Chris Powell: How to get your fitness goals back on track

Fitness guru Chris Powell said, “More than 40% of people drop out of their news resolutions in the first four weeks.”

PHOENIX — Remember when you started the new year excited and motivated to get healthy or lose weight? And then, after a month, you might have fallen off the fitness wagon, as many people do.

Fitness guru Chris Powell said, “More than 40% of people drop off their news resolutions in the first four weeks.”

If you think that’s bad, it gets worse, Powell added. “Halfway through the year, more than 60% of people don’t keep their New Year’s resolutions.”

Confess to a super friend

A super friend is someone who knows exactly what you’re going through. Powell said, “When I say confess, if you make a commitment to yourself, if you screw up because no trip is perfect, you’re going to screw it up, call your friend, that super friend. And just let them know, ‘Hey, I messed up, I should have done this.” “

Judge again

Think about what you’ve taken on and whether it’s too much for you. Powell said, “Maybe instead of drinking an extra pint of water, just drink an extra two cups. Instead of saying, you’re going to run for 15 minutes today,

break it down to five. So it’s okay to change 100%. You are supposed to change. It’s alright.”

Re-commit and take action

Powell said, “The moment you say, ‘Okay, I’ve reviewed this, maybe it was just a fluke, maybe I can’t keep those older commitments, or you know what, I’m going to change them and I’m going to and scale them back to something I know I can do every day. That’s the reassessment. And then we say, once it’s there, I commit to doing this every day. Remember that, I think that you take action.”

The bottom line, Powell said, “We think of this process as falling without failure. It’s okay to fall, but if you use these simple steps, you’ll get back up and keep going and eventually you’ll get where you want to go. to go.”
