Habits just don’t dissipate when a new year arrives. In particular, one’s health habits are amongst the hardest ones to take up when the clock strikes 12 on 31 December.
New Year’s Resolutions: too many of us have them and too few of us hold onto promises they make. Statistics have shown that a mere 9% remain committed to their resolutions until the next 31 December arrives. This means that more than 90% fall back to the same habits after 12 months, and affirms he/she will change when we again welcome a new year.
Of all New Year’s Resolutions, more than 80% are connected to any specific form of health upgrade. The list of health goals is extensive; from losing weight, stopping smoking, or being more active, there are ample examples that came out of our surveys.
This vast number of people are looking for a personal trainer, support on habits, and enrolling in gym memberships to inspire their health goals. Unfortunately, the majority of personal trainers and gyms do not provide the coaching support to create lasting change and transformation. The industry is therefore broken.
There are so many options available, one can take to redeem optimal health. Personal training programs, online fitness training, nutrition coaching, group class workouts, CrossFit, you name it, Fitness Bangkok has it stored in its directory.
The options are immense.
The solutions are less so.
The key to results, long-lasting change, and transformation are based on coaching habits. Workouts are easy. Joining a gym or health club is easy. Being told to do 20 reps of squats, push-ups, and burpees against a clock is easy.
The transformation takes place in the coaching of habits outside of these workouts and exercise sessions.
Building sustainable habits around nutrition, energy, sleep, and stress are all essential to the end game of results and living in optimal health and fitness.
It is all about habit changes and taking responsibility and becoming accountable for the actions we do want to take.
