Hope you’re having a great day!
First a quick reminder for you if you’re confused, intimidated, or simply just don’t know where to start when it comes to working out and exercise.
I’m hosting a FREE Fit Fun Beginners 101 Class to working out this Saturday at Inursha Fitness 11am.
If you’d like to learn some basic results getting exercises an learn the basic of working out without a bunch of pressure.
To attend just reply to this newsletter.
And feel free to bring a friend and share this with anyone who would like to attend.
And second for you veterans. I get it. It’s cold, the days are short, you’re busy and you don’t feel like exercising.
Not today. Not on a Monday in December.
So here are 3 not so celebrated rewards you’ll get form getting your workout in . That are more immediate and go way beyond the numbers on the scale and a smaller dress size(even those are important too)
#1 Better Health
Last week I took a bad step and (I wasn’t even working out!) and went from a running, jumping, exercising freak-to limping and unable to walk in an instant.
It was an in my face reminder that when your health goes. nothing else really matters.
Nothing will alter your quality of life faster than losing your health.
And the number one way to get and maintain your health is consistent exercise.
Exercise is equal to and more powerful in some cases at managing health as prescription drugs. You can check out the article here
NY Times=>Exercise as Potent as Medicine
#2 Increased Confidence
If you’re out of shape and overweight it can take a lot of courage to just get walk into a fitness center or join a fitness boot camp like mine.
These are just some of the concerns new clients have voiced to me
“What if I can’t keep up?” -You’re not supposed to keep up, you’re supposed to do YOUR best. And no one ever gets left behind.
“What if I’m asked to do things I can’t do” -Every exercise has modifications, we’ll show you how to do what you can, and keep you from getting hurt at the same time.
“Is anyone going to laugh at me?” -No but you’re more than welcome to augh with us. Because we know that the more support you have the better you’ll do. And we’re all in this together.
The veterans help the new people, because we remember what it was like.
Just by doing it you’re going to have increased confidence.
Yes, you’ll be out of your comfort zone, and I know that’s not easy. But by doing that you get better. You become a stronger more confident version of yourself.
#3 Goal Achievement
If you’re new to the world of exercise a good place to start is by setting some goals.
They don’t have to be weight goals either. They can be process goals, like I will workout 3 times this week.
If you’ve been at it for some time you can set a goal to
-Increase the weights you’re using on certain exercises.
-Learn one new exercise per week all year long
-Get a partner you can rely on to help push you.
Don’t set unrealistic goals like to run a marathon in 6 weeks. Unrealistic goals just make you frustrated.
And like so many things you get better at goal setting the more you do it.
So set realistic milestones. When you reach them enjoy your accomplishment and then set new goals to take your good health evenfurther.
There’s one last thing I’ll share that I’ve noticed with the goal achievement.
When you transform your body…the journey, the process, the person you become is so much more than another pair of Skinny Jeans or a smaller number on the scale.
It’s as if you become a more confident, more resilient, stronger mentally and better overall version of YOU.
You can’t change the outside without changing the inside. You can’t have one without the other.
I hope if you’re new to this, andwould like some help getting started the right way in a fun supportive environment I’ll see you Saturday.
