♀WHO WORKOUT TOGETHER

START YOUR 2020 HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

Often you wonder why at times it is rather challenging for you to be motivated, consistent when it comes to your health and fitness goals. 

 

Perhaps, maybe you're  personality would thrive more in a group setting or finding a partner to buddy up with. Not everyone is the same and some find it harder to workout on their own vs joining a Buddy / ladies group setting.

_________________________________

Ladies, if you’re trying to get back into the fitness health routine, ask yourself what do you enjoy doing when you move, what type or form of fitness motivates you? Or are you more prone to being part of a group / fitness setting. Then perhaps it’s time to explore buddying up with your fellow sisterhood, working out in group setting potentially could allow you to be more focussed, especially when you feel there is a slight lack of motivation coming from your end. 

_________________________________

However, key is to WANT to make the change yourself 1st, no one can do it for you.

Then you explore your wants & needs, thereafter find your “tribe” people who share the same mindset, especially buddying up allows you to have more commitment to a specific fitness routine: “Working out with a buddy or a group of other ladies carries a plethora of intertwined benefits that include enhancing your focus, consistency, duration, inspiration along with motivation.

_________________________________

It’s often found that when you're performing exercises with someone who you perceive as a little better than you, you tend to give more effort than you normally would alone, this to me is seen as a healthy competitive way of pushing yourself. Not comparing... this is the unhealthy competitiveness... we want to keep it at the positive level, therefore also consistently motivating one another.

_________________________________

Your workout your goals, your buddy is there for support, ensure consistency/fun and motivation. It is also a way for you both to be accountable.

_________________________________

Don’t misspend your energy focussing on others, how they look/dress etc. Less time talking/looking/comparing/gossiping & more on yourself, appreciate your PRESENT moment, at the end of the day NO ONE IS PERFECT. Focus on the YOU 

_________________________________

You will only get fitter stronger by being present in that moment/be one with yourself.

TOP tips:

  • Before you go out for the day. List three of your amazing strengths. Repeat them in the mirror and smile.

  • When you’re ready for your workout, listen to your body, hydrate, know you made the positive move already by getting there.

  • Focus less / on others and more on yourself. If you want to slap a bit of mascara / blush on before, go ahead. 

  • Do however dress in comfortable workout clothes that make you feel good, especially clothes that suits your beautiful figure, less in your face prints is key, have simple colours. Black is number one for working out.

  • Sweat... who cares.. we all sweat. It shows you’re trying.

  • Be Kind to yourself & people around you.

  • Consistency is key. Remember it is quality over quantity.

  • Accountable for your actions.
