Opting to fully commit to improving your fitness and well-being can be a empowering journey. The initial exercise sessions are driven by a sense of enthusiasm from making positive adjustments to your lifestyle. Nonetheless, how do we uphold a consistent training routine several weeks after daily responsibilities take over? It’s common to start a new year’s resolution, only to find that work becomes hectic and the excitement of working out starts to wane. Ron Everline, also known as “Boss,” an esteemed personal instructor and mentor to elite figures in Hollywood, comprehends that maintaining regular training is one of the most challenging aspects of our fitness voyage. Yet, he is convinced that with the correct mental approach, we can remain on the right track.
Thankfully, The Boss, who also serves as the chief fitness and business ambassador at Cellucor, is able to impart his philosophies with Muscle & Fitness.
Ron Everline did not become a fitness professional without encountering his own share of accomplishments and setbacks. Although he was unable to achieve his initial aspiration of being selected for the NFL, he reignited his passion for training after establishing his first gym in Atlanta. Today, his “Just-Train” brand is acknowledged as a leading force in aiding people in making positive physical and mental transformations, and currently, the Boss has establishments in Cleveland and Los Angeles, both receiving commendable feedback.
He also mentors a wide array of celebrities such as Kevin Hart, Ne-Yo, and Diddy. Having weathered the low points in his life to achieve long-term success, Everline is able to motivate individuals from various backgrounds when it comes to sustaining consistency while striving towards their objectives.
What Does Consistency Mean For Ron Everline?
For individuals who follow fitness writers, personal trainers, or online influencers, the term “consistency” is likely a familiar one. It’s frequently used when discussing “overcoming goals,” but what does consistency truly entail? And more importantly, how can you practically attain it? “I think it’s an action item,” explains The Boss. “Being consistent is a thought process in which you set out to accomplish something every day. And the task doesn’t have to be big, just be consistent on your journey. Find the little wins in there versus the quantum leaps, right?”
For Ron Everline, maintaining consistency entails discovering sustainable workouts without aiming to progress too rapidly. He suggests that it involves becoming a dependable person, athlete, or player, as opposed to someone who can only be counted on periodically. The instructor also recommends that staying consistent does not mean being inflexible. If you determine that a particular training style isn’t effective, this realization should prompt you to modify your approach until you eventually find a sustained and regular path.
For clients like Kevin Hart, who is unable to engage in daytime workouts due to lengthy film shoots, Everline has discovered that late-night or early morning sessions are the most feasible times to exercise. Nevertheless, when Hart is not filming projects, he can work out during the daytime. Therefore, maintaining consistency is about being adaptable rather than rigid. Regardless of the circumstances, it’s about finding a method to continue progressing toward your goals while enjoying the process.
“So, consistency, to me, means a little bit of effort every day, Everline says. “But it’s [also about] the consciousness of the mind to say that you’re gonna give that effort every time you step out there.”
Understand the Art of Sacrifice
The Boss is of the belief that making positive mental and physical changes should not necessitate sacrificing your fundamental beliefs and values. Furthermore, he reevaluates the concept of sacrifice. Rather than viewing a healthy diet or abstaining from alcohol as a sacrifice for health and fitness, consider it as not wanting to sacrifice your long-term objectives for a momentary indulgence. It should be your aspirations that you are unwilling to compromise, rather than the distractions. By concentrating on not abandoning your hopes and dreams, it becomes easier to make the right choices.
“What, ultimately, are you trying to get people to see about you, and the things that you are living your life to be?” asks the trainer. “When you’re going out to a party and you are saying, ‘I’m not drinking’ or ‘I’m not doing that,’ and there’s a goal, there’s going to always be something to celebrate. Don’t sacrifice (your goals), right?”
The Boss contends that the only sacrifice you should be making is to relinquish your present self for the individual you can become in the long term.
Admit Your Weaknesses in Order to Become Stronger
Through his collaboration with C4 Energy, “Boss” Everline is passionate about the company’s “Be You But Better” campaign. This campaign is designed to inspire individuals to find the consistency that so often eludes us. The coach emphasizes that the missing link is frequently our unwillingness to acknowledge our shortcomings. He also highlights that many of us shy away from seeking guidance when we need assistance. “Sometimes you suffer, because you didn’t just ask the question,” says Everline. “But there’s things that naturally we don’t know.”
As a professional fitness expert, Boss mentions that he is often pursuing knowledge and seeking advice from those around him. His belief is that what often impedes people’s progress is their pride and fear of appearing ignorant. In order to maintain consistency, we must all realize that knowledge leads to growth. Moreover, in communities with like-minded individuals such as gyms, those around you are more than willing to share their own experiences. While training is a personal journey, you do not have to undertake it alone.
