Never miss a Monday

Finding that groove when it comes to working out is often the hardest thing to do. There are ups and downs that come with starting a new routine- even more so if it has been awhile since you’ve exercised.

The truth is the most fit people in the world struggle with the same issues. Personally, with all the weddings, work, travel and long weekends this summer it has been a mental battle for me with regards to my health and fitness. Here are some simple tips I use to keep myself on track.

Never miss a Monday: Making sure you get a great training session in on Monday will set the tone for the rest of the week. Seriously, never miss a Monday.

Find a partner: Social support is the best way to make sure you stick to your game plan. Surround yourself with people that support your goals. Having someone to train with will greatly impact your success. They can motivate you on days when you don’t feel like training and even add a bit of friendly competition.

Join a team: Working out is only one aspect to a healthy lifestyle. Join a pick-up sports league; there are tons of options out there, look around your local community for various sports teams or athletic groups. Figure out whatever it is you like doing and get out and meet some like-minded people that enjoy playing sports. You’ll make some new friends in the process and have fun all the while improving your health. If you can’t join an organized league or group, start something with a group of your friends such as pick-up basketball, soccer, running, biking, or surfing groups. You can do anything, just get up and do it.

Don’t waste your time: One of your key partners in the gym should be your watch. Have a good timer on your wristwatch so you can keep your rest periods to the prescribed time limit.

Keep moving: If you get to the gym and it’s crowded and someone’s performing the exact exercise that you need, ask to work in with them or pick another exercise that targets the same muscles. Just stay positive and keep moving.

Forget to plan and plan to fail: You need a master plan like the one outlined in the 3BG System in order to be successful in your body/life transformation. Write down your goals, how you plan on achieving them and your progress along the way. Seeing all the work you have done written on paper will help keep you motivated.

Nobody’s perfect: Things are bound to come up in your lives that will prevent you from sticking to the exact plan. If you hit a bump in the road, such as missing a Monday, that’s life and it happens. Just acknowledge that you’ve fallen off track and get back at it. You’re going to mess up and we want you to know that it’s ok. Fitness and healthy living are for life.

By implementing these helpful strategies into your routine, you’ll be able to pull through when life gets hectic and your feeling overwhelmed.

If you are committed to regaining your health and getting in the best shape ever than know that there will be some struggles along the way. Nothing worthwhile is ever achieved without a little adversity. It is those things in life that we have to work for that afford us the greatest rewards.

Starting a new workout program for the first time in years (or ever) isn’t the easiest thing to do but if you are committed, you stay at it and use some of the tips you’ve just read about- the pay off will be huge.

Yours in health,

Sean
