I Love Kickboxing is looking forward to a new year of being a part of your transformation! For whatever happened last year, let’s make this year the best ever experienced. And for any fitness challenge, we are here for support and coaching!
“To become fit” challenges everything about a person. Not only does an individual train physically, but mentally as well. In fact, what a person thinks can affect what s/he does next. For all those days of tempting to skip work out time or caving into old eating habits, a person also develops mental toughness for every negative thought overcome.
When struggling to go to the gym or a kickboxing class, it is great to try to counteract with positive thinking; however, it is even better when the reasons for the negative idea are solved. For example, detected reasons to wanting to skip exercise include feeling tired or stressed from school/work, having no ride, feeling cozy, having muscle soreness, and/or having no time. Whatever the excuse, they can feed into negative reasons of why someone would want to skip a work out day. It is not bad to skip a day here and there to give your body a break, but to cave in once tells the mind that it is fine to replicate.
Overcoming negative thoughts are not easy, and sometimes it takes every ounce to push self forward – but it will be worth it in the long run!
