“Fitness is not about being better than anyone else. It’s about being better than YOU used to be. “-Unknown
Working hard on something you don’t care about is the fastest way to add unnecessary stress to your life. This is why it’s so important to find the passion in your fitness routine. When you’re passionate about the thing you are pouring your energy into, it becomes a JOY to do.
The first, and most obvious, step to finding your fitness passion is to choose something you like. If you’re forcing yourself to go to the gym or run, and you don’t enjoy it, then don’t do it! There are endless ways to move your body, so find something that’s fun for you. You should look forward to your workout!
Olympian and Hobbyist level athletes alike will tell you their workout time is sacred. It’s the highlight of their day, and so important that it’s never missed nor moved. The secret behind developing this unshakable passion for fitness is choosing something you love. When you love what you’re doing, the resources will flow to you with ease to make it happen. You’ll find the time to work out, the money for your memberships and dedication to show-up.
We’ve all heard the expression – how you do one thing is how you do everything – and this is so true when it comes to fueling your fitness passion. If you’re giving it your all at the studio, and then eating junk food at home, this makes it harder to stay in the zone. To fuel your passion and make sure you never miss a workout again, focus on making good choices outside the studio. Taking care of yourself by eating clean, staying hydrated, getting enough sleep and managing your stress will make it easier to get yourself to the studio. By adopting a holistic approach to your health and wellness, you will find yourself more energetic and excited to work out every class.
Celebrate your wins and move on quickly when you fail. Keeping your fitness for LIFE means never stopping. When something unexpected comes up and you miss a workout, accept that life happens and just carry on and keep on going. Get creative with finding time to exercise and move throughout your week. It takes guts and hard work to push yourself to be better than average, but the power and explosive energy is SO worth it.
