So…Who Are You When You Work Out?
I always find it important to ask yourself who you are when doing a specific activity, or at any given moment. So when I’m in the gym or running I think it is important to ask, “Who are you when you work out?” It is important because it sets the tone for your actual goals, it allows you to figure out if who you are in the gym or on the track is in line with who you really want to be, and whether or not you have to change or modify who you are when you work out.
Who I See When I Ask Myself Who Are You When You Work Out
Even now, I still ask myself before each work out, who are you when you work out? I find it important because it sets the tone, motivates me, and puts me in check. I personally have a few different personas when I’m working out. However what helps me most is the mindset that I am an athlete. (I know I am not a paid athlete, but trust me I am an athlete and everyone and anyone can be so if they so choose) I love this mindset as it keeps me motivated, reminds me to push myself harder, and most importantly that I can and will fight through the pain, difficulty, etc. It also makes working out more fun, and as you can see in my last post you will see why it’s so important to have fun while working out.
How To Find Out Who You Are When You Work Out
Well, I believe in order to do that it’s best to figure out what motives you, the things you do like, and what mindset(s) are in line with your current health and fitness goals. As a health coach I teach clients to know who they are when they eat because it will affect tremendously how much you eat, how fast you eat, and in the end how efficiently your body digests and distributes what you eat. Therefore the same goes when you are working out, in that if you can find out which “you” is the most effective you when working out, your results will follow in suit.
In the end we are all different versions of ourselves at different moments and times of our lives. What may work for you for one year, may not work the next. We are ever changing and evolving, yet we remain the same in that we should always ask ourselves “Who are you when you work out?” because that question keeps us on top of our game.
