebook or smartphone phone notepad to make sure you are reaching aa minimum of 300 each week..
Do you know what you want to accomplish? What’s really important to you?
Now that we have a new Code to live by we need to create a Vision. My Kickbutt Workout is a great total body routine that will help you gain strength, power, endurance, balance, improve cardio and more. But what is most important to you? What should you do with the other 120+ minutes in your week? Yoga? Running? Healthy Cooking?
