To make progress, consistency is key. You have to get to work, be it to the gym, on the bike, on the road, on the trail, get doing whatever is your thing.
Good habits, effective routine, small adjustments and personal rituals help to preserve interest. Daily practise over a period gets you the gains. Put some fun and healthy competition into it. Keep moving, keep moving. Lift heavy things, carry, squat, push, pull. Easy?
No, it’s not easy.
What gets you there? Discipline? Motivation? Practice? A certain amount of all three! The definitions are themselves instructive;
Discipline (verb): to train oneself in a controlled and habitual way.
Motivation (noun): the feeling of wanting to do something, especially something that involves hard work and effort
Practice (noun): The actual application or use of an idea, belief or method, as opposed to the theories relating to it.
Do you know where to start? Do you know your strengths, your weaknesses? Do you know how to get better at what you want to do? In many cases we place obstacles in front of ourselves. This is where a good coach can help you assess where you’re at and then focus your attention; to help you do the work.
Your coach can help you keep moving well so you can make those gains you’re looking for in your fitness and health.
