Attitude is everything when it comes down to the things we want to achieve in life. If we think we can’t do something, we won’t. If we think we can do something, and work for it to make sure it does happen, guess what? It proabably will.
Your mental attitude when it comes down to working out is just as important. I have many clients who come into the studio and confess to me that they workout until it starts to get hard, and then they stop. Why is that? The truth is, your body might in fact be tired, but your brain is telling your body that it is past it’s threshold, and you listen. While your Personal Trainer Portland has a job to prove to you that you can in fact do more than you think, you have to believe it as well.
Here are some tips to keep in mind while you’re working out, so that you can keep progressing to your goals.
1. Don’t let the negative thoughts win. Immediately replace the “I can’t” with “I can!”
2. Focus on why you’re doing this in the first place. If you didn’t push past the uncomfortable, you wouldn’t get to where you want to be.
3. Surround yourself with people who support you in your goal. When you keep positive people and relationships in your life, your positivity will only flourish.
