Everyone knows working out is a good thing. It’s common sense. Yet the majority of people don’t work out.
Why is that?
Well, the word “workout” contains the word “work” in it and if you don’t like to work hard, you may not enjoy working out. Being uncomfortable while working out is part of the process. You may never enjoy the workouts themselves, but you will enjoy the fruit of your labor if you stick with it.
When you focus on the process and continually make it to the gym, eventually the discomfort and all the things you didn’t like before, now become not so much of an issue as you see progress. Your focus changes.
Here’s what you need to do to make that happen:
- Focus on your GOALS.
2. Use your COACH.
FOCUS ON YOUR GOALS
Would it be fun to spend all your money on electronics and clothes and other cool stuff? Yes! But you don’t because you have other goals, like paying your rent or mortgage, taking a vacation, saving for retirement, and so on. You’re motivated, so you stay on track.
Fitness is just like that. If you have goals, you’ll be motivated to work toward them. But here’s the problem: When people don’t see tangible progress, they typically get frustrated and quit.
Financial goals are easy to track because you can watch the numbers. Easy, right? For most people, fitness goals are way harder to track. But we can help. We’ll help you identify your short- and long-term goals, determine how to measure them, and track progress. And we’ll celebrate all the small wins along the way to the big one!
That brings us to the second element of motivation:
USE YOUR COACH
You’ve got the goals for sure. But you might not have the plan. Want to lose 20 lb.? We can tell you how. Want improve your endurance? We have a program. Want to get stronger? That’s in our wheelhouse, too.
There’s nothing more frustrating than spinning your wheels. But if you see a clear path to your goals and get to celebrate milestones along the way, you’ll be very motivated. A coach is the person who will draw the map from your current state to your goals and set up wins along the way. He or she will be the first to pick you up when motivation is down. And your coach will also be the one who celebrates every single win with you.
If we told you to go suffer through a workout right now, you might curl your nose at the thought. But if we told you that you’d be led through the perfect workout for your goals by an inspiring professional who will make you smile, you’d probably feel much more inclined to tie up those runners!
Bonus: We offer the chance to work one on one with a personal coach or in a group setting. Some people love the devoted attention of a personal coach, but other people get fired up by the energy of a supportive group. The choice is up to you!
