There is a tendency in our culture to expect maximum return with minimal investment.
Fast food … Texting … Weight loss … Love …
If something’s going to happen I expect it to happen NOW.
The Minute Movement® program won’t give you that. The focus of this program is not immediate, drastic transformation. While we completely recommend that you work to the point of burnout during each movement, we don’t want you pushing yourself to the point of actual burnout. The focus of this program is creating positive lifestyle changes that really are sustainable for the rest of your life.
The type of fitness program that results in 60 pounds of weight loss in 90 days are not typically sustainable for the rest of your life.
Well, for one thing they’re very time consuming. You are usually required to hit the gym for a minimum of 30 minutes, five days each week. While this type of program can be fun and rewarding and is completely doable when you’re single and work a 9 to 5 job – it doesn’t translate well to the way many of us are actually living our lives. Then you have the diet portion of these programs – which are typically very, very intense.
So, even if you are a person who can fit the workouts into your schedule and won’t have anyone complaining about chicken breast for dinner every night; you may still find yourself feeling exhausted or deprived and eventually reverting to old habits.
Minute Movement is about changing your life – and the way you look at your life. So, while you might not see miraculous changes every time you step on the scales (and we don’t recommend putting too much power in that number anyway) you can be confident you are creating positive habits that you can sustain for the rest of your life.
