We are 23 days into the New Year, by now, most people have stopped working towards their New Year’s Resolutions or goals already. The hype over the holidays is real for the upcoming year; we aspire to great things, but then we get into January, reality hits, it actually takes work and discipline, we think we don’t have time, we lose our focus or we just forget about what we actually wanted.
“My motivation has worn off”
But, so has everyone else’s.
So why do SOME succeed?
Some succeed while others falter because some realize motivation is the trigger to get you started, but after that is action that keeps you going.
Motivation is like the release of the parachute, you pull it once, then you don’t need that anymore, after that, it’s useless.
You use motivation to decide to change, to set a plan in place, to make the call. After that, it’s action, it’s DOING.
Once you know the things you need to do, you keep making yourself do them and have some sort of system in place to check to see if you are indeed still doing that thing. The more you take action, the stronger your discipline will be for taking said actions.
For me, I hire someone who will hold my feet to the fire, someone who I have to report back to, to check in with, someone who will expedite my results exponentially. I’m pretty disciplined and I can figure out a lot on my own, but if someone has the path created and will help hold me to it to help me get to where I want to go faster, sign me up. It’s also really fun working with someone directly and creating that bond. I have had many coaches over the years and don’t regret a single one.
If you are a member, you have already taken the first step and are a part of the Lair team equipped with a great team of coaches who do care dearly for you and your success! We are always here to help beyond the workout floor.
If you are looking for a little more specific help with fuelling your workouts better, gaining more energy for your day, or improving your body composition, we have coaches who can help speed that up for you:
You can work with one of our certified nutrition coaches who work with clients one on one (online/remotely) to help them reach their health/body composition goals and fitness/performance goals through our program Mission Nutrition. Mission Nutrition has 2 programs: “Macro Tracking” as well as a “Lifestyle”. Macro Tracking is the most precise program requiring food tracking. Lifestyle is a more habits based approach to better eating and lifestyle habits. Our Lifestyle program can develop into macro tracking if the client is ready or can be done completely without weighing/measuring food. You will learn a ton through both programs through working with a coach.
