3 Tips To Help You Start A Fitness Program

January 7, 2022

Starting a fitness program is tough for anyone. You don’t need to make it harder for yourself than it already is with self-sabotaging thoughts.

“I’m so unfit”

“I haven’t done anything in so long!”

“This is going to hurt”

How much less stressful would it be if you DIDN’T judge yourself about where you are “currently at”…. or DIDN’T feel guilty about what you “haven’t done to date”..

So instead of feeling guilty of fearful, heres what I suggest you try instead.

1. TAKE THE FIRST STEP

Make a call, send an email, purchase an intro offer, walk through the door, buy a new pair of workout shoes. Taking some kind of action often leads to more action – Even if that action step is small!

2. TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF YOURSELF

Don’t put immense pressure on yourself to make multiple earth-shattering improvements (or changes) all AT ONCE. Small improvements made on a regular basis is key. Sure, this approach might be slower, and less impressive…. but its also much more sustainable!

3. TAKE IT EASY TIGER

Theres no need to go from 0km/h to 180km/h in the first week… or month even! This will only increase your risk of injury and your post workout soreness (a little post-workout soreness is inevitable, but you don’t want to feel so sore that’ll it’ll put you off returning regularly!). Heres three ways you can EASE into it:

  • Aim for once or twice a week to start
  • Aim for moderate intensity rather than high intensity to begin
  • Factor in a little active recovery (ie. walk, or gentle swim) on the day after your workouts.
