Ready for a change?
Do you wish you could change something about your life right now?

I’m here to argue that change can happen in an instant.

I know this goes against popular thought. Most people believe that change has to be worked at for months or even years. We expect to try and fail numerous times before we ultimately give up or succeed.

How many people do you know who struggle with their weight? They want to make a healthy change by getting in shape, but the change never seems to take hold.

Is there something in your life that you want to change? Do you have weight to lose? Do you have high blood pressure? Do you have a pair of pants that you wish you could fit into?

What is keeping you from making a positive change in your life?

According to professional speaker and author, Tony Robbins, it’s the getting ready to change that takes time. In the end there’s a single instant when the change occurs. Robbins goes on to outline three specific beliefs that you must have in order to instantly create a lasting change.

Belief #1: Something must change.

Do you sort of want to get into shape, or do you absolutely have to lose the weight? Does dropping a few pounds sound nice, or is living another day in your current body unbearable? In order to make a lasting change you must be convinced that the time has come.

Belief #2: I must change it.

It is vital that you take full responsibility in making the change. Sure, others may assist you, but in the end you are the one who is going to make it happen. You have to need this change enough to make it your personal mission—no one else will do it for you.

Belief #3: I can change it.

Don’t let past failures get in your way. The truth is that you do amazing things when you put your mind to it. Believe that you are capable of losing weight or making any other positive change in your life.

Why do most people fail to make lasting change? They leave it up to willpower. This works for awhile, but you’ll always revert back to what’s comfortable. The solution?

Change what you’re comfortable with.

You’ve probably heard that humans are motivated by two things: 1) to avoid pain and 2) to gain pleasure. When you want to change a behavior pattern the key is to associate pain with the behavior that you don’t want and pleasure with the behavior that you do want.

You know that you want to lose weight and that to do so you need to quit eating comfort food late at night. You also know that you need to start exercising on a regular basis. Up until this point your brain is trained to associate pleasure with eating comfort food late at night and to associate pain with exercise.

It’s time to retrain your brain to feel good about exercise and to feel bad about eating late at night. Think about all of the negative things about being overweight and connect these unpleasant thoughts to your late night snack.

Now think about all of the wonderful things about being in shape and connect these pleasant thoughts to exercise.

You are capable of making a big change in your life.

Remember, change can happen in an instant.

"Angela has done an amazing job in the program! She has consistently taken positive steps forward with her eating and exercise and has continuously improved. She's passed 3 Fitranx levels already and become really strong. She not only has lost 17 pounds but has become really fit. She's shown resilience and determination. Great job Angela!" -Stephanie

"From the very beginning of starting boot camp I noticed Angela was a fierce competitor and would work hard to achieve her fitness goals. I have seen her work very hard and she sure has built muscle as she has worked up achieving Fitranx 3. She attends boot camp regularly and always has such a positive attitude. Despite a scapula injury not long ago, she still attended and did modifications. She is very deserving of Student of the Month. Congratulations Angela!!!" -Tawyana

"Angela is a great inspiration! She makes the workouts so much fun with all the energy she brings to each workout. She has worked hard to eat healthier and always sets goals and consistently keeps working until she achieves those goals. She quickly progressed to level 3 of Fitranx and has become so strong and toned in the process! I can’t wait to see the progress she makes in the next few months! Way to go Angela!" -Ashley

"I always see Angela pushing her hardest during the workouts. She puts in the extra work and almost always is doing a harder progression of an exercise. And, she always comes to workout with a smile!" -Emily

Things are really good, Stephanie. Feeling stronger and better than ever. Celebrated my 60th. Buying new clothes (I've never been in size 6 pants!), did five 5K runs over vacation (one was in 33 minutes -- very flat terrain), water skied, paddle boarded (at Gunpowder Falls, inspired by your field trip), ran a mile in less than 10 minutes. What I thought was a bunion is not bothering me. I haven't taken migraine meds since May -- used to require them 3-4 times per month minimum. I'm doing work outs that were impossible when I first started in February. It's unbelievable what a difference 6 months can make! You are doing God's work 😉! Thank you so much
