The best way to get in shape, according to successful people

Do you ever wonder what the best form of exercise is to get in shape?

Personally, I’m a huge fan of going to the gym and lifting weights 3-4 times a week combined with lots of walking, some mobility or yoga, and doing fun active things like hiking or dancing.

To me, that’s the best way.

But I’m actually wrong.

There is no best way.

The truth is that people have built great bodies and gotten impressive results with a variety of different methods.

Weightlifting… Running… CrossFit… Martial Arts… Soccer… Swimming… Surfing… Dancing… Yoga…

So if you find yourself wondering about this often, my suggestion to you is that you focus LESS on what’s the BEST way to get in shape and rather focus MORE on what all of those successful people have in common.

The 2 things that successful people have in common:

  1. They work hard, consistently.
  2. They do that over a long period of time.

There are no shortcuts.

If your goal is to be in great shape, then it’s less about what form of exercise you do and it’s more about what you can commit to doing consistently well over a long period of time.

Don’t worry, this isn’t a cop-out answer.

It’s actually a very liberating answer.

  • Do you have a gym membership? Great! Commit to working hard at the gym consistently over a long period of time.
  • Don’t have a gym membership? Great! Commit to working hard with home workouts consistently over a long period of time.
  • Prefer to run? Great! Commit to working hard out on the road consistently over a long period of time.
  • Enjoy doing yoga? Great! Commit to working hard with those poses and movements consistently over a long period of time.

It’s reassuring to know that you don’t need to get overwhelmed with the nitty-gritty details and analysis paralysis trying to figure out what the best thing to do is, right?

Just focus on doing the basics really really well – better than anyone else.

There are people who have been working out at the gym, running, or doing yoga for 20+ years and they still focus on doing the basics consistently more than anything else.

So whatever you choose to do or are able to do:

  1. Work hard consistently.
  2. Do that over a long period of time.

(This applies to more than just exercise too by the way).
