Time To Write A New Story!

Posted on: January 1st, 2016 by Rachel Cosgrove

It’s a New Year, a blank slate! Turn the page to start a brand new story for yourself. If you are using the excuse that everyone sets goals and resolutions on the New Year and you don’t want to be like everyone else…why not? Why not use the energy of a new year to stimulate change and growth and decide what you want to happen in 2016?

Plus don’t worry…you won’t be like everyone else if you commit to yourself and actually follow through because as you know most people start the year with good intentions only to waver in their commitment. Don’t be like everyone else but do take advantage of this time of year to create a turning point in your life.

Over the holidays we had friends and family stay with us and saw Alwyn’s brother for the first time in a year. One year ago on New Years Day he had a heart-to-heart talk with a close friend of his and decided “This year I need to make some changes.” He set some very specific goals including to lose 100lbs.

Seeing him this Christmas he was 102 lbs lighter!  Wow! A different person! So proud of him and his commitment! And the best part is that he has confidence to set new goals and changes for 2016 to continue to improve himself.

This was a reminder to me that people do make lifelong changes at this time of year.  Every year we see clients join our gym and finally get on a path to improve their health & fitness. Every year at this time I love to look back at the list of people who joined last January & February and see what progress they have made and what they have accomplished all because they made the decision to take action one year ago.

Alwyn & I have always loved the New Year. In fact, it is one of our favorite holidays! We always take time to write down new goals, create new Vision Boards and set our sights on what we want to happen as the year unfolds ahead of us…what trips to do we want to take, what courses do we want to invest in, what books do we want to read, who do we want to meet, what new skills do we want to learn, what career and financial goals do we want to hit for ourselves personally and for our company and of course as fitness professionals we always have physical goals we want to accomplish.

  • Take time today to write down goals for 2016. Make sure they are important enough to you that you will commit and follow through to make them happen.
  • Create a Vision Board with the goals written on along with pictures that resonate with you representing each goal and place it somewhere you’ll see everyday to keep you focused and remind you of your commitment to yourself for 2016.
  • Take action immediately toward those goals to start your momentum. You can’t set goals and walk away from them. You have to start now to take massive action toward them.

As a coach I love reading, studying and learning what will work best for our clients to get the fastest results in the shortest amount of time. Even more so I always love to coach from a place of having experienced it myself first hand if possible.

In 2015 two of our coaches started our first Spartan Team. I hadn’t done a Spartan Race before and hadn’t planned on it as it really didn’t appeal to me…I was amazed that 30 of our members who they hand picked were game to do this! In all honesty I signed up out of integrity that I couldn’t let 30 of our clients do this without knowing what they were experiencing. I signed up to have the experience as a coach to know what is involved. This was the first time at Results Fitness that I had the perspective of being a part of one of our teams as an athlete with absolutely zero experience with the event and what’s in store, being coached completely, trusting our coaches who do have experience with Spartan races. I had a blast at the race and will sign up for another Spartan Race again but more importantly going through the process I have new ideas of how to coach our clients to conquer a Spartan Race the next time around.

This year at Results Fitness we are offering a chance to dramatically change your life in just 42 days. I’m so excited about this program and what it will do for those who jump onboard for the opportunity to immerse themselves and make the commitment to join us 6 days a week for 6 weeks. The program is influenced by the philosophies we already teach at Results Fitness as it was created by one of our Results Fitness University Affiliate gyms who were named our Business Owners of the Year of 2015, Casey & Gerry Washack who own Next Level Fitness! We wanted to fully endorse them as part of our team by running their program at Results and giving our members the opportunity to experience it!

As I consider my own goals for 2016 I’m ready for my own pendulum to swing away from some of the habits I have fallen into of nutritional free styling (yes even us fitness professionals have our periods of relaxing a little too much…). What better way than to give the Fit in 42 program a go to be able to speak from experience as our clients take on the commitment.

What are your goals in 2016?
