Training For Purpose!

Do you know your WHY in the gym? You know, that little whisper in your ear that gets you out of bed or that energy that makes you eager to get to the gym. It's a feeling that your focused for the right reasons, it's important to you, it has impact, and when it's accomplished you know it will be a fulfilling experience.

I"m talking about your training purpose! Now, it's easier said then found because without a lot of thought your training focus can be clear goals, but without substance. I often here " I want to lose 15lbs." and it's true that they do, but there's nothing driving or motivating for this person to see it through, so they often stagnate or fail to accomplish it.

I'm working with a few athletes that have recently found their purpose behind their goals and it's powerful. I have know doubt they'll get and keep their goals alive. For example, "I want to lose 15lbs.", when taking a step further I've uncovered the real reason for the goal itself. Here's a few confessions...

"Honestly, I don't like what I see in the mirror, it bothers me that I'm not where I want to be. Most important, I'm not the role model I want to be for my kids... Something has to change!"
"My weight is effecting my performance in the sport I love. If I only could move quicker or had more energy, I would be a top competitor!"
Finding your motivation and that WHY takes reflection is like peeling away the layers of what makes you, you. But once you find it, it's real and it will support the goals that really matter to you.

Here's a few questions that will help you get started thinking about what's meaningful to you and what drives your training and lifestyle choices.

Goal Setting

1. What are your interests and hobbies? (what gets you excited?)
2. How do you use your fitness outside of the gym?
3. What new skills do you want to learn or develop?

Reality

1. What's working for you at the moment?
2. Why is your health important to you? (what keeps you motivated?)
3. Where is your life out of balance?

Action

1. What do you think you should do first?
2. If money wasn't a restriction for you, what would you do?
3. If time wasn't a restriction for you, what would you do?
