“Those who fail to plan, plan to fail”
Hey everybody, Coach Mike here. This may be the number one reason people fail to achieve their goals.
And we just can’t have that. Especially during the holidays.
If you are a member of M Factor Online Training you will be happy to know it only takes a few minutes to plan your month.
And it may be the most beneficial 5-10 minutes of your workout week.
That sounds like a big statement but trust me on this.
So let’s get to it.
Special Announcement: I am setting up the first month for all new members. After you sign up, let me know what you want to work on and what equipment you have/days you can work out etc… and I will program a month of workouts for you.
Important Point #1: Always know what workout you have planned.
If you don’t have a plan you are going to either skip the workout or wing it.
I can spot an improvised workout a mile away and they never are pretty. I used to train a client at a private club. As we were training, I would see people wandering aimlessly between the bicep curl machine and the treadmill. Kind of like a Walking Dead. Except they weren’t killing humans, they were looking for ways to kill time. I am not sure which is worse!
My online training includes a bunch of workouts that are already designed for you and they are in sequence. All you have to do is drop them into the calendar.
Hint: Until you get familiar with the warm-up and cool-down exercises, include them in your calendar.
Important Point #2: Plan the week, don’t go day by day.
Sit down at the same time every week and plan out what you are going to do. As you will see in the video, when you schedule a workout ahead of time you activate the reminder system. This way you get a notification everyday that you need to workout. Pretty cool!
Also, planning your workouts ahead of time will help you build mental discipline. The more you hammer into your head the idea of having workouts at set times, the more likely you are to do them.
That being said, things will come up from time to time. if that is the case, just tap on your workout and reschedule it. No worries.
Important Point #3 :Do what you can, not what you think I want to see.
- Did you know I can see your calendar?
- Did you know I get a message when you either complete or miss a workout?
Well, now you do. So don’t program a ton of workouts on weeks when you are going to be running around like crazy.
This is your workout. I understand that some weeks are more hectic than others. I would rather have you put in fewer workouts and complete them than put in a boat load full and miss most of them.
Success in fitness is based on completed workouts not missed ones!
Final Important Point: Ask questions!!!
Let’s be honest here. I do have a bunch of clients so I am not waiting around for someone to email me a question. But on the other hand, if I don’t hear from you I have to wonder what is going on. You are not bothering me if you have a question or concern. I want to hear from you.
I feel my online training is the best online personal training out there but it doesn’t work unless you use it.
There are no silly questions.
I will always have time to answer your questions and will do whatever I can to make sure you are successful.
So watch the video and take time to set up your month.
You can’t mess anything up so go for it.
