Aaron Savvy, ACSM Certified Trainer
Hello, reader, and welcome to one of the most important days of your life.
What if I told you that you that yes, you could obtain the physique you have been longing for? Not only would you get your physique, but you could sustain it and never lose it. Is this possible? If I’m a guessing man, you are either saying to yourself, “I don’t believe you,” “Eh… whatever,” or “Do tell, Aaron!”
Up to this point in your life, you have established for yourself a ‘lifestyle.’ Now, perhaps your lifestyle is full of healthy eating, workouts and plenty of sleep, maybe it’s partially healthy or perhaps it’s not healthy at all—only you can answer that. Nonetheless, you want more, and rightfully so.
If you want to change your lifestyle, it all starts with your your mindset. For example, try this: I want you to stretch out your arm, open your hand and now close it. How were you able to do that? Because without second guessing yourself, you were able to relay the thought process from your brain to your arm. Changing your physique is as easy as that was, but many will still limit themselves every day, saying, “It’s too hard,” “I don’t have the time” or “I’m not good enough.” But they are wrong, and this type of thinking is unacceptable. Your life is a perpetual process of choices. It’s what you do with those choices that will either allow you to progress and move forward toward your goals or hinder your progression.
Now, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that to get the physique you want will take at least five to six days per week in the gym, working each muscle group evenly. Your meals should be full of protein (lean meats), carbohydrates (brown rice, oatmeal, whole wheat), healthy fats (avocado, olive oil, almonds), a ton of vegetables and a lot of water.
If you already knew this, why aren’t you applying it to your life? It is because you either doubt your ability to envision and see the final outcome or you just lack the knowledge or know-how to obtain your dreams. I never said obtaining this physique was going to be easy, but the simple tools I am laying out for you will give you solid ground to build off. If you are unsure about how to work out, please hire a fitness trainer.
I have been able to maintain my physique for well over a decade now. How was I able to maintain this? I have friends who started the same time I did. They also got a great physique, but after time lost all they had worked so hard for. Work got in the way and the pure persevering just fizzled out. For me, I knew that I could not battle or fight with myself. There were no excuses! I always kept myself in check, and when I did have a bad day, I told myself just that and that tomorrow was going to be a better day. If you want this lifestyle, and I know you do, be good to yourself.
Do not doubt yourself or your abilities, and for the love of god do not allow others to dictate or put negativity in your road to success. Take one day at a time (baby steps) and just don’t look back. I’ll be with you every step of the way!
