Here’s why you’re not "fit" and what to do about it (action required)
You want to be fit. You know how much you should weigh. You know your ideal pant size. You can even picture how great those jeans will look.

So why aren’t you living life in your ideal body?

There are many complex reasons that make weight loss a challenge, reasons that go deeper than simply calories-in versus calories-out.

I’m talking about the life issues that get in the way of your success.

Read the following 5 obstacles and the solution to unlock your best body ever.

1. You don’t want to be bothered.

It’s in your DNA to avoid pain and seek out pleasure. Unfortunately this works against you when trying to get fit. In your mind, it’s painful (or at least uncomfortable) to deny yourself the tasty food that you crave and to exert yourself with exercise.

Focus on the negative impact your current weight has on your health, self-esteem and lifestyle. Convince yourself that the pain of being out of shape is much greater than the discomfort of losing weight. Let's use that motivation!

2. You don’t want to wait for the good stuff.

Just as you wish to avoid pain, you are also an expert in seeking out pleasure—namely food. This served the cavemen well, but these days it ends up as extra pounds around your waist and thighs.

There’s good news: extra calories are not your only option to stimulate the pleasure center of your brain. Find an activity or two that make you smile and indulge in those regularly.
  • A walk outside
  • A good book
  • A night out to the movies or theater
  • A spa day
You can also retrain your brain to crave the pleasure of exercise-induced endorphins. Talk about weight gain kryptonite!

3. You are crazy busy.

Face it, you work too much, commit yourself to too much and don’t even get enough sleep most of the time. The fast-paced way you live leaves you exhausted, stressed and hungry for comfort food. You even begin to feel too busy to take care of your health.

It’s time to reprioritize. Let go of your perfectionist standards and remove a few commitments from your schedule so that you are able to cook healthy meals, exercise and get a good night’s sleep. Remind yourself that taking care of your health is not a luxury—it’s a necessity.

4. You don’t deserve it.

I don’t agree with it, but you sure act like you don’t deserve to live the good life in the body of your dreams. If you don’t believe deep down that you are worthy then you’ll never give yourself a chance at a fit body.

I believe that you deserve to have a healthy body—and I urge you to dig deep down to uncover why you don’t. Once you conquer your feelings of unworthiness, getting on an exercise and healthy eating plan will be easy.

Take the time to take care of yourself. You DO deserve it.

5. You are afraid.

You’re afraid to start because you just might fail, and wouldn’t that be embarrassing? You’re also afraid to start because you just might succeed, and change makes you uncomfortable – even if it’s change in the right direction.

When you decide to get fit you will need to go through a bushel of changes:
  • New diet
  • New exercise routine
  • New friends at the gym
  • New clothes
  • New self-image
Focus on all of the ways that losing weight will make your life better. Envision that better life everyday so that it goes from being new and scary to familiar and comfortable.

Just A Few Minutes
Are you a chronic procrastinator? Do you put off going to the gym? Research shows that by spending ‘just a few minutes’ doing the dreaded task you’ll feel an urge to see it through completion. These initial few minutes of activity create an open loop that refuses to close until the job is done.

TESTIMONIALS
Unity Fitness is by far the best experience I’ve had! I love the workouts; the trainers are awesome; and I especially enjoy the fact that I’m working out in a group. That pushes me to work harder and I enjoy the group feeling! Just about a month ago, I took a giant leap of faith in Jordan and his meal plans and I have lost more weight in the past month than I have in the past two years. Jordan’s suggested nutrition program really makes a huge difference in the results. But most of all , my over all health is so much better. The trainers push you to reach your limit and beyond what you think you would ever be able to do. It’s an awesome feeling to know I can push harder than I though I could. My mind no longer quits before my body. I have never worked this hard in my life, I love it and the results show it.

Before I started training with Jordan 5 weeks ago, I had never been in a gym. He is patient and encouraging. He plans out each training session and even did some extra research about a medical problem of mine so that the training accommodated my needs. I recommend him highly.
