Love for fitness is no different than love in a relationship
This Valentine’s Day recognize the success you create at Amenzone can strengthen your personal relationships if you begin to parallel them with the love you maintain for fitness.
1. DON’T JUST FIND ANY PARTNER, FIND THE BEST PARTNER
You can immediately recognize a person who will be fit for life by the way they approach fitness. Find a partner who shares the same values and goals as you do, who mirrors your strength, enthusiasm and passion. Find someone that you feel comfortable with, someone whom you can depend on, and someone who you can look towards for inspiration. Never hurts if the person is honest, supportive and tons of fun to be around either. Are we still talking about training partners? Yes, so be sure they are respectful of boundaries.
2. THE TIMES YOU DESPISE YOUR PARTNER REQUIRES THE MOST CONSISTENCY
We’ve all been there. You’re tired, sore, it’s Friday or there’s a big game on and the last person you want to see is your partner: but you hit Amenzone anyways. Consistency is a true testament of one’s character. The instances you want to throw in the towel on your partner, but remain supportive, thoughtful and understanding; is what defines a strong and lasting relationship. Stay committed to your partner and focused to your core values and goals you set.
3. KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE
A successful relationship requires discipline and focus, beyond the walls of Amenzone and outside of the times you are together. Understand the power of focus and remain strong while away from your partner. Develop a strong connection with someone who loves you and will give you the love that no other person, place or thing could replace.
4. REMEMBER YOUR WHY
Never forget the reason why you started Amenzone and also how it felt to achieve something you worked so hard for. Remembering your why allows you to become more focused during times when you’re burnt out, tired and sore. While your first intentions to get in shape may have been for some type of vanity purpose, in the end, the real result was the desire to inspire yourself, to become a better person.
When you are with someone for a long time, you tend to forget the reasons why you are together. Don’t ever forget why you fell in love and never underestimate the strong foundation of a rocky house, sometimes it’s this foundation that will save you from breaking.
5. DON’T GET STUCK IN A ROUTINE
Nothing is worse than doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Just like a relationship, keep your training at Amenzone fresh and exciting so you stay engaged, intrigued and stimulated. Try different trainers with different training methodologies, try new exercises, try new classes and welcome instability! Don’t avoid challenges like most people do: understand that in order to grow, you can’t be a winner if you are complacent.
