How To Transform Your Body In 12 Weeks!

How To Transform Your Body In 12 Weeks!

Will you actually stick to your fitness goals this year? Why not make those failed New Year's resolutions a thing of the past? Full guides!

So, did you transform your body in 2008? Or did you swap your bag of motivation for a bag of chips? Don't beat yourself up if you did the latter. It's not time to get mad, its time to get even.

Many of us have the intentions to begin a transformation program, only to let the terror of excuses fill our heads with more convenient answers - the wrong ones. Before you know it, 2009 is here and tapping you on the shoulder asking if you plan on being in the passenger once again, or the driver of your destiny. So, we created the 2009 Bodybuilding.com Transformation Guide for you to answer that question with ease, and with the decisiveness that is fighting for your new health, fitness and appearance goals.

Find Out How She Did It Here!

Our archive contains many different subject areas as well as methods of self-improvement; you are guaranteed to find what you'll need to get yourself the results you are looking for. There is a reason that Bodybuilding.com is the most popular bodybuilding and fitness site in the world!

The keys to bodybuilding and fitness success are:

1. Information:

    You need to know what to eat, what workouts to follow, what supplements to take, and more so you don't waste your time and effort with misinformation. Information can come from experts (doctors, trainers, or pros) or social networks (friends, people that have had success, online community members, or people with your same goal).

2. Motivation:

    You need to be able to get motivated enough to start your program and then stick to it for the rest of your life. Fitness is not a "12 week plan". It is a lifestyle. Motivation is the most important part of any program. It's 90% mental and 10% physical. Your body doesn't decide to get off the couch and do your cardio, your brain does.

3. Supplementation:

    Supplements are an important part simply because they can help you get faster results from your diet and workout program. They are not magic, but they can help you reach your goals quicker, which will help keep you motivated. The right supplements will not only help you gain muscle and lose fat, but they will help you feel better, and stay healthy.
