When we think about our health, we are great in coming up with short term goals, but we struggle with realizing our health and fitness should be considered as long term goals. We often forget that it is a journey and process that is constantly changing and forming us forever.
You may ask, how do I become more successful? By making a commitment to make it part of your daily routine. In order for you to be successful, you have to make going to the gym a consistent part of your life and not just when you are motivated or inspired. You need to set a day and time on your calendar. When you know what days you will be training, there is no guesswork to what time or day you will be at the gym. In most cases, we have to mark the time on our schedules so we have the time for it. Of course, there will be times you cannot get there, but do not allow these to deter you from your process and goals.
Give yourself permission to start off slow. You must have a plan or program to follow that will give you the foundation of strength, which we are capable of doing here at Carolina CrossFit. Be prepared to start where you are in your fitness level and watch yourself change as you challenge yourself. You will eventually add more weight, go faster, and get better with technique through quality coaching.
The next thing we will encourage you to do is keep a record or begin tracking your progress. We have a solution for you that stores this information, or you can keep your own training log. You will want to use your information from previous items to build on, to see how you've come and where you're going.
Come join us at Carolina CrossFit where we can help you achieve your fitness goals, provide a support system through our coaches and community, and we will celebrate you metamorphosing yourself into a healthier and stronger you!
