Today’s guest post comes from motivational speaker and life coach, Stacey Flowers. After watching her transformation before my eyes via Instagram, I knew we had to get her here on My Fab Fico. If Stacey’s Gym-less transformation doesn’t motivate you I don’t know what will.
Right now many people are signing up for gym memberships in hopes of sculpting their dream body. But instead of mastering health and fitness, they end up with a financial contract and limited results.
People experience disappointment with a gym membership because a membership won’t give you the pictured results– but working out will.
For me, the proof is in the pudding and the pudding was achieving the pictured results without a gym membership. Hopefully these steps and my results can inspire you to achieve your fitness goals and save you a little money this year!
Four strategies for radically successful FREE fitness results:
4. Document your progress (even the small changes)!
I started the squat challenge because my friends commented on how flat my butt was. I didn’t really care to pay that much attention, but my best friend and I took a few bikini photos and to my horror my butt looked like a grandma spoof Instagram picture.
Seeing that snapshot told me I had to do something and fast! So I searched for a solution, and found Jen Selter , a woman with a similar body build as my own and a workout routine for my rump.
By day 7, I was astounded that my bottom was actually beginning to take shape. But it’s only because I mastered strategy 3.
3. Follow the instructions
When it comes to working out for free and getting great results, you must follow the instructions to a T. You are not a trained professional so when you deviate even a little from the outlined plan you sabotage your results.
Most at home routines are designed to get progressively harder. So if you add heels (when the instructions don’t tell you too), your body won’t retain the results.
Which brings me to strategy 2.
2. Be stronger than your strongest excuse AND get an accountability partner.
The truth is fitness and happiness don’t cost us as much monetarily as we think, but we use money as our primary excuse for not creating healthier happier lives.
You can overcome this excuse by finding accountability partners. You’ll need someone to vent your pain, compare notes and push you to keep going.
Which brings us to the final strategy for radically successful fitness results.
1. Respect your body – it’s the only one you get!
I’ve received mixed reviews about my progress because people believe that since I started with a leaner frame my bootylicious results weren’t real.
My response: You don’t have to wait until you’re drastically unhealthy and unfit to upgrade things in your life. Sculpting a better bottom was about respecting my body. I am working out at home out of respect for my body, my bank account and my mental health.
I shared my results because to me healthy is happy.
