TRACK YOUR PROGRESS
Tracking your progress is a great way to keep you motivated. There are so many different ways to track your progress depending on your goal, wether it’s to hit a new PB, agility, weight loss, muscle growth I could go on forever but find what works for you wether it’s by measurements, photos,skin fold testing, beep test, doing a 200kg dead lift I could go on forever but by keeping track it will keep you motivated when you see your progress.
This is my NUMBER ONE key to achieving success! when working on a current goal or a new one always write them down!! by doing this you are keeping yourself accountable for what you want to achieve. put your goals that you have written down somewhere where you can wee them on a daily basis, wether you write them on your mirror so that is what you see first thing when you wake up, or if its on your screensaver on your phone. this way your always being reminded of your goals.
when you are goal setting you need to be realistic in your expectations, but push a little further that what you think you can achieve! strive to do at least one thing each day toward your goal wether it be big or small any progress is better than no progress!
REST & RECOVERY
this is one topic that a lot of people forget about, Rest and recovery is one of they most important factors when it comes to progress in your program. If your over training, not sleeping enough, not rolling out or just letting your body repair its self it take its toll. Recognise the signs your body is giving you and listen to them. Building recovery time into any training program is important because this is the time that the body adapts to the stress of exercise and the real training effect takes place. Recovery also allows the body to replenish energy stores and repair damaged tissues.
without a challenge there is no growth
find a buddy
Working out with a friend can be really benefical for you, but this all depends on who choose to work with. pick your training buddy wisely, you want to work out with a friend that has a good, positive mind, someone who is going to challenge you and help you.
working out with a friend for me is a great way to learn new exercises and it really helps me take me training to the next level! so choose your friends wisely and you'll notice the difference.

STRUGGLING TO GET OUT OF BED
1. Have your gym clothes set the night before where you can see them
2.If your alarm is set on your iPhone put your phone walking distance away from your bed, this way you have to get out of bed to turn it off
3. Have a plan of attack for the gym, pre write out your sessions or have your classes booked in
