Fit for Life: Deal of the Century – GoLocalProv

If you are buying a car, house, or making any other large purchase, it is human nature to feel like you got great value and stretched your hard-earned money as far as you could.

The definition of the word deal is an agreement entered into by 2 or more parties for their mutual benefit, especially in a political or business context

This is what we do when someone comes on board as a member to Providence Fit Body Boot Camp.

We make a deal that we will coach them to reach their health and fitness goals in exchange for their commitment to be consistent, disciplined, and engaged with the program.

Lots of mutual benefits there.

The member gets their health and fitness back, and we can continue to do business as an organization.

However, I have an even better idea, and I came up with another acronym to describe this idea.

Make a DEAL with yourself & forget a second party!!

Heres how it goes:

D- Dedicate your life to being fit and healthy.

Yes, you heard that correctly.

Dedicate your life, because if you dont, your life will be cut short, or even worse, be filled with sickness, pain and misery.

When you do not take care of yourself on a daily basis, not only will the weight creep up around your waistline, and every other undesirable area of your body, you will do a tremendous amount of damage inside your body that you probably wont notice until its too late.

Do you know anyone with diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, cancer, arthritis, or some gastric issues such as acid reflux or stomach ulcers?

You probably do, and if you dont eat clean, exercise, sleep enough or drink enough water, these symptoms are bound to find you too.

Ya see, these are all preventable ailments that can be avoided through your lifestyle habits.

You may not immediately notice the damage you are doing, because it accumulates over time, however as I said earlier, you wont notice until its too late. (On a side note, once you start practicing living a healthy lifestyle, you will notice and feel the difference IMMEDIATELY!!)

E- Eliminate the toxic components that will derail your goals and dreams.

This includes everything from the food you eat to the people you hang around with to the way you spend your time to the thoughts that you let occupy your mind.

When you eat toxic food full of artificial ingredients, sugar, and empty calories, you are doing yourself a huge disservice. If your body cant break down the food you consume and utilize the nutrients for cellular repair and the regeneration of muscle growth, you are consuming empty calories that will just end up as fat storage in the body. A general rule I follow is that if you cant read or pronounce the ingredients, you shouldnt be eating it.

You also want to eliminate the people that dont add value to your life. If you cant eliminate them, then you need to edit your relationship with them. Toxic people are contagious, and when you find yourself in the company of someone that always complains, gossips, cries victim, and points the finger at everyone else, eventually that will drain you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, so stay away at all cost.

The last thing to eliminate is the toxic thought process that I cant do this, or Im not a fitness person, because the more you think this way, the more your thoughts will dictate your action, or lack of action. Think positive, and know that if it works for others, it will work for you too.

A- Answer the bell every day. Especially when you dont feel like it.

I have been personally working out for over 30 years now, and I cant remember a time that I would rather workout than do something easy like just hang out or go to the beach.

You will always find something that you would rather do than the workout, however, there arent too many things that are more important.

Its work. Hard work that takes effort and discipline, that most people arent willing to do and do consistently.

Its time consuming, and painful at times, but there isnt a better feeling of accomplishment than when you complete a workout or great week of eating clean.

Eating clean is another task that requires extra work and discipline, alongside the exercise component. You need to shop, meal prep, and most importantly be able to say no to eating the toxic food that will take you off your path.

Be ready to show up and work, because the rent is due every day. Rain, snow, 100 degrees, it doesnt matter because you have a responsibility to yourself to get the job done regardless of the conditions.

L-Listen and learn from people with more experience than you. If you are not sure what you need to do to accomplish your goals, dont suffer in silence, ask for help.

Most of our members werent fitness people when they came to us.

If they had the motivation and know-how to achieve their goals, they wouldnt need us.

At Providence Fit Body Boot Camp, we can take the most de-conditioned individual and turn them into a workout beast in a matter of a few months.

People that have struggled for years, see amazing results with our coaching and accountability program, because we show them how to take steps and implement habits into their lives that will set them up for success.

The same goes for anyone looking to run a profitable business.

Listen and learn from individuals that have the experience that you dont have.

Learn from others' mistakes and expedite the process so you dont waste the time trying to figure it all out on your own.

So, theres the formula to get started on your health and fitness journey.

However, the formula wont work unless you take a long look in the mirror and decide you have had enough and its time to make a change.

Only then will it be time to act like Bob Barker and say to yourself, lets make a deal.

Committed to your success,

Matt
