Struggling to find motivation to train in the colder months? You’re not alone! Committing to an exercise routine, for weight-loss or for life, is all about finding a training program that really works for you – both emotionally and physically! Reminding us that ‘summer bodies are built in winter’, Ben, the fitness expert behind BeFit Training, offers his top tips to get back on track and reach those fitness goals…
Many men and women who work up the motivation to exercise do it for the purpose of weight loss.
Weight loss is a powerful motivating tool when an individual feels they’ve hit rock bottom but it’s not enough if you don’t appreciate the process.
That driving motivation will be fleeting if you don’t embrace training, simply going through the motions watching the clock for 45 minutes will see you go from exercising 3 times a week to 0.
Building physical strength, fitness and shaping the body you desire is an important aspect in personal development and becoming the best version of you.
The foundation of a successful life stems from exceeding personal benchmarks with mind and body. In training, you should constantly strive to improve, to set new benchmarks and do today what seemed impossible yesterday. The confidence and momentum gained from pushing yourself out of your comfort zone in the gym flows onto all other areas of your life.
The end result long term will be achieving the goal you set yourself when you begun, but to get there each training session must have purpose.
Your training program must be a balance of strength and conditioning with progressions every few weeks so your body and mind never becomes comfortable and your results never plateau. Pushing yourself to reach the next progression level is all you should be focused on. Whether it’s achieving a benchmark time for a 500m Row or going from air squatting to squatting with weight, those progressions are all you should be focused on.
It is easy to hit a wall but incredibly valuable to climb that wall and keep moving forward to become a more complete athlete and person.
