How to Train like a Winner by Developing Successful Workout Habits
What separates the winners from the losers, is that winners accept that there are no shortcuts to success. Equipped with hard work, sweat, and consistency, the most effective tools for success, winners do whatever it takes to get the job done.
Achieving success in Gymnastic Strength TrainingTM comes down to the decisions that we make on a daily basis. These, in turn, become our habits. Gain insight into the habits of winners, so that you can turn even smallest of efforts into GSTTM success.
Set Your Goals and Take Action
Goal-setting is the single most important skill to acquire when it comes to creating healthy exercise habits. It is here that you will determine which direction you want to go, and more importantly how you will get there. Remember that a goal without direction is just a wish.
Whether your goal is to shed some stubborn body fat or learn how to do a handstand, GymnasticBodies will be by your side each step of your journey!
Here is a GB approved checklist to effective goal-setting:
- Are your goals written in pen and paper?
- How will you measure your progress?
- How realistic is your goal?
- Why is this goal important to you?
Enter Dedicated Exercise Time Into Your Schedule
We get it! Life can get busy at times between work, meetings, or anything that life has to throw your way. Don’t allow your busy lifestyle to interfere with your training. Take your newly set goals and set aside the time to honor your commitment to yourself.
While we often find that we are too busy to workout, this very issue leads to a poor quality of life down the road. Following a structured home workout plan can help keep you accountable with your gymnastics training routine.
This GB Athlete dedicates time to the GB Online Courses and, as a result, can show off his amazing progress!
It should be easy to make time for your GymnasticBodies Training because it can be done from anywhere with little or no equipment. Many GB students choose to workout in the comfort of their own home. This advantage allows you to train GSTTM anytime, anywhere.
Track Your Progress Along the Way
Progress is a powerful motivator for change. It important to remember that progress often occurs in gradual, often unnoticeable increments that add up to major improvements in strength, flexibility, or body composition in the long run.
Let’s say you lost two lbs in your first week following the GB Foundation Series. This measly two lbs may seem negligible at first, but with the continuous effort, you could potentially lose 24lbs in the course of 3 months.
Not only does tracking your progress keep you motivated, but it also serves as a journal of what works best for you. If your workout routine yields progress, then keep doing what is most effective. If you are not making progress then it’s time to go back to the drawing board.
Strengthen Your Social Support System
Social support is your ultimate tool for keeping yourself accountable with your training. Many things in life are even more fun with a friend. You can find social support through many different mediums; such as hiring an experienced coach, working out in a group, or even joining GymnasticBodies online community.
GymnasticBodies takes pride in connecting a worldwide community where like-minded GB coaches and students to draw knowledge and inspiration from. Coach Sommer himself can be spotted on GB Forum, dropping invaluable knowledge and motivation.
