3 Step Solution To Change | Seattle CrossFit Coach

 

I can’t believe it’s already September! You know what that means: summer is over, back school, fall is here, football games are in full swing and the weather is turning crisp.  All this adds up to one thing – your training is going to be affected! Whenever there is a change in our routine, the important things in life go through a test. Regarding training you need to ask yourself one question – how important is that to you? For many it has been a routine for years with ups and downs that can be predicted. For others, this is a new found love that is in its honeymoon phase. It is important that you think about it day in and day out. It doesn’t matter what is going on, you are going to get your work out in because it’s that important to you.

 

How is this new season going to affect you? Are you going to start working out again? Are you going to let the dark mornings and cool evenings prevent you from getting to the gym? Or are you going to keep pushing forward and training like you have done all summer long? Whatever your plan is, I have a three step process that is bullet proof, but only if you are motivated.

3 Step Bullet Proof Solution To Working Out

1) Write down on a calendar what your plan is for every day of the month

Once you mentally commit yourself and then psychologically commit you are now setting yourself up for success.  If you have decided (mentally) you are not going to start training then your calendar will reflect that decision also.  So when you mentally prepare and then psychologically prepare you now ready for change.  Change is good.  Dictionary.com defines change as:  to make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of(something) different from what it is or from what it wouldbe if left alone.

2) Start Tracking You Nutrition

Everyone cringes at this step because 99.9% of people who are striving to make changes don’t like it when their diet is  messed with.  So, don’t worry I’m not asking you to change ANYTHING with your diet.  All I’m telling you to do is start tracking what you eat everyday no matter what is its.  My whole point in this is getting you to think about what you put in your body day in and day out.  The more conscience we are about what we are putting in our bodies as fuel the better decisions we make no matter what season we are in.

3) Follow An Already Structured Program

This is the MOST crucial part of my 3 step solution.  Find a program you respect or are interested in and then use it.  If you need a program to follow online for FREE go to my website www.stonewaycrossfit.com/blog.  I post a daily workout Monday through Saturday.  The power behind this step is taking ALL control out of your hands and letting someone lead you.  What I also highly recommend is finding a local program with classes and then join it. That is the best solution compared to following anyone online.  The reason is because everything is already planned out, scheduled and has a professional coaching you. This is way better than any other workout partner because you won’t get an early morning phone call telling you that he/she can’t make it today.  The best part is that there will be many “workout partners” in any class you take that you won’t even know but this will help you way more than you will ever know.

So, what do we do now?  Something is what we do!  If you are deciding to stop being lazy, continue training but to a higher lever or just re-awaking that inner athlete that we all have somewhere deep down inside you need to start something ASAP!  Who knows if your mental motivation will trump your psychological motivation if you don’t act on it TODAY!!
