Working out hard doesn’t guarantee that you will get the results that you are looking for. In fact it may be what is keeping you from actually hitting your goals.
I get it, almost every guru out there is telling you no pain no gain. Your workout must look like this or you will never see or heaven forbid keep your results. I was that girl if I wasn’t sore after every workout or felt my soul leaving my body. Was it a workout?
Let me ask you this, does everyone who does those hard, crazy ass workouts get results? Are they able to keep up that pace for years and years to come?
Nope! You are crushing it in the gym, with little to nothing to show for it. In fact you may even look the same or a little fluffier.
When I was working full time in the gym, I’d see the ladies flocking to the Body Pump classes or spin classes for years thinking that if they kept going they would change their bodies. Yet year after year they looked the same.
What most women fail to realize is that working out hard is like putting water into a bucket with a hole in it. Sure initially it may feel good, and you love what you see in the mirror, at first. But have you fully considered that the harder you workout the more your body adapts and you’ll have to keep finding ways to push your body to its limits in order to get results.
Maybe you are feeling like this right now, working out once felt like a joy. You loved it but now it’s feeling like a job. That is how I felt my crazy ass workouts sucked the joy right out of my love for working out. Does this sound like you?
Maybe you keep going to the gym for a while, but you don’t look forward to it. The fear of gaining back the weight keeps you going or maybe it’s just become what you do, either way how long can you keep this up?
Maybe you tell yourself that you have to go to the gym at least 5 days a week, but given your schedule it’s just to fucking hard to keep week after week, month after month. I know many of my clients felt that way prior to working with me.
This is your permission slip. Instead of judging your workout by duration and intensity have you fully considered judging by consistency and intensity?
Making the switch can be hard, I can be set in my ways as well. I was burnt to a crisp and was talking to another trainer at my gym. She was training for a kettlebell certification and said did I want to hold her accountable. I said sure I needed that little boost.
The workouts took less than 20 minutes but left me feeling challenged. It’s called Metabolic Conditioning. I was lifting weights which I loved combined with cardio with what I could take or leave. Most importantly it got me back in the gym, my happy place, I was moving my body and it felt good versus making sure I burned at least 400 calories, an amount of calories I made up years ago to make me feel like I had a good workout..
These workouts helped me to stop chasing time and constantly working out to really focusing on the intensity and consistency I was bringing to my workouts. Right now you have a choice. You can continue working hard with little to nothing to show for it. Actually that’s what most women will choose to do out of fear of the unknown. Or you could be that person who wants to find joy at the gym again, looks forward to your workouts, just feel good in their body again and finally sees the success you have been looking for with less time and effort.
