See how far you’ve come
Assessing your progress since you first began will help you stay motivated and strive for continued success, says sports expert and co-founder of Sports Performance Center Ltd., Colin Berenhaut. Here are some tips for choosing—and sticking to—a training program that’s right for you:
• Do what you enjoy. You’re more likely to stick with a workout if you get some enjoyment out of the activity.
• Choose a couple of goals to focus on. (Choose only a couple of training parameters.) Don’t overwhelm yourself with trying to fix everything at once.
• Begin slowly. You’ll only get discouraged if you can’t maintain that initial level of intensity.
