Five simple words hold the key to helping you completely transform your body this year.

In fact, the power behind these five words can help you burn fat, build muscle and ultimately get the body you’ve always dreamt of – once and for all.

Are you ready for it? The five words are “get comfortable with being uncomfortable.”

This is the key to any successful and dramatic physique transformation. Let me explain…

Where you are now, is your comfort zone. Your health and fitness goals are where you want to be.
So by definition, your goals are outside of your comfort zone – if they weren’t, then you’d have accomplished them by now.
Which means that in order to achieve the body you want (or any other worthwhile goal in your life) you’re going to have to venture outside of that safe, warm, cosy comfort zone and experience some discomfort.

When it comes to a fitter, more healthy body, it means you’ll have to experience the discomfort of hunger from time to time, it means you’ll have to push yourself in your workouts, and keep pushing even when your muscles are burning and crying for rest.
It means you’ll have to follow your nutrition plan – even on the days you feel like eating pizza and ice cream (or whatever your “sinful” indulgence is).

It means you’ll have to adapt and re-asses when things don’t go according to plan or life throws a curveball at you to see if you’re paying attention.

Getting uncomfortable is what makes us grow. It’s what makes us change for the better. So the sooner you come to terms with it, the sooner you’ll have that body you desire!

The trick to all this, of course, is being able to do those uncomfortable things on a regular basis, and stop yourself from slipping into old habits that are in your comfort zone.

There are four simple tips you can start using today to achieve your fitness goals this year and make “get comfortable with being uncomfortable” your everyday reality.
1. Hold yourself accountable
2. Know your “Why” you want to achieve your dream body
3. Feel the fear and do it anyway
4. Plan your reactions in advance

Remember “Get comfortable with being uncomfortable” in 2015 and you’re bound to achieve your dream body!
