Fitness Tip: Don’t Skip a Day In the Gym
Written By Jeffrey T. Spaeth, LMT, CPT
The famous quote by Rae Foley, “I always feel sorry for people who think more about a rainy day ahead than sunshine today,” makes the point to always keep a positive outlook on things. The philosophy is helpful when it comes to fitness and staying on task in the gym.
A positive outlook, no matter the goal, includes being able to stay in the moment – don’t worry about tomorrow, it will take care of itself. Focus on the workout routine for the day and getting it done!
While it’s easy to skip a day and put off working out until tomorrow, the next day becomes the next and the pattern continues. Before long you realize a week or two has gone by and little has been accomplished.
A good rule of thumb is to get something done, even if it’s 10 minutes on the treadmill! A little goes a long way on a consistent basis. You’ll be surprised with the results. Then once you get the blood flowing, it becomes easier to stay motivated.
