As I’m sitting at my desk going over all my clients accounts in my online training I’m realizing one difference between those who are successful with keeping a routine and those who are struggling with regular exercise.
For me, exercise every week is pretty much the same, I know when and where and what my workout will be. It’s always the same for me and I have a back up if my kids have a game or something interrupts my schedule. If someone were to ask me when I’m working out this week, I can give you the times and days for the entire week.
So the mistake I am seeing with establishing a fitness routine is that most are just holding on to them and hoping they find a free 30-60 minutes in their schedule to squeeze one in. Before they know it, it is Saturday and they only were able to get one workout in. In order to be successful or see any physical changes, you must establish a routine of at least 4 days of exercise per week. That means scheduling them like we do work, school classes, or meeting with your accountant to get your taxes done.
So don’t go into your fitness routine with a blind eye, schedule those workouts, check them off as you go, and finally see those results you have been looking for!
