Like most life changes, it isn’t so easy at first and I can honestly say by setting short and long-term goals, you are able to maximise your success. This works for beginner’s right up to experts and professionals. The 90-day challenge is a great way to get some reasonable and tangible results showing your efforts are paying off.
Three months gives your body time to adapt to the lifestyle changes and you can begin to form new habits.
You also give yourself time for mistakes and setbacks, as we are human and they happen, thus it makes sense to factor them in to best prepare yourself for success. Fitness, like most challenging things is very mental and psychological. Thinking a year or more down the road can be overwhelming and intimidating, even thinking about sticking to a program or regime for six months can feel like a lot, especially for first timers. This overwhelming feeling can lead to failure and is the main reason most people quit.
90 days is that “ideal” time period that most people can commit to and through that period they will see results to feel accomplished and motivated to continue!
So give yourself a 90 day challenge to; gain, lose, get stronger, trim inches, get faster, jump higher, swim strong or run further….whatever it is, just keep challenging yourself and pushing yourself to your fullest potential. At the end of it, you can say you did your best and gave it your all! If you are interested in starting a 90-day challenge, email me and I would be happy to help you get started.
