Are you looking to get back into shape but can’t seem to find the motivation?
If you're anything like me, you've probably had a few false starts, a few "I'll start Mondays, a few "After the holidays", and a few different diets under your belt.
It's a pretty common story, you start a new program thinking that this finally the one only to be searching for a new one in a few weeks.
Despite all of the ups and downs you're not going to give up your desire to get in shape and become healthy.
Now is the time for you to get active, eat well and live healthily, and you’ve found the right place to get started.
Perkspiration is here to help you lead a healthier lifestyle. We’ll help you celebrate each small success and not let setbacks stop you.
We incorporate proven motivational strategies in every part of our site so you can reach and exceed all of your health and wellness goals.
Perkspiration lets you take advantage of your "sweat equity" in order to earn great rewards provided by health and fitness professionals to help you along your way.
I just love the fact that you get points for reconnecting with an old friend. I became a member because I wanted motivation to get back into shape but I was so pleasantly surprised at so many of the ways I can earn points for taking care of myself. I get the joy associated with renewing old friendships plus earn awesome rewards.
I'm not going to lie, I love free stuff. I've been adding things to my wishlist on a regular basis. Knowing that I can earn these things through "logging my victories" really motivates me to eat better and exercise more.
I never stick to programs. I don't even want to admit how many I've bought and never finished. Perkspiration has given me the chance to try out several different ones and I finally found one that fits my lifestyle.
Perkspiration was born out of my own experience of finding myself out of shape.
I was working a physically demanding job that kept me fit but that all changed when I transferred to a less active but more stressful job.
I started to gain weight from stress-related eating and a lack of exercise. I didn't really notice it until one day I was passing a mirror. I was surprised to see a fat guy.
I read everything I could get my hands on about health, nutrition, and exercise. I tried a variety of plans but always lacked the motivation to see them through.
As I learned more about human performance, I discovered the simple concept of rewarding the good (positive reinforcement) and forgetting the bad (selective ignoring).
I set up a series of milestones for myself with rewards for reaching them.
The milestones were micro-goals, such as: "Today I'm going to eat vegetables for a snack instead of chips."
My reward was a star on the calendar – yes, even adults need encouragement! If I accomplished 10 micro-goals in one week, I rewarded myself by going to a movie or buying a book.
I noticed that these micro-goals were habit-forming and many of my unhealthy habits were being replaced by healthy ones.
Next thing I realized is the guy in the mirror was not quite so fat.
I used my years of experience in the Canadian Forces and what I had learned on my own personal fitness journey to create Perkspiration – an online exercise, diet and wellness hub.I recruited professionals and companies who believe like I do that rewarding healthy lifestyle choices will lead to many more.
Now instead of providing your own rewards as motivation, they provide their products and services which you can earn through hard work, healthy living, and wellness.
