Consistency over Intensity.

Here is our member Dylan (an absolute legend btw),


Pretty phenomenal results as you can see and this isn't even the most updated photo of him!


The point of this email is to explain the most important thing in getting results like this.......


Consistency!


How many of you have set a fitness goal and chased it like your possesed?


Im sure most of us have done this at some point. 2 weeks of tracking calories religiously, 6 workouts a week, 20K Steps and not having one single treat sound familiar?


Let me ask, what happened? I'm guessing for a lot of you, you crashed and burned. It was simply too much and too big change too soon. While intensity can be and is useful consistency is where the real gains are made.


Let's use a workout example over 8 weeks (a decent length of time to make sustained and noticeable change).


-8 Week Example 1:

Weeks 1 and 2- 6 Workouts per week.

Weeks 3 and 4- 2 Workouts per week,

Weeks 5 and 6- 1 Workout.

Weeks 7 and 8- 0.


Total workouts- 18


-8 Week Example 2

8 Weeks of 3 workouts a week- 24 Workouts.


Then the real magic........after 8 weeks exercise is clearly consistent and has became a habit so we can now add the intensity. We may now up it to 5 workouts a week.


The important thing is that we've done it at a time and when were in a position that it'll stick.


Remember my all important favourite quote- Getting 1% better each day leaves you 37% better over a year! What a massive number that is.
