People regularly ask us how we keep to it, how we persevere. Then the only answer is: discipline, commitment and results. Somehow we all know this already, but thanks to Discipline Sports, I’ve really been able to get this into practice.
Often you start with a good intentions and full of motivation with your workout routine, but often you get demotivated, or you think you have to spend too much time on it, or you do not feel like it, or you come to the conclusion that the desired results are not achieved. The consequence: less motivation to go to the gym, which is something you obviously want to prevent. Your willpower can literally leave you. I also do not always want to go, but regularity and discipline is the best way to prevent that. After two or three weeks your discipline becomes routine. You do not have to worry about making the decisions every time: will I go to sports now or not? Because you have learned that it is good and after the sport you always feel great! That gives a lot of energy and satisfaction.
But what if the results don’t come?
Transforming your body is something that takes a lot of time and requires a great deal of discipline. It is important that you are aware of this. Try looking at yourself realistically, compare your old situation with the current situation. Are you feeling any better? Are you able to perform better or do more than when you started? Do not expect to achieve your final goal after only a few weeks. But see the small steps. This helps enormously.
Willem started learning pull ups six months ago. He could do two at the beginning and in the meanwhile he is at ten. That cost him six months, which might look like a long time, but it is a huge achievement. If you don’t even see the little steps, then check if your training schedule is right for you. It is important that all muscle groups get enough rest for example and that you have a good combination of workouts. There are several websites that can give you good training schedules. In addition, I highly recommend a personal trainer because I’ve noticed the difference and I feel so much better!
Soon we will publish some nice workoutroutines, but for now two little movies with Willem (pushup with clapping hands) and me (situp or crunch with ten kgs extra) in action! Enjoy…
You can find lots of nice workouts on PopSugar.
Sports is part of a healthy lifestyle, but your eating habits are at least equally important. More about that soon…
