I was messaging a new client this morning as she was planning her training schedule for the months ahead.

That’s the easy part, right? Put the workouts into your calendar.

The more challenging part, of course, is doing the workouts.

And so, I asked what she needs to put in place to increase the likelihood of doing those scheduled workouts.

She’d been thinking about the same thing. Her answer was to reduce the friction by setting up her permanent workout space.

Since she doesn’t have to set up the training space each time, there’s one less excuse not to do the workout.

What do you need to put in place to get your workouts in this week? 

Get the clothes ready? Pour the sand off your shoes? Pull the kettlebells from the closet? Lock the kids in the basement with a bag of marshmallows and an iPad?

Do it tonight.
