Every time a new year dawns, millions of folks dust off a fitness or health resolution that ends up fading by Valentine’s Day. Sound familiar? Not this year! Join me and set a better goal, one that you can stick with, enjoy and most importantly, one that works.
Oh, and let’s start today. (Why wait until January 1st?)
We aren’t going to cut calories or go on a fad diet. We are going to resolve to get more of the thing proven to keep us feeling young, chronic disease at bay and our weight a non-issue. This new year, build and protect your lean muscle level. (That’s your LML on Koko FitCheck!)
I’m fired up that all our Koko FitClub members around the country now have access to our new, patented FitCheck technology. Now you’ll be able to quantify the great Koko results happening inside your body. (The ones I’m always telling you about and you “feel,” but you can’t always see right away.) FitCheck is the tool we will use to track this totally different (and did I mention better?) new year’s fitness resolution.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to drive your LML number upward through regular Smartraining workouts over the course of 8 weeks and then again over the course of a second 8 weeks. You wont be alone, I have everyone at Koko headquarters getting their strength, cardio and FitCheck on!
Here’s what to do to get started. Next time you head in for a workout at your local Koko FitClub, climb on FitCheck and get your LML and eBMI (enhanced body mass index) measurements. Your measurements will be recorded and charted for you automatically and you can track them on your personal MyKokoFitClub.com website under the “My Fitness” tab. At minimum, take weekly measurements and check in online occasionally. Keep in mind over the short term you will see some ups and downs – it’s normal and to be expected. The real payoff will be looking at the sum total of those measurements after you have completed your first 8 weeks and then after 16 weeks.
If you consistently get to Koko FitClub for strength and cardio 3 times a week for 8 weeks, you will be very happy with the changes you see in your lean muscle levels and eBMI. And, after 16 weeks? Forget about it! (Plus, you can pat yourself on the back for sticking to your resolution way past Valentine’s Day!)
Keep me posted on your progress. (You can post them right here as a comment.) I want to know the strength programs that you are on as well as your baseline and follow-up numbers. Both your eBMI and LML interest me, but I’m most tuned into seeing what happens to your lean muscle level.
Good luck, stay in touch and have a happy, healthy holiday season!
