How to Audit Your Health

How to Audit Your Health | Arangio

Each season is almost like a miniature year.

Thinking about how quickly seasons change got me thinking about how life goes by pretty fast, too.

How many winters, springs, summers, and falls do you have left?

Tomorrow is not guaranteed so make sure you’re spending your life the way you want to.

Springtime is a good excuse to clean out and organize your home and/or office, and maybe take a fresh look at your budget and finances.

Now you have an opportunity to audit your health and fitness too.

How to Audit Your Health

Smiles and positivity do not happen because life is always easy.

In fact, it's because life is hard.

You have to trust and believe that the obstacle is the way.

The struggle makes you better, especially if you want to succeed.

How do you feel? How do you look?

Now, ask yourself, “How do I want to feel and look?”

Chances are, a few things would have to change in order to get there.

Here are some steps you can take to audit your health:

  • Get a physical exam: Schedule a comprehensive physical exam with your healthcare provider. This will give you an overview of your current health status, identify any underlying health conditions, and help you set goals for improving your health.
  • Assess your lifestyle: Take an honest look at your lifestyle habits such as diet, exercise, stress management, and sleep. Identify areas that need improvement and create a plan to make changes.
  • Evaluate your mental health: Mental health is just as important as physical health. Take time to reflect on your emotions, stress levels, and overall mental wellbeing. Resistance training is a useful tool in your mental-wellness toolbox; however, seek professional help if needed.
  • Review your medical history: Take time to review your medical history and family medical history. This can help identify any potential risk factors and guide your health goals.
  • Get necessary screenings and tests: Follow recommended guidelines for routine health screenings such as mammograms, colonoscopies, and blood tests. From personal experience, a colonoscopy is not my idea of a good time. But you know what's even less fun? Colon cancer. And trust me, you don't want to mess around with that.

By regularly auditing your health, you can identify areas that need improvement and take steps towards achieving optimal health and wellbeing.

The reality is, change is hard.

Most people would rather remain the same; however, in order to grow and achieve the things you want, change is necessary.

Now some folks will read this list of health audits and feel overwhelmed. And I get it.

Start with a routine physical, every year, on or about your birthday.

When it comes to upgrading your habits, I've seen too many 40-plus men and women try to change everything at once, which can lead to failure and frustration. 

The best approach is to pick one thing that has to change and do that first. 

Don't boil the ocean; instead, boil one pot at a time.

Build momentum and gain some confidence before moving onto the next thing.

The most powerful and lasting way to make a positive change is to do one small thing at a time.

Could you use some help identifying what that one thing is for you?

If yes, I can help. Share your number-one goal with me here.

You probably already know that, for most men and women over the age of 40, having an accountability coach is going to get you better results than going about things on your own.

Imagine having an experienced coach (not your spouse) to manage your nutrition, plan your workouts, help you manage stress.

Think of how this accountability coach, like Coach Sharon Arangio, would help you shortcut success versus the traditional trial-and-error approach that leaves you feeling overwhelmed.

I polled my clients and here are the top 10 reasons why they choose our fitness-and-nutrition coaching program (either online or in-person) over a regular gym membership.

These may not all apply to you, but this should at least help you make an informed decision, especially if you've been struggling to lose weight and keep it off.

1. Personalized attention

Accountability coaching offers more individualized attention from certified coaches, ensuring a tailored workout experience that meets your unique needs and goals.

2. Customized workout programs

Accountability coaching programs design personalized training plans for you, taking into account your fitness level, goals, preferences, and potential limitations.

This is less common in big box gyms, like Apocalyptic Fitness.

3. Smaller, intimate environment

Accountability coaching programs have fewer clients and smaller spaces, making for a more intimate and comfortable workout environment without the hustle and bustle of larger gyms.

4. Less intimidating atmosphere

Big box gyms can be overwhelming, particularly for beginners or those with low confidence.

Personal training studios provide a supportive, encouraging, and non-intimidating atmosphere, which can foster better long-term results.

5. Focused on your progress

Personal training programs prioritize your progress, and coaches often have regular accountability check-ins to discuss and monitor your development.

This close relationship helps you stay accountable and disciplined to achieve your goals.

6. Expert guidance

Our coaches have higher qualifications and more specialized experience, providing you with expert guidance and advice on workouts, nutrition, and injury prevention.

7. Private and semi-private sessions

Personal training studios offer one-on-one sessions and semi-private "team training" with small groups.

This ensures that you receive personalized attention and that workouts are effective and enjoyable.

8. Greater appointment flexibility

Online fitness-and-nutrition coaching has more flexibility in scheduling appointments, as coaches work around your schedule rather than sticking to a strict timetable of classes.

9. Better hygiene and cleanliness

With fewer clients and a more controlled environment, in-person fitness-and-nutrition coaching is cleaner and better maintained than big box gyms.

This can reduce the risk of infections or illnesses.

10. Specialized equipment and facilities

Personal training studios invest in specialized equipment and facilities that cater to your specific needs and goals.

These may not be available at larger gyms, where equipment choices tend to be more generic.

Whether you're a beginner or a fitness enthusiast, our fitness-and-nutrition coaching program is designed to meet your specific needs and help you achieve your goals.

You'll have access to support and guidance every step of the way, ensuring that you stay motivated and on track.

So why wait?

Join the team and let's go to work.

To your success,

Coach Joe
