Promise Me.

March 23, 2017

Okay, y’all, I am going to apologize in advance for getting on my soap box. I tend to go overboard sometimes on topics that I’m passionate about. 🙂 But then again, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while now: you know that.

Promise me one thing: you will focus and commit during your workouts.

Here’s the number one question I get asked as a fitness professional, “I am not seeing any changes in my body. I’ve been working out every day for the last several years and haven’t gotten stronger or more defined.”

99.9% of the time this is the answer: you aren’t committing to the movements in your workouts. You aren’t present in those moments.

For example, when the instructor says lunge with your right leg. Most of the time people are just doing the movements and going up and down. Don’t go through the movements or settle into the same movement you’ve always done…instead focus on how you can engage more in that lunge. When you lunge, focus on getting your back knee lower to the ground, drawing and engaging your abs, tightening your glutes, keeping your shoulders relaxed and away from the ears….there are many, many aspects of each movement that you can focus on.

You may ask, “Why should I focus?”

Well, that’s because CHANGE comes from focusing and committing. If you are present for your 20-30-45 minute workout, you will start to notice how dialed in you can become and aware of your body. Once you become aware of your muscles, you will start to notice strengths and weaknesses and you can begin to fine-tine and improve.

In my PiYo class, I tend to cue the HECK out of each move because #1) I’m OCD and want to make sure people are getting the most out of their workout and #2) I don’t want people to SETTLE into the move. For example, Warrior 1 (Yoga and PiYo move), don’t just go where you’ve always gone. GO FURTHER. Lunge deeper, hold your shoulders back, tighten your abs. With each move, you can push yourself to a new level.

So, promise me. The next time you workout you will focus on your body and yourself during the entire workout. Ask yourself these questions:

  • How can I go further?
  • What can I do to improve?
  • Am I settling into this move?

If you focus and commit to your workouts, you will start noticing you become stronger and stronger.
