Set a Goal and Take it Seriously: Interview with Lauren Jacobsen

In order to make a real with your body or your life you  first have to set a goal. The next step it to actually take your goal seriously. You’ve only got yourself to be accountable to and you’ve got to come up with your own reasons to take action.

Once you’ve got these two items in place you can achieve more than you ever thought possible.

Lauren's competition condition is extreme.

Going through the process of changing your body will also change your mind. You’ll learn about yourself, your limits, your strengths, your weaknesses, and how strong you really can be.

In a sense, taking your body to the next level will show you that you can also take your life to the next level…but you’ll never know what you’re capable of until you try.

In todays podcast I interview Lauren Jacobsen. She is a top amateur figure competitor and she shares her insights into the world of figure competitions and what it’s like to transform both her body and her mind.

We talk about her on and off season dieting and contest training and how her approach has changed over the years. Lauren explains that her overall capacity to handle more work and a diet that keeps her lean year round has changed from being a temporary “contest prep diet” into a lifestyle. If you stick to it long enough it eventually becomes a part of who you are.

Lauren definitely works hard and gets into world class shape, but you’ll find that she’s still grounded in who she is and knows that you’ve got to have your own reasons for getting in shape.

It doesn’t matter if you’re competing for your pro card, getting ready for a wedding/special occasion, or just trying to get

into your best shape over the next 2-3 months. The rules of the game are the same. Set a goal, take it seriously, surround yourself with people who will support you and there’s no telling how far you can get.

It’s the challenge that forces you to grow and learn.
