"What gets measured gets improved."
By Jeremy Jones
Ah yes, it is a New Year once again. In the fitness industry we all know that January brings resolutions, goals, and motivation to all of us. As fired up as everyone is about his or her new nutrition plan or workout regime, for some reason this excitement dwindles, and before you know it, many people have abandoned the goals that they felt so strongly about. What are you going to do this year to not be part of that crowd? How are you going to separate yourself from others and continue on your health and fitness journey all year long? The answer is simple. Stay on track this year by committing yourself to regularly scheduled assessments, measurements, and workout appointments.
Robin Sharma says it best, "What gets measured gets improved." In order to make something better you must first have a baseline or some type of starting ground. Beginning your year without knowing these vital statistics is like being dropped in the middle of the ocean without knowing what direction to swim. If you head into your new workout plan or begin your clean and healthy eating plan without first weighing, measuring, and recording your bodyfat percentage, you are setting yourself up for failure. Without knowing your initial biometrics, you will not be able to measure what changes have occurred during your first month. The improvements, whether it is weight loss, a smaller waistline, increase in lean body mass, or whatever else your goal(s) might be, are what continue to motivate you on a weekly and monthly basis. Experiencing consistent success will keep you fired up all year long.
The best way to ensure your regular measurements take place is to have an accountability partner. This person could be your family member or friend, or even better, your Fitness Coach. Whoever it might be, commit to each other and help each other succeed this year by keeping regular tabs on your improvements. At Funktional Fitness, our Coaches schedule monthly assessments with their private training clients to evaluate each individual's progress and to make adjustments to his or her plans as necessary. Our goal is for all of our clients and members to reach his or her goals and to continue to see improvements thru ought the year.
One of our biggest focuses this year is to schedule regular assessments with our GroupFit members. We want each of you to feel more confident and even more successful by tracking your monthly progress and establishing monthly goals.
