How long it really takes to get results
I've got a good one for you today — this is something I get asked about all the time:
How long does it take to get results from your fitness routine?
This email will lay it all out for you but I also want you to keep one important thing in mind …
PLEASE do NOT get into the “crash” mindset, where you try to speed your way toward your goals.
That can end badly, with you feeling frustrated, tired, sore (or worse!) … and then completely giving up.
It’s so much more rewarding (and healthier) to enjoy the process!
Plus, everything that you learn and experience along the way will help you KEEP all of your amazing results.
All of what I am about to say depends on a few things, like:
- Your health & fitness history
- Your current health & fitness level
- Your workouts and/or the food you eat
- How stressed you are and how much sleep you’re getting
- The distance between you and your goal
With all of that said: it’s fun to see and feel the results of all your efforts! Plus, it can be incredibly empowering.
You might notice you feel less stressed, your mood is up, and you sleep better. You’ll feel proud of yourself for taking action!
RESULTS IN 2–3 DAYS:
Your muscles might feel a little more “activated” and maybe a little soreness — like they’ve been working (but in a good way!).
You also will start to feel more energy.
RESULTS IN 2–3 WEEKS:
This is when you start to gain some real momentum. If changing the number on the scale is a goal, you’ll start to notice that happen (if not sooner).
If you’ve been feeling sore after your workouts, you might start to notice it happening less often, or being less intense.
You’ll also notice an uptick in your overall fitness (stamina, strength, and endurance).
Plus, you’ll start to gain real confidence in yourself, and will be proud of yourself for sticking with your new routine! You’ll really feel great and have a renewed sense of energy.
RESULTS IN 4–8 WEEKS
You’ll start to see and feel positive shifts in your body and mind across the board.
And if you miss a day or two, you’ll notice how it affects your mood and/or energy.
RESULTS IN 8–12 WEEKS
This is when people will start noticing and ask what you’re doing that’s new!
You will be significantly stronger than you were on Day One … your energy will be up … your cardio fitness will be better … and you’ll be on your way towards dialing in healthy habits to last a lifetime.
Now imagine how it would feel to wake up 12 weeks from now … after sticking with your workouts and experiencing these results for yourself.
Pretty awesome, right?
Well it really all IS achievable — especially with the right plan and the accountability to help keep you on track.
Whether or not we ever work together, I KNOW you can do it if you set your mind to it.
Yours In Health,
