When you transform yourself by getting into shape, you’ll notice the difference in how you look and feel, but there are other transformations going on besides just the physical. I’ve watched hundreds of clients lose weight and look fantastic afterward, but I’ve also seen an amazing transformation in their whole outlook on life. Many have more confidence and often become more outgoing. Those who were understress look and act like a weight was lifted from their shoulders. They may lose weight and inches, but they’re gaining so much more in the process.
Shedding pounds and becoming mentally tough is part of the transformation.
Mental toughness does NOT mean you turn a blind eye to those in need. Instead, it means you learn how to power through times when you feel like quitting, but continue anyway. That’s one of the attributes our clients develop when they stick to the workout schedule and see results. Many people come in feeling like failures because they’ve dieted or started workout programs before but after a few weeks, their dedication ended. We provide the motivation to help you through that tough time. Seriously, some times all it takes is having someone you’re accountable to that makes a program successful.
Confidence increases the fitter you become.
I don’t know which plays the largest role in this occurring, the confidence that occurs because you know you look great, the confidence from achieving a goal or simply the improved posture that makes you look and ultimately feel more confident. It doesn’t matter, the results are the same. Our clients find that after a few months of working out, they feel better about themselves and are ready to take on new challenges.
You’ll be more positive.
That’s right, your attitude toward life will improve when you workout regularly. One of the reasons is that you burn off the hormones created by stress that can leave you feeling angry with a knot in the pit of your stomach. Another reason is the hormones, such as dopamine, endorphins, serotonin and oxytocin are released due to exercise. These are happy hormones that leave you feeling content.
You’ll transform your overall health when you workout regularly. One study showed that for every minute you exercise, it extends your life 7 minutes. There are many other studies showing the health benefits of working out.
Your skin will look more youthful. Exercise increases circulation and the production of antioxidants that protect the skin cells. The increased circulation brings oxygen and nutrients to all cells in the body.
You’ll have more energy, so you’ll want to be more active. You’ll look for new adventures at the end of the day because of the extra energy. That makes for more fun in your life.
You’ll transform your sex life too. Exercise makes both males and females more passionate because of the increased energy, improved appearance and better mental attitude.
