The 1% rule

When beginning a fitness journey, many of us fall into the trap of making big lifestyle changes all at once. From long periods of inactivity to suddenly working out daily, or transitioning from indulgent eating habits to strict diets, this drastic approach often leads to burnout and disappointment.

You’re not alone … and it’s not your fault.

Instead of extremes, try the 1% rule. Simply aim to be 1% better than you were yesterday. Whether it’s moving a bit more, making healthier food choices, reducing stress, improving sleep, increasing water intake or adding more veggies to your meals – small, incremental changes can pave the way to success.

There’s no such thing as a perfect workout or diet, quick fixes or flawless plans on social media. The answer is you and the circumstances you face every day. By focusing on being 1% better most days, steady and sustainable progress can be yours.

It’s not about perfection; it’s about consistently making small improvements. They all add up over time and lead to big results that will make you proud.
