A lot of people start new workout regimes with big dreams. They see themselves as being super fit by the end of their new plan but are often left disappointed. It happens a lot – but why?
Mistakes That Keep You From Becoming Super Fit
In today’s guide, we’re going to talk you through many of the reasons why your workout could be failing. With a little luck, your new knowledge will help you build a super fit body.
1⃣ You Don’t Turn Up Every Day
Your fitness regime should be as natural to you as taking a shower or eating a meal. It should become part of your life, and you need to focus on doing something every day.
Try to see a new workout regime as a lifestyle change, rather than a fix to a problem. Doing so will help you place a greater importance on your workouts and exercise.
There will be no more dropping a session here or there, as you need to put that time aside. The result? Your new attitude will help you smash through your original goals. And once you incorporate exercise into your daily routine, it will feel strange to go without it.
2⃣ You Forget About Nutrition
Healthy and nutritious eating is going to have a much bigger impact on your chances of getting fit than your workouts. Too many people focus on their exercise, rather than the food they are consuming.
If you want to be super fit, you have to embrace both challenges, together. They both work in harmony to give you the results you are looking for, and a vigorous workout can be spoiled entirely by a bad meal afterward.
3⃣ You Don’t Enjoy Your Workouts
People like, and react better, to different things. While most can put up with anything short-term, it’s important to do something you love doing when working out.
Don’t like the gym? Then try body weight exercises at home. Competitive nature? Try team sports, or something like boxing or MMA training to give you an edge. Love being outside? Then choose more jogging or cycling sessions.
Do what you love, and you will have a much bigger chance of completing your goals.
4⃣ You Don’t Prepare
Becoming super fit takes a lot of preparation, from food and meals through to arranging a gym session. Robust preparation will ensure you don’t start to backtrack – which will happen when things start to slip.
5⃣ You Give Up
There are probably millions of weight loss and fitness goals established on new year’s eve every year. And the vast majority of them are forgotten about before it gets to February.
It all starts with missing a session, and then another, and so on. Until, of course, it seems silly to continue. You can’t afford to be like everyone else, though, if you want to be super fit.
Yes, there will be times when you miss a session. But, that doesn’t mean all your previous work has to suffer. Just be nice to yourself about the odd slip up and get back on track as soon as you can.
If you want long-term success, dealing with minor blips in a positive way is going to help.
