SET GOALS TO KEEP YOU MOTIVATED
What would you like to accomplish?
You can think about having two or three different kind of sports, especially if you are easily bored with something (like me). I really like the combination of Crossfit and running. I never liked gymnastics in high school because we always had to compete with each other, and I never cared if we won or not. That’s not a teamplayers attitude of course. But I do like other people and the motivation I get from them. So Crossfit is my social thing: everyone is super nice and helps each other. When we do an exercise I get fired up. I’m entirely focused and do not have time to think about anything else other then ‘I need to survive this’. Running on the other hand is something I love to do alone. It gives me the time to think about everything that goes on in my life, clear my mind of negative thoughts and plan my activities for that week. In both sports, I can set goals for myself: lift a bit heavier every time or train to run a marathon. I think it’s really important to think about what you want to accomplish, besides losing weight or getting a more toned body. Talk to your trainer about this, especially in the beginning. Tell him or her what you would like to change in your life, and they will want to help you get there. You don’t have to do this alone!
