Take a moment to skim a few highlights of the program below.
Then schedule your discovery session with Lyn today.
my body needs exercise
Think about this: staying active is pretty much the only thing that all scientists agree on. Regardless of age, race, religion, or political views, all science agrees that staying active is important for your health.
Yet, the majority of us struggle to even come close to attaining a baseline of activity to help prevent disease.
i'm HEALING myself
When it's within your control, injury-free must be your decision 100% of the time.
We will discuss how this applies to your specific situation and make a plan for it.
This is the Center for Disease Control's recommendations for the activity YOU NEED to help reduce overall health risks. We compare this to where you are at today and make a plan of action.
YOUR WEEKLY GOAL
150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise
2 days of muscle strengthening
call your doctor
You body is yours alone and you have your own complex set of physical and environmental factors. There is no one size fits all, and that includes exercise and health needs. We look at this together and then you'll take the necessary follow-on steps.
IT'S TIME TO Get social
Going public with your goals is much deeper than making connections and finding accountability. It's the beginnings of shifting how you see yourself and how others see you with regards to being active. It's the first step of what eventually makes all of this stick.
What if my support network feels weak?
Sometimes the people closest to us aren't ready to support our goal, and sometimes they flat-out make it incredibly difficult. Other times, we just feel alone. If you are currently faced with this, then this step will be difficult. It will also be a very important step for you. We will look more closely at how to manage this challenge in future steps.
In the meantime, be sure to schedule your discovery call with Lyn right away. I'm there for you.
PICK-1-BARRIER - AND BREAK IT!
The empowering piece of this exercise is when we recognize that we don't have to break through all of our barriers at all. In fact, most of our barriers can stay right where they are - barriers. Everyone has barriers. I have barriers and always will. You also have barriers to being active and always will.
IT'S TIME TO DIG DEEP
The more clarity you have of your unique life, your goals, and how to get there, the better chance you will have of reaching those goals. This step requires the most sustained focus of all steps in this program.
You are going to dig deep, challenge your assumptions, and see your life in a new light.
You're not giving up
Your transformation has happened very quickly. Now, it will realistically take a full year before you begin to feel settled into your new active life. However, after a year, the magic finally happens. This is when your NEW NORMAL begins to take root. Your new-normal becomes your normal-normal.
Here, we do the work needed to ensure your new transformation sticks. It's one of my favorite sections we'll work through together.
are you stuck?
The struggle is real.
Many of us are facing challenges that are bigger than we realized and might need to make some huge and difficult decisions to transform your life.
It could also mean that you are experiencing a unique season of your life and you need to give yourself extra compassion.
The good news is that when you feel completely stuck, it actually means you haven't given up on your dream to make a breakthrough.
It means there's still hope.
Your massive frustration is where radical transformations begin. We look closely at this together and make a plan.
