Learn the 4 Key Strategies to Train Your Brain for Getting Stronger and Leaner

We live in an age where almost everyone has access to more health and fitness information than ever before, yet almost half of the population of North America is obese. Did you ever wonder why this is? Information is important, but there is something far more essential that needs to be addressed: your Mindset.

I’m here to tell you that before you’ll see any lasting transformation in your body, there has to be a transformation of your mindset and your habits.

If all it took was “How-To’s” we’d all be fit, rich and happy.

mental-pic1Unfortunately most people focus almost all of their attention and energy on the technical information and physical aspect of getting in shape, while neglecting their mental conditioning.

Everything in your outer world is directly affected by what you are thinking and feeling in your inner world. This is also a core principle of the popular Law of Attraction and has very practical applications in Performance Psychology and even Quantum Physics. In fact, every personal development program I know of emphasizes the power of your thoughts.

The good news is that your conscious mind is the only thing in the universe that you can have complete control over. Ultimately, only you can decide what you think about most of the time. Fortunately, by taking complete control of your conscious thoughts, you can also control the direction of your life and determine your own future.

You become what you think about most of the time.

Controlling your thoughts and emotions may seem like a daunting task at first, but like learning any new skill all it takes is practice. I am about to introduce you to what I consider to be the four key strategies of mental conditioning. These are the same four principles that I describe in detail in my book, Get Mental: The Psychology of Strength, where you will also learn several practical techniques for implementing these strategies.

Who am I and Why Should you Listen to Me?

josh-193x300Before I reveal what I believe are the 4 key strategies to train your brain for getting stronger and leaner, let me tell you a little bit about myself.

My name is Josh Hewett, and I’m a certified personal trainer, public speaker, the owner of Top Form Fitness, and the author of Get Mental: The Psychology of Strength, and Get Lean: Permanent Physique Transformation, as well as several other fitness and performance training resources.

Even as a personal trainer, I used to struggle with getting consistent results in the gym. I knew something was missing from my strength and conditioning program and I soon realized what it was: the mental aspect.

After taking some psychology courses at university I began to understand the significance of mental conditioning as it related to human performance. The effectiveness of sport psychology and mental training became very obvious to me once I got involved in powerlifting and strength athletics in my thirties.

Since I then I have attended several seminars, taken courses, listened to audio training, read several books, researched university studies, and watched documentaries on the subject of psychology and mind power. I also have an Exercise and Sport Psychology certification. But more importantly I have successfully implemented many of these strategies with both myself and my clients.

I describe these mental strategies in detail in Get Mental: The Psychology of Strength.


The 4 Key Strategies
for Getting Stronger and Leaner

mentalThe brain is like a powerful super-computer; it has an amazing ability to find solutions to challenges and discover ways to reach your goals. However, your brain makes a much better servant than master; if left unguided its primary focus will be to keep you safe, avoid risk, and basically resist “progress” by keeping you in your comfort zone.

Therefore you need to give your mind clear and focused direction regarding what you want to achieve and your brain will almost miraculously find a way to accomplish your goals.

Based on everything I’ve studied, learned and experienced, there are FOUR primary factors to consider related to programming your mind for success; these include:

  1. You need to stop focusing on what you DON’T want.
  2. You must focus on what you DO want.
  3. Develop a strong sense of BELIEF that you will achieve it.
  4. Feel GOOD about it. 

1. Stop focusing on what you DON’T want


One of the biggest challenges I find with many of my clients is a lack of focus.  Many people don’t really know what they want.  They may have a clear idea of what they don’t want.  But focusing on what you don’t like about yourself won’t get you results; it will just get you frustrated.

Before you can clearly focus on what you want, it is important to first train yourself to remove distracting negative thought patterns.  In Get Mental: The Psychology of Strength, I will explain the key to eliminating these self-sabotaging thoughts and you will learn a simple yet effective technique for stopping them as soon as they appear.

What you focus on expands.

2. Start focusing on what you DO want


It requires a clear and conscious effort to redirect your attention to your objective. You need to be very clear about what you really want.  Once you have this clarity you need to set up some solid goals to get what it is you want, and develop a deep commitment to achieve those goals!

In Chapter Two of my book you will learn the secret to setting effective goals and you will discover how elite athletes have used specific goals to achieve incredible results.  I will also describe in detail 3 methods of programming your goals into your subconscious mind and rewiring your brain to become “laser-focused” on achieving your objectives!

These techniques require a minimal time investment, yet the results you will manifest will be nothing short of amazing. I will show you step by step how to use these powerful methods for transforming your mind and body.

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

3. Believe and you will achieve.

brick-wallBelief is a powerful thing.  Your beliefs shape your perception of reality and strongly influence your actions.  When you believe in something you begin to attract people and situations, and notice opportunities that will support your belief.

By creating a strong sense of belief that you will achieve your goal, you significantly increase the likelihood of being successful.  You can set effective goals and develop a strong positive focus using mental conditioning techniques, but if deep inside you just don’t believe those goals are possible you are basically setting yourself up for failure.

In Get Mental: The Psychology of Strength, you will learn how to “choose” beliefs that support your success, and how to strengthen these beliefs until they become convictions!

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” –Napoleon Hill

smiley-face4. Feel Good NOW!

Your primary goal should always be to feel good NOW. Not “after you get what you want.” Always try to feel as good as you can right now, in the moment, regardless of your current circumstances. This is referring to feeling good emotionally, not just physically.

Feeling stressed out or unhappy will hold you back from reaching your objective. Feeling happiness or joy will start to attract more positive results into your life. I consider this to be the most important principle. I mean, isn’t the ultimate purpose behind all of your goals and dreams to become happy anyway?

My Get Mental ebook will show you several methods for taking control of your emotions and dramatically improving your mood in almost any situation.

One of the best ways to start feeling good now, is to develop an attitude of gratitude

The truth is that your inner world essentially creates your outer world.  Trying to get different physical results without first changing your mindset is like trying to grow apples on an orange tree… a fruitless endeavor! You need to change your roots (your mental conditioning) in order to grow new fruits (your results)!

Most of us tend to put all of our focus on the fruits (the physical results). But it’s what’s under the ground that creates what’s above the ground. It’s the invisible that creates the visible.
