Client Spotlight: Cycling

Today I want to share an article that I hope will motivate you and inspire you in your own sports nutrition or fitness journey!

Coachable clients are the best clients. They listen. They implement. They email you and tell you it’s working… how cool is that?! It’s truly the best.

I want to post an article written by a previous client that has completely changed his life by doing something he really enjoys: cycling. From competitive cycling to cyclocross, he does it all. It served as his motivation to go from 305 lbs down to 195 lbs the healthy way: through fitness and good nutrition.

Instead of focusing on the general & vague goal of “I want to lose weight” or “I want to tone up”, set specific and SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, timely) goals to hold yourself accountable. Think… “I am going to cycle 3 times per week” or “I am going to strength train 3 times per week to lose 1 lb per week”. Taking up a new activity can really help with this since you can focus your efforts on fitness goals as well as nutritional goals!

Here’s a little inspiration for your Friday morning:
