The best advice we give to people when they ask if Community Fitness is right for them is this:

Figure out what works for you!

The best form of exercise is the kind we can be consistent with. Many of us have experimented with fitness regimes that we have not been able to maintain for any period of time. Don’t give up! Any “failure” to follow through is really just information about what does and doesn’t work for you.

Evaluate what works & try something different

Here are some ways to evaluate failed attempts at fitness, and try something different that may work better for you or new things to consider:

  1. If you have FAILED when you don’t have accountability, CONSIDER buddy up with someone you see in the gym in your class who is motivated to get healthy (or work with a Coach in some individual sessions).
  2. If you have FAILED at working out in the morning, CONSIDER trying evening workouts.
  3. If you dread exercise, it makes it a lot harder to go to class. Find something that makes you feel excited. To do this, you may have to be willing to try new movements. We make more improvement in our weaker areas faster than you might think.
  4. Work on your mindset. Waiting to feel motivated means you will be sitting around for a long time. Practice pushing yourself to workout when the true desire is not there. MOVEMENT creates motivation. There is no way around this.
  5. Be afraid and do it anyway. The only way out is through.

If you follow these 5 Factors of Health we’ve been talking about, listen to your coaches, and be consistent in the gym 3-4 days a week for 3 months, I guarantee you will reach your goals, be fitter and happier. We’re rooting for you to win!
