What's Your Fitness Mantra?

Sometimes we all need a little extra push to get, or keep, us working hard toward our goals- a fitness mantra can do just that!

A fitness mantra is any phrase, slogan or message that motivates and/or inspires you to:

  • Stay on track 
  • Get up and go to the gym
  • Get through a tough workout
  • Work a little harder
  • Lift heavier
  • Stay focused
  • Say no to temptation

A fitness mantra will not only encourage you, it will allow you to replace negative thoughts or feelings with positive messages. Research shows that those with a positive outlook are not only healthier and more inspired to reach their goals, they are also more likely to exercise. Having a positive mantra can also help you better visualize yourself reaching success and can help you work harder to accomplish your health and fitness goals.

SO WHAT IS YOUR FITNESS MANTRA? Here are a few of my favorites. Share yours below! 

Be Fearless

Welcome to my website and to the first of many blog posts! My first post is about fear because for some reason making this website/blog and sharing it with the world scares me to death. Why? I have no clue. In trying to understand my fear of putting together this website, I really wanted to know what fear was. The best definition of fear I saw that was relevant to me was “an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.” Yes I think we can all agree that fear is unpleasant, who wants to be fearful all the time? Not me. What really stuck out to me was that fear is "a belief"- somehow I believe that this website/blog is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. I’ve created this unpleasant emotion and I am finally ready to conquer it! The blog is a way for me to face my fear head on so that soon this fear will be non-existent.

So what are you fearful of? I encourage you to pick one fear (we all have many), really try and understand the reason for this fear, then make a plan to conquer it! This will not be easy but I think we can all agree that the process will be worth it.
