The hard parts about committing to the FITT for Travel Program have been making the time and then sticking with the schedule. So, I’ve come up with some strategies.
Embrace the gym workout. The nice thing about doing your exercise routine in a gym is that the environment is a controlled one. For temperature alone, it’s been great to be inside exercising where it’s cool. I also like the variety of equipment. And the YWCA Health and Fitness center is a gorgeous facility.
Make a schedule. If it’s Tuesday, then I know I have to arrive early to work to get my workout in. If it’s Saturday, then I just roll into my workout after training my clients.
Make notes – mental or physical. Keeping track of what is working and what isn’t will keep you both motivated and on top of anything that needs to be tweaked.
Focus on your goal. Too much time to think on “do I work out, or not?” is of no use.
It’s best not to think about it… just start. It works every time. Think of this as a metaphor for life.
So there you have it. Remaining consistent and sticking to the schedule and plan is a great way to inch toward your goal. Remember to focus, commit and just start. Really, don’t over think this. In all the years I’ve been doing this, I’ve never heard anyone say, “that workout was a waste of time”. They never are. And just know, you’ll feel better at the end.
