Be Accountable

Join our online women fitness group

Join our private online fitness group (sorry men ladies only) to be encouraged, motivated and inspired by others participating in the challenge.  It’s an awesome group and did we mention it’s FREE?  Join HERE.  If you are already a member of Fight For Fit you do not need to join this additional group.

Additional Tips:

  • Have fun with it
  • Don’t speak negative thoughts to yourself – Rome wasn’t built in a day and you won’t lose all the weight in 31 days but you will and feel good about it
  • Be accountable to friends and/or family members
  • Encourage a family member or friend to join you – it has been proven we have a better chance of sticking to a health program when we do it with at least one other person to remain accountable
  • Don’t focus solely on the scale
