As a fitness coach, I understand that working out is tough. Not just with regard to sore muscles.
For some of us it just feels natural. It's easy to do and follow through on, and we enjoy it every time. Yet there's those of us that feel out of place. Our mind and body don't want to cooperate. Life gets in the way by interrupting us, and every session is a struggle.
Why is it so easy for some people? Do you ever ask yourself this? If so, I’d like to share something I learned as a personal trainer to make working out more doable.
First, you have to add it to your schedule and give your workout priority status. If it's not important it is easy to ignore. I do this by blocking it out on my calendar. And don't allow anything—especially work to interfere with my workouts.
Second, a preplanned workout routine removes the unknown from your workouts.
@@This makes it so that all you have to do is follow directions—its like baking a cake but a lot better for you.@@
Take the mystery out of your workouts and they’ll be easier to commit to and get done rather than stress about. Yes, a lot of people stress about their workouts and I don't want that to be you.
Third, a workout partner—one with a commitment to a workout schedule and routine. This makes it so that you have a support group, motivator, and conspirator. Not sure where you can find one of those—I'd recommend a friend that wants to help you to be your best self. With or without the friend— I'd recommend the Method 19 app because it has a defined schedule. Expert created routines. Support from a fitness expert that is always just a tweet or email away.
