Everyone asks what are my secrets to staying fit? I always say that there are no secrets; it is all hard work, good information and consistency!
This is true BUT I started thinking about it & there are several things that all super fit people I know and work with have in common. Then I realized that maybe these are the secrets that you guys have asked about! 

So I am here to share with you the Top 10 secrets that super fit people have in common. Print this out & add these items to your list of fitness & health goals today!  

1) Lifestyle: 
All super fit people look at their behaviors as part of their lifestyle not as a fad. These types of people are fit all year round! They do not crash diet before a reunion or over exercise to try to counter act eating far too much over the holidays. These people are what I call "lifers".

2) They eat:  
Have you ever noticed that your super fit friends are always eating? This is a top secrets to staying healthy and trim. To keep your metabolism going you need to eat approximately every 3 hrs. Super fit people know that starving your body is just as dangerous as overeating. 

3) No loners allowed:
You will find that most super fit people belong to group or have a coach. There is so much to know about being healthy and fit; it really helps you to "be your best you" by learning from others. Whether it is joining a running group, going to yoga class, getting a trainer or attending an organic cooking workshop; people are often times most successful & feel the motivated in groups.

4) Good climbers:
A huge key to their success is that they set very specific goals, write them down, purse them, over come obstacles and keep climbing! I always say that my health and fitness journey is like a ladder;  there are many rungs that I need to climb and each one signifies a significant success for me. I have pitfalls and have to go back to the drawing board from time to time. But I NEVER stop climbing because I know my journey is never over.

5) Sleep:
Super fit people are not found out  partying @3am. They are sleeping and allowing there bodies to get the rest, recover and time to repair that they need to perform at their highest level!

6) Not scale obsessed:
They have been in the game long enough to know that the scale is no reflection of how fit they are. Being scale obsessed is unhealthy & completely unproductive.

7) Green freaks: 
Whether it is powdered green drinks, juicing their veggies or steaming a head of broccoli with dinner super fit people realize that they need to eat their veggies! Vital nutrients, vitamins and minerals are in leafy green veggies so the more you eat the more fit you will be.

8) H20:
One of the easiest ways to lose weight is to drink water & since 70% of your body is water it is crucial that you get enough of it. If you are an active person you should get at least 2/3 of an ounce of water per pound of body weight each & every day!

9) Comfort Zone:
Super fit people always push themselves to new levels & they let themselves get uncomfortable! Your body will never change if you do the same thing over & over again that did not work for you before. Exploring new routines, experimenting with cleansing, and new foods can often get you over your plateau & get your body to the super fit level.

10) Rewards:

I can not stress enough how important it is to realize that super fit people are just like you and they like sweets or piece of pizza now and then. ALL super fit people I know reward themselves with "treat meals". I personally am not a fan of the term "cheat meal". That invokes feelings of guilt and that is not healthy! When you work hard to deserve to treat yourself & that is how you stay balanced & motivated!

Now that you have all the secrets of super fit people I encourage you to work your hardest to be your best you and incorporate some of these steps into your own life!
