Consistency is key!

With the end of the year approaching, you may start to feel busy and distracted. Perhaps you are busy Christmas shopping, or you want to save some money for Christmas and cut down on your fitness budget. Maybe you are considering dropping your fitness journey from your priority list and want to start doing things you enjoy instead. The weather is also weighing us down and becoming heavy as it gets dark and cold outside. Your mind may try to trick you by telling you the comfort of your home is more enjoyable than the hardship you face at the studio when working out. We get it, you don’t want to go to the gym before or after work, you are tired, you would rather rest after your long day because you feel low on energy. But remember, you set some goals for a reason and going to the gym is only getting you closer to these goals!

The most important aspect of working out is consistency. You need to workout on a regular basis to see the results you want and eventually maintain these results as well! It is a long and hard process, and you cannot let the way you feel on an everyday basis influence your gym attendance. Stick to the long-term plan, especially when it gets hard! That is also when it is the most rewarding and you will thank yourself later. 

Also, remember that the little things matter, especially when training. These training hours add up and it is nearly impossible to combine two sessions in one, even if you try really hard! It may be difficult to stay motivated at times but don’t forget why you started this fitness journey. The best thing you can do for yourself is to show up every session! Indeed, the hardest step is to get to the studio, but once you have left the coziness of your own space and you have arrived at the studio, your trainer will take care of the rest! You don’t even have to think about it, just go through the session and you will feel much better than when you came in!

As hard as you may try to stay motivated, there will be days that you will not feel like working out but push through anyways. If you feel really tired or mentally exhausted, tell your trainer about it; they can always adapt the session for you and make it a bit easier on a draining day. The goal is for you to feel good afterward, whether you had a high intensity session or a more mobility type session. We will help you go through whatever you need on that day, and you will be glad you showed up!
