In today's health and fitness world of online groupon deals, smartphone apps, trendy fitness products, and danger and adventure filled marathons and run-walks, there's so much to choose from to get in shape and stay active. That's a great thing. However, it might be a time to step back and determine ultimately what your ideal fitness and wellness environment should be to keep you motivated long-term and reaching your goals and staying fit for life.

I'd suggest understanding the 4 basic core behavior styles we are all comprised of by using the DISC method, which is one of the many tools used to measure a person’s unique style. Determine which style represents you the most (some people have a couple that they are most prominent in, but today we'll just focus on the strongest), and then match that to your ideal environments.

The DISC core styles are:
D” stands for “Dominance”. It’s how a person responds to problems and challenges. This is a person who is assertive and direct, competitive, likes results, and getting to the point quick. Is this you?
I” stands for “Influence”. It’s how a person influences others to their point of view. This is a person who is friendly, outgoing, people oriented, excited and talkative. Is this you?
S” stands for “Steadiness”. It’s how a person handles a steady pace. This is a person who is easy going, steady, reserved, non emotional, and loyal. Is this you?
C” stands for “Compliance”. It’s how a person responds to procedures and rules set by others. This is a person who is very precise, fact oriented, analytical, and a perfectionist. Is this you?
Still not exactly sure yet what style you are? .

First, choose whether you are an “EXTROVERT” or “INTROVERT”. This will separate the “D” & “I” styles from the “S” and “C” styles in that order.
If you are more of an “EXTROVERT”, next decide if you are “MORE COMPETITIVE and DIRECTING”, or “MORE TALKATIVE and INTERACTIVE”. This will let you know if you are a “D” or an “I” in that order.
If you are more of an “INTROVERT", next decide if you are “MORE ACCEPTING and DOING”, or “MORE ASSESSING and THINKING”. This will let you know if you are an “S” or “C” in that order.

Here's some basic NUTRITION, FITNESS, and LIFESTYLE trends for each style:
“D”- You are very competitive and must place yourself in a fitness environment that allows for competition to stay motivated. You have a tendency to skip breakfast, eat quick meals on the go, and eat fatty dinners. Be aware of this and make adjustments in your nutrition and diet by setting goals and tracking your food intake. When you are stressed you might get constricted arteries and clench your teeth. For recovery, do a lot of deep breathing exercises and quiet your mind. For relaxing do moderate physical activity.

“I”-You are a very sociable person and always optimistic and friendly and should place yourself in a group environment that allows for you to stay motivated. You have a tendency to overeat in social occasions out with friends and at events and functions. Be aware of this and make adjustments in your nutrition and diet during those times. When stressed, you might get heart palpitations. For recovery, do some mindfulness meditation. For relaxing, chat with a friend.

“S”-You are a non emotional, conforming team player who doesn't like change and should place yourself in a repetitive and slow changing type environment to stay motivated. You can be a very emotional eater. Be aware of this and make adjustments in your nutrition and diet by understanding what triggers your emotional eating. When stressed you might get stomach issues. For recovery, do some mindfulness meditation. Relax by reading and taking a long bath.

“C”-You are precise, detail oriented, skeptical and fearful and need to place yourself in an environment that allows for a detailed plan of action with follow-up. You have a tendency to measure out your food portions Be aware of this and make adjustments in your nutrition and diet by loosening up with your portions every now and then when eating. When stressed you might get headaches and constricted arteries. For recovery, do a lot of deep breathing exercises and chanting. Relax by having good quality alone time.

The Lifestyle Insights system also helps to determine where a person's stressors are coming from, their eating and sleeping habits, how they use their energy system and recover, and much more.
