Success can come in many forms based on one’s own goals. Goals such as body fat % loss, muscle gain, increasing energy, mental clarity, decreasing pain, etc. take slightly different approaches in order to achieve. However, even though the route to each individual’s goals may look different, there are underlying steps that when put into action almost guarantee achievement of the goal. At BBCT we have compiled a short list of commonalities that our most successful clients share and have used to gain success over the years:
Be Open Minded and Trust the Process
Let us help you. We offer research and experienced-based approaches to both training and nutrition. Walk through our doors with an open mind. Maybe you trained a certain way in the past with success but it stalled. Don’t get stuck trying to replicate it over and over, rather let us explain why it stalled and how we can move forward. Same goes for nutrition. Maybe you or a friend had some success in the past with a diet, but it stalled like most fad diets do. Let our personal trainer’s explain why and offer you a long-term approach to success. Be coachable.
Optimal Water Intake
This sounds simple, yet most individuals are in a state of dehydration! In 2005-2010 adults averaged around 39 ounces of water a day. Recommended water intake per day is between half an ounce to 1 ounce of water per pound of body weight. For example, if you weigh 180, you need 90 to 180 ounces of water a day. To keep it easy, shoot for a gallon a day. Optimal water intake will improve your fat burning ability, mental clarity, skin health, recovery, immune system, performance, etc. If you nail this down, everything to follow will be more optimal.
Learn to Track Nutrition
Guessing is not the most optimal way to track nutrition. There are many apps out there that make it possible to track caloric, protein, carb and fat intake. Learning to track your food is a necessity. Tracking is an eye opening experience as it reveals where you maybe be sabotaging your goals with excessive and disproportionate amounts of food. By learning to track you will be able to make adjustments based on what works and what does not work. You will get real time feedback on what you are missing or what you need to adjust. Tracking will make you more aware and give our Biosignature practitioners the ability to manage the variables to make any needed adjustments.
Train a Minimum of 3 Times Per Week
Our most successful clients train at least 3 times a week. It’s all about moving. Consistency is key. If you do not work out enough, your muscles will struggle to increase in strength and/or size. Workouts need to build on each other. Even though training is a stressor, it’s also a stress reliever. More workouts equal more calories burned. If you do have time to add a fourth session in per week, research has shown that the results are dramatically increased by 30-40%!
Learn to Manage Stress
We offer many ways to help you reduce your stress levels. This is achieved through lifestyle changes, managing sleep, supplementation, proper training, nutritional adjustments, inflammation support, etc. Clients that achieve great results implement multiple approaches to reducing their stress.
