Lately, many people have to come to me with problems they face with training. What a lot of people don’t realize is that everyone has different needs and concerns. What we all have in common though, is the desire to better ourselves. Whether it’s from weight loss to obstacles and individual facets when training. The goal to better our self is predominant. We all do it for different reasons. Some do it for an upcoming wedding or beach vacation. Others do it for health reasons or for their children, but what we need to do above all of that, Is do it for ourselves.
Some reasons for training have merit, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to feel good about what we see in the mirror when no one else is looking. Some reasons for training are most certainly better than others and are more motivating.
The goals you set and the reasons for your training should not only tone your body but give a tune up to your entire lifestyle and long term success. It’s always recommended that you chose quality reasons to lose weight. Just make sure your training for good reasons!
The #1 reason people ask me for help training is because they feel “fat.” It’s awesome that you want to change your life but don’t be one of the people that hit the gym, or cardio machines, hard after over indulging in eating. Yes this can help you get back on track but don’t punish yourself! Training shouldn’t feel like torture. When you do this, you are completely missing how awesome training is! You should train to push yourself harder, don’t punish yourself! This only leads to unhealthy habits later.
The other main reason is to get “SKINNY.” These two scenarios seem similar but they are so different! (I could go on and on about what skinny is but that would just start a rant!) There is again nothing wrong with wanting to look good! Training can definitely help you get there. PLEASE, just do not look at training as a way to fit into a certain size no matter what extremes you are going to, to get to that “Skinny” goal. Training is important for everyone no matter what shape and size. Don’t use training as a temporary fix because it is so much greater than that! Change your mentality! These are unhealthy reasons to train, and will lead to motivation problems. Even “skinny” people need to train for their health and well being. Refocus. There’s nothing wrong with working out to feel more confident about your body, but it’s not the only reason to do it. Make a list of benefits that matter to you and NO one else. It’s your body, it does not belong to anyone else.Stay strong and Stay FOCUSED!
