Strategies Of Fitness Success

By Vito La Fata

Are you trying to get in shape and lose some extra pounds? If so, then you may be ready for some helpful fitness success strategies to help keep you on the path to success. The good news is that there are several things you can change in your life to help you both in your fitness quest and in the other areas of your life.

One of the first things you can do is to try to resist too much distraction in our world filled with distraction! Our phones are ringing, we have emails coming in, texts bombarding us and voice mails to listen to. We are trying to multi-task, but it is not working very well. It is also bad for our health.

There was actually a study did that demonstrated how poorly multitasking actually works in the real world. The researchers found that when people multitask, they actually lose 10 points in their overall IQ score assessment. This explains a lot, does it not? Even though we are trying hard to multitask, it just is not having the results that we desire.

But there is more to the story. Researchers also did a study on what happened to the IQ of people when they get high. The results were interesting: people who get high only suffer a decrease of five points in their IQ.

Multitasking doesn't work; it's much better to focus. We lose 28% of our productive energy when we try to do too much at once. How does this apply to your fitness? When you're at a session, be there. Don't be somewhere else, hanging onto your phone, as though the world won't be ok without you for 30-60 minutes. When you are at home, be present with your family, your nutrition, etc.--give it attention and focus versus mindlessly eating, or being distracted by TV.

It is crucial to understand that those who are successful are often knowledgeable about all the thing pulling at them and trying to get them off focus. They work hard to stay focused and reduce the amount of noise that is around them. Imitate them and you will find greater success in your weight loss quest.
