One of the toughest parts about working out and living a healthy lifestyle is staying committed to all aspects. If you really want to build muscle fast and get ripped, you have to stick to workouts and nutrition plan. But, how do you stay motivated? How do you push through on those days that you feel like crap, or pass on the dessert when everyone else around you is eating cake? Many people start out with great aspirations to transform their bodies, but after a while things start to slip. They skip a workout here, or eat a twinkie there, then they throw in the towel.
We all go through these challenges and slip up now an then. One of the best ways to ensure success with your fitness program is to have a support network that you can rely on. The thing that has helped me to overcome many of these challenges in my own P90X Transformation is having a success partner.
A Success Partner is someone who you can share your milestones and failures with. Your success partner helps to keep you accountable to your goals and pushes you back on track when you slip. When choosing your success partner, you want to think about someone who can relate to the goals that you are trying to accomplish. If you are trying to live a healthy lifestyle and build muscle, it helps if your success partner is also working towards similar goals. You should also select someone who you can place your trust in, and can be honest and open with you. You do not want someone who is just going to tell you what you want to hear. A success partner can truly motivate you to stay with your program and stay on track towards your goals.
My success partner is my beachbody coach. I began using a success partner about 6 months ago, and I feel like it has really helped me to stay on track towards my goals. There have been many days that I did not feel like working out at the end of a long hard day. But just knowing that someone was going to check in on me and ask about my workouts, was a reason for me to push through. It doesn't seem like much, but just having that extra bit of accountability helps to keep me motivated.
It is very difficult to do it on your own, but having that success partner will help you get ripped and have the results that you want.
