Deep Focus for Better Fitness

We spend a lot of time explaining the importance of knowing your body if you want to transform it.

But what are the big picture questions that help us cultivate the skill to focus and reach our goals?

What are the major changes to your life required by this commitment?

How do we use small scale habits to reach large scale goals?

What is the ‘elevator pitch’ summary of what it means to know your body and transform it with DexaFit?

We do this by embracing three general commitments:

1) Develop a system to train your ability to concentrate.

We need to practice focus. Most people won’t do it though. But those who do often produce at superhuman levels compared to their peers.

2) Be more concrete and aware.

Can you describe your current cognitive ‘calisthenics’ routine? Just like you describe your exercise routines?

3) Protect your occasions to focus.

It's rare when long blocks of time rarely stumble into our schedule. You have to fight for your time to focus on your transformation.

How do we do this?

Here are a few ideas shared by our clients over the years and practiced by us...

+ Leave five hours per week protected on your calendar. Each session should be at least 90 minutes long.

+ Show respect for your attention. Wield your attention like a well-honed tool. If you're serious about your goals, be serious about how you treat your attention.

+ Quit a few things in your life. It could be anything from social media, electronics at night, or even relationships. The details don’t matter. The intention does.

+ Make one non-trivial change in your life. Prove to yourself that you can make your attention a priority over superficialities.

Once you act on these commitments, you free up two of our scarcest resources.

Time and Energy.

How do we act on these commitments?

Every situation is different. Not every strategy is appropriate for the same person. All we can do is cultivate curiosity and focus then discover which ones are best for our situation.

For example...

One way to improve focus is to avoid ‘to-do lists’ and ‘schedule time’ instead.

For some, this approach might work well. For others, it might be completely unworkable.

But if you commit to the three general ideas above and find ways to act on them, you will thrive.

You will experience more success, discover more meaning, and experience a less cluttered mind.

It's important to track your progress and hold yourself accountable though.

That's where our testing comes in to help you.

We're like your 'fitness' guardian angel during your transformation.

We make sure you get the most accurate information about your body so you can make the best decisions.

We help you learn from your history of habits and lifestyle choices and judge their worth.

We show you the best decisions others have made on their journies.

But also the worst!

Knowing this information empowers you with a new way of thinking about problems. Something that may go against your instincts or biases...

Those unwilling to embrace this attitude live under a veil of ignorance and guessing. They rely on rationalization instead of intention. Excuses over accountability.

Pointing fingers at circumstances instead of thumbs at themselves.

Or they're just not paying attention.  

Either way they’re stuck and need to move.

In the world of business, Dr. Robert Ronstadt calls this ‘The Corridor Principle.’

He argued the act of starting a business sets an entrepreneur in motion down a corridor which leads other corridors.

These would not be visible unless the he founded the original business.

The same is true with our health and fitness.  If we don’t measure our baseline, we will never know what plan is best for our body and metabolism.

So if you’re stuck and not sure how to move forward, sometimes movement is all that's needed.

Move to measure your body and know it better.

Track your progress to unveil new opportunities and transform yourself in a meaningful way.

Discover what plan is best for you.
