Paul appreciates the emphasis on safety and form from our coaches!
“The best part about coming to FAST is the professional institution that is the core of the diverse fitness programs. All through learning new exercises, I never feel intimidated because the staff always emphasizes proper form and safety in the gym.
No one class is ever the same, which challenges the competitive spirit in all of us at any age. Connor and the staff are a class that are second to none in the fitness world!”
Happy #MotivationalMonday!! 😊
Part 2 of 10 of “HOW TO STAY MOTIVATED”: Reward yourself ⭐️
A lot of the time people think that in order to be healthy, they have to cut things out of their diets or their day; example: cutting out carbs, limiting their time sitting on the couch watching TV, cutting out alcohol, etc.
BUTTTTTT, this often leads to binging on whatever you’re limiting yourself on. This is why emphasizing rewards is a great method to be sure you stay on track!
An example of this would be allowing yourself some sort of “treat” or reward a few times per week. If you are used to having a glass of wine every night with dinner, and you’re trying to stop that, don’t cut it out completely- allow yourself a glass a few dinners per week, and maybe reduce the frequency SLOWLY🐌 Don’t think that just because you didn’t completely get rid of the habit, you weren’t successful! Slow and steady wins the race, ya know?
Tread lightly around the idea of a “cheat day”, because this “reward” can very easily lead to a complete binge the entire day, which in turn can mess up all the progress you’ve made all week! We will often promote little rewards throughout the week instead of a full day 😊
Ed finds it easy to stay on track with our motivational atmosphere!
“The whole crew at Flahive’s is the best! They are always there for me with whatever questions I have regarding working out, food to eat, etc. Tommy in particular has been a great help to me. Between a great crew and a great group of fellow members, it is easy to be consistent with working out. Thanks everyone at Flahive’s! You guys are the best!!”
Kelly’s little goals help her reach her ultimate goal: HEALTH!
“I LOVE FAST! When I started a little over 3 years ago, I had one goal: to get healthy. Each week, I set goals for myself, and the focus of each goal was to do better than the week before, whether that means picking up a heavier weight or completing more reps. I was intimidated at first, and the only reason I continue to go is because of the awesome trainers. They motivate me to do my best. I have accomplished so much since I started and there are days when I feel like I can conquer anything because I am now strong. Thank you FAST family!”
