(Not) Running out of time?

Posted: 26th March 2014 by Ingrid in Articles

Does this sound like you? You set up your alarm for boot camp at 5:00am, your bed is extremely comfortable and warm, its -10 degrees outside and you decide to go to 5:15 boot camp instead.  By the time 4:45 rolls around, you get off work and your co workers ask if you want to grab happy hour. Putting off working out is a good way NOT to get fit.  Let’s work together at SGT Peterson’s to prevent this from happening.

1. Invite a friend. Befriending fellow boot campers, or even ask a friend to try it for the first time. This will hold you accountable.

2. Make positive changes for other positive changes to occur. Eat a healthy dinner the night before boot camp, or plan a healthy recovery meal for post work out.

3. Put your money where your mouth is. Book a few personal training sessions.  We hold ourselves much more accountable when money is on the line.  You don’t want to miss a session that you paid for, and you don’t want to let down your trainer.

4. Try to hit the 6:00 am workouts, you’ll find that there is a lot of time in the day. You will have a sense of achievement all day as well.You’re brain function will increase from more blood flow, and your endorphins will be going crazy! Hell, you might even fit in a second work out! (Going for a relaxing walk counts!)

5. Figure out what your excuses are for not working out. Do you need better time management? How many hours a day are you in front of the television (not planking)? What are you doing instead of working out?

6. Its only an hour. Seriously! One hour out of the day, and when you are done, you will feel great!

Health should be everyone’s top priority because without health, we cannot live up to our full potential. Don’t you want to put the best you forward?  Try to follow some of these time management tips and better yourself today.
