You will not meet your fitness goals overnight.
Be patient, be consistent and dedicated. You will not meet your fitness goals if you quit after one hard workout.
Do not do too much too soon, you can cause more harm than good. Your physical abilities need to develop at a steady rate.
Over time you will notice your improvements and so will other people. You will be able to train harder for longer. It’s a great feeling at this point. Exercise will no longer feel like a chore.
Two women who I train made me think about this last night. One said that when she started training with me that it might not last long for her as she gets bored easily and the desire to exercise may fizzle out. She has done around 10 weeks of work with me now and showing me more and more determination with every session. She’s now getting more of a buzz as she is seeing results herself.
The other comes to me for boxing sessions, she is an ex England rugby union player so athletically she was already strong and at a good fitness level. She has gone from turning up and just smashing the pads around for fitness, to learning good boxing techniques and picking things up quickly.
Both in their own ways, have gone from nothing to stepping up their training. One never exercised, within the space of a few months she’s now training a few times a week. The other had not done much boxing before, now she’s learning real boxing combinations while learning to cut off the opponent in the ring.
Don’t give up on yourself!
