Exercise Adherence – Find a form of physical activity which you enjoy! Your more likely to stick to it and work harder at it.
Set your goals – You need some form of motivation and purpose behind your hard efforts in the training room and outdoor bootcamps. Remind yourself of your goal every week and that should beat the excuses!
Be Accountable – Tell a friend what you’re doing, explain what you’re going to achieve, take a photo of your physique, keep some old clothes you want to get back into, record how many push ups you can do, complete the cooper run. Just remember, there is more than 100 ways to assess your health and fitness NOT just the weighing scales.
Positive Mindset – Whether you’re getting started on your new program or you’ve been working out for a while. Remind yourself of the benefits exercise has for your mental health not just your physical health. You always feel a sense of achievement and self-satisfaction. Building up your resistance to negative attitudes and being able to surround yourself with positivity will improve your mindset!
Cut the BS! – It’s not what you eat after 7pm that’s hindering your progress. It’s the handful of poor food choices you make everyday before 7pm too! For your physique to change you need to force an adaptation or response from the body by changing the stimulus. You can’t keep doing the same things and expect to see a different result! When you think you’ve worked hard… work harder!
