Accountability, an important part of your exercise habit

You are currently viewing Accountability, an important part of your exercise habit


Accountability the 1 thing you must include when you have decided to “get fit”. Ask yourself these questions

  • What do you plan to do differently this time to ensure that you reach your fitness goals?
  • Are you disappointed at your previous results, yet still hopeful this time will be different?
  • How can I do better than my last attempt at getting fit?
  • How can I actually achieve my goals?

In the past, the reality of carrying out your “plan” to “get fit” may have alluded you. You started to see that you were spinning your wheels. You have just been going around in circles, trying the same things again.

There is a pattern here, right?


The lack of accountability is likely to be the main reason. Of course, there might be other reasons. But accountability is likely to be the biggest contributor. Here are some important points.

  • Studies show a person who achieves weight loss and a healthier lifestyle has connected to an accountability program.
  • Hiring a trainer, joining a health club, hiring a nutritionist are examples.
  • Answering to another person for your actions motivates you to stay on track with your goals.
  • Accountability is what separates all super successful people and leaders from the mediocre. Even the most successful people have coaches.

Just as we need accountability to reach our finance and wealth goals (ever engaged a financial planner?). We need accountability to hit our health and wellness goals.

Now is the time you can live your “wellness” dreams and become the new Happier, Healthier, Stronger YOU.


Your ultimate success depends on the accountability system that you have in place. somebody

You need someone to help you take a dream, develop it into goals, work out a strategy and execute a plan. 

Someone in your circle of influence you can confide in about your goals and enlist help from. Someone who has already helped others achieved what you are aiming to do.

Successful coaches often enlist a coach or take part in group coaching programs for their own accountability and goals.


  1. Accountability accelerates your performance. Working with a wellness / fitness coach means you can work the kinks out of your plan. Develop a sure-fire winning strategy and execute with confidence. Knowing you are being guided by the best to achieve your goals.

  2. Accountability helps you measure your success and progress. A good coach will help you define what success looks like.

    You can set milestones to measure your progress along the way. Easily track how close you are to reaching your goals.

  3. Accountability keeps you engaged.

    There are things that will come up that will distract you from your goals and take you off course. Knowing that your coach is there to track your progress will keep you going to the finish line.

  4. Accountability will keep you responsible. Work with someone who pushes you to make changes. Who holds you accountable for your actions each week. This results in you finally realizing your responsible for how much progress you make every day. Take a good look at yourself, end the excuses and start making deliberate actions that bring about your intended success

  5. Accountability will confirm your thoughts and ideas. You can silence your inner critic and bounce your ideas off someone else. They can help you make sound decisions and give you constructive advice.


Creating and establishing accountability doesn’t have to be a long drawn out process.

Here are three simple steps to becoming accountable for your health and wellness.

  1. Find a purpose partner to keep you accountable.  Tell your purpose partner what you intend to do so you can be accountable. Allow them to ask about your progress and be careful to give straight forward answers—with no excuses.

  2. Become personally accountable for your success.  Personal responsibility will shift your perspective and empower you to eradicate the excuses that may be holding you up.

  3. Get a mentor or a coach. With a mentor or coach, you will speed up your success, break through limitations and achieve much more than you ever can on your own.
