Put the phone away

We’ve all done it. Checked in, checked updates, checked emails. How can you truly have an effective workout if your on your phone hashtaging beastmode?

Focus, Jedi. It can be difficult tuning the world out for an hour to an hour and a half. But once you do, it’s great.

EffectiveStay the course

Would we set out on a road trip with no map, no GPS, and no destination in mind? Perhaps, if you have the time and truly like to live on the edge. Having a clear idea of what your goals are and envisioning the end results will help give your sessions that extra intensity.

Check Your Ego At the Door

A little competition can go a long way. Watching someone walk in and warm up with the dumbbells you just finished your last set with can motivating. It is for me. #BuildYourself. But strutting around like a boss and stack slamming doesn’t earn you cool points. It only annoys others and will get you some very stern looks from the management concerned about the equipment. Wanna be like a real superhero? Learn how to laser focus .

Get Creative

I once knew this guy who had what he called, “One set of crazy.” Having a plan is crucial. “Leg Day” “Arm Day – All Day,” etc. etc., but think outside the box. I constantly encourage people to color outside the lines. Every once in awhile you just have to do what you need to do. If someone asks you if you normally do squats on back day, just smile and tell them no.

Birds of a Feather

Fly by night workout partners and weekend warrior types won’t cut it. Determination does. In addition to that inner fire, that motivation, it never hurts to enlist the help of those that know what it takes to be pushed.

The Takeaway

Perhaps it’s an upcoming and much needed vaca, a bridesmaids dress, or maybe you just want to look and feel great. Working out is not a chore, but something to look forward to.

Make it count.
