Today I wanted to discuss three keys to achieving your fitness goals that apply to any field.
We can write the best exercise programming but if we are not consistent with the application of the program our success will be limited. I remember going through my doctoral studies and getting up at 430 am to study every day. To complete my master’s and Ph.D. I had to study daily for six years. Success is a distance race, not a sprint. Be in the game for the long haul.
To be successful we are going to have to apply some effort while we are performing our exercise program. Sometimes that means doing a little bit more work than we did the time before. Sometimes that may mean just showing up and going through the motions. But regardless we do need to put forth the effort to get to the exercise facility and put in the work.
To achieve success we must embrace that routine is necessary. Find a dedicated time that you can exercise and for many that may be to exercise first thing in the morning before the distractions of the day begin.
In conclusion, these three keys are certainly not all-encompassing but they will get you started on your path to achieving your health and fitness goals.
