CPM 101… FIT Habits
I like to read about success in all endeavors. I like to translate how success, in Money/Business for example, translates to success in FITness. Here is a recent article I came across that gave me the idea for today’s post. It starts out, If you ask Thomas Corley, being rich has very little to do with luck and everything to do with habits. I couldn’t agree more on the FITness side. Here are some CPM 101 FIT Habits. BTW – I have some 201 Habits coming in a future post.
Go to Class
You signed up at the gym to go to the gym. The bread and butter of your FITness and Results lies in your consistency to show up for what you committed for (2x, 3x, 4x, unlimited…). What you don’t want to do is prioritize this into your schedule… What you do want to do is Schedule This Priority into your schedule.

Consistency over Intensity
Yes, the workouts are intense. Yes, you will get sore. No, if you are too sore or tired you can NOT skip a day. Believe it or not the best thing to do when you are sore is too workout (come to class) more! Being smart and understanding your physical capacity is crucial. Work with your coaches. Understand and empower yourself on how to scale a workout/class.

Drink water; (with some salt)
“Water is not healthy.” ~ Said by nobody ever! Two things no one ever argues is healthy; eating vegetables and drinking water. Do we do it?? Water is the most natural healer of just about anything. Typically we don’t drink enough. And until recently I’ve learned, water is sometimes not enough….

Stretch and/or Take Yoga (Your ankles, shoulders, hips don’t lie)
It is very simple; Move more + Sit Less. We sit an average of 10+ hours a day (and that is on the light side). Our bodies in no way were designed to do that. We want to get toned, lean, athletic and strong… That is the fun stuff. It’s a challenge to get motivated to stretch. But it is what we need the most. When you unlock those; tight ankles, shoulders and hips; you lose pain + get stronger + multiply your results.

Do a Nutrition Check In and Quarterly Review.
All of the coaches were members just like you. We didn’t know how to Overhead Squat. Most couldn’t do kipping pullups (even Annie believe it or not). We used to eat bread… Alot! We’ve gone through what you are going through and not only did we make it through our roadblocks and setbacks we’ve helped 100s of people do the same. We are not doctors or nutritionist but we are EXPERTS in the field(s) of advice, motivation, accountability, encouragement and support. You know the REAL sh*t you need to make this FITness and Health a lifestyle!
