Monday Motivation: Own Your Goals

February 25, 2019
In Fitness

In my opinion, the most crucial step in accomplishing your fitness goals is owning your goals – allowing yourself to truly believe in what you want to achieve and committing to the idea that achieving this goal is possible.  It’s easy to let outside influences (other people’s opinions, our own insecurities, and the little life mishaps that our outside of our control) be an excuse to take a step back from your fitness goals. When we learn to take responsibly for where we are currently at, despite if we can or cannot control what’s going on around us, it helps us to become actively conscious and responsible for taking the small actions necessary to make our dream a reality.


“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle.


This week I challenge you to take small steps towards one goal – whether it’s trying a different weight size with those bicep curls, or making it a point to squeeze in even a 15 minute HIIT workout before or after work. It’s the small actions done consistently each day that equal big changes down the line.


Here are two more workouts for the start of your week when you need a little extra motivation on that Monday!
