You’re crazy!

As I sit and design these 5am workouts starting on May 22nd thoughts are running through my head about everyone that has heard about our new program.  Some are super excited and others look at me and say “you are crazy to wake up that early!”

Let’s get real, those of us with kids and job responsibilities know what happens after work.  Nothing is consistent.  Sometimes you have practices to bring the kids too and sometimes you have a networking event.  Other times you have company that is visiting who requires your attention.  When you think of these things, a 5 am workout is the only thing that wouldn’t get interrupted by all of these things.  If you don’t have time, make it!  Create an uninterrupted hour in your day to complete your workout.  If exercising after work has worked for you and been consistent there is no need to change your routine, but if you are one of those who struggles with consistency the early morning time may be the only option for you.  We all need to exercise, we know it is god for us.  Does it take discipline?  Of course, but it can be done and you may find that it is something you should have tried a long time ago.

When I worked at large gyms in the past, there would be so many people waiting at the door before we opened.  Now that I have kids and more responsibilities, I realize why.  If you struggle with a consistent schedule, take a look at your priorities and see where you can fit this important puzzle piece in.

Happy Monday!

Repetition

As I sit here and try to think about my blog for the day a question pops in my head.  “What does it take to get real results?” If I were to sum up success I would only use two words ACTION and REPETITION.  Motivation is the initial start to action.  Some of us get stuck with the running engine but do not actually put the car in drive and go.  Think of your goals as a destination you are heading to.  Initially you are excited to get there, but you know it’s a long drive.  You aren’t going to arrive with excitement only.  You have to actually put your car in motion and drive one mile at a time until you arrive.  Some will just start their cars, some will put it in drive and go halfway and quit, and those who end up successful are those that drive the entire route (you may get stuck in traffic, end up with a flat tire, or run out of gas).  Whatever happens, the successful person keeps fixing whatever goes wrong along the way and keeps going.

So whatever goals you have, know that there will be challenges and roadblocks but whatever happens just readjust and keep driving!  Don’t do something a few times and get frustrated.  Stop quitting and restarting over and over again (this take so much more effort!).  Stay consistent and know it’s about repetition.  Do it until you stop thinking about it.  Your destination is worth the effort, otherwise you would never had desired it in the first place.

Happy Monday!
