Five Ways To Build Bulletproof Consistency
CONSISTENCY IS KING
You’ve heard this one before?
Maybe it was even me who told you?
Well I’m here to say it again, except this time elaborate on it more & then reveal to you FIVE WAYS on how to be consistent ALL THE TIME!
Because without consistency you will not be fully equipped to walk down the path of Body Transformation Success!
It is the most powerful tool you can use & pretty trumps over everything when it comes to getting RESULTS
If you want to make progress & improve your fitness & health you MUST be consistent
So to kick us off for this topic I need you to first have a better understanding of what consistency is
In a nutshell it basically means following through with a plan….
Sounds simple? Yes. Common sense? I think so
Yet I find many people (including myself at times) fail to realise that this can only occur with repeatedly goal-orientated-action – the keys to consistency
Each action requires Commitment, Persistence & Effort for the magic to work
Now try to think of a time where you have accomplished something great with INCONSISTENT Actions & Efforts?
Can you think of any? Let me know when you do
The same goes when trying to achieve a ‘Great Body’
Imagine you set yourself up for a goal of losing 10kg over a 6 month period (a common goal for a lot of people)
In this scenario let’s say you are INCONSISTENT with your plan;
You only meal plan SOMETIMES, track food when you FEEL LIKE IT, eat better food choices ON OCCASION or only workout WHEN TIME ALLOWS
What do you think your results would be like?
Not too crash hot I bet (in fact I have seen it)
But…what do you think would happen if you stuck to the plan & expressed CONSISTENT Actions on a daily basis?
You would slowly build new habits & start seeing the results of your hard work
YAY! That’s more like it
All through applying your time & effort CONSISTENTLY RIGHT!
Which anything worth doing is worth doing right
So now that you have a better understanding let’s look at FIVE WAYS to help you become more effectively consistent
How to become more Consistent?
1. Establish your starting baseline
These are the questions I want you to be able to answer to form that base point;
Where am I now?
What are my goals?
What is holding me back?
What is my current level of fitness?
What’s my current weight & body fat percentage?
What does my nutrition look like on a day-day basis?
Could you answer them? Great. Now write them down & keep them as reference
Not sure how to answer them?
Lucky for you….At The Body Consultants we are more than willing to help explore these questions with you.

2. Have a Concrete Game Plan
You must have a plan to be successful in the body transformation game
You wouldn’t approach your job with a “just wing it” mentality, and if you do.. I just wanna know how that’s working out for you 😉
So the same goes for your nutrition & training plan
The BEST plan will always be one that you can stay CONSISTENT with
You should have an idea of what it is going to take to get those results
It should form the backbone of a CONSISTENT plan which
1.) Allows for Measurement
2.) Creates Accountability
3.) Provides Stability, Regularity & Dependability
4.) You can tweak & change as circumstances change
This can be best achieved through setting SMART GOALS that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timely
After you SMART goals have been written you can easily be segment it into monthly, weekly & daily tasks
Examples of task could include:
• Setting aside time each week to create a meal plan and grocery list
• Making meal prep a part of a regular routine eg: 2hrs on a Sunday afternoon
• Establishing workout schedule each month that works for you
• Tracking food, water & sleep daily
If you are not really sure how to set SMART GOALS to get you from point A to point B don’t hesitate to book email me to book a consult.
If you missed it the first time.
3. Have a back-up plan
Life is always going to throw challenges at you
So it is vital that your plan can be flexible to adapt to these challenges
My best advice is recognise the obstacles coming your way (extra hours at work, family visiting, kids out of school for holidays etc.)
By planning ahead you can ensure long term consistency
Remember life rarely calms down….
So don’t be that person waiting for it to happen as you may end up waiting a long time
4. Hold yourself accountable
Review your goals everyday
Ask yourself “Did I do the necessary steps needed to move me closer to my goals today?”
If your answer is ‘Yes’ terrific you are being consistent
If you answer is ‘No’ think about what you are going to do to get right back on track
Holding yourself accountable allows you to make clearly quantified adjustments as you go along – helping you STAY motivated & finding the sweet spot where things work
It also keeps you COMPLIANT
In order to achieve a true body transformation you MUST be at least 90% compliant
At The Body Consultants we like our member to follow the 90% rule
Let me put this into perspective…
If in one month your plan includes;
4 weeks x 4 workouts = 16 workouts
28 days x 5 planned meals = 140 meals
Therefore, in order to hold yourself accountable for the month you must:
Give it your all in 14 workouts minimum & follow a minimum 126 pre-planned meals
Leaving you with 2 workouts to spare if need be & 14 free meals to fall back on
5. Practice makes progress
If Consistency is King….then MOMENTUM IS HIS QUEEN
The key to long term consistency is building momentum (from practice)
And this requires knowing how to start again immediately when you mess up
No need to beat yourself up about it just consider it practice
The more you practice the better you will get at it. I promise
And there you have it..
FIVE STEPs you can adopt to become more consistent for results!
