As somebody who’s interested in helping people re-awaken their natural fitness abilities, I know the value of regular and consistent training.
But I also realize the challenge that some have — perhaps even you. There are often negative thoughts and emotions associated with kick-starting a new fitness regime. It’s tough to form positive health habits that will actually stick.
If that’s you, I’d like you to start thinking about fitness with a different perspective. Watch the short clip below (and please excuse my stuffy nose voice, I was getting over a cold) 🙂
First of all, you have to start with something you actually like. If you don’t like to run, then don’t set a goal of waking up at 6am every morning to do a 5K run. Choose something that’s going to add value, something that will make you feel good. Maybe you’ll start by walking. Or maybe you’ll practice some bodyweight squats — just 10 at a time. Try some basic calisthenics or practice some natural movement.
Learn to enjoy what you do. Training shouldn’t be something you dread.
Once you’ve established some good habits and can stick with them — then you can look to expand your scope or volume.
