*This is where I workout everyday. You do not need a fancy gym membership to become fit and healthy.
Embrace The Struggle.
You may be a regular with workouts or a person who has just started to workout. You are both in the same boat. Yet this does not make you different. There is always a struggle going on. Even if you are seasoned veteran with workouts or a newbie. I personally struggle with my workouts everyday. But that is what makes me keep coming back for more.
Look At It As A Challenge.
Every time you are faced with a workout look at it as something you need to overcome. Something that will be a brief part of your day but something that will build the foundation of how your day will be. Every time I am faced with a workout that I feel like I cannot complete I always think about how small this task is compared to my full day. “If I give 120% to this workout for an hour at most I will feel more accomplished throughout my day.” These are the types of thoughts you need to have during your workouts. It is not suppose to be glamorous, and it is not suppose to look good. But it will help you look glamourous and look good in the long run.
Dominate The Challenge.
Every time you look at your workout for the day (whether you made it up or someone made it for you) tell yourself, “I will dominate this workout.” People underestimate the power of self talk. Positive self talk is one of the best ways of being successful especially in workouts. If you get to that point in the workout where you feel like you can’t go anymore tell yourself, “I can I am strong enough!” Another trick I use during hard workouts is using emotions to my advantage. Again, if you find yourself in that horrible part of your workout and feel completely spent, smile. Yes, that is it. Smiling triggers a response that will allow you to keep going. If you think I am joking try it and you will be amazed. So whether you are working out for the 10,000th time or the 1st, go into your workout with a positive attitude and dominate it!
