3 KEYS TO BEING MENTALLY PREPARED FOR A WORKOUT
1> WHAT IS YOUR OUTCOME?
Refer back to your goal setting and have a look at your outcome? What do you want to achieve?
2>WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO TO ACHIEVE IT?
-What specific exercise?
-How long for?
-What exercise will I do today and tomorrow and for the week?
- Should I eat a snack first?
- Drink plenty of fluid.
3> TAKE TIME TO REVISIT THE WEEK
Its a great idea to sit down for an hour once per week and revisit your outcome from the previous week and see if the actions you took were in line with the outcome. OR IN OTHER WORDS. Did I do what I planned to? Why was it good or why wasn't it? What am I going to do this week to make it more interesting, fun, challenging, simple? If you are SERIOUS about GETTING FIT and in BETTER SHAPE this mental attitude is where it starts. Know your path to fitness and monitor it.

4> ONLY FOR THE CURRENTLY UNDER EXERCISED POPULATION
If you have not been exercising for quite some time or have been doing a little bit here and there like once a fortnight or month ... GET REAL... its your life and your health so look after your body...HOWEVER DO NOT PUNISH YOURSELF FOR BEING SLACK OVER THE LAST 4 YEARS by exercising like an absolute maniac to try and catch up. It is all about creating good habits and finding a passion for health and physical wellbeing. Start with small amounts and beginner exercises daily. Stay active as often as possible and notice what you are enjoying and what you are not. If you don't like running slow and steady for 30 minutes because you find it dead boring DON'T DO IT, choose something else instead...or vary it up. Set yourself a challenge. Here.
Run for 5 minutes fairly steadily with your skipping rope in hand.
Skip for 2 minutes
Jog for 5 minutes
If you see a hill run up it fast like you have a big monster chasing you. If you see some trees dog in and out of them. Be like a child and be fascinated with moving and changing direction and sprinting.
