When you think of fitness places, do you think of treadmills, weights, and resistance machines? Does going to the gym feel like more of a chore than a fun activity? With the right mindset and realistic goals in mind, exercising can be the highlight of your day!
Alter Your Mindset
Making fitness a part of your weekly routine can be a challenge in and of itself. If you’ve managed to make it a habit, you’ve already set yourself up on a path to success. However, you might not always view it as an enjoyable activity. Fitness places can sometimes be viewed as work instead of fun. While the old adage “No pain, no gain” is true, you’ll be left feeling accomplished after a good sweat, so try to view exercising as an opportunity to improve your overall well-being.
If you just can’t seem to find fitness fun no matter how hard you try, then perhaps it’s time to try a different form of exercise. Group classes, cardio, weightlifting, or even recreational sports such as tennis are always at your disposal at Elite Sports Clubs. The more enjoyment you find, the more energy you will have, and the better results you’ll see in the long run.
Create Fitness Goals
New Year’s Day shouldn’t be the only time of the year you evaluate your fitness goals. When you take into account the WHY of coming to the club, you’ll find a greater sense of motivation and purpose. What you do in here improves daily life outside of the club. So here are some common examples of goals to work towards:
- Weight Loss
- Muscle Gain
- Better Mobility and/or Flexibility
- Better Balance
- Recover from Injury
- Improve Endurance
While these are broad, you should specify them into measurable goals with timelines. That way, you can hold yourself accountable. If necessary, talk to a personal trainer. They will help design a roadmap for success.
An example might be, improve endurance in order to successfully complete a half-marathon in October. You know how long you have until your run, so you’ll be able to incrementally build up your endurance.
Your goals should also be attainable, not that you get discouraged. Remember, the point is to have FUN in order to achieve the best results possible. Just think of fitness places as adult playgrounds!
