Don’t think. DO!

Is “thinking” distracting you from achieving your goals

 I’m going to hit you with a couple of thoughts today .. about not thinking .. huh!

First a quote, from Michael Phelps.. “We all love to win, but how many love to train” and a second quote from Gurdjieff the Armenian mystic, “Don’t think of results, just do” I think Yoda may have studied his works..

The point for me is this.. The act of “thinking” about the items on our wish list distracts us from the path we need to follow to achieve our chosen end result. So chose the path, then focus only on the training necessary to get there. Train persistently, don’t sweat the small stuff.. the only thing you need to monitor each day is, did you take action today or not.. Did you eat right? Did you train right? If not, do it NOW don’t procrastinate.

Life will often divert you from what you consider to be ideal circumstances. This is to be expected, just make smart adjustments and enjoy the journey, success will follow!

Live healthy, live strong!
Bart.

Zenfit Tip of the Day

Zenfit Tip of the Day 

 
Anything you do outside brings the elements into play. Wind, hills, and other variables… Plus changing scenary helps keep the boredom out of the workout. It’s no fun just staring at the wall all the time, so get outside, dress for the elements and add a sense of play to your routines. When you do train inside choose a program that varies and stays fresh. This keeps you motivated and progressive.
 

Zenfit Tip of the Day

Zenfit’s Tip of the Day 04/12/12:

 
When working to increase lung capacity and overall respiratory and cardiac health choose short burst challenges like sprints to create an adaptive response. When you achieve oxygen debt you are asking your body to change and in response it does. Things to look for when doing a short burst challenge correctly. Do you feel winded after each exertion period? Are you Panting? Do you feel like you have pushed yourself? If you respond with a yes you are headed in the right direction.
 

Zenfit Tip of the Day

Zenfit’s Tip of the Day for 11/30/12:

 
With the cold weather approaching it is important to be prepared for that outdoor hike or training session. Dress to feel slightly cool before you start your activity. Layer clothing to adjust for body heat and tem…
perature changes. Moisture is your enemy. The use of base-layered clothing made from fabrics that are designed to wick moisture away from your skin will keep you dry and warm for the duration of the workout. Added suggestion.. never wash wicking fabrics with fabric softener, it cloggs the fibers and will eventually cause the gear to stink no matter how may times you wash it.Be proactive and prepare to get the most joy out of your winter training and activities.
