Achieving your fitness and weight loss goals require a lot of hard work and dedication. Many of us experience difficulty trying to lose weight, while we notice others can’t stop shedding those pounds. How do they do it? We like to think that they have those perfect genes that allow them to eat whatever they want and only exercise a little but still stay slim, or maybe they have found out some long lost secret to losing weight. Well, this may be true for a very small number of them. Most of them know there are certain habits that successful dieters have to follow and follow them to a tee. This means that in order to turn your weight loss nightmare into a success story, all you need to do is incorporate these habits into your daily routine.

  1. Set small, attainable goals. Most of us focus on losing weight and unfortunately a lot of it. We set a goal to lose thirty pounds in a month. However, these bigger, more spread out goals that only focus on our weight may be doing more damage than good. You should try setting smaller goals over a shorter period of time. This should get you moving, especially when you begin to notice that you are accomplishing these goals throughout your fitness routine. You could set goals such as eating more vegetable, increasing your daily water intake, lifting a few more pounds or adding some extra distance to your run. The more attributes of your routine that you can focus on, the more you can celebrate. This should have you motivated and ready to rock your fitness routine in no time.

  2. Allow yourself a few breaks. We all think that in order to achieve our weight loss goals, we have to stick to a strict schedule. We think we have to workout for hours on end to get the body we want. However, when you start out too hard on yourself, it is hard to slow down. You will only push yourself past your breaking point. By being too strict on yourself, you will only set yourself up for failure. Allow yourself some time to rest and relax from your fitness routine and give yourself enough rest days (2-3 a week) and you may be surprised at how much you can achieve.

  3. All work and no play. Most of us believe that diet and exercise can’t be fun. It is a chore to us that has to be done. This attitude can put you down the right path. You need to make your fitness routine fun, and it can easily be done. You can look for new and exciting recipes to learn. Your taste buds can have the chance to experience new flavors and tastes. Just because your food is not full of calories or fat, does not mean it has to be tasteless. So, dive into those cookbooks and find something new and interesting. As far as the physical part of your routine goes, you can seek out new things in that area too. You can look into taking different types of fitness classes. There are so many out there that appeal to different types of people. You could learn a martial art like kickboxing, karate or tae kwon do. You could take a dance class like jazz, ballroom or modern. You could take yoga, a spin class, aerobics, whatever keeps you interested and motivated.

It can be frustrating trying to lose weight and feeling as if you are going nowhere. You put in all this hard work, and it just does not seem to pay off. It may be time to switch up your routine or add something new and exciting. You could reach out to others for ideas or help. You may need to take a step back and reevaluate your routine or your goals, but the main thing is to never give up. If you keep trying, you are bound to come up with a routine that works for you.

Many of us fear the scale. We have tried and tried to lose those excess pounds and seem to accomplish nothing. We diet and workout but only seem to end up frustrated and hungry. It can leave most of us feeling out of control and powerless. Well, it is time to take back our power and regain control by following these eight easy tips to successfully complete our weight loss journey.

  1. Eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables. They contain vitamins, antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients that you need to stay healthy and fuel your workouts. They are low in calories and make you feel full. This helps keep your caloric intake lower, plus adds in a ton of fiber, which helps you lose weight quicker.

  2. Watch your portion control. Many of us do not eat the correctly sized portions. If you go out to eat, you are definitely getting larger portions than you should. Most restaurants serve very large portions, but you could always take some leftovers home and eat them later. You do not have to eat the entire plate in one sitting. At home, you can pay more attention to the serving size on the label and follow it. It can be easier to portion your meals if you stay away from eating out and have more meals at home.

  3. Avoid skipping meals. Most of us think that if we avoid eating we can lose weight. However, this could give us the opposite effect. You want to balance your caloric intake and blood sugar throughout the day, so skipping meals is not the best idea, especially breakfast. It will throw your system off balance and wreck your weight loss plans.

  4. Do not cut out all your favorites. It can be hard to quit anything cold turkey, and food is no exception. You should allow yourself to partake in some of your favorite foods but remember do not overdo it. You can enjoy your favorite foods with a little moderation, and when many people try to cut them out entirely, they just set themselves up for failure. We are more prone to cheat on our diet and give up on our weight loss goals if we try to cut out everything we like.

  5. Understand food labels. The labels on food can be extremely helpful but also misleading. You need to know how to read them. Many foods like to grab our attention by putting low fat or no carbs on the label; however, many foods that claim to be low in fat or low carb may be higher in calories. Many companies love to put out products that are labeled as the original and then another that is suppose to be a diet version of this product . You need to remember that just because the company says it is diet does not mean it is proven to help you lose weight. You need to look at everything on the label and make sure you understand the entire nutritional information.

  6. Watch what you drink. It is easy to focus on our food intake and forget about what we drink. However, with all the sugary, calorie filled drinks out there, they can really add a lot to your caloric and fat intake. Milkshakes, specialty coffee drinks, sweet tea and sodas are notorious for adding unnecessary calories to your daily caloric intake. The best option is to always stick with water. It will keep you full and hydrated without adding any unnecessary calories to your diet.

  7. Keep a food journal. Many people swear by keeping a food journal. It gives you a way to see what you are really eating in a day and makes you take responsibility for what you ate. There is no way to sneak anything past yourself if you have a written record. You will also benefit from being able to see how to manipulate your diet to squeeze in healthier options.

  8. Exercise. You can change your diet all you want, but you still will not be able to tone your body unless you exercise. You have to strengthen your muscles in order to tone, and this means you have to do some sort of physical activity. Exercising not only helps you lose weight, but it helps you to change your body shape.

It can seem impossible for most of us to stick with our weight loss goals. Just remember that being difficult does not mean it is impossible. It is up to us to determine what will work best for us in order to stick to our weight loss goals. With a little hard work and determination, we can achieve our goals.

Motivation is necessary to reach our goals. In order to achieve those amazing results, we have to stick to our plans, and motivation is our driving force. It tells us that we can do this and nothing is going to stand in our way, but what happens if along the way, you lose your motivation? Your goals will probably seem impossible and too hard to reach. You may think that there is no way to accomplish what you set out to do. This is the time when you will have to look down deep inside you and find your motivation once again, but how can you do that when you are so down? There is no need to panic. We have gathered a list of things that may help you when you feel your motivation slipping.

  1. Adjust your attitude. You are not the person you were before. Now you are committed to your fitness routine and working hard to achieve your goals. You are a fitness guru and nothing can hold you back. You are not a couch potato anymore. That has changed and so has the way that you look at yourself. Once you change the way you look at yourself, you will be more likely to succeed and stick with your fitness routine. It is all about keeping a good attitude and looking at yourself as a winner.

  2. Congratulate yourself. It can be difficult to be proud of our successes, especially before we have achieved our goals, but every move you make in the right direction should make you feel a little bit better about yourself. We are not going to see a difference in our weight every single day, and it may be tough going in the beginning. However, every time you workout you should be proud that you are working toward your goal and making progress. Remember even the little steps add up, so never deny yourself that extra pat on the back because it can help you go a long way on your weight loss journey.

  3. Mix it up. Who wants to do the same thing over and over? No one. It can make anything we do become boring and predictable, and our fitness routines are no different. We want to keep our fitness routines exciting and engaging. Not only will this keep us looking forward to working out, but it will also ensure that our bodies won’t become use to the movements in our routines. If this happens, our bodies will not be completely engaged in our workouts. We will not use as much energy to perform these movements, and our results will slow or eventually stop. This can also cause our motivation to lessen if not disappear completely, so do not be afraid to change it up every now and then.

  4. Write down your goals. By writing down your goals, you will always remember why you started your fitness routine, and this will easily help you to remember why you started this routine in the first place. You can easily go back to your list when you are having doubts as to why you seem to be torturing yourself with certain exercises. You can go back to your list of goals anytime you feel down to help you realize what you are working towards.

  5. Don’t focus on your setbacks. We are all going to come across obstacles on our way to achieve our goals. No one is going to be perfect. We have to accept a few failures or slip ups along the way. It is normal. The important thing to remember is that one slip up is not going to impact our weight loss journey that much as long as we get right back up and carry on as usual. So, pick yourself up and move on. You will always have another chance to get back on track.

Motivation plays a huge role in achieving our goals. If you ever feel down, try to rely on some of the tips above. Remember all you need to do is stay motivated, stick with your fitness routine and never give up on your goals.

There are many things that can upset our weight loss journeys. No one is perfect, and the unexpected loves to pop up and throw a wrench in things just when we think everything is running perfectly and nothing can stop us. It is inevitable that one day we will experience some sort of obstacle in our weight loss routine that we will have to overcome. However, we have to learn to expect these types of setbacks and deal with them appropriately in order to achieve our fitness goals. It may seem easier said than done, but there is no need to worry. By using a few of our tips, you will get past these hurdles in no time.

  1. Overeating. We have all been there before. We may have attended a party or a family get together and ended up overindulging in those tasty party treats, or maybe we woke up in the middle of the night with a need to satisfy that sweet tooth. It happens, even to the best of us. The most important thing to remember is that one slip up in your diet is not going to make much of a difference. You will not become obese because of one eating binge, so do not get too hard on yourself. You need to pick yourself up and continue on as before.

  2. Illness. We all get sick from time to time no matter how much we try to take care of our bodies. The best thing to do when we are not feeling well is to take it easy. You need to eat right and get plenty of rest to allow your body to heal and overcome this illness. Once you begin to feel better, you can attempt to ease slowly back into your fitness routine. Take your time and ensure that you truly feel up to doing your fitness routine. It is perfectly normal to feel a little off at the beginning of returning to your workout. Don’t let this upset you. You will be back to working out as usual in no time.

  3. Lack of motivation. This can happen to a lot of us. We set out on our weight loss journeys with the best of intentions, but then we just sort of lose them along the way. Our fitness routines may not be getting us the results that the want or seem too boring for us to stick with, and we seem to slowly taper off without even realizing that we are putting less and less effort into our workouts. This is where you may need to seek the help of others to keep you going or dig down deep inside of yourself. Each of us are different. If you want outside help, you can try working out with a friend, joining an online fitness community or hiring a personal trainer. If you prefer to do it alone, then you could keep a fitness journal to help hold yourself accountable, but you have to write down everything for it to be effective. You can also write down your goals and put up pictures of how you want to look or feel. It is up to you to decide on what method will work best for you.

  4. Injuries. Sometimes, accidents happen, and of course, they are always unexpected. An injury might not have been caused by your fitness routine, but it still affects your workouts! This can leave us feeling down and helpless, which can have a major effect on our motivation. However, depending on your injury there may still be some types of exercises that you can still do. Your best option during this time is to ask your doctor which exercises you can safely perform and which ones will help you overcome your injury faster. You could also benefit by hiring a personal trainer to oversee your workouts to make sure that you do not overdo it. Just as with an illness, you will have to gradually ease back into your fitness routine. While you are recovering, the most important thing you can do is to really tighten up on your right eating habits at every single meal! The rule is: sometimes you can’t workout, but you can still eat right! This is guaranteed to keep your fitness goals from spiraling downward due to an injury.

There are many obstacles we will have to overcome on our weight loss journey, and it is these times that will define if we will give up or finish our journey. It is up to us to remember why we started this journey in the first place and allow these reasons to push us past the finish line.

The best way to stick to your fitness routine is by achieving your goals. There is nothing more motivating than being able to see all the good your fitness routine is doing. However, it can be hard to get the results that we want, especially right away and trying to figure out what is wrong can be even harder. Is it the goal itself, our fitness routine or just us having unrealistic ideas? It can get extremely confusing to us. That is why we have compiled a few tips to help get you started down the right path to achieving your goals.

  1. Have a detailed plan. You need to have a set way to go about achieving your goals. You need to know how you are going to go about achieving it, if you will need the help of others, where to go to find any information you will need and how to overcome any obstacles or setbacks along the way because face it they are going to happen.

  2. Ease into your goals. Do not expect results overnight. Most of us become discouraged when we do not see results immediately, and this is why we have to start out with smaller and more specific goals. You could try working out for 15 minutes every other day or drinking at least eight glasses of water per day. These smaller goals will give you a sense of accomplishment and help give your confidence a boost, which will help you achieve all of your goals.

  3. Do not expect perfection. No one is perfect, not even you, and we have to accept that. There will be bumps along the way. We will experience those days when we want to throw in the towel and walk away from our fitness routines and our goals, but we have to stay the course. We started this fitness routine to achieve something, and we should never let any setbacks stand in our way. So, have a plan ready for those days and use it. It is time to dust yourself off and get back out there.

  4. Track everything. You need to keep a written record of everything. How else are you going to know if you are improving? Write down what you eat and drink, how often and how long you exercise, how much you can lift or how far you can run and of course, all those little measurements (weight and inches) of your body. This will help you see how much all of your hard work is paying off and encourage you to keep going, especially on the days you are feeling down.

  5. Ask for help. There is no shame in needing help to achieve your goals. Many of us need that extra push from others to help us achieve our goals. We may need someone to show us how to perform the best exercises or have them in the corner cheering us on. It could be as simple as someone going to the gym with us and holding us accountable to help us be successful. It can never hurt to have people around you that support you. They can always lift you up when you are feeling down, so you should never be afraid to ask for help when you need it.

Starting a fitness routine can be confusing, and you do not want to make it harder by setting the wrong goals or by going about achieving your goals the wrong way. You need to see positive results in order to make sticking to our fitness routine easier, so try a few of our tips and see how much more you can achieve.

A lot of us may find that our fitness routines may not be giving us the results that we want. We put in all the time and effort, but the results we want just don’t come.

Define your goals

You have to know what you want to accomplish before you start your fitness routine. How would you truly know if you are getting what you want out of your fitness routine, if you did not have something definitive to work towards? Picking your goals may seem easy to most. However, it can be quite difficult. If you say you want to get more toned, get in better shape or to run faster, how do you know when you have truly accomplished these? You want to make your goal more definitive, such as losing twenty pounds or lifting ten more pounds. If you want to push yourself even harder you could also try adding a time limit to your goal. However, you do not want to push yourself too far too fast because you do not want to set yourself up for failure. Also on the flip side you do not want to make your goals too easy to reach. You may become bored and slack off if you go this route.

 

Devise a plan

Once you decide on your goals, you need to devise a fool proof plan to ensure that you can achieve everything you want out of your fitness routine. You can not just run around the gym whenever you feel like it doing whatever you want because you will end up getting nowhere. Your routine will need more structure than this. You should SCHEDULE THE DAYS when you plan to exercise. No need to worry about which muscle group you will focus on each time you workout, because your 9Round Trainer will tell you exactly what to do every day you come in! This way you can ensure that you are getting a well rounded fitness routine. It is also important to take the time out of your day to plan your meals. You want to have the proper diet to go along with your well rounded fitness routine in order to get the best results possible. Don’t sabotage all your good efforts in the gym with bad nutrition habits. Follow your 9Round Nutrition Guide to a tee!

 

Make it a habit

Once you get past the planning stage, you should find yourself making better habits and getting rid of any of your old bad habits. Once you plan so many trips to the gym or a certain time you like to workout, you should find your body is automatically preparing itself for your workout ahead of time. You may even find yourself heading to the gym without even thinking about it. You should also be looking forward to eating your healthier meals and not craving the junk food you use to eat as much. These cravings will still be there but not as often or as strong as before. Eventually you will go grocery shopping and head straight for your healthier foods and skip the junk aisle all together.

 

Hold yourself accountable

It is up to you to achieve your goals. You can not blame anyone else. You need to find a way to hold yourself accountable. Some people can not go it alone and feel more apt to exercise if they have a partner depending on them. Most people need the structure of a fitness center or the help of a personal trainer to get them to stick to their fitness routines. Most people also cannot afford a personal trainer every day! 9Round includes your trainer at no extra charge. All you have to do is show up! How’s that for a solution?

 

It can be frustrating trying to reach your goals and seeing little or no progress. However, you have to stick to it. As long as you set reasonable goals, devise a plan you can easily stick to and understand that it is going to take time to see the results that you want, you will succeed. Just remember that even though it may take a while to see the results that you want, in the long run it will definitely be worth it.

We have all been there. There are just days or weeks or maybe even months that we can not seem to drag ourselves off of the couch to go workout. It happens to everyone every now and then. So, how do we overcome these feelings? It is, of course, different for everyone because we are all motivated by different things. We are going to take a look at some of the more common techniques people use, and you can decide for yourself if they will work for you.

 

 

  1. Keep a fitness log. You can not measure your success based on the scale alone. If you keep a fitness log, you will be able to see every type of achievement you make, such as working out for longer periods of time without getting breathless, making time to visit the gym more often and being able to lift more weight. You can also keep track of your eating habits and body measurements.You may drop a dress size or two and not lose any weight, so this can be a real big deal to a lot of us. However, you have to be diligent in filling out your fitness log.

  2. Never compare yourself to others. Everyone of us is different. We all come in different shapes and sizes. We can not change the fact that some of us may be skinnier or taller than others or that they can workout longer or lift more weight than us. Besides, in a gym everyone is working out at a different fitness level, so you do not know how long or how hard some else may have been working on their body. The best thing to do in this situation is to focus on yourself. Pay attention to the changes in your body and your fitness routine, and you will be much happier.

  3. Find a friend. It may help you stay on track if you have someone else encouraging you or depending on you. You could create a nice support team for each other. As I said before, we all have those days when we do not feel like working out, but if you have a friend waiting for you at the gym most of us would feel more inclined to go. It could also make a monotonous fitness routine a little bit more fun if you know someone else will be there with you going through the same thing.

  4. Make it fun. Of course, you do not want to get up off the couch if you are doing the same old thing over and over. You need to switch it up and add a little excitement to your fitness routine. You also do not want your body getting use to your fitness routine. You will almost always stop seeing results if this happens. There are many different fitness options out there if you are getting bored. You could try kickboxing, crossfit, dancing, rock climbing or water aerobics. The options are endless. If you choose something you are interested in doing then you will start looking forward to your fitness routines.

  5. Have a little patience. This can be extremely difficult for most of us, but you need to remember the saying Rome wasn’t built in a day. This is also true for your fitness routine and your body. You can not expect to see major results after your first few workouts. It may take multiple trips to the gym before you start seeing any results. However, you need to remain consistent and stick with your fitness routine if you want to achieve your goals.

 

Going to the gym can seem to be a daunting task for many of us. Hopefully some of these tips can help you stick to your fitness routine. You will never know if you do not try them, right?

Most of us have heard of them- the dreaded burpee. Most of our fitness classes or personal trainers push us through this excruciating exercise that most of us view as torture. It has become a common exercise in many fitness routines because of how effectively it can engage your entire body by utilizing full body movement. It is because of all the hard work and energy required to help our bodies achieve this full range of motion that helps us accomplish our fitness goals and dread the very word known as burpee. Here are just a few tips to help you achieve the full impact of this exercise.

pink-fitness-1419880-m.jpg

  • Pace yourself. You do not want to stop in the middle of a burpee set. It will be next to impossible to get going again. You want to make sure that you pick a pace you can keep up with consistently throughout your routine. If you are doing a few burpees then you can increase your speed, but if you are going for multiple burpees then you need to slow down and pace yourself to ensure that you will not have to take any unnecessary breaks.

  • Feet then hands. When performing a burpee most of us learned were taught that we needed to wait until our hands hit the ground before we throw our legs back. However, once you are pretty familiar with the movements in a burpee it will be easy to throw your legs back before your hands hit the ground, and this could save you some time, especially when you are doing multiple burpees.

  • Go into an autopilot type of mind frame. Try to keep your mind focused on your form and not on how many more burpees you have to do in your routine. It can seem too challenging when your mind is thinking can I do this many more. It would seem a lot easier if you just focused on the jumping, squatting and maintaining the correct posture. This way it will appear to go by quicker than you thought.

  • Remember to breathe. It can be hard to follow the proper breathing techniques when you are exercising. You would not believe how many people tend to hold their breath during their workouts. Try to keep your breathing regular while you are exercising and make sure that you are breathing, especially if you are a fitness newbie or new to a certain exercise routine. You may tend to focus on the movements and posture and not your breathing.

  • Follow the correct posture. The burpee is an extremely trying exercise. It is easy to lose the proper posture, especially if you are doing multiple burpees. Be sure that you are not arching your back during the exercise and that you are maintaining the full range of motion required by the exercise. If you have to ease off or slow down to maintain the proper posture then you should. You do not want to waste all your energy on an ineffective fitness routine or even worse injure yourself.

The burpee is a difficult exercise to perform; however, it can give any fitness routine an added boost that it may need to propel you quickly to the results that you want. It may seem like torture to most of us, but there is a good reason for most of us to go through that torture. It helps us reach our fitness goals and makes our bodies stronger and healthier than we thought they could ever be.

Fit or Die

Seemingly anywhere we look these days there is some sort of ‘must’ list telling us to be sure to do certain things. This is especially true of fitness magazines and websites.

Lists can be great. I have even posted a few on this site designed to offer suggestions or certain things that come to mind when I think of process improvement or ways to make fit living easier.

The problem, is that most of the lists you will find on sponsored sites are designed to sell you something.

They also lead way to the assumption that they are actually all you need to do to achieve the goal stated in the title.

For example, how many times have we read an article titled something like “6 must-do exercises for a shredded six-pack?”

Sure, those might be some great ab exercises. They are not however going to do  anything for you…
