Summer-Fitness-MotivationThe Worst

  1. “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” – Kate Moss
    Ascribing to low caloric intake is going to hurt you, not help you.
  2. “Unless you puke, faint, or die, keep going.” – Jillian Michaels
    Don’t sacrifice self awareness (long game) for more reps (short game).
  3. “X number of  _____ will get rid of body fat.”
    Spot reduction is a myth.
  4. “Lifting light weights will get you toned; lifting heavy weights will make you bulky.”  False. The “bulky” men and women you see have worked intentionally for their gains.

The Best

  1. “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” – Jim Rohn
    In order to find your fitness motivation and stick with it, you need to make it a part of your life. Shake up your Netflix and chill sessions by bringing the entertainment to the gym on your phone.

    Working out for a week will not get rid of a belly bulge, but missing a workout will not wreck your progress.

    Make a plan and set goals before every workout.

    Break down your long-term fitness goals into small steps and focus on achieving the goals right in front of you.
