Reach for it!!!

Many are challenged by society to reach a bit. Why can’t we try to be a better self? Or is it that they aren’t there right now? This doesn’t mean you can’t be fun, responsible, family person, etc, etc.

What is reaching? Going after your ability and body you have with in you would define it. If you do the following, your potential will be seen:

-SLEEP-make sure it is regular with time going to be and waking along with assessing if you did what is needed to make it efficient with eating, fluid and training load. Make sure it is enough. Most adults need 6-8hrs to recover & be fresh mentally and physically.

-EAT RIGHT-make sure you know what your calorie need is per day. There are calculators to help figure this online. You can measure with a calorie burn measuring device too. Weighing daily can help you understand if you are managing your weight that will be inline with your goals. When you shop, put in the cart what you know will feed your goals. Have food prepared and available so you can make good choices when times are busy or stressful. Logging your food can help you assess if you are meeting your targets.

-TRAIN WITH A PLAN- Set your target and work backwards to today. Decide how much intensity you need a week/month and what duration makes senesce per your goal. Having assessments along the way will keep you accountable to your weekly routine. Including others like a coach, training group and training partner will help you stay accountable to showing up too.

-SCHEDULE-setting up your weekly workouts and other commitments help so much! Also, the body will perform, you will be interested and you will recover if you set up your meals, fueling, supplementing and hydration for your workouts, work, meetings, life and sleep.

-SUPPLEMENT-many products are proven to help your body and goals. Multi-Vitamin is a place to start. Then determine what type of meal replacement will support your goal and schedule. Then more specific products are out there for joint durability, mental motivation, recovery rate and body composition.

TFP Staff is prepared to help you reach. We get people started, help them stay interested and help the reach what didn’t seem possible. Just let us know when you are ready!
