ARE YOU HAVING FUN IN YOUR WORKOUTS?
How demanding is your job? Are you up on your feet all day logging miles or stuck behind a desk trying to solve the world’s problems? Are you exhausted at the end of the day and if so, how do you change this? Keep reading, we may have an answer for you.
Change your mindset toward your gym time and your workouts in general. Don’t show up exhausted and ready to hit the bed, change your attitude. (How many times has your mother told you that?)
Before you get out of the car, take a few deep breaths and focus on something positive. Put a smile on your face and get ready to have some fun!
Focus on the fact that you are no longer at work or dealing with an issue, but instead about to add health/performance/self improvement and it’s now “You” time.
Make sure to fuel accordingly. If you are in a caloric deficit your neuro transmitters could be low, affecting your mood. Fueling with processed foods and sugars can have your hormones out of balance putting you in shut down mode. Get some lean protein and a few complex carbs in you about an hour before. Not a huge meal but something to give you energy.
Be Mindful! Every time you walk through those doors at CFK remind yourself why you’re there. Remind yourself to have fun. Heck, isn’t that half the reason you do this in the first place?
By focusing on your attitude and consistently showing up things will change. When you have fun, you’ll be more consistent, when you’re more consistent, you’ll get more results. More results brings even more fun, you get the picture…
CrossFit and the rest of our programs, are designed to improve your life. If you’re not having fun you’re missing out on the best part of our programing and results may suffer. The more fun you have, the better your results will be, it’s a proven fact!
See you on the other side of the barbell!
