This week Petra Stevenson answers: “How quickly will I see the results of my training?”

Expect to FEEL the results of your training sooner than you SEE them. 

Typically within 2-3 weeks you’ll feel the benefits of your workouts through improvement in your sleep patterns, mood and energy levels. If youre new to resistance training, increases in strength and stamina can be seen quickly as well. Many of my clients also report that they find daily tasks becoming more effortless, whether that be gardening, carrying in the groceries, or keeping up with their grandkids. Changes in your body composition often take longer to notice -- but the key is consistency! The more consistent you are with your workouts and nutrition plan, the sooner you’ll notice physical changes. Remember, youre trying to make healthy, long-term changes that you can maintain for years to come.

Instead of worrying about the number on the scale or the size of your waist, focus first on the quality of your workouts and how good you feel being more active. Setting some non-aesthetic goals can also help you appreciate all the things your body is capable of, and drive you to work harder. Are you challenging yourself? Are you able to complete more advanced exercises, with better form, and increased resistance? Are you sticking to your plan even when life tries to get in the way? Then you are making substantial progress! Reflecting on how far youve come since day one will help you stay motivated and the physical changes that come will just be a bonus!

To schedule a personalized training session, contact Petra at (707) 684-6535.

Mindful Moments 

Fix your attention to the two trees.  One has a perfectly straight trunk while the other has fuller palms.  Which is more majestic?  Which is more healthy?  Which converts more carbon dioxide into oxygen?  Does any of that really even matter?

Two silhouettes, each with their own unique shape.  Each part of a bigger capture providing beauty and interest.  What if we appreciated each one as it is being part of a collective scene without comparison?  How might you apply that principle to yourself?  Are you able to extend that viewpoint towards other humans?

Thank you for being a wonderful business model for our community as you strive to keep employees and members safe and healthy. Another reason to LOVE Pismo Beach Athletic Club. Stay healthy dear friends!

Time to let go of the past and set our vision on a New Year!  Many of us create New Year goals with the intent of helping us live happier lives. While our intentions are pure, less than 8% of us stick to our goals. Our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Ginger Cochran gives us a simple formula to help you reach your goals!

1. Create Your Vision
Take time to write down exactly how you want to feel, what you want to be doing, and who you want to be in the next year. Write as if you are already this person. Act as if you are that person and write down your healthy habits on paper. Put this paper somewhere you will see and read it often.
2. Keep it Positive
Negative feeds more negativity by drawing our attention to it. When writing your goals and vision, keep it positive. Don’t write, “I won’t eat chocolate before bed.” Instead, write “I will go to PBAC on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday,” or better yet, Send your attention towards the positive to create that reality. 
3. Make it SMART
SMART goals stand for Specific Measurable Achievable and Realistic and Time-bound. 

To write a SMART goal, you must do the following:

* Be Specific. For example, “I want to lose 20 lbs by March.” That paints a better picture of what exactly you want to achieve.

* Make it Measurable. Whether our completion of the goal. For every goal r example, “I will go to yoga 4x a week.” If you go three days a week, you know the goal is 75% complete, and you have more to work towards. 

* Make it Achievable. The only way to grow is to push yourself outside your comfort zone. To do this, you want to set a goal that stretches you out of your comfort zone but is not so unrealistic that it likely won’t be completed. 

* Make it Relevant. Make a resolution connected to your values and goals and not outside influences. Take a moment to sit down and think about what matters to you. Avoid making resolutions to please others. 

* Make it Time-Bound. Make your goal time-bound so you can see when you complete your goal. 

The New Year is an exciting time, and we at PBAC are here to support you! Think positive and sit down and write out those goals. You got this!
