How Do You Define Fitness?

How Do You Define Fitness-

All of us should have a definition of what we want out of our training plan, eating habits and the lifestyle that we’ve chosen. Your definition of fitness shouldn’t be influenced by what Marcus down the road holds important but what matters the most to you. Having the definition will do wonders for you goal setting and improve your odds of reaching those goals.

How To Re-Focus on What’s Vital in Your Training

It’s easy to get overwhelmed when stepping your foot in a gym: rows of machines to choose from, there’s kettlebells, barbells, dumbbells, bands, benches, suspension trainers, balls, walls, chin up bars and the mysterious “thing” that looks like a medieval torture device, once reserved for the witches. Quite frankly, the list reads like the inventory of your local hardware store. 

You yearn clarity because it shaves time off your training while improving your results, so you can spend time on other, perhaps more pressing tasks. Such as finding your favorite left sock that’s been missing since Saturday.

How to Create Process Goals

A lot of us think we need to know all the answers before starting. Or that the goal we choose now is going to last for an eternity, as if our interest are the same now and in 5 years time. So we paint these grand, and sometimes scary goals that requires enormous amounts of work. Focusing on process goals is a great way to achieve larger goals that might seem too intimidating at first.

What Are You Prepared to Give Up-

I know you love goal setting; everyone does. You’ve got grand goals you want to reach, peaks to climb, distances to run, weights to lift, money to make and names to take. Everyone loves the thought of reaching goals, and you are no different. But how much thought have you put into how hard you will have to work for this goal? What things will you have to give up in order to reach it? How much hardship will you have to go through?

Keep Your Focus On The Goal

Keep Your Focus on The Goal

The sheer volume of information available about training is overwhelming. You can read every post on your favourite blogs. You can read dozens of books on the topic. You can hire the best coaches in the world. But all that is useless unless you take action. There’s a point at which the flood of information becomes paralysing. You are being pulled in ten different directions at once. You know what I mean here: “I want to run a marathon”, “lose fat”, “get stronger”, “do gymnastics”, “master the kettlebells”, “own the Olympic lifts”, “get a tan and flex my biceps on stage”… And I am only scratching the surface here. You simply have too many things to choose from.

Align Your Goals with Your Values

Align Your Goals with Your Values

It’s crucial to base your fitness goals in the values that mean something to you. Finding your “why” is important when setting up goals but it is as important (if not more importarter – I can say that, it’s my blog) to discover or revisit your values before just putting empty words on a piece of paper.

When you base your goals on what the society, your family, your friends, co-workers or SpongeBob (imagine walking around wearing square pants because he said so) considers to be right  but ignore what you really believe in, you will end up pushing water uphill. You will feel like you are failing at everything because you are trying to get somewhere where you really don’t want to get to.
