2015: The Year of Smart Training
2015: The year of “SMRT” training.
Let’s train S.M.R.T this year!
Supportive. Training is just as much about the mental challenges as the physical ones we endure everyday. In order to be successful, we must support ourselves and our peers. Support your own goals by sticking to them. Looking in the mirror and loving what you see EVERYDAY feels so much better than the MOMENTARY pleasure we gain as we drift further from success. Negativity is everywhere, look beyond those people. Surround yourself with those who believe in your goals and be the person others want to be surrounded by.
“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.”
Meaningful. Stop looking around at everyone else. Stop reading the magazines that tell you what to do or how to look. Stop doing what everyone else is doing just for the sake of fitting with the “norm.” There is no “norm.” Create your own by asking yourself “why?” Why do you get yourself out of bed and to the gym bright and early or after a long day? Is it friends/family, kids, a big event or accomplishment you wish to achieve? Whatever it may be, it is YOURS and that makes the success so much sweeter than any words can describe.
“The starting point of all achievement is desire.”
Realistic. Anything is possible, right? Possible doesn’t mean free ride. Dream big but know what it takes to reach your goals. Don’t WHINE if you aren’t willing to give up the WINE. If your training and nutrition don’t match your goals, maybe you need to revisit one of them. The most important aspect of this is patience. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither were you. Set your goals, train accordingly, and be patient. The magic WILL happen.
“Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.”
Transforming. Make it a year of many transformations, of lifestyle changes. Just because you drop a pants size or lose a few pounds, doesn’t mean its time to revert back to life as it was. Training, nutrition, and setting goals aren’t meant to end after one month or even a year. We are forever changing, forever growing and adapting. So keep the smile on your face when you look in the mirror, be confident in throwing away last years sizes; do what it takes to MAINTAIN the new you. After all, it’s a LIFESTYLE change, not a quick fix.
“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”
