Two Keys To Consistent Exercise

I was thinking today about what motivates people to do what they do....I'm not a psychologist so I looked at myself....there's alot of things that have motivated me to do certain things: fear, peer pressure, not wanting to let others down, searching-for-answers, enjoyment, determination, etc.

Why did I start exercising at a young age? We knew nothing about childhood obesity. Here is my exercise program growing up: playing games after school every day at the Boys Club or in the neighborhood until dark and playing sports year-round (and we pretty much walked or biked everywhere we went)! The common thread? I enjoyed both activities---probably too much! I didn't think about heart rates, exercise technique, repetitions, cardio or any of that stuff. Just having fun.

When it comes to exercise, research has proven that you are more likely to stay with your exercise program if you enjoy it. But, no matter how much you enjoy exercise, you still need something else to "keep it going." You guessed it! Determination (perseverance)!

Its the "bulldog mentality" that nothing is going to keep me from reaching my fitness goals. When you have those "bad days," its determination that will pull you through. A GREAT COMBINATION TO STAY CONSISTENT WITH YOUR EXERCISE PROGRAM---ENJOYMENT AND DETERMINATION! Mix in a well-designed exercise and nutrition program and you will "get 'ur done!"

Don't put it off! You owe it to yourself!

Train hard and smarter to reach your fitness goals! I can help you do both!
