Think about the last time you started a new exercise or nutrition program…
You were filled with excitement and had great intentions…at the beginning. Maybe you filled your refrigerator with healthy food, bought new workout clothes for motivation, and even stuck with the program for a while. But, as the days, weeks, and months wore on, your interest waned and you found yourself making excuses about why you couldn’t do it. Right?!
Then you started to get discouraged. You weren’t getting the immediate results you expected. You started skipping your workouts and eating “cheat meals” more often than not. And, instead of the svelte new body you were expecting, the numbers on the scale remained unchanged and you threw in the towel. Right?!
You’re not alone, this is the roller coaster ride many pursuing health and fitness experience.
To be honest, failing to achieve your goals wasn’t entirely your fault.
We were made to life (and health and fitness) in community with others!
A healthy lifestyle change is an ongoing journey and it is understandable to find your motivation fading every once in a while. This is where accountability coaches and partners can really help. By providing you with gentle reminders of the goal you wanted to achieve when you started, walking alongside you thru the ups and downs, and by prodding you to show up via email, texts and daily chats, accountability coaches and partners can help inspire you to continue on your journey.
Enter Actualize! We’re all about relational and metric accountability.
You see, your journey is better if it is not a solitary endeavor. You’ve heard the phrase “it takes a village to raise a child”. Well, the same applies to the pursuit of a healthy, fit lifestyle – you need people with redemptive voices in your corner to help you along the way.
Our goal at Actualize is, when you ask yourself the following questions, that you answer with an emphatic “Actualize!” and hopefully also your closest family and friends too:
- Who will encourage you to pursue your goals, purposes and potential in health, fitness and life?
- Who can you talk to when you are feeling vulnerable and frustrated?
- Who will speak to you frankly and in love if you need a redemptive spanking?
- Who will make sure you show up at the gym?
- Who will make individualized modifications in training and nutrition to meet you where you’re at?
- Where do I feel safe to be where I’m at in my health, fitness and nutrition journey without having to “measure up” to others?
Being accountable to only yourself is relying on yourself and isolatory; it doesn’t work. But, with the support of a the Actualize coaches and a community of like-minded people who understand and support what you are going through and what your end goal is, you are better encouraged and equip to actualize it.
More than being able to discuss your successes and setbacks with a coach, family member, or friend, accountability also encompasses your “why”… as in, “Why did I start this program in the first place?”
What’s your “Why”?
- Do you want to lower your bad cholesterol?
- Do you want to get off medications?
- Do you want to look good for a high school reunion?
- Do you have young children who rely on you and you want to be a good example for?
- Are you getting married and want to look stunning for your upcoming nuptials?
- Do you want to decrease your liklihood of injury?
The list goes on and on…
