Free Fitness Challenge:
If I told you that all it took to get started with your New Year’s resolution to get fit was 3 minutes, would you believe me?
Really think about it- would you be willing to commit to just three minutes today and every day thereafter?
And would you truly see this thing through with me if I told you that it wouldn’t cost you anything to get started?
Perhaps it sounds a little too good to be true, but hear me out…
You see, I’m not promising overnight results- that’s not how this process works. What I am saying though, is that those three minutes, compounded over time have the power to lead to some pretty astonishing results.
Earlier this week on the blog, we discussed an effective approach to making weight loss easier.
In case you missed it- You can read the full article here, Making Weight Loss Easier: The Importance of Having the Right Mindset.
But if it’s the cliff notes that you’re after, then the main takeaways were as follows:
- Weight loss is the result of small, actionable steps.
- We believe weight loss to be difficult because the results are invisible in the short term.
- When applied consistently, those small & actionable steps towards a healthy lifestyle lead to big results.
‘Consistency’ is something deep in my heart that I know to be true. At the same time it’s something that I’ve had a hard time not only explaining to others but also backing it up with some sort of evidence.
So these past 30 days I challenged myself to prove to you that fitness doesn’t have to be an intense, ‘all or nothing’ lifestyle. Becoming healthy & fit is something that we are all capable of- no matter our age or level of experience.
My plan: perform a minimum of 65 air squats each day.
Yes, air squats- no gym required, no equipment needed, nothing fancy at all, just me.
The reps could be divided in any which way as long as by the end of the day all 65 squats were completed. At a comfortable intensity, I can perform nearly 20 squats in 30 seconds.. so yes, 65 though it sounds like a lot, took me less than 3 minutes of my day to complete.
That’s three minutes I spent squating while watching T.V., or while waiting on dinner to cook, or while on break at work. Anywhere i had just a little bit of space to crank out squats, I would.
You know what happened?
Those seemingly insignificant 3 minutes each day added up to big results.
This month alone I’ve completed nearly 2000 squats.
In all honesty, that blows my mind. Had you told me to crank out all 2000 squats at once, I probably would have rolled my eyes at you and made some snide comment. What’s more, I can guarantee that I wouldn’t have made it a habit to perform 2000 squats each day after that. No, most certainly my fitness journey would have ended right then and there (after only one day…) – defeating the purpose of pursuing an active lifestyle in the first place, eh?
Consistency works, friends.
