If you’re a parent you’ll appreciate this … or if you were a kid once, you’ll appreciate it, as well.
Remember those driving holidays, when 5 minutes down the road the kids were already asking, “Are we there yet?”
The truth is, we have a tendency to do this as adults when it comes to getting fitness results.
“How long is this going to take?”
The honest truth? To achieve your full potential will take the rest of your life.
Not gonna lie to you.
You can, and will, get better with age if you continue working at it and stay consistent.
But don’t get discouraged.
Significant body changes and strength gains can be achieved in as little as 4 weeks for some people believe it or not.
So what should you do? Go for the immediate quick results or play the long game?
The best answer is: Both.
That’s why I recommend that you set short-term and long-term goals.
Seeing progress and changes in how your body looks, how your clothes fit, and how much energy you have can give you all the fuel and momentum you need to keep moving toward those long-term goals … and make it more likely that you’ll achieve them.
So, in answer to my original question: “Are we there yet?”
Depends on what the goal is.
What’s your No. 1 short-term and long-term goal for your fitness and health?
