Time and time again I hear "I didn't want to come tonight but I am so glad I did" or, "I would never be doing 10 more pushups, but I am because you are telling me to" or, " I'd still be in bed sleeping if I didn't have this appointment with you this morning"
What is it about human beings and the lack of desire to do something, which in this case is exercise, that they know will benefit them?
I myself have been guilty of delaying my workouts, I get busy on Fitness Connect or in my garden but in the back of my head I keep having the same conversation, "you need to go hike, you'll feel so much better when you get done", I know that and so I do it and everytime, I'm right!
So what about people who don't go to bootcamp, or don't have a personal trainer or don't like going to gyms, what do they do for motivation? The catch 22 is that if you don't start and continue for at least 10 weeks, you won't "get it" , you won't "feel the relief". But we as humans love finding excuses and we are so great at "I'll do it tomorrows" that we never really get into the groove.
As I tell my clients, I'ts all mental, it's all in your head. you can do it because you are in charge.
