Just 1 Percent Better Is All It Takes

I’m sure you’ve probably heard of the 80/20 rule. The idea is that a small number of things account for the majority of the results which is also known as the Pareto Principle.

For example if one road is slightly more convenient than the other, more people will travel down that road. With that, more businesses are likely to build alongside it and as more businesses are built, people have additional reasons for using the road and so it gets even more traffic. Soon you end up with a saying like, “20 percent of the roads receive 80 percent of the traffic.”

Now keeping the 80/20 rule in mind, if you can focus on getting One Percent better each day with your fitness, you can easily create dramatic positive effects on y...

5 Reasons Why You Need Protein for Fat Loss

temp-post-image

With our Fit in 42 program in the books we have seen some awesome results. In just 7 days, our group of 6 lost a total of 20.3 lbs and 13.5 inches!

One thing I did notice though was that as a group, the protein intake was a little lower than expected, which brings up an important point for anyone who is looking to lose weight and tone up.

Here are 5 reasons why you should be consuming more protein in your nutrition plan.

  1. IT PROMOTES MUSCLE REPAIR & GROWTH

Your protein needs increase especially after bouts of intense exercise because of the tissue breakdown that this type of exercising causes. The soreness you feel in the muscles is because of this breakdown. We want the repairing process to start immediately so that’s where protein comes in. It can literally start...

6 Truths About Exercise That Nobody Wants to Believe

I came across this article on JamesClear.com the other day and thought it was interesting. James is NOT a certified trainer or strength coach but as an avid exercise enthusiast, he described 6 things that I think are spot on. They also align incredibly well with our Motivate Fitness philosophy which is why I decided to share.

You can check out the full story here or ready below for a quick synopsis:

1. Commit for the long-term.

Most people workout with a short-term goal in mind. Ignore the short-term results. If you commit to the long-term process, the results will come.

Furthermore, stop acting like living a healthy life is a big deal. You can go to the gym every week. That can be “normal” for you. Not a sacrifice. Not an obligation. Normal.

2. Set a schedule for your training.

Stop treating exercise as something to do when it's convenient and start setting a schedule for yourself to follow. Put it on the schedule and then organize your life and responsibilities around it. Setting a schedule for your training becomes even more important when life gets crazy. There will always be occasional emergencies that prevent you from working out. It's part of life. The problem is that most...
