Own your fitness program:
Have you been following a fitness program? Are you thinking of beginning one? The first question you should answer is why.. Grab a piece of paper and randomly write out every reason you can think of for five minutes.. Now categorize these reasons. This is your first step to identifying your focus. Is it health and wellness? do you just want to look good? Is it for sport?
Once you have identified the reasons you can now select the action. Whatever it is, do your homework. Take on a training program that is sustainable. Not one that will leave you injured or in rehab more often than you are on the floor of the training room or enjoying your activities. If your coach has you doing things that you feel have no purpose in your active life ask WHY!
Remember you own your program and it should enhance your life not endanger it… Sure bones, muscle, and connective tissue heal but weigh the “opportunity loss” when it comes to living. Down time sets you back. Take your ego out of the game and stop doing “crazy shit” to prove a point to yourself, and especially others. Train safe .. enjoy life.
