Staying Inspired

We can all hit low points in training and in life, so it’s important that we stay inspired and have things that can help re-inspire us when in need.

There are several key things that can help;

  1. Having a positive peer group, surrounding yourself with positive people who lift you up and encourage you when in need is essential when needing that necessary inspiration. Even if that means joining classes or groups, find a way to meet like minded people.
  2. Setting goals, small ones are as important, as well as larger ones. The bigger goals give us something to aim for, whilst the smaller ones allow us to see our progress along the way.
  3. Change with change, when things become stagnant and uninspiring it can be time to create a change or find a new way. There are many opportunities in life, we just have to step out to find them. If we stay in same lane too long, we may just miss them. Don’t be afraid to diversify, you never know if something new will work for you unless you try.

I hope you find these few tips helpful if you have been struggling with staying inspired in your training or with life in general.

Remember there is always a way, look for it and you will find it. 🙏💛

2.) Body weight training – This time can actually be a great opportunity to explore more bodyweight training. This can be as simple as push ups and sit ups and can be adapted to any level. Always warm up and cool-down, and with some simple exercises you can make an easy to follow workout for 20 mins, 3 times a week. This alone can make a lot of difference. For more advice please get in touch.

3.) Get outdoors – This time is also a great opportunity to get back in touch with nature and enjoy all it has to offer. So try to make the most of it while you have the time.
