Workout Wednesday #27

This week we take a look at 4 key components to achieving any fitness related goal, whether it's training for a specific event, changing your body composition or just improving overall health and wellbeing.


1. Consistency

Arguably the most important factor, being consistent in training towards your goal is the key to achieving it. It will be the accumulation of your consistent training over time which ultimately leads to your success. Aim for 85% or more consistent training each month and you'll comfortably stay on track to achieving your goal.

 

2. Patience

Patience in the process of effecting change is another key to whether you achieve your goal or not. Nothing will happen overnight and often it can take weeks if not a couple of months for you to see changes and/or results in yourself. Using different methods to track your progress is a great way to keep yourself motivated and on focused.

 

3. Hard work

Nothing worth having comes easily; or so the saying goes. If you want something in life, you have to work for it. The harder you work, the more rewards you will reap and the faster you'll get them too (though not too fast, remember patience); the same applies to fitness. Make a plan and then work at it 100% and you'll get where you want to be.

 

4. Eat right for your goal

Regardless of your goal, nutrition will play a big part. If you don't fuel your body correctly you risk slowing your progress or simply not achieving your goal at all. In order for your body to function and perform it must be fuelled optimally with your goal in mind.
