How TO avoid the Boredom of the gym!

Heard this little phrase again yesterday during a consultation.

I find the gym boring.

You know what it is.

Being someone that easily becomes bored and can be boring (I’m ok with that) I get it.

Now lets look at what boredom actually is.

“boredom is an emotional or psychological state expereinced when an individual is left without anything in particular to do, is no tinterested in his or her surroundings, or feels that a day or period is dull or tedious.” (thank you wikipedia)

^^^^^Read that first bit again^^^^^

See you can change your emotions or the way you think.

just takes a bit of honesty and getting a bit out that comfort zone.

I’ll tell you why people find the gym boring.

1. They don’t have a goal to train towards and i’m not talking about just wanting to tone up and lose weight.

2. They have no idea what do when they get there so float around not achieving anything.

3. They don’t track their results. It’s like not keeping the score in sport pointless.

4. They give up to quick. despite what you read you can’t get a 6 pack in 6 minutes.

5. Excuses come back in and you go back to what you did before.

I don’t actually love the gym.

I go because it keeps me fit for football and my clothes fit better when i’m in shape.

So whats your goal?

Frustration is not going to get you results.

Having a goal, a plan and a programme will.

Here’s a way of doing it for Free in January


P.S I’ll be closing entries tomorrow so act fast
